Celtic Thunder - It's Entertainment! Saturday, June 12 at 8:30 PM.

Since 2007, Celtic Thunder has been delighting audiences with an eclectic mix of traditional Irish music and contemporary pop ballads. In the group's latest special, It’s Entertainment!, the singers pay tribute to those who paved the way for them, by evoking the era of big bands as they perform some of the greatest songs of the last 30 years. Working in the tradition of a true variety show, the performers cover a mix of styles, songs, and singers, saluting some of their musical heroes, including: Fred Astaire, Neil Diamond, Jim Croce, Chicago, U2, Michael Buble, and The Beach Boys. Combining solos with small group and ensemble numbers - all songs performed with the men's signature style and high energy - Celtic Thunder provides something for everyone in this feel-good show.

Want to experience the energy firsthand? Celtic Thunder is coming to the Veterans Memorial Auditorium (VMA) on Tuesday, December 7th, and Rhode Island PBS has premium tickets available. To enjoy the rollicking televised concert, and to get tickets for the live show in Providence, tune in Saturday, June 12 at 8:30 PM (cable subscribers can also watch the show on Sunday, June 13 at 10:30 PM).
