Icons of Irish music, The Irish Rovers return to B.C. to celebrate their 50 years of music. In the midst of their final world tour, the Rovers will be in Kelowna on March 5. On this tour they’ll also begin filming for their final DVD, live on St. Patrick’s Day in Nanaimo.

The second part of the DVD will be filmed in Ireland at Lismore Castle where they’ll hold a four-day music session.

For all attending tour stops in B.C., you’ll get one heck of a St. Patrick’s celebration, and may be part of the behind the scenes shoot for their new DVD.

With a career spanning 50 years and three generations of music lovers, The Irish Rovers are giving fans one final chance to say goodbye before they call time on their demanding world tour schedules – ironically at a time when they’re getting some of the best reviews of their career. As they sail through their Big Five Oh, concert-goers can expect the CD Release of “The Irish Rovers, 50 Years” triple CD set, available at concerts.
