The Irish Rovers
The Irish Rovers 50th Anniversary Tour
The Irish Rovers celebrate 50 Years of Music with a tour and CD Release of “The Irish Rovers, 50 Years” triple CD set which will be available at concerts.
The band was founded in Canada in Toronto but first became known on American television in the 60s. As guests on The Tonight Show, The Smothers Brothers Show, Mike Douglas Show, The Virginian, The Dating Game (George Millar actually won the date), they gained experience before hosting their first of three television series “The Irish Rovers Show” in the 70’s. At that time, fans enjoyed their early hits like Black Velvet Band, The Unicorn, Whiskey on a Sunday and Wasn't That A Party. These days, they’ve gone viral with Drunken Sailor!
Now with a career spanning 50 years they’re not retiring, but are slowing down the touring – ironically at a time when they’re getting some of the best reviews of their career:
“There’s no getting away from the quality of the Miller cousin’s vocals, vintage Irish balladeers from Ballymena with calculated wit and whimsy and a brogue to win the ladies hearts." Otago Daily Times, New Zealand
“ All the years of touring and playing haven’t eroded the band’s ferocious chops. Those musicians are so tight. They’re virtuosos!” Tallahassee Democrat
"When the band was jamming through traditional Irish sets you could close your eyes and imagine yourself at a ceili in a pub on the shamrock shore with a pint and a rocking-tight house band of the lads." Orange County Register
"What an unforgettable experience! The Irish Rovers excite even the most discerning audience member into having a rip-roaring good time." Foundation for the Performing ArtsAt the concert, fans will enjoy a mix of their hits, rollicking Jigs and Reels, plus hilarious stories from their years on the road.
