CELTIC WOMEN

Such a disappointment. The music was so loud that it drowned out the voices of the women. The drums were especially loud. I came to hear the beauty and simplicity of the womens voices. They sound much better on Tv with a live orchestra. Would never go to see them in person sgain

2 STARS IS BEING GENEROUS

Throughout the performance the musical accompaniment overpowered the voices to the extent that the lyrics were unintelligible. There was nothing outstanding about the vocalists. The fiddler was lively and entertaining. It seemed to me that some numbers had backup instrumentation. Overall, disappointing. Would not go again.

ONE STAR REVIEW FOR THE ONLY ONE STAR WHO APPEARED

My family and I have been enjoying Celtic Woman performances for many years and honestly, last night's show in Cincinnati is our last. We knew going into the show, we were minus Chloe but to have Meariad as the ONLY original performer and still call the Celtic Woman....very misleading and disappointing. The performer wearing a ball cap during the show....would not have seen this previously. From the start the show disappointed (down to the stains on one of the gowns worn)....am I being too tough, NO! the fact I am taking time to write this review sums my disappointment up. At least, I have my CDs....signed, not certain celtic woman will survive

DISAPPOINTING

My wife and I were in Seattle and saw that Celtic Woman was playing in Everett so we got tickets and were excited to see the show. I had checked reviews and was expecting a 2 1/2 hour show. Unfortunately it was just over 2 hours with a 20 minute intermission. With the dancing and musical interludes, I don't think they sang more than 8 songs, tops, none of which were new as far as I could tell. Perhaps the small stage in Xfinity Arena cramped their show, but even though the fiddler, singing and harmony were amazing, the concert was really quite boring. The smaller of the two male dancers was fantastic, though. After checking more reviews of the 2015 tour I see many reviews in which people are disappointed. I could not recommend this show. Purchase a DVD or Blueray and watch with a nice sound system and you might be better off.

DISAPPOINTED

We saw these ladies in 2019 and the show was spectacular so we purchased tickets for the next year which we didn’t get to use until 2022 due to Covid. We were so looking forward to seeing them again. Only two of the ladies were there from the 2019 performance which was disappointing. There was very little harmonizing with all of them. They mostly sang individual songs. It was definitely not as good as before.

EMPTY, FAKE, PERFORMANCE WITHOUT SOUL.

As hard as I tried, I could not warm up to the performance. I am a schooled musician, with experience playing in a multitude of groups including all genres from hard rock, to symphonic. No live percussion, no bodran, etc. A symphonic group without drums! Sampled and triggered percussion were done poorly and did not add anything to the performance. Musicians looked bored and unenthusiastic while playing the parts as written. Nothing more. Even many were dressed in black jeans and t shirts. The conductor directed like a robot without any real (much fakery dancing, etc) feeling. Sound was all one volume without dynamics. Conclusion: musically I watched an accurate symphony lacking feeling and enthusiasm. The notes were there, but nothing more. Likewise, the Women performed adequately but it felt empty, like a bad dream. The notes were there, but the posturing, fake smiles and dialogue (you could tell it was repetitive) seemed boring for them. Like all tours the repetition is a challenge. It is hard to rise up night after night, but as a pro, you dig down ever night. They did not. Visually, there were no backdrops or set design. Not even risers. Camera work was poorly done. No fades , no screen in screen. Honestly, i expected a much better “show”, and I felt ripped off. Save your money, buy a CD or DVD. YOU’ll get the same experience and save $100’s!

DISAPPOINTED!

I have been a beloved fan for many years however, if last nights performance at the Ovens Auditorium in Charlotte, NC was the first time seeing Celtic Women concert I would never bother watching them again. Unfortunately it was very uneventful actually most of the show was boring. When the men and bag pipe player came out to dance that was wonderful!!!! The violinist didn't have the charisma to say the least that Mairead Nesbitt had. Their voices were just not up to par that past Celtic Women cast members had. My party and I left toward the end of the show.
