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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
