The Commitments are getting the band back together for a 20th anniversary tour to celebrate the film. Announced this morning in Liberty Hall, the tour will take in four dates in Dublin, Kerry, Mayo and Belfast.
The re-assembled cast including Andrew Strong, Robert Arkins (Jimmy Rabbite), Bronagh Gallagher, Angeline Ball, Glen Hansard and the rest with the exception of Maria Doyle Kennedy who is filming in LA, performed ‘Treat Her Right’ and ‘Mustang Sally’ and there are no further plans to record or tour beyond these dates.
