Rea Garvey at The Academy 2 (review & photos)

Rea GarveyRea Garvey played The Academy 2 last Monday (February 18th).

The Tralee, co. Kerry, native dreamt of becoming a rock-star ever since he was a teen, but he left Ireland in 1998 to sell T-shirts in Germany. He came back as a rock-star. On monday Rea showed us that he’s a true entertainer, a pro that gives it all wether he’s on a stadium or in a small pub. With a band of musicians who were genuinely enjoying every bit of their gig behind him, Rea Garvey offered the Academy 2 audience an excellent performance. The crowd of old friends, family members and true fans was absorbing every song, as well as the stories Rea sprinkled between them.

The show ended with an open invitation from Rea to the audience to stay for a few pints with him and the band.

Support on the Academy gig, as well as for all the other shows in this tour, came from Ryan Sheridan.
