The Ultimate Celebration of
Christie Hennessy The Platinum Collection

After a hugely successful tour in 2016, that included two sold-out shows at The National Concert Hall in Dublin, the renowned entertainer and RTÉ personality Aonghus McAnally takes his “Celebrating Christie Hennessy – The Platinum Collection” show back on the road for an extended run this autumn. The show recreates the iconic sound of his close friend and is a touching tribute to one of Ireland’s greatest ever singer-songwriters, Christie Hennessy.

Christie delighted audiences at home and abroad until his tragic and untimely death in 2007, aged just 62. In this all-new show, celebrated entertainer Aonghus McAnally brings the Hennessy songbook to life with his uncanny recreation of his close friend Christie’s voice and guitar playing. Featuring all his best loved hits – Messenger Boy, Jealous Heart, Don’t Forget Your Shovel, If You Were To Fall, All The Lies That You Told Me and the iconic Roll Back The Clouds – this magical evening showcases the storytelling brilliance of Christie Hennessy with 22 of his greatest songs.

Inhabiting the role of Christie is particularly poignant for Aonghus as the two were such close friends – Aonghus even delivered the eulogy at Christie’s funeral. Speaking about the show, Aonghus said, “It’s a genuine privilege to share Christie’s incredible music with audiences around the country, and an honour to be part of keeping his spirit alive. Music fans want one more Christie gig, and to be able to recreate that magic for them is one of the most special feelings I’ve ever had on stage. Having played Christie before, maybe the greatest compliment I’ve ever received as a performer was when Christie’s wife Gill came to me after the show in tears, saying it’s like having Christie back again.”
