The Kellys on their way
Jimmy Kelly (51);
Joey Kelly: “It took almost half a year until the bus was painted and got the MOT. Then the journey began.”
John Kelly (55): “There are also tensions. We were together, that was my life. Today I am happy that I have a life of my own. But I appreciate both. “
Kathy Kelly (59): “The most emotional moment of the trip was at our mother Barbara’s grave, when we sang the songs we sang when she was buried.”
Patricia Kelly (52): “We were in Paris on the Metro, where we had a vision of one day filling a stadium. Years later it became a reality.”
Paul Kelly (58): “Good and bad things happened where I slept on the bus. When I got the bus from London that day, it was winter and very cold.
From November 2022, the Kelly family will embark on a massive concert tour and release a new studio album.
