Disco legends Sister Sledge join
The Stunning as the latest artists
for Bulmers Live at Leopardstown 2017
In the history of music, there have been only a handful of musical groups which have managed to transcend time, genre, and culture . . . and Sister Sledge is indisputably one of them. The sisters, Debbie, Joni, and Kim have created some of the most defining tracks of the disco era, with ‘Lost in Music’ (co-written and produced by Nile Rogers) and ‘We Are Family’ spanning decades of playlists; dazzling audiences with a heady mix of jazz, soul, gospel, disco, and R&B. It’s with huge anticipation that Bulmers Live at Leopardstown welcomes them to Dublin this summer on Thursday, August 10.
The Stunning meanwhile have set the bar high for Irish music with a string of hit singles including ‘Half Past Two’, ‘Romeo’s on Fire’ and the legendary ‘Brewing Up a Storm’. Not resting on their laurels, Steve and Joe Wall have also had huge success with a second outfit, The Walls and remain after nearly three decades of playing together, two of the most charismatic musicians on the Irish music scene, continuing to put out fresh new music today. The Stunning play Bulmers Live at Leopardstown on Thursday, July 27.
These great additions to this summer’s line up join Something Happens (June 8), Hot House Flowers (July 13) and The Riptide Movement (July 20), with a further three shows still to be revealed.
Building of the success of previous Live at Leopardstown events, the summer of 2017 promises to be another season of top class horse racing, superb live music, festival food and fun at Leopardstown Racecourse. Taking place over eight Thursday evenings during June, July and August in 2017, the live performances will be preceded by a top class card of horse racing and a wide selection of hospitality options available for everyone from the great value ‘Summer Bundle’ to the premium ‘Summer Party’.
