Tickets from €35 to see the Wolfe Tones go on sale this Wednesday, January 18th at 10am.
Due to phenomenal demand and after selling out two nights in February to date, The Wolfe Tones have announced two extra shows in 3Olympia Theatre on April 16th and 17th 2023.
Noel Nagle, Tommy Byrne and Brian Warfield today comprise one of the world's most popular Irish trad/folk groups.
Currently celebrating an unbelievable 58 years on the road, their longevity and success is unparalleled and their icon status in the world of Irish entertainment has long since been secured.
First seeing the light of day during the so-called ballad boom of the early 1960s, The Wolfe Tones started out on a career which has taken them to the heights of not just Irish, but international entertainment.
Their achievements include receiving the Freedom of the cities of New York and Los Angeles, being presented with Philadelphia’s greatest honour – The Liberty Bell, and appearing in New York’s Carnegie Hall on numerous occasions.
In March last year, the trio sold out two nights on New York’s Broadway with highly acclaimed performances in the prestigious Town Hall Theatre where they made the rafters ring in their own inimitable style.
In 1966, the band set off to play America and released their third album. In 1968, The Wolfe Tones were voted Ireland’s second most popular group. Since 1968, The Wolfe Tones have released 16 albums, all of which have been met with acclaim.
The band have recently revamped their stage show to incorporate many ballads from their extensive back catalogue. With an ever-changing set list, the show is revitalised with material not performed on the concert stage for many years, as well as newly composed ballads taken from their forth coming album release due in November this year.
It's their firm belief that it is the work of the ballad maker to reflect the times they live in, and there is no one could argue that The Wolfe Tones have not carried on that century’s old bardic tradition.
Late last year, the outfit defended Ireland's national women's football squad for singing 'Celtic Symphony' in the dressing rooms after qualifying for the World Cup.
Tickets from €35 including booking fees on sale Wednesday, 18th January at 10am.
