Celtic Thunder: Mythology Tour

Thursday, June 12, 7.30pm

Irish supergroup Celtic Thunder will dedicate its biggest and most spectacular Australian tour to the memory of principal singer George Donaldson.

Donaldson’s death in March stunned his bandmates and fans.

Affectionately known as Big George, he was invaluable in helping to establish the show’s trademark celebration of Celtic heritage.

Emmet Cahill, who left the band in December to pursue a solo career, has rescheduled other commitments to join the tour with Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, Neil Byrne and Colm Keegan, to pay tribute to and honour their lost friend and colleague.

“I am deeply saddened by the death of not only a colleague but a friend and felt that it was only right to rejoin the guys on this momentous occasion, paying homage to a wonderful man,” Cahill said.

The tour will include a show at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre on June 12.

Fans can get the Celtic Thunder Experience for $299, which includes a pre-show cocktail function with canapes, beer, wine and soft drink, an official tour program, souvenir gift, and central seating in the first five rows, as well as a meet and greet with two Celtic Thunder members.

Bookings for the VIP treatment must be made a fortnight before the event.

Gold and silver seating is also available.
