I had never seen a performance by Celtic Thunder until 2013 in Charlotte, NC. As they say in Ireland, I was "gobsmacked". My husband was raised with and prefers country music and he really enjoyed it. It is difficult to describe the feeling you get sitting in the audience listening to them. Kind of like being transported to Ireland. After the concert, I came home and bought the DVD's "The Show" and "Mythology". As much as I love Mythology, I have to say that the DVD of "The Show" knocked my socks off. Even my husband sat down, on his own, and watched it with me. I just wish Damien was still with them. It is difficult to tell people who have no knowledge of Celtic Thunder just how amazing (and additive) it is. I have to have a weekly fix of the DVD "The Show" and have just ordered their DVD "Unplugged".

THE BEST IN MUSIC!
I have seen their show called, The Best of Celtic Thunder at this theater and it was out
standing. Before that I saw them perform at the Nokia Theater in LA in Dec 2012.. Celtic
Thunder is the only music I listen to besides Celtic Woman. Both of these groups are

You know, they were great with just the 4 guys.
In Fort Lauderdale they were great. An
awesome beginning to ou Christmas Holiday
Doris Koecheler from Fort Lauderdale, Florida
The best!!! My 5yr old granddaughter danced

She’ll never forget this night. I felt like they
were a part of our family!!! So very talented, so
kind. So awesome!!! We had dinner at the
Boatyard A very special night with very special

OUTSTANDING, AS USUAL!
It was disappointing that the new man, Micheal O’'Dyer was not there last night, 11-17-
18, at the Orpheum in LA. We were sorry he was ill, but we missed him and his beautiful
voice so much! Get well, Micheal. But as usual, the remaining 4 guys did an amazing job
of getting on without him. Great singing, great band. It was a great show! Thank you
Kathy Blair from Marion, Ohio
Saw these lads October 7 for the CTX show! A fabulous show
although they were missing Michael O'Dwyer who had to sit this
tour out due to a vocal cord node. Everything about the show was
perfect: The Band, the boys, the songs, even the technicians...they
really know how to put on a wonderful show.
Ruth from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Went to Englewood nj it was amazing. I could
have listened to them all night. It was so
Much better in person I still
Can’t believe I saw them.
Denise Marciniak from Milwaukee, Wisconsin
I was blown away by this amazing
performance. I am now a fan for life! Their
voices and the show were breathtaking!
Helenamarie McCarthy from Boston, Massachusetts
I first saw them perform on UTube and felt
the stage in Lynn was too small. Would have
preferred more Irish songs rather than
Christmas carols. Loved the efficiency of
everything. No time wasted. Would
definitely recommend seeing them. Didn't
like the fact that we could not take a photo.
Ann Marie Lundstrom from Chicago, Illinois
Excellent ! It was the second time for me
seeing Celtic Thunder! They put on a great
from Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Too many great charismatic moments. I wanted to go back the next night!
Showmanship is wonderful. Humor. Definitely should be on your pot of gold bucket list

CELTIC THUNDER FEB 2022 JACKSONVILLE FLA
For my 96th birthday I treated myself to my first Celtic Thunder concert in Jacksonville .It was my greatest experience after my wedding and birth of my child. The music was exciting and thrilling and was such a tribute to their Irish culture. The lads were super entertaining both as a group and individually. The harmonizing was perfect and solos were terrific. I was able to attend the sound check and rehearsal. This was truly an unforgettable experience and well worth the price of admission. The band was so personable in such an intimate setting. Those boys interacted with the audience and you could see their humor and wit. They took questions and then brought people up for group photos. At that time Ryan Kelly signed a sign I had made to tell him I loved him with and a peck. The boys then sang a special Happy Birthday to me. I could not have been more surprised and pleased and I'll take that memory with me to my grave . Overall this was a great concert and I look forward to seeing them again next trip. Lois Watson
Higgins Anne Ryan from Chicago, Illinois
NEW BOY BAND?
Watching Celtic Thunder X. What’s with all the pop songs? Celebrate?
I’m a Believer? I do love “On the Street Where you Live” and Harry
Nilsson’s “ I Can’t Live”. Not Irish songs but I’ll keep loving you guys. I so
miss George and Keith! I know George is irreplaceable 😓. You all look
the same, too! I can’t tell you boys apart now!
R Foster from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
GREAT VOICES OVERSHADOWED BY SHOW
1) Their voices are amazing! 2) They harmonize well. 3) With that said, I have seen
them before in another city & tour; unfortunately for this show, one of the members
had to fly back home for a family emergency and the loss of his voice was noticeable
in a few songs. They did their best and provided a few more solo pieces than they
might have otherwise. As others have said, only a few Celtic songs, a few "favorites,"
and then the 2nd half all Christmas Carols. Not what i was expecting...if I really
wanted to hear American Christmas Carols, I would have gone to a collegiate all-
male choir performance. 4) Tech issues...a) PSO is a world-class orchestra, but they
were way overmic'd in second half and drowned out the singing; really hard to hear
harmonies from the group; and b) light show was not on its A-game...alot of missed
light cues, questionable lighting, inc. having the trombones sit so close to the curtain,
their stand lights washed out the curtain behind them. Maybe another time

CELTIC THUNDER FEB 2022
First timer to the CT concert. Amazed at the true following the band has which reminded me of Grateful Dead tours. That was a long time ago and CT is now with an energized performance. This was an entertaining concert with Irish music only. No Freebird played here! Everyone seemed to enjoy and were encouraged to sing along on many songs. Forget anything you have seen on PBS as this is a live show with smaller production.They enhance the music with videos playing in the background. There is a live 7 plus member band .
Overall the small intimate setting in an older theater added to the experience. There was a festive atmosphere outside the theater as nightlife was going on everywhere. Seemed safe enough for family outing as there was good lighting, a lot of moving traffic and some police presence.

NOT MANY IRISH SONGS
The concert in Milaukee, Wis. was my fourth concert, but this was not my favorite concert. There were not many Irish songs which I love to hear them sings, plus one of the members was not there. My friend and I usually get our tickets through Channel 11 in Chicago and always good seats. Since we decided to go to the Milwaukee concert instead of Chicago (we live in Chicago), my friend purchased tickets online. There was a problem after my friend received the tickets and we were really far away from the stage. For the price that we paid for the tickets, it was not worth it this time.
Jim Stachowski from Minneapolis, Minnesota
A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED
The music was fine with a few standout performances, but It was mostly American songs and Christmas
music. Only three Celtic songs. It is their Irish music that makes this group a favourite of mine. Another five
Celtic hits would have made for a much more satisfying experience. I am sure it gets boring doing the same
songs repeatedly, but that is their signature success story. The symphony sounded great and the State
Theater is a standout venue.

CELTIC THUNDER - RALEIGH, N.C. SHOW
Several years ago, I saw Celtic Thunder perform at DPAC and thought it one of the best
shows that I have ever seen. Last night was a completely different experience and
disappointing. I wanted to see Celtic Thunder for their Celtic music and polished
showmanship - not for the music which comprised a portion of this show. They need to
get back to the music that made them so special.
John Doe from San Antonio, Texas
EXPECTED CELTIC MUSIC
Sang a Monkee’s song, The Devil
went down to Georgia, Seasons in the
Sun, a 50’s song. Small band
positioned too far back from stage.
Sound from violin was not well
A good performance but not a wow
performance that we have been used
to with such performers as Celtic
Women, Gordon Lightfoot, Ten
Tenors, and Willy Nelson

"WHERE'S THE CELTIC?" 12/09/17
My mother who does not like to travel
decided she wanted to see Celtic Thunder in
Minneapolis MN, which was the closest
location to us from Fargo, ND.
8 hours of pto, two gas fill ups and two night
stay was not worth this concert. It should be
titled, "Where's the Celtic?"
My husband and I are being lenient in saying
there were three Celtic songs. Everything
else was American songs and freaking
christmas music. Nowhere and I mean
NOWHERE did it say this was a holiday
special of American songs.
False advertising. Don't recommend seeing
in concert- I'll stick to Pandora where
listening to their Celtic music is free.
Pat from Raleigh, North Carolina
CELTIC THUNDER HAS LOST ITS WAY
saw the show last night — great seats, great venue, great voices, high
energy but oh so very disappointing. The group forgot why they were
famous — they did garage band style covers, Broadway numbers and
very little of what I came to see.
Didn’t even play All Gods Creatures Have a place in the choir — one of
my favourite of theirs.
The fiddle player was outstanding and she stole the show
from Nashville, Tennessee
NOT THE CELTIC THUNDER I KNOW
There were no Irish songs sung. You don't go to a dentist to fix a broken arm, I didn't come to listen to an irish band sing Bruno Mars. The production and overall feel of the show felt very cheap. Very sad to see the decline in this group.
Joe Matthews from Farr West, Utah.
Are you kidding me. It was not a good performance. Did not stick with the songs that
we all know and love. The performance was really bad. It was like going to a Larance
Welk concert. If you like nothing but slow ballads then this was the show for you.
Come on guys. I paid over $1000.00 dollars for tickets and I was so disappointed and
angry. I should have just watched youtube videos. Do go, dot waist you time or
