There’s no resting on your laurels for Public Television phenomenon Celtic Thunder! The multi-platinum Irish group have recently released an all new CELTIC THUNDER X Deluxe Double CD, Deluxe Double DVD packages. The releases celebrate the group’s 10th Anniversary, and the Celtic Thunder X tour of 75 cities across the US and Canada will begin in the fall of 2018 with a stop in Moose Jaw October 27th.
Backed by the amazing Celtic Thunder Band, the singers (Damian McGinty, Ryan Kelly, Michael O’Dwyer, Emmet Cahill & Neil Byrne) deliver new ensemble numbers including “Sons of Light”, “Toora, Loora, Lay”, “The Wild Rover”, “Right all right”, and “Castle on the Hill” followed in the second act by nostalgic fun songs like “Celebration”, “I’m a Believer”, “Seasons in the Sun” and “Rise Again”. No Celtic Thunder show would be complete without an encore of their rousing anthem “Ireland’s Call”, the only song in CELTIC THUNDER X that isn’t a new song but which never fails to bring the audience to its feet.
"We had a blast making CELTIC THUNDER X. The music choices were carefully selected to suit each member’s personality and gave us something we could really dig our teeth into. The musical arrangements, the orchestra and the band are all great, and they really helped to create our best show to date. We love singing songs that are a perfect mix of traditional and contemporary Irish Songs, along with the fun we have performing hit songs that are known worldwide." Damian, Michael, Emmet, Ryan & Neil, Celtic Thunder
