Tickets for international singing sensation Celtic Thunder's upcoming North American Symphony Tour are on sale now. The show's 8th US tour kicks off at the Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, FL on November 14th, following the 2nd annual Celtic Thunder Cruise (sailing on November 8th -12th 2104). The Symphony Tour will introduce the show's newest member Emmett O'Hanlon, an Irish American baritone who will be joining the show in the US this fall. Emmett O'Hanlon was born and raised in New York to Irish parents and is currently finishing his Master Degree in Voice at Julliard School of Music.
The tour will remain on the road through December 10th, touring the East Coast and Mid West in the US, playing major venues such as the Symphony Hall in Atlanta (11/21), The Chicago Theatre, Chicago (11/30), MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods (12/5), Heinz Center for the Performing Arts, Pittsburgh (12/9), The State Theater in Minneapolis (11/28), NYCB Theatre at Westbury (12/7), Morristown PAC (12/6).
This will be the first ever Symphony Tour for Celtic Thunder, who will depart from their traditional and critically-acclaimed large set productions to perform songs from their 2013 chart-topping album Christmas Voices in a dynamic live music experience accentuated by the instrumentals of a full symphony orchestra. Featuring holiday favorites ranging from traditional carols Away in A Manger, and O Holy Night to the more contemporary Mary's Boy Child and Fairytale of New York, Celtic Thunder's five male soloists Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, Neil Byrne, Colm Keegan and Emmett O'Hanlon will also perform solo and ensemble numbers, signature Celtic Thunder hit songs Ireland's Call and Turning Away and traditional Irish numbers such as Dulamanand My Land.
The Celtic Thunder Symphony Tour will be the show's 8th tour of the USA since it was launched in 2008. The airing of their first Public Television special came that same year and Celtic Thunder has consistently remained one of the most popular musical shows for stations throughout the US. Tickets for the Celtic Thunder Symphony Tour will be available through Public Television during its March Pledge Season, check http://www.celticthunder.com/tour for tour details and Public TV listings. A spring 2015 USA and Canada Tour is also in the works and will be announced shortly.
