Great Charlie Landsborough for Drogheda

February 3 will be a very special night in the TLT - it marks part of the last tour of UK Country Music legend Charlie Landsborough, who plans to retire from touring to concentrate on writing and recording music. Before his retirement Charlie will be embarking on an extended tour of Ireland.

Known as the UK's premier country music singer, country music is only one part of his live shows. Charlie's gigs are a night of beautiful ballads, folk, blues, country, rock 'n' roll, pop, gospel and anthems.

"I will certainly miss you all but will never forget your great kindness and support and will always treasure the wonderful memories I have of the lovely times I have had with you,' Charlie states.
