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!

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

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.

Great music and musicians. First night on US tour. Need to loosen up and have fun. Too many long, slow ballads. Music-10. Entertainment-6

Singing was TOP NOTCH! Harmonies were beautiful. Missed a star for these reasons: favorite songs missed - Place in the Choir, Song for the Mira, Hallelujah, and Irish Blessing; Where was the bagpipes and drummer; Where was the orchestra; It was like we saw the Celtic Thunder Lite. The music selection was a bit on the slow, depressing ballad side; but the beautiful voices and the harmonies were excellent. The piano and David Munroe was excellent. The keyboardist did a great job filling in for the missing orchestra. The musicians on the stage did a great job. Just really missed the full orchestra effect.

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.

3.0 star rating Jim Stachowski from Minneapolis, Minnesota


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.
