Listening Party

Enjoy this exclusive Listening Party of Celtic Thunder's new CD "It's Entertainment." The Listening Party enables you to preview all the songs and share this great music with your friends.

"Celtic Thunder: It's Entertainment!" is the group's most ambitious project to date. Filmed in front of a live studio audience in Toronto, Celtic Thunder has delivered a spectacular show that will enchant and amaze their PBS fans.

Staged on a "set" that measures 130 foot long by 47 foot wide, there is nothing small about this production. A grand piano sits on a bandstand, twinkling lights overlook a luscious green lawn with a white marble fountain and romantic park bench, and men in tuxedos, top hats and tails all reflect the romance and nostalgia of times gone by.

  • Friday, November 5, 2010

Full Event Information

"It's Entertainment!" is a musical review that spans six decades and will delight and enthrall audiences, whether through a nostalgic reminiscence of old classics such as "Standing on the Corner" or the band's unique take on contemporary numbers such as Michael Buble's "Home" or U2's hit "Still Haven't Found What I am Looking For."

The lead members of Celtic Thunder have brought their talents to a whole new level with the support of their amazing band, and the introduction of 9 sensational dancers featured throughout the show. The audience can watch Damian standing on the corner as he shyly serenades his first love, or Paul strutting down the lane with top hat and cane as they've never seen him before. They can marvel as "bad bad" boy Ryan finds his dancing groove as Leroy Brown in a wonderful troupe performance, or grin as Keith pays homage to his surfer roots in a colorful medley that celebrates his youthful and exuberant charm - and his talent on the guitar. While George, as always, calm and steady, brings it all back home.
