The Corrs - Unplugged [Full acoustic concert]

Was on YouTube the other day and came across a video of The Corrs in concert recorded in 1999.

Malaysians had the chance to see The Corrs live when they performed at the Opening of the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur. Before then, the music of The Corrs was already familiar to Malaysians having heard them over the airwaves on radio and watching MTV videos of them on television.

Back then in 1998, Talk on Corners, their most successful album to date, reached multi-platinum status in Australia, and in the UK was the highest selling album of 1998.

The Corrs are an Irish band which combine pop rock with traditional Celtic folk music. The brother and sisters are from Dundalk, Ireland and they do make beautiful music.

They have released five studio albums and numerous singles, which have reached platinum in many countries.

They have been actively involved in philanthropic activities and have performed in numerous charity concerts such as the Prince's Trust in 2004 and Live 8 alongside Bono in 2005. The same year, they were awarded honorary MBEs for their contributions to music and charity.

The Corrs are on hiatus because Jim and Caroline are raising families, while Andrea and Sharon are pursuing solo careers. Sharon doesn't know if The Corrs will get back together.

Here's their Unplugged full acoustic concert recorded in 1999. If you are a fan of the music of The Corrs, then this one is for you. Just like listening to an album, only better, this 1-hour 12-minute concert filmed on location at Ardmore Studios in Ireland is a must-watch. Sing along if you wish as lyrics are provided.
