Brendan said ‘I’m looking forward to coming to St Helens as part of my UK and Ireland tour. I haven’t been before but I’ve heard great things about the town and the region. It’ll be grand to see all of my fans and to perform for them. When you come to a Brendan Shine Show, you become part of the Shine party, an experience I hope that you’ll enjoy and that you won’t forget’
