Multiple Emmy® Award-winning Irish pop tenor Eamonn McCrystal and Chloë Agnew (formerly of Celtic Woman) are joining forces for a North American tour of the US this December. The 15-city "coast-to-coast" tour will kick off on December 3 in Los Angeles, CA at the Grammy Museum at LA Live and crisscross the United States including stops in Santa Fe, Oklahoma City, Nashville, Charlotte, Washington DC and New York City. Watch preview of tour here.
Backed by a six-piece band, the internationally renowned powerhouses will team up to perform classic hits from Ireland, holiday favorites and new, unreleased music for their fans. "I am so excited that we can bring this very special concert to 15 cities across the US this December with Chloë Agnew" says McCrystal. "She was always my favorite Celtic Woman from the very start and I am beyond excited to work with her on this tour that will feature new music, many holiday classics and of course the hits that you know us for - especially from the PBS special 'The Music of Northern Ireland.' It's a rare thing for two artists like us (who are constantly traveling across the Atlantic) to get schedules to align - so it's a concert you don't want to miss!"
2015 was a phenomenal year for McCrystal as he impressively won four Emmy® Awards for the highly touted PBS Special 'The Music Of Northern Ireland.' On November 4th 2016 he will release his tenth studio album "And So It Goes" which features the very poignant single "Pray For Peace" featuring Hollywood royalty Rita Wilson and McCrystal's December tour partner, Agnew. See video here. Looking ahead Eamonn will guest star in an episode of the new sitcom "Hitting The Breaks" which also features Rob Schneider and Burt Reynolds. Following his December tour, he will finish out the year filming a starring role for a feature-length Christmas movie, "Santa Fake" due for release in 2017.
McCrystal has collaborated with an array of artists such as David Foster, Kristin Chenoweth, Nigel Wright (Andrew Lloyd Webber), Randy Travis, Dianne Warren, Guy Roche and Walter Afanasieff
In film, Eamonn McCrystal has appeared alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Patrick Wilson and Ashley Judd in the Adriana Trigiani film "Big Stone Gap" and most recently seen in "God's Not Dead 2" alongside Melissa Joan Hart, Jesse Metcalfe and Ray Wise as an attorney for the ACLU.
