Picked this up at the Christmas show in New Philadelphia, Ohio.

An opportunity arose to get out of town the weekend of December 10th.  So, bought a ticket to see Chloe in North Georgia on the 11th.  According to Google, it's only 1-1/2 hours from the Atlanta airport.  Since Atlanta has a lot of flights to a lot of places, CW is in New Philadelphia, Ohio on the 13th.  That's doable either by driving or flying. Only real issue is the selection of seats isn't great. 

Toured 2023 / Tour Postponed?
« on: October 28, 2022, 01:22:47 PM »
So I reached out to my local PBS station early today about tickets.  I just got a response saying the 2023 tour has been postponed until 2024. 

Anyone else heard anything like this?

Chloe Agnew / Roswell GA show
« on: December 07, 2021, 09:07:51 AM »
So I went to the Atlanta Pops show featuring John Driskell Hopkins and CHLOE AGNEW on Sunday.  Overall, I really enjoyed the concert.  Some new, updated arrangements of old Christmas songs.

Going back to the 1970's, one of the greatest female singers was Karen Carpenter.  I have a couple of her records.  She did a song called Merry Christmas Darling.  Chloe did that song Sunday night!  When I got home last night, I dug out the Karen Carpenter record and listened to her doing that song.  OMG, Chloe's version was eerily close to Karen's.  I loved it!!

Ancient Land / PBS -- Ancient Land
« on: August 17, 2021, 08:21:41 AM »
So last night (Monday), I noticed my local PBS station was playing the Ancient Land show.  Didn't know it was pledge week, but what the heck, watch it anyway.  Maybe they have a good deal on tickets for the upcoming tour.  (I already have tickets, but you never know).

Anyway, when they cut away to the pledge section, it was a recorded spiel for CELTIC THUNDER!  Hope you are enjoying the show; the guys will be here in a couple months, etc.

Postcards from Ireland / Prices
« on: May 06, 2021, 11:27:12 AM »
So I just bought a couple tickets for the show in Daytona Beach.  The CW tour site links to TicketMonster.  I paid $166 per ticket for 4th row.  I have tickets (from 2 years ago) for the show in St Pete, FL.  Those were (and still are) only $85 each.

Anyone else notice a discrepancy in price?

Chloe Agnew / March 28th show

Anyone going?

Mairead Nesbitt / April 1 show
« on: March 10, 2021, 03:53:15 PM »
So I was considering trying to go to Mairead's show in Tallahassee on April 1.  It's only a 4 hour drive, and $60 is OK for a ticket.  However, and maybe it's because I'm an old guy, I was having issues with the venue's web site.  I understand the whole "social distance" means certain seats are blocked off.  OK, where is my seat?  Their seat map doesn't seem to either allow you to pick your seat or show the "best available".  If I'm spending the time and money to go (and the legislature is in session so hotel rooms are nuts), I'd at least like a good seat.

Celebration: The 15th Anniversary Tour / On or Off?
« on: October 14, 2020, 03:46:10 PM »
So I have tickets for 2 shows (so far!) next year.  One is for a show that was postponed.  The other one I just bought.  One is local; one requires traveling.  If I'm going to travel, there's a second show I will go to.  Once you figure out the cost of a plane ticket, hotel, rental care, etc. the second show doesn't really cost that much.

I know the CW web site is listing shows.  But, on the other hand, Broadway is shut down until May 2021.

I tend to believe that IF the tour goes forward, there will NOT be any M&G's. 

My poll question is "Do you think there will be shows next year?"  Maybe the real question is what will happen with COVID, but this is a CW forum. 

Celebration: The 15th Anniversary Tour / 2021 Tour
« on: July 18, 2020, 07:57:16 PM »
So it appears most of the 2021 dates are now up.  I still had a ticket for one of this year's cancelled shows which I let roll over to 2021.  I started seeing if I could plan another road trip. 

I have always tried to buy thru PBS so I could get a M&G, especially since Chloe is touring with CW.  So far none of the PBS stations I checked with have anything listed on their web sites.  Yes, for most of them it's probably too early.

However, I'm also guessing that there will not be any M&G's next year due to COVID. 

At least I got a second row in St Pete, FL.  What's getting out of hand with the venues is not the ticket cost ($123.50), but the over $30 in added fees (handling, etc).

If Chloe was touring on her own again next year, I'd probably not travel to see a CW show.

Celtic Woman / What was your first show?
« on: June 02, 2020, 10:57:28 AM »
Since there isn't a lot going on right now, and I don't recall seeing this question asked before ...

What was the first Live show you went to?

For me, it was February 14, 2007 in Tampa, Florida.

Susan McFadden / Facebook Live 05/05/20
« on: May 05, 2020, 07:29:52 PM »
Watching part of Susan's Facebook Live caused me to remember one of my Susan stories.

Back in 2012, I was at the show at RCMH in NYC.  (OK, that was actually my 3rd show of the year).  Anyway, part of the show included CW's Tribute to Broadway (I Dream a Dream & Circle of Life).

A couple nights later, I was in Albany, NY, and I had a M&G.  This was the last year they did them after the show, and you got to meet 2 of the ladies -- you didn't know which ones.   That night it was Lisa and Susan. 

I said to Susan that she was really brave doing a Tribute to Broadway while (more or less) on Broadway.  She said that didn't bother her as much as the NYC show was the first CW show her parents saw her in.

Since I seem to have some spare time, I started going thru some old boxes/files/etc.  Found the attached.

Celebration: The 15th Anniversary Tour / Morgantown WV -- April 1
« on: January 28, 2020, 08:21:24 AM »
I was planning on going to see Chloe at Tybee Island (Savannah, GA) on March 28.  So, since I'm on the road, what else can I do?  MA is kind of a long drive, but what about Morgantown WV?  So no M&G (that I could find) but what do you know!  A front row, mostly center seat is available!!

So, Chloe on Saturday, then drive to Asheville NC to go thru the Biltmore with the Downton Abbey exhibit, then on to Morgantown!. 

That will be CW show #4 this year, plus 2 Chloe individual shows!

Chloe Agnew / Bluffton SC December 9
« on: December 11, 2019, 06:49:28 AM »
I ended up making a quick trip (6 hour drive) to Bluffton Monday night to see Chloe's show. It was scheduled back in October, but got postponed. 

Show was at a fairly small venue called The Roasting Room.  Maybe 60 people, but it was a sell-out.  There was a M&G so I got another photo to add to my collection, plus she signed one of her new CDs for a Christmas gift.

Chloe was her usual charming self, which is one of the main reasons I will still travel to see her.

The show was a mix of her normal songs (think her new CD) and a few Christmas songs.  She did Silent Night in Irish!!  One other highlight was Merry Christmas Darling.  If you close your eyes, you can hear a little bit of Karen Carpenter.  Great song.

Because (apparently) of school, the show didn't start until 8:00.  Not knowing where I was going, I got there too early.  The venue is on the second floor of a building.  There's an outside stair and a balcony.  I got to hear a bit of the sound check from there.  I got a "hi" from Chloe as she was leaving.  No intermission.  They do roll up the sidewalks in Bluffton at about 6. 

No Dermot.  A piano player and a fiddle player.
