GARRY TALLENT, a long serving member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, is taking time out from those duties to go on a solo tour which will see him head to Ireland, and Galway, next month.
Tallent, the Detroit born musician and producer, plays Monroe's Live on Saturday June 3 at 8pm. He will be performing songs from his debut solo album Break Time. Tallent said of the album: "Everything on this sounds pre-1959. I wear my influences on my sleeve.”
He began playing with Bruce Springsteen in 1971 in two bands and then formed the E Street Band in 1972. Along with The Boss, he is the only original member of the E Street Band. He has appeared on every Bruce album and has never missed a concert. Tallent was inducted as a member of the E Street Band into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Support is from Keith Montgomery. Tickets are €20/18via www.monroes.ie
