At one point since the release in 1998, David Gray’s White Ladder was purported to have physically existed on CD in almost every household in Ireland, such was its popularity.
One of the most-selling albums in Irish history, the album launched Gray’s career into the next level with songs like ‘Babylon’ , ‘Please Forgive Me’ and ‘This Year’s Love’.
Since then, Gray has followed his muse recording and playing music of more textured forms. Now, over 20 years on from 1998, Gray is cashing in on the popularity of the album with a European and UK tour performing White Ladder in its entirety.
