Irish music sensation Celtic Woman, Billboard's No. 1 World Music Artist, returns in the all-new Destiny concert tour! CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO A PREVIEW OF CELTIC WOMAN

Multi-platinum Irish music sensation Celtic Woman presents Destiny, an enchanting new show and world concert tour that honors Ireland's past while bringing a contemporary musical edge to songs old and new. The tour celebrates the release of Celtic Woman's newest album, Destiny (which dominated the #1 spot on Billboard's World Music chart for seven weeks, their 9th album to hit #1 in a decade-long career).

The Destiny Tour features an entirely new production showcasing vocalists Mairéad Carlin, Susan McFadden and newest member Éabha McMahon, along with brilliant Celtic violinist and founding member Máiréad Nesbitt, accompanied by a group of equally talented musicians and dancers. Their 10th album and first of all-new material since 2011 Believe, Destiny features a fresh fusion of traditional Irish music and modern songcraft, including the Waterboys classic "The Whole of the Moon," Ed Sheeran's "I See Fire," from The Hobbit, Mutt Lange's "Walk Beside Me," Brendan Graham's "Sometimes a Prayer Will Do," and the popular video game theme, "Skyrim."

In 2016, as Ireland commemorates the Irish Rebellion of 100 years ago that led to its nation's independence, Celtic Woman offers a rousing version of "Óró sé do bheatha 'bhaile," an anthem closely connected with the 1916 Easter Rising. The group also delivers timeless traditional Irish songs such as "Bean Pháidín" and "Siúil A Run" highlighting the beauty of Ireland's heritage and its Gaelic language.

This unforgettable live concert experience features all new stage designs, stunning wardrobes and magnificent arrangements with superb choreography.

Celtic Woman made its debut on PBS in 2005 and achieved massive success encompassing nine albums and eight DVDs which sold over nine million copies worldwide and reached platinum-level sales in nine countries. As a touring powerhouse, the group has performed for over three million fans on six continents in 23 countries.

Join Celtic Woman on the next chapter of their musical journey—a true destiny to be shared by all!
