The Irish Rovers 2017 - Boys of the Emerald Isle Tour

Presented by SBL Entertainment
CHRISTOPHER COHAN CENTER

 The Celtic super-band was founded in Canada in Toronto but first became known on American television in the 60s. As guests on shows like The Tonight Show, The Smothers Brothers Show, Mike Douglas Show, The Virginian, The Dating Game (George Millar actually won the date), they gained experience before hosting their first of three international television series, “The Irish Rovers Show” for the CBC.  

Over the next twenty years they became staples of the world music scene with two more international television series, and performing at five World Expos. At that time, fans enjoyed their early hits like Black Velvet Band, The Unicorn, Whisky on a Sunday and Wasn't That A Party. These days they’ve produced two more television specials, “The Irish Rovers Home in Ireland” and “The Irish Rovers Christmas”, plus gone viral with their Drunken Sailor!

The days of the long tours are finally coming to an end for these Irish lads as they are now completing one last world tour. After that, they will rove again only for special events, festivals and longer stays. International touring will happen only on a very limited scale. At concerts, fans will enjoy a mix of their hits, rollicking Jigs and Reels, plus hilarious stories from their years on the road.

Audiences can also expect The Irish Rovers legendary career in a triple CD set, aptly named “The Irish Rovers, 50 Years”. Plus, after nearly 40 years of waiting, the Rovers have also just released their second Children’s album, “Songs for the Wee Folk” all available at concerts!
