"We are re-energized and more excited than ever to tour the United States," says founder and leader Paddy Moloney. "I feel that the upcoming tour could hold some of our most exciting shows to date. The band is at the height of performing and the shows are bigger and better than ever.”

    The world's most influential and successful traditional Irish band, The Chieftains are towering figures in Celtic music. The group has defined the genre for a popular audience worldwide during their astonishing 50-year career, collaborating with legends like Sting, Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell, and The Rolling Stones along the way. The band achieved the highest Billboard debut of its career in 2012 with Voice of Ages, which Rolling Stone called "killer" and Billboard hailed as "momentous."
