The Commitments are back.

After nearly 20 years the cast of The Commitments are getting back together to pay tribute to the iconic film. The Band will play 4 gigs around Ireland to celebrate the 20th anniversary in March 2011.

This film was a great relief to Irish people who were in the middle of the last recession and its amazing 20 years later they are reforming when another recession has hit Ireland.

The film is based around Manager Jimmy Rabbitte who was on a mission to have the best band in the world. This film was nominated for an Oscar and Golden Globe and won a BAFTA award and also was named best Irish film of all time.
