Multi-platinum selling singer, saxophonist, producer and songwriter Curtis Stigers has announced an Irish tour this November with shows in Dublin, Belfast, Meath and Galway in support of his latest album This Life.
Kicking off his tour in Dublin’s Liberty Hall on November 17, Stigers is set to play Belfast’s Waterfront Studio on November 18, Navan’s Solstice Theatre on November 19 and Galway’s Black Box Theatre on November 20.
“We created most of these arrangements onstage, during soundchecks and concerts,” the singer-songwriter said about his latest album, which was released in February and revisits some of his greatest hits. “My songs have changed and grown as they’ve gotten older, just like I have,” he added.

This Life is a celebration of three decades of musical exploration, evolution and growth. It has been described as a look back at 13 pop and jazz albums, thousands of concert performances and millions of miles on the road.
Stigers first entered the recording scene in 1991 with his eponymous debut album, which sold 1.5 million copies. It features the worldwide top-ten hit "I Wonder Why", as well as other self-penned, pop/soul-flavoured singles including "You’re All That Matters To Me" and "Never Saw A Miracle".
At 25 years old, the NYC-based musician, who has since confounded those trying to categorise his music or put him in a box, toured the world with his first album as a supporting act for the likes of Elton John, Prince, Eric Clapton, James Brown, Joe Cocker, Rod Stewart and Bonnie Raitt.
Over his career spanning thirty years, Curtis Stigers has written songs with the iconic Carole King, toured with symphony orchestras, duetted with Al Green, Shawn Colvin and Tom Jones and written and performed the Emmy-nominated theme song for the action crime drama television series Sons Of Anarchy. He has also appeared in two Seth MacFarlane movies about the foul-mouthed teddy bear Ted and on American talkshows including The Tonight Show, David Letterman, Arsenio and The Today Show.
Stigers, who grew up in Idaho, notes that he has drawn his musical inspiration from artists as diverse as Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Frank Sinatra, Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, The Band, Elvis Costello, The Stranglers, Pretenders, Squeeze, XTC, Ray Charles, Joe Williams, Tom Waits, Led Zeppelin, Sarah Vaughn and Miles Davis.
