Broadway Series South will present the brand-new North American tour of the internationally acclaimed vocal phenomenon, Celtic Woman: Believe, at 8 p.m. on March 2nd in Raleigh Memorial Auditorium in the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Raleigh, NC. The Celtic Woman tour will support the group’s new CD/DVD release, “Believe.” It started on Feb. 3rd in Nashville, TN, and will include performances in approximately 60 cities.

According to Broadway Series South:

“Celtic Woman’s breathtaking new show, Believe, features the all-female singing sensation performing classic Irish tunes, such as ‘The Water Is Wide,’ ‘Green Grow the Rushes,’ ‘A Woman’s Heart,’ and ‘The Parting Glass’; timeless pop anthems such as ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ and ‘Sailing’; and inspirational songs including ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ and ‘Ave Maria,’ with their signature Celtic Woman twist, under the distinct musical direction of Emmy-nominated music producer David Downes. Celtic Woman’s awe-inspiring vocalists and mesmerizing violinist will be backed by a dazzling six-piece band, the Aontas Choir, and renowned championship Irish dancer.

“Celtic Woman’s newest studio CD and companion DVD, ‘Believe’, [was released on] Jan. 24th through Manhattan Records. Filmed for the first time in America in front of some of their most loyal fans at The Fox Theatre (Atlanta, GA) in September, 2011, ‘Believe: Live’ began airing Dec. 3rd on Public Television stations around the country as part of the network’s quarterly pledge drive.

“Since their March 2005 American debut on Public Television, Celtic Woman quickly emerged as a spectacular commercial success, selling more than six million CDs/DVDs and over two million concert tickets worldwide. Their genre-defining, multi-Platinum-selling projects have each held #1 positions on the Billboard World Music Charts: ‘Celtic Woman’ (CD/DVD 2005), ‘A Christmas Celebration’ (CD/DVD 2006), ‘A New Journey’ (CD/DVD 2007), ‘The Greatest Journey’ (CD/DVD 2008), and ‘Songs from the Heart’ (CD/DVD 2010).

“Celtic Woman’s signature sound has emerged as a transcendent force and their spectacular live shows embody a radiance and purity that connects powerfully with their adoring fan base. Celtic Woman’s all-new production, Believe, marks the pinnacle of their illustrious career, a celebration of musical enchantment to be enjoyed by the entire family!”
