There's been a lot of talk on here about Minnesota Christmas shows. On Friday night before the filming, we met and talked with the man who handles Celtic Woman's tour bookings. I asked him why no Minnesota Orchestra on the Christmas tours. His response was "no comment". Interesting, and as I have suspected for quite some time, there's some unknown thing going on that has them not perform with the Minnesota Orchestra. Thought you all would be interested in that little tidbit.

He also said that Red Rocks is incredibly difficult to book and it sounds unlikely for there to be a Red Rocks show next year. Darn, we thought that was likely for the 20th Anniversary!
Mystic Lake is Saturday December 9.

I just saw that and I had just been sharing the info I had previously because MN was getting talked about extensively on here.

Gregg and I will be there! Mystic Lake is 5 miles from our house! Woop!

My gut says that CW has typically hit Red Rocks every  other year.  Same thing with RCMH.  Both of those are fairly big venues from a seating capacity, so maybe they have concerns about how many people would attend.  We all know everything costs more, especially after COVID.  Are people going to shows of any kind less than they were several years ago? 

I'd spend the money to go to either one without a second thought, but I also realize a lot of people can't do that.

They seem to be using smaller venues in general, at least where I live. Even at the multi-theater venue where they're coming for Christmas here, they used to use the "large" theater (capacity = 3000). But now they are using the "medium" theater (capacity < 2000). In their prime, they used theaters in L.A. with seating capacity of 6000 or more.

At the 20th Anniversary filming, in the lobby before the show, a few of us talked to the man who books Celtic Woman tours. It was a really interesting conversation and included talking about Red Rocks specifically. He said Red Rocks is an incredibly difficult venue to book. I have also been told that venues book two years in advance (and I wouldn't be surprised if Red Rocks was even longer). So it's not for lack of trying if it doesn't get onto the schedule for next year.
