Stewart & Tricia McPherson PRESENT
The Farewell to Rovin' Tour
This is the last time The Irish Rovers will tour New Zealand!
The Rovers have sold out concert tours, returned to the radio airwaves, garnered rave reviews for their recent Gracehill Fair, Home In Ireland and Drunken Sailor albums, attracted the attention of a new younger audience, and were touted in the press as “internet sensations!” The excitement around the Rovers these days confirms that their music continues to hit a chord with fans of all ages.
It has been a long and magical journey for these Irish lads, and the magic continues. Due to YouTube, their Drunken Sailor song reached a new young audience, with over 10,000,000 hits.
Over these 50 years, The Irish Rovers have become cherished music icons, touched three generations of music lovers, and now receiving some of the best concert reviews of their career.
Tallahassee Democrat “All the years of touring and playing haven’t eroded the band’s ferocious chops. “Those musicians are so tight, They’re virtuosos!”
Orange County Register “When the band was jamming through traditional Irish sets you could close your eyes and imagine yourself at a ceili in a pub on the shamrock shore with a pint and a rocking tight house band of the lads..."
Performing Arts Foundation "What an unforgettable experience! The Irish Rovers excite even the most discerning audience member into having a rip-roaring good time!"
