When the Irish Rovers take to the stage tonight, there will be a little bit more luck on their side than usual.
That’s because today, St. Patrick’s Day, the Irish Rovers will be performing at the Port Theatre at 5 p.m., as part of the 50th Anniversary tour.
Irish Rovers founding member and Ireland native, George Millar said it is always special to perform on St. Patrick’s Day.
“It is a great day,” he said. “It actually started off in Ireland as more of a religious day … and all of sudden now it is a great excuse to have a Guinness at 3 p.m.”
The Irish Rovers were formed in 1963 and have since released countless albums and toured around the world.
Millar said it’s more than just luck that has kept the band going after all these years.
“We really like each other a lot and we also really admire and like the music that we are playing,” he said.
The Irish Rovers perform at the Port Theatre. Tickets to the concert are sold out.
There will be a beer garden in Diana Krall Plaza, which will live stream the concert on video screens.
General admission is $12 while the Beer Garden is $14 for admission.
