Mick Foster and Tony Allen are celebrating their 40th Anniversary together in the music industry! They first toured Australia in 1983 and this will be their 19th trip down under.
These charismatic singers have been performing their unique blend of easy listening and folk music and their popularity is proven with their record sales. Between them they have sold 18 million records, making them one of Ireland’s biggest entertainment exports, in the same league as U2, Enya, Boyzone and The Corrs.
Their 24 albums have included the immensely popular The Rambles of Spring, A Bunch of Thyme, Maggie and After All These Years, and have just finished their latest album in time for their anniversary Celebration.
Formed in 1975, this most famous ever singing duo in Irish music history began working on the local music circuits of Ireland and England. Soon with their own special brand of music the duo became hugely popular. In the first year, Foster & Allen recorded their first single, The Rambles of Spring which was a massive hit on both sides of the Irish Sea.
After 40 years, their popularity continues to flourish and fans often travel long distances to catch their shows as they tour around the country.
