Ronan has announced that the support for his upcoming 'Fires' tour will be his good friend and fellow Irish-Aussie Brian McFadden.
Brian has a new album due for release called THE IRISH CONNECTION which is an apt name for this particular tour too! The album is due for worldwide release on November 2nd 2012 and sees Brian record some of his favourite tracks with some of his favourite artists, including of course his mate Ronan.
As Brian says, we had a deal “I sang on his album, he sings on mine”, Ronan heard the entire album and actually chose to duet on U2’s “All I Want is You”. McFadden feels it was the perfect way to finish off the album. Other tracks on the album include covers of Cranberries, Snow Patrol, Van Morrison, Mary Black and Damian Rice.
The album was recorded both in Sydney and Dublin and has been produced by McFadden and his long time co-producer Robert Conley. McFadden says “I actually enjoyed every moment of making this album – it brought back a life time of memories for me”. “My favourite thing to do is perform”, says Brian and states “I haven’t toured the UK for over 6 years”.
On 16th January 2013 that will be put right as Ronan and Brian take to the road.
