As a result of disruptions to flights caused by the Icelandic volcano eruption, Liam Reilly and Bagatelle have been forced to cancel their U.S. Tour which was due to start this week. The tour has now been rescheduled for July.

Bagatelle became an Irish household name in the 80s with hits including the iconic “Summer in Dublin.” The band’s singer/songwriter, Liam Reilly, has also penned emigration themed songs like “Streets of New York,” “Flight of Earls,” and  “Boston Rose.”

Reilly and Bagatelle were honored last year at a function in New York when members of the NYPD made a special presentation to mark their official adoption of the song, “Streets of New York.”
