One of Ireland's best loved artists, Daniel O'Donnell has announced that he will be returning to tour in the USA this May & June, including a stop at the F.M. Kirby Center on Saturday, May 20 at 8:00 p.m. The tour will see the record breaking chart singer play a more extensive concert tour than he did in Oct 2016, when he performed in venues in the Mid-East of the USA to packed houses of ardent fans. Tickets are available at kirbycenter.org, at the Kirby Box Office and charge by phone at 570-826-1100. Commenting on the tour announcement Daniel said "I'm really looking forward to returning to touring the USA next year. We introduced some new musicians and some different instruments when we went back touring earlier this year and I am delighted to say that they have been a great success, fans everywhere have complimented them on their great talent as musicians and have really welcomed them on boardť." Although he took a break in early 2016 to tour the world with his wife Majella, Daniel added "I was really looking forward to going back on the road in America and getting back out there to meet the fans, who I'm so very thankful for, as they are the ones who make these shows happen. We really enjoyed the short set of dates we performed in October and are already looking forward to next year's tourť." Daniel burst into superstardom in the USA back in 2002 with his first ever PBS special "The Daniel O'Donnell Show". That began a special relationship between Daniel and PBS and since then, he has recorded a further twelve specials, with "Stand Beside Me" being his thirteenth one in 2013. Stand beside Me is a concert celebration of Irish, country, gospel, rock, movie and long-time Daniel O'Donnell favourites. The title "Stand Beside Me" is not only a popular song among concert goers, but also reflects Daniel's belief that fans throughout his more than 10 years on PBS have brought him to where he is today, standing beside him making his career a success and he will be forever grateful to them.
