Cincinnati's 'Last Call' for Black 47

Black 47's tour in support of their final album 'Last Call' brings them to The Irish Heritage Center of Greater Cincinnati on October 9, 2014

In September, 2013 the seminal and beloved Irish rock band, Black 47, announced that they are calling it quits after 25 years of recording and performing.

In a statement about the band's breakup, lead singer Larry Kirwan wrote, "We just have a simple wish to finish up at the top our game after 25 years of relentless touring and, as always, on our own terms... Our goal now is to play another full year plus and dedicate all of those gigs to you who've supported us through thick and thin... We would like to say goodbye to you all personally and will make every effort to come play in your city, town, college, pub, club, performing arts center..."

This focused farewell tour will bring Black 47 to the Irish Heritage Center of Greater Cincinnati on Thursday October 9. "We are extremely fortunate to be included in their farewell tour," says Margaret McGurk, a supporter of the IHC.
