The Irish Rovers make Mayo Performing Arts Center a stop on their Farewell Tour on Thursday, March 13, 2014 at 8 pm. Tickets are $29-59.
With wit, a wink and a smile The Irish Rovers return to the US in 2014 for The Farewell Tour. Enjoy their irrepressible Irish charm and songs that have captivated audiences since 1964! Over the years, The Irish Rovers have become cherished music icons, have touched three generations of music lovers, and brought Ireland into North American living rooms with their three television series that spanned over twenty years.
These last few years, the Rovers have returned to television, sold out concert tours, returned to the radio airwaves, garnered rave reviews for their recent Gracehill Fair, Drunken Sailor, and Home In Ireland albums, attracted the attention of a new younger audience, and were touted in the press as "internet sensations!" The excitement around the Rovers these days confirms that their music continues to hit a chord with fans of all ages, and their musicianship onstage is attracting a younger generation of musicians to their shows.
It has been a long and magical journey for these Irish lads, and the magic keeps on coming. Due to YouTube, their Drunken Sailor song has reached a new young audience, with over 10,000,000 hits. Last year, Rovers songwriter/producer George Millar responded by heading back to the studio and recording a new CD full of songs of the sea, including a tribute to The Titanic for its 100th anniversary. The release made headlines in both America and Ireland, and was the soundtrack for a Canadian documentary about the Harland and Wolff shipyards of Belfast where the mighty ship was built
