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".

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 tops.

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 Celtic Thunder!!

5.0 star rating 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.

5.0 star rating 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!

5.0 star rating 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.

5.0 star rating Ann Marie Lundstrom from Chicago, Illinois


Excellent ! It was the second time for me seeing Celtic Thunder! They put on a great show

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

5.0 star rating Lois Watson from Yulee, 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

I’ve been going to see Celtic Thunder for 10 years and I can’t say enough about them because they are so exciting , funny, you just can’t take your eyes off of them . Great singers and I only wish I could see odyssey. I’ve seen a place in the choir,Galway Girl,Ireland’s call,Hallelujah,a bird without wings,Amazing Grace . It’s hard to go see them since I live in Connecticut and most of their concerts are over 2 hours away:

5.0 star rating Patti Scalise from Oakdale Theatre in Connecticut


I’ve seen Celtic Thunder about 6 times because I can never get enough of their wonderful singer ,

4.0 star rating Higgins Anne Ryan from Chicago, Illinois


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!

4.0 star rating R Foster from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


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

4.0 star rating Donna Adams from Maryland


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.

3.0 star rating Jackie from Chicago, Illinois


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.

2.0 star rating from Raleigh, North Carolina


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.

2.0 star rating John Doe from San Antonio, Texas


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 amplified. 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.

1.0 star rating Pat from Raleigh, North Carolina


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

1.0 star rating from Nashville, Tennessee


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.

1.0 star rating 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 money.
