Mandela Live is pleased to announce that Bell X1 return to Belfast for a special show at The Elmwood Hall on Friday 1st of February. The band will be joined by Dowry Strings (Éna Brennan) who will provide string accompaniment. These concerts mark the end of a year of celebrations which saw the band perform five sell-out concerts at Vicar Street in Dublin earlier this year.
The concert at Elmwood Hall, will feature a selection of songs from Bell X1’s catalogue. Known for their musical versatility and experimentation, Bell X1’s seven albums have incorporated alternative, indie, hard rock, post-punk, acoustic, lo-fi, folk-rock, ballad, pop, synth-pop, new wave and electronica.
“The Bandiversary shows this year have been a real trip, and have re-kindled our love for songs we haven’t properly
gotten inside in a long time. And we worked with Éna on a show with strings for the charity Aware earlier in the year,
and thought how great it would be to go deeper into the catalogue with the three of us and a quartet” says Paul.
Since the release of their acclaimed 7th studio album Arms, the group have spent time touring in America, Australia & Europe.
They’ve also released new material with their various side projects. Paul has been working on his first solo LP with Producer Thomas Bartlett, and Dave has been touring and releasing new material with Join Me In the Pines.
Bell X1 are Paul Noonan, Dave Geraghty & Dominic Philips.
