Their performance repertoire includes Irish classics such as "WHEN IRISH EYES ARE SMILING," "SHE MOVED THROUGH THE FAIR," "ROSE OF TRALEE," "BOOLAVOGUE," "ISLE OF INISFREE," as well as popular hits, such as "GRACE," GOD BLESS AMERICA," "SHENANDOAH," and "GLOCCA MORRA."

"We are looking forward to returning to Louisville and celebrating St. Patrick's Day with all our friends on the day when everyone is Irish," said Anthony Kearns on behalf of the trio.

Known for its rich history, architectural beauty and remarkable stage, The Louisville Memorial Auditorium is a designated landmark by the Louisville Landmarks Commission and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Flanked by stately Greek columns, the building was designed by internationally renowned architect, Thomas Hastings, who was assisted by Louisville architect E.T. Hutchings. It was dedicated on Memorial Day, May 30, 1929. In addition to its architectural magnificence and unique patriotic history, the auditorium is home to 144 world-famous flags. These historic flags from World War I and II are proudly displayed in six beautifully lit flag cases.

"The Louisville Memorial Auditorium is proud to host a day to be remembered, as the acknowledged Kings of Celtic music perform in our unique, historic and storied venue," said Kelly Gream, LMA Executive Director.

Called the darlings of PBS, THE IRISH TENORS made their first television debut on PBS in the United States in 1999 with "The Irish Tenors in Dublin," followed by a second television special, "Irish Tenors in Belfast," in 2000.

In 2001, they performed their first televised concert on U.S. soil, in the magnificent setting of Ellis Island (NY), where they captured the American spirit with "Isle of Hope, Isle of Tears" and resounding choruses of "God Bless America" and other patriotic hits.

THE IRISH TENORS have toured continually since their world debut, performing in historic and celebrated venues from Carnegie Hall to Madison Square Gardens and the Hollywood Bowl. Their anniversary concert tour in Ireland last year was sold-out.

Booking fees from the March 18th concert will help restore the Louisville Memorial Auditorium. Tickets and booking fees are non-refundable.

Broadway Beyond Louisville Review: INTO THE WOODS at Tennessee Performing Arts Center

What did our critic think of INTO THE WOODS at Tennessee Performing Arts Center? The star-studded cast is led by Tony Award winner Stephanie J. Block and Sebastian Arcelus as The Baker’s Wife and the Baker respectively. They’re a real-life couple, so their chemistry is justly wonderful, but I cannot express how amazing their individual performances are as well.

Broadway Beyond Louisville Review: Broadway in Cincinnati presents MOULIN ROUGE! at the Aronoff Center

In 2001, Baz Luhrumann's film welcomed the world to the Moulin Rouge. The film is credited as part of the resurgence of movie musicals in the early 2000s, and continues to be an audience favorite. After whispers of a stage adaptation for years and years, the dream became a reality in 2018 with an out-of-town tryout in Boston.  Moulin Rouge finally opened on Broadway in the Summer of 2019, as an instant hit. That Broadway season was cut short in March of 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but when the season resumed in the Fall of 2021, it was nominated for 14 Tony Awards (winning 10, including best musical). The show finally embarked on its highly anticipated national tour in 2022.
