22 December, 2017

Regarded by many as Ireland’s top concert performer, John McNicholl returns by popular demand to The Alley Theatre, Strabane, on Friday, 22nd December.

This is following four very successful years of Christmas concerts at this venue and he received a sustained standing ovation at last year’s concert.

The star will be supported by Geri Kane, Gary Wilson and The John McNicholl Band.

John, who hails from the village of Foreglen, is without doubt one of the top singers in Ireland. This year, he has appeared at shows all over Ireland, England, Australia and America.

He takes his own fan club on tour to Nashville, Tennessee, on a yearly basis. The popular John performs at many venues on this tour, which sells out regularly.

During 2017, John starred in very successful Mediterranean and Caribbean cruises.

He has won many awards to date, including the male vocalist of the year.

This highlights the calibre of the Foreglen singer, when consideration is taken of the many talented artistes throughout Ireland. 

He has shared the stage with many top singers, including: Cliff Richard, Elton John, Ricky Skaggs, Reba McIntyre and Barry Gibb.

John, who is known as ‘Ireland’s Ambassador of Country Music’, will include many Christmas numbers and various tracks from his many past albums.

The popular Geri Kane will be the support act to the versatile John. She is a former member of the well known group, Luv Bug, who have toured all over the world. She has performed alongside many famous singers including Harry Secombe, Frank Ifield, Don McLean and Del Shannon.

The compere for this Christmas special will be Gary Wilson. Gary is known as ‘The Clown Prince of Comedy’ and his professionalism on stage is second to none. The big Fermanagh man has appeared in most of the top venues in the country and has had the honour of performing in front of a sell-out audience in the Belfast Waterfront.

He has also performed a song or two on stage and has been known to change the lyrics of some well known numbers.

The John McNicholl Band will perform on its own spot, as well as providing the backing music in this special seasonal concert. Four top class musicians make up the group and they have won many awards not only in Ireland but across the United Kingdom as well.

This concert will be a spectacular Christmas showpiece and is certainly one not to be missed.

What better Christmas presents could you give to your friends than tickets for this superb show?

John and the rest of the artistes are guaranteed to get you in the festive spirit.
