Yusuf in Dublin
Last night at the o2 arena in Dublin, Yusuf gave his first ever performance in Ireland. The show marked the start of the Guess I’ll Take My Time tour, his first series of shows in over three decades.
Beginning the concert alone on acoustic guitar, Yusuf was joined over the course of the first act by his band, before breaking for the pre-advertised musical preview of Moonshadow. Following the preview, Yusuf returned to the stage to perform more of his songs both old and new. An incredible finale saw Ronan Keating surprise the crowd with a guest appearance, joining Yusuf for Father and Son – his first live performance since the death of his friend and fellow Boyzone member, Stephen Gately.
The show has received positive reviews from critics and concert goers, both for Yusuf’s own performance and the musical preview of Moonshadow.
