November,. 6. 2017. – Chris Rea live in Budapest!

Chris Rea live in Budapest  after a five-year break on November, 6. 2017 at the  Papp László Budapest Arena.

Chris Rea  boosts off with “Road Songs for Lovers” European Tour 2017.

Chris Rea will be returning to Europe after the Summer of 2017 following his very first US and Australian concerts. Chris Rea will play a full European and UK tour in October, November and December, to celebrate the release of his new album, “Road Songs for Lovers”.The album will be released in September, within the European tour starting off October, 7.  in the Netherlands. .

Like all truly great artists, Chris Rea has followed his own unique artistic vision and a path that is his and his alone. And although his exemplary musical output to date is deeply embedded into the framework of the world’s rock n roll DNA, it is also safe to say that his presence has been something of a glittering thorn in the side of an industry that has always had him down as a perennial outsider. Artist and painter, blues aficionado and self-confessed motoring nut, filmmaker and Italian-influenced classical music composer, eclectic and maverick are two terms that hardly come close to describing a man who has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide for just being himself. In 2017 Rea returns to what he’s best known for: an album of gorgeous rock ballads which showcases Rea’s unique voice and a songwriting skill at the top of his game.

The Budapest show will be held in the theatrical layout, fans should make sure they have their tickets soon this time not to miss the concert as the  previous one. 

There will be only seated tickets available via and/or on the spot.

Time Travel to Gyula – Reconstructed Franciscan Ruin.

It is expected that the Franciscan ruin of Gyula will be handed over  under with the Roman Catholic Mass, after consultation with the Church, is expected in October.

Last year, Mayor Ernő Görgényi initiated the possibility that in the 2017 budget, the city should provide this source of money.

The historical site is definitely  to be a more promising tourist destination than ever before.

The Franciscan monks established in 1410 by the pope in the estate of Gyula, once 35 meters in length and 10 meters wide.  The Franciscan Garden – Church and Monastery in 1905, was requested by János Maróti major of Macsó the permission from the pope to set up the Franciscan monastery. Most of the population lived in this area until 1566., when most fled from the attacks of the Turks.

According to historians and archaeologists at the first half of the 20th century in the Franciscan Garden  at the Epreskert Street, two Hungarian ladies were buried in the 16th century, Erzsébet Corvin and Beatrix Frangepán. Both remnants were discovered in the 1930s. The shrine and the built-in cells were reconstructed in the 1960s and some of them are still visible today.

There is no doubt that very few people know at Gyula and its surroundings that the Gyula Franciscan monastery and the church were extremely unique and great at the time. In terms of its function, it also played a prominent role since three provincial meetings were held here. During the Reformation, it was important for the Catholics to have the region, a dominant and strong Catholic institution.
