The Seven Irish Tenors
The Seven Irish Tenors originated in Dublin more than a decade ago with the sole intent of showcasing to the world the finest young exponents of Irish singing.
As time has evolved personnel in the troupe have changed, with many international performers of Irish descent joining the company to continue the tradition of Irish tenor singing that focuses on purity of voice. Under the tutelage of the Producer of the world-famous Irish dance company, Spirit Of The Dance, the company now boasts a pool of Irish tenors who, when playing large arenas are expanded to twelve performers.

In this 2-hour concert performed entirely by The Seven Irish Tenors, you’ll be thrilled to hear Irish favourites such as “Danny Boy”, “The Rose Of Tralee”, “MacNamara’s Band”,”Phil The Fluter’s Ball”, “Galway Bay” and “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling”, as well as more contemporary songs like “You Raise Me Up”, “We Are The Champions”, and favourites such as “You’ll Never Walk Alone” “The Rhythm Of Life” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water”. There’s even some fabulous Beatles songs including “Hey Jude”– all performed by young, handsome, sparkling performers much acclaimed in Europe. And of course there wouldn’t be a show without “O Sole Mio”, “Funiculi, Funicula” and the spine-tingling “Nessun Dorma”! As the International Post wrote after experiencing The Seven Irish Tenors - “they are simply breathtaking”
