Celtic Thunder’s Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, Emmet Cahill and Neil Byrne will be alongside special guest Damian McGinty, and all five will perform popular solo and ensemble numbers.
“I am really looking forward to my first Australian tour and my first visit Downunder. The boys keep telling me how beautiful it is and how warm and embracing the fans are,” said special guest Damian, an original member of Celtic Thunder who landed a recurring role (as “Rory Flanagan”) in the worldwide hit series Glee.
Since its inception, Celtic Thunder has thrilled audiences from all over the world with their signature vocal harmonies and ensemble productions
Backed by the amazing eight-piece Celtic Thunder Band on strings, guitars, percussion, whistles, pipes and more, their Legacy tour will feature an array of Celtic Thunder's most popular songs to date.
Classic favourites such as Emmet’s Danny Boy, Damian’s Buachaill on Eirne, Neil’s Noreen, Ryan’s Ride On, Keith’s The Mountains of Mourne, as well as contemporary classics Falling Slowly and Now We Are Free are guaranteed to have the audiences begging for more.
