Direct from the Celtic Thunder publication The Celtic Times. I generally try to stick to original content on here, but there are always exceptions. There are almost certainly many Thunderheads among those who are struggling to recover from the effects of Hurricane Sandy, so this is an event of particular importance to our fan community. For more information about this event, you should go to the Celtic Thunder website.
“Celtic Thunder are very pleased to announce that they will be performing an exclusive unplugged benefit concert in NYC on Monday December 3rd for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Colm, Emmet, Keith, Ryan, Neil & George will perform an acoustic session in a 75 minute concert, at Sullivan Hall, 214 Sullivan Street, New York. The concert will start at 8:30PM and doors will open at 8PM.
As this venue is a club, it is age restricted and fans must be over 21 to attend.
Tickets for the show cost $50 and can be purchased in advance by clicking here. We strongly suggest that you purchase tickets in advance as the space is very limited and we anticipate selling out well before the show date.
Can’t make it to NY? You still have an opportunity to see this unique event. We are offering “Armchair Passes” to our fans for $20. The show will be filmed on the night and you can order a download of the unplugged gig on video. The video of the gig will be available for download on the Celtic Thunder website on Saturday December 8th. To purchase your Armchair Pass click here.
All of the proceeds from this concert will go to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City which supports Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. For more information on this fund please visit the Mayor’s Fund Website. Let’s join together to help the victims, a lot of whom are also Irish Americans, of this horrendous storm.”
