Johnny Logan - Vicar St
Johnny Logan & His Band
Fri 1st & Sat 2nd September
Johnny Logan, or J-Lo as he is known to his legions of hard-core fans, has certainly come a long way since he first began singing in dressing rooms with his dad, the renowned tenor Patrick O’Hagan, when Johnny accompanied him on his tours as a teenager.
Most people know that he is the only singer / songwriter who has managed to win the Eurovision Song Contest three times, as Johnny has done. He won as a singer in 1980 with “What’s Another Year”, as singer, songwriter and composer of “Hold Me Now” in 1987, and in 1992 as songwriter and composer of “Why me”.
What a lot of people don’t know is that Johnny is an incredible live performer who has been a professional musician since the age of fourteen. He possesses one of THE greatest voices ever to come out of Ireland. Unlike many of his contemporaries here in Ireland his Eurovision wins opened the door to Europe for Johnny and he has fashioned a stellar career for himself all over mainland Europe with No 1 albums and sell out shows in Denmark, Germany, Holland, Belgium not forgetting the UK, Asia & Australia. His “Hold Me Now” single sold a staggering 6,000,000 copies worldwide!
In 2016 Johnny decided it was time to come back and show Ireland what it was missing and, along with his musicians, played an absolute blinder of a show at a SOLD OUT Vicar St in Dublin. They came from all over Europe to hear Johnny play a home town show. He decided he had to do it again!
