The heart of Ireland beats strongly throughout The Destiny Tour, which features an entirely new production with many songs from the forthcoming DESTINY CD/ DVD. As the country commemorates the events of 100 years ago that led to the nation’s independence, Celtic Woman offers a rousing version of “Óró sé do bheatha ‘bhaile,” an anthem closely connected with the 1916 uprising. The all female ensemble also delivers other timeless traditional Irish songs such as “Bean Pháidín” and "Siuil A Ruin" highlighting the beauty of Ireland’s heritage and its Gaelic language. Alongside newer songs such as “Walk Beside Me” and “The Whole Of The Moon,” the show also features reimagined renditions of audience favorites “Amazing Grace” and “You Raise Me Up.”

Named Billboard Magazine’s #1 World Albums Artist Six Times, Celtic Woman showcases three world class vocalists Mairéad Carlin, Susan McFadden and newest member Éabha McMahon and brilliant Celtic violinist Máiréad Nesbitt accompanied by a group of equally talented musicians and dancers whose exceptional skills and high energy bring a fresh fusion to centuries of musical and cultural tradition.

Currently, Celtic Woman is finishing up its 10th Anniversary World Tour, celebrating a decade of music and dance from the Emerald Isles. The busy group wraps up 2015 with a November series in the United Kingdom followed by its fifth annual Christmas holiday tour accompanied by a full symphony orchestra. 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. In the U.S., every Celtic Woman album including 2013’s Emerald Musical Gems - debuted at #1 on Billboard's World Album chart. As a touring powerhouse, the group has performed for over three million fans on six continents in 23 countries.
