CELTIC THUNDER - TAKE ME HOME
Hot on the heels of their hit North American tour that dazzled audiences from coast to coast, pop vocal sensation Celtic Thunder has announced that their new CD and DVD, Take Me Home, will be released on Decca Records on July 14. Recently recorded live at Toronto’s Casino Rama, the set features stunning versions of brand new songs for the delight of “Thunderheads” everywhere, who will be able to experience Take Me Home when the program debuts nationwide on public television beginning this month. Check local listings for broadcast dates and times.
Scheduled for broadcast on local public television affiliates in top markets across North America, Take Me Home includes Celtic Thunder’s signature takes on songs including “Every Breath You Take” by The Police, the Josh Groban classic “You Raise Me Up,” Top 5 hit “500 Miles” by The Proclaimers, and many more. As the group’s third album for the Decca/Universal label, Take Me Home follows previous albums Celtic Thunder and Act Two, both of which reached #1 on the Billboard World Music chart.
The new CD and DVD will prepare the group’s legions of fans for an extensive Celtic Thunder - Take Me Home Fall 2009 Tour beginning in the Tilles Center, NY on October 8th, the follow-up to Celtic Thunder’s highly successful 30-date spring trek which just finished May 7th in Vancouver, BC. In their review of Celtic Thunder’s concert at the legendary Beacon Theatre during that tour, The New York Times described the group as “a Fab Five peddling Celtic stylings…steadfast George, sensitive Keith, bruising Paul, caddish Ryan and angelic Damian.”
The group kicked off that same tour with a whirlwind St. Patrick’s Day that found them opening New York City’s famed parade with a stirring performance, televised on NBC, after which they were immediately rushed off on a train to the nation’s capital. Just hours later, they performed at the official White House St. Patrick’s Day Party for President Obama, Irish Taoiseach (or Prime Minister) Brian Cowen, and a host of dignitaries and other distinguished guests.
Celtic Thunder first entered mainstream consciousness with their smash public television debut special in 2008, released on DVD as Celtic Thunder: The Show. They subsequently toured 48 cities across North America last fall to earn the #20 spot on Pollstar’s top tours of 2008. For more information, including tour updates, log on to www.celticthunder.com.
