Thousands turned out to enjoy the ‘The best Eagles tribute band in the world’ and Louis Walsh’s latest boy band during the recent free RailFest concert in Dungannon.
‘Ultimate Eagles’ who have performed to over 200,000 fans worldwide, clocking up 4 million YouTube hits along the way, have performed alongside the likes of Queen, Joe Cocker, Paul Young, Roger Daltrey, Lulu, Bonnie Tyler and Tom Jones.
The rock group was supported by ‘HomeTown’ the most recent act to be created by former X Factor judge, Louis Walsh.
HomeTown's first single ‘Where I Belong’ went straight to number one in Ireland, becoming the fastest selling single from a debut act and the fastest selling single from an Irish artist in 2014.
The event was organised by Mid Ulster District Council, as part of a series of celebrations to mark the end of a £7M investment project being funded under the European Peace III Shared Spaces Programme, which is delivering a new 6.9km path linking key recreational spaces in the town, including Railway Park.
The Park will also be home to a new community centre currently under construction, while the Hill of the O’Neill is benefiting from a new viewing tower and event space which will hold up to 300 people.
