You will not want to miss the chance to see the world-renowned Irish super-group Celtic Thunder in their live performance of MYTHOLOGY at the Chicago Theatre, 175 N. State, on Friday, Oct. 18 at 7:30pm, as part of their Fall 2013 62-city Canada and USA Tour. Amazingly, the 7th Celtic Thunder CD that was released February 19th of this year debuted at #1 on Billboard's World Music Chart and is the group’s 8th release to hit the #1 spot. Both CD and DVD continue to dominate the charts weeks after release. All six male soloists—twice named Billboard’s Top World Music Artist—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 including “Voices” and “Hunter’s Moon.” In addition to the six main vocalists, the tour will feature strings, guitars, percussion, whistles, pipes and more in the eight-piece Celtic Thunder band. The tour’s musical director is David Munro, who also plays keyboards in the show.
Created by Celtic Thunder Producer Sharon Browne, MYTHOLOGY bears all the hallmarks of a Celtic Thunder live show; An impressive and imposing stage resembling an ancient stone pathway drawn from Celtic lore and dramatic effects via lighting and choreography. Celtic Thunder’s signature brand of emotive and dramatic storytelling through traditional and contemporary music is found throughout the show. MYTHOLOGY presents the audience with the perfect blend of entertainment, ideology and Gaelic spirituality, providing a modern twist on Celtic folklore.
It was impressive to note on their website that in addition to touring around the world it is possible to take a cruise with the Celtic Thunder. The website also has extensive information on the four charities the group supports.
