Over the past twelve months, Australians have been quietly discovering what American audiences already know, that Celtic Thunder is a phenomenal international hit. With their DVD and CD 'The Show'having just gone twice Platinum in Australia and their DVD 'The Show' still in the Top 30 ARIA charts after a staggering 33 weeks, Celtic Thunder - Emmet Cahill, Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, George Donaldson and Neil Byrne - are set to tour Australia for the very first time in February 2012.
Celtic Thunder formed in 2008 and comprises of five diverse performers who are each a powerhouse in both their solo and ensemble songs. The group is backed by the dynamic Celtic Thunder Band and their shows are known for the use of dramatic effects of lighting and choreography as well as a stage set resembling an ancient stone pathway suggestive of those referenced in Celtic lore. They've now toured the US and Canada, coast to coast, four times with over 200 concert dates and 400,000 concert tickets sold, while their albums have sold well in excess of one million units. They are commencing their fifth tour of the US this September.
"We are blown away by the reaction to Celtic Thunder in Australia. We had such a great welcome when we were out there in March for promo so we can't wait to get back, and bring The Show out on the road and meet our Aussie fans!" saidCeltic Thunder's Keith Harkin.
