Chris Rea 1983-1986 Dublin pictures from RTÉ Stills Library

Post by andrew fischer » 26 Mar 2015, 12:00

Hi again everyone,

here is a dozen of good pictures with detailed descriptions from the archive of Irish TV/radiobroadcaster, RTÉ.

There are a lot of amazing official information. I have come it across when searching for recordings from Dublin.

The most interesting comment is: This concert (in Dublin in September 1984) was recorded by RTÉ and televised on 8 May 1985 as 'Chris Rea - In Concert'. A still from this shoot was used to illustrate a brief RTÉ Guide article on Rea which was published on 3 May 1985. So, there should be a good video bootleg, can anybody contact RTÉ on this?..

And enjoy:

The public were invited to pledge jobs and money to a job creation fund."
