Dublin’s Saviours Of Soul
Following a worldwide media tour in 1991 to promote the global success of the Alan Parker film of Roddy Doyle's acclaimed novel, the band went their separate ways. During the promotion, there were so many requests for the band to tour, that by 1993, The Commitments had been reborn as a real, working band, playing their special “Dublin Soul”. They have toured the world ever since & on many special occasions, their co-stars from the movie including Michael Aherne, Robert Arkins & Johnny Murphy perform with the band.
“World’s Hardest Working Band”
The Commitments play to sold-out audiences worldwide & in 2004 have performed in front of hundreds of thousands of fans at major outdoor festivals & concert venues throughout the UK & Europe. The eagerly awaited return to America in September proved hugely popular. The band will also be working with Twentieth Century Fox to promote the new DVD of The Commitments movie. Digitally re-mastered & presented in anamorphic widescreen with 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound, The Commitments Collector’s Edition DVD is jammed with never-before-available bonus features including commentary from Director Alan Parker, making of featurettes, “The Commitments: Looking Back” retrospective, two new songs, music videos, & more.
