Musicians often cultivate a dynamic stage persona by filling their shows with multiple costume changes, elaborate choreography, and family-vacation slideshows. Feast your eyes and ears on a thrilling performance with this GrouponLive deal to see Celtic Thunder at Toyota Presents Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford. For $25, you get one G-Pass for seating in sections 201–209 or 300–303 on Friday, September 28, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $63 value, including all fees). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
Since their debut at The Helix in Dublin, Ireland, in 2007, Celtic Thunder has released eight albums, hosted their own PBS specials, performed at the White House, and been named Top World Album Artist by Billboard. During their live shows, the ensemble of male singers dons dapper attire in the form of black suits, gray vests, and blue kilts before traversing the dynamically lit stage, belting out storied tunes in both solo and ensemble arrangements. Backed by traditional Irish instrumentation such as harp, fiddle, and tin whistle, they regale audiences with songs deeply engrained in Emerald Isle lore. The acoustic lullaby “Noreen” and the rollicking “My Irish Molly O” both sound at home in front of the set’s replica of ancient Celtic ruins. The performers also play Irish-flavored renditions of American classics, from the jig-inducing honky-tonk of Steve Earle’s “Galway Girl” to Harry Chapin’s “Cat’s in the Cradle,” a ballad about a feline who dreams of being a human baby.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
