The Irish Rovers celebrate 50 Years of Music with a tour and CD Release of “The Irish Rovers, 50 Years” triple CD set which will be available at concerts.
The band was founded in Canada in Toronto but first became known on American television in the 60s. As guests on 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 television series “The Irish Rovers Show” in the 70’s. At that time, fans enjoyed their early hits like Black Velvet Band, The Unicorn, Whisky on a Sunday and Wasn't That A Party.
Now with a career spanning 50 years they’re not retiring, but are slowing down the touring – ironically at a time when they’re getting some of the best reviews of their career:
At the concert, fans will enjoy a mix of their hits, rollicking Jigs and Reels, plus hilarious stories from their years on the road.
