Saturday, February 14, 2015 at 7:30 PM Gaelic Storm Live in Concert Over the course of 10 albums and nearly 3,000 live shows, Gaelic Storm - the chart-topping, multi-national Celtic band - is dishing up a hearty serving of Full Irish - The Best of Gaelic Storm. The greatest-hits album spans the bulk of the band's career, mixing crowd favorites and concert staples with three previously unreleased recordings, including "Whiskey in the Jar" and "Irish Party in Third Class" from Titanic. The album features sea shanties and drinking songs, traditional tunes and Gaelic Storm originals, instrumental workouts and vocal showcases. Regularly playing more than 120 shows a year, Gaelic Storm has built a loyal following as diverse as the band's own music. Fans of traditional Irish music have championed the group for years, as have fans of harder-edged Celtic rock. On tour, Gaelic Storm is just as likely to play a large rock club as a plush theater. Gaelic Storm has straddled the line between tradition and innovation for nearly two decades, infusing traditional Celtic music with modern influences, and updating the genre for a new generation of fans raised on rock, country and folk. Along the way, the group has topped the Billboard World Chart four times and earned a reputation as a hard-touring, genre-bending band. Tickets for Friends of the Egyptian Theatre members go on sale Wednesday, October 1 at 10:00 AM. Tickets for the general public go on sale Friday, October 3 at 10:00 AM. Reserved tickets are $25-$37 http://egyptiantheatredekalb.ticketforce.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=16
