Almost 2 hours of Celtic Thunder performances on DVD with featuring 13 new songs!
Since thier debut, Celtic Thunder has spent over 45 weeks at the top of the Billboard World Music Charts, knocking themselves out of number 1 spot with their second CD "Celtic Thunder Act II." Now Celtic Thunder presents Take Me Home (filmed at Casino Rama in Ontario, Canada on April 21st '09) an all new show on CD and DVD.
The concert event features almost all new material with three of the most popular songs from the original Celtic Thunder pledge PBS show included for the uninitiated. The new songs are dynamic and exciting. Heart throb Damian (a foot and a half taller with a new deeper voice) has great new songs in "Happy Birthday Sweet 16" and "Breaking Up is Hard to Do" and would give a young Neil Sedaka or Frankie Vallie a run for his money! Ryan's dark destroyer character develops well with a rendition of Sting's "Every Breath You Take", George's personality and sense of humour comes to the fore in "500 Miles", a highlight in the show and Paul's performance of "You Raise Me Up" is not to be missed. Keith, the blonde surfer dude will more than please his fans with "Castles in the Air" accompanying himself on the guitar. The performers come together for both "Take Me Home" and "Working Man" and as ever their voices even more powerful in these ensemble songs, and in the harmony pieces. "Danny's Boy" A Cappella, has been included due to popular demand after their performance for "St Patrick's Day" on 5th Ave and performing it at the White House that night.
Also Available: A new studio CD that features 15 songs/14 never before on CD!
