Review for Celtic Thunder X: 

Backed by the amazing Celtic Thunder Band, the singers (Damian McGinty, Ryan Kelly, Michael O’Dwyer, Emmet Cahill and Neil Byrne) deliver new ensemble numbers including “Sons of Light”, “Toora, Loora, Lay”, “The Wild Rover”, “Right all right”, and “Castle on the Hill” followed in the second act by nostalgic fun songs like “Celebration”, “I’m a Believer”, “Seasons in the Sun” and “Rise Again”.

No Celtic Thunder show would be complete without an encore of their rousing anthem “Ireland’s Call”, the only song in Celtic THunder X that isn’t a new song but which never fails to bring the audience to its feet.
