Celtic Thunder Heads to the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall
Celtic Thunder storms onto the mainstage with their latest live show, IRELAND. The international sensation will play at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall on Sunday, December 20 at 7:30 p.m. IRELAND is a brand-new revue show that revisits their most popular Irish and Celtic songs of the past decade and celebrates the influence of Irish and Celtic music around the world. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 3 at 10 a.m.
"We, like everyone else the world over, are concerned about the health of our families and community and wish for our fans to remain safe and protected in these troubling times. The prospect of our future tour is something positive that we carry with us now, and we very much look forward to welcoming our fans to a Celtic Thunder show again soon" says Celtic Thunder soloist Ryan Kelly.
The Celtic Thunder IRELAND live theatrical show embodies the essence of the public television stars, delivering a blend of lively, fast paced and upbeat songs "A Place in The Choir," "The Galway Girl" and "Raggle Taggle Gypsy," classic ballads "Mountains of Mourne" and "The Wild Rover" and renowned Irish love songs such as "She Moved Through The Fair" and "Danny Boy" - all with a special Celtic Thunder twist, of course.
Drawing from their most popular public television specials (as seen on WEDU) and hits since their inception, IRELAND features the songs and performances that launched Celtic Thunder into the hearts and homes of audiences across the US and Canada, winning them the mantle of Top World Music Act in Billboard five times over. The production has something for everyone and is perfect for the whole family.
Formed in Dublin in 2007, Celtic Thunder is a multi-dimensional musical and theatrical ensemble celebrated around the world for emotionally powerful performances and a state-of-the-art production. Billboard Magazine has named Celtic Thunder the Top World Album Artist (in 2008, 2009, 2011, 2015 and 2016) while the group has had LPs placed in the World Album Top 10 every year since 2008.
