Due to the ongoing world health crisis and the continued upwards trend of COVID-19 cases in many US states, Irish Supergroup Celtic Thunder has taken a decision to move its 2020 US and Canadian tour dates to Fall/ Winter 2021. Show producer Sharon Browne cites current US Visa Entry Restrictions for non-US residents, the uncertain timeline for reopening of venues across North America and varying quarantine regulations for movement between States as contributing factors for moving the tour to 2021. Tickets for Celtic Thunder Ireland at the San Jose Civic for Nov. 1, 2020 has been rescheduled to Nov. 2, 2021. All tickets will be honored on the new date.
“Having been in contact with our Promoters and Partners over the past few uncertain months, there is a wide variance from State to State and city to city in terms of cases of Covid-19 and venues being shut down. It has become clear that several states will not be opening theatres this fall. The uncertainty surrounding the timeline for a vaccine has increased our concerns about the health and wellbeing of our fans, our cast and our crew. As a result, we feel we have no alternative but to reschedule our “Celtic Thunder Ireland” tour of the USA and Canada to Fall 2021” states Ms. Browne.
“We, like everyone else the world over, are concerned about the health of our families and community and wish for our fans to remain safe and protected in these troubling times. The prospect of our future tour is something positive that we carry with us now, and we very much look forward to welcoming our fans to a Celtic Thunder show again soon” says Celtic Thunder soloist Ryan Kelly.
