Glen Hansard (Outspan Foster) said: “When I heard about the possibility of The Commitments reforming for a few shows it felt very welcoming, a perspective I wasn’t sure I’d feel. Andrew’s voice is on fire and the girls sound better than ever. It’s a real joy to stand behind him and the girls and watch them make us all look good. I’m just happy to be the guitar player again. We’re all older and hopefully wiser now and I look forward to getting down to work and catching up with everyone.”
