Named by Billboard Magazine as The Top World Music Artists of the Year, Verve Recording artists, Celtic Thunder, have wowed millions with their chart topping albums and live performances. In the midst of their highly successful and largely sold out US tour, the band has chosen to pause to give back to those directly affected by Hurricane Sandy. On Monday, December 3rd, Celtic Thunder will arrive in New York City for a day of outreach and a benefit concert. The band will visit various neighborhoods in New York giving residents much needed blankets and gloves as people continue to rebuild their lives after the effects of the storm during the winter months.
Later that evening, the band will head to Manhattan for an unplugged benefit concert at Sullivan Hall. Celtic Thunderhas been working with The Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment and will donate all ticket proceeds to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City. The benefit concert will begin at 8:30 pm. The Irish Band is especially grateful for the opportunity to give back to many Irish American families living in the affected areas of the storm. Concert tickets are $50 for the benefit concert and can be purchased at http://bit.ly/TYo55z. For those that cannot attend the show but still want to donate, ArmChair passes can be purchased at https://gumroad.com/l/uMNLM for $20 with access to the show via video download. 100% of all proceeds will go towards Hurricane Sandy Relief efforts.
