DANIEL O'DONNELL: BACK HOME AGAIN TOUR Stops at the Palace Theatre
One of Ireland's best loved artists, Daniel O'Donnell is the first recording artist in the history of the UK Artist Album Chart to have charted at least one new album every year since 1988, an unprecedented and unbroken 29-year span. Known for his charismatic and engaging stage presence, O'Donnell has published more than 50 albums of his signature mix of country and Irish folk, amassing 30 "Top 30" albums over the course of his career.
CAPA presents Daniel O'Donnell: Back Home Again Tour at the Palace Theatre (34 W. Broad St.) on Tuesday, May 30, at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $38-$88 at the CAPA Ticket Center (39 E. State St.), all Ticketmaster outlets, and www.ticketmaster.com. To purchase tickets by phone, please call (614) 469-0939 or (800) 745-3000.
O'Donnell burst into superstardom in the US in 2002 with his first ever PBS special, "The Daniel O'Donnell Show." Since then, O'Donnell has recorded 12 additional PBS specials with "Stand Beside Me" (2013) being the most recent. "Stand Beside Me" is a concert celebration of Irish, country, gospel, rock, movie, and long-time O'Donnell favorites. The title of the special is not only a popular song among concert-goers, but also reflects O'Donnell's belief that fans throughout his more than 10 years on PBS have brought him to where he is today, standing beside him making his career a success and he will be forever grateful to them.
The Irish singer made record-breaking chart history by becoming the first recording artist in the history of the UK Artist Album Chart to have charted at least one new album every year since 1988, an unprecedented and unbroken 29-year span, surpassing everyone from Michael Jackson, the Rolling Stones, Madonna, and U2. Additionally, O'Donnell makes regular appearances in the Billboard World Music Chart.
In total, O'Donnell has placed more than 35 albums on the UK Artist Albums Chart, and 30 "Top 30" albums over the course of his career.
Over his long and continuingly successful career, O'Donnell has received many accolades including an honorary MBE from Queen Elizabeth, an appearance on "Top of the Pops," his life celebrated on "This Is Your Life," and multiple Entertainer of the Year/Person of the Year Awards in Ireland and the UK to add to his record-breaking chart appearances.
