Get Into the Ring with Gaelic Storm

Gaelic Storm returns to the Egyptian Theatre stage at 7:30 pm on Saturday, Feb. 16 and takes you into their ring as they belt out empowering anthems and traditional ballads from their dazzling #1 Billboard World Album Chicken Boxer! 

Great seats are available and ticket prices range from $25-$37!  You can purchase tickets online, at the box office or over the phone by calling 815-758-1225.

And don’t forget, Friends of the Egyptian are eligible for 10% off at The Hillside Restaurant, Mediterraneo, O’Leary’s Pub and Grill and Rosita’s Mexican Restaurant, and may also receive designated concession stand discounts.

With catalog sales of more than 1 million, the group has now had three albums debut at #1 on the Billboard World Albums Chart – What’s the Rumpus? from 2008, Cabbage from 2010, which remained parked in the top slot for three consecutive weeks, and now  Chicken Boxer released in 2012. Chicken Boxer is the fifth album to be released on the band’s own label, Lost Again Records, and showcases the incomparable songwriting and accomplished musicianship of a band that has made their mark bringing fans to their feet two hundred days per year.

The group’s ability to deftly incorporate a rock sensibility into their sound affords them rare crossover appeal. In recent years, they have performed on the same bill with acts ranging from the Zac Brown Band and the Goo Goo Dolls, to Emmylou Harris and Lyle Lovett, and at events as varied as the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Milwaukee’s Summerfest.  With their signature acoustic production, Gaelic Storm blends indie-folk and world grooves with Celtic tradition to serve up a ringside seat for fifteen rounds of pugilistic poultry pounding sound.  In other words, music from Chicken Boxer will knock you out!
