Celtic Thunder has announced dates for their upcoming 62-city North American tour, which will bring them back to downtown Chicago for a performance at The Chicago Theatre on Friday, October 18.
Named Top World Music Artist twice by industry bible Billboard Magazine, Celtic Thunder’s six male soloists Emmet Cahill, Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, George Donaldson, Neil Byrne and Colm Keegan perform both solo and ensemble numbers. They are known for performing an eclectic mix of songs, ranging from traditional Irish fare to international hits such as “The Boys Are Back In Town” and “The Sound of Silence” as well as original compositions by the musical director and composers, including “Voices” and Hunter’s Moon”.
Their live shows are recognized for the use of dramatic effects via lighting and choreography, as well as a stage set resembling an ancient stone pathway drawn from Celtic lore. Mythology presents the perfect blend of entertainment, ideology and Gaelic spirituality, providing a modern twist on the old Celtic storytelling tradition. In addition to the six main vocalists, the tour will also feature strings, guitars, percussion, whistles, pipes and more in the eight-piece Celtic Thunder band.
