From a press release:

It was announced today that Alan Doyle and the Beautiful Gypsies will visit the F.M. Kirby Center on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the venue’s ongoing “Live from the Chandelier Lobby” concert series.

Tickets, which are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the show, go on sale this Friday, June 10 at 10 a.m. and will be available at the Kirby Center box office (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre), online at, and by phone at 570-826-1100. A special Kirby Member pre-sale will begin Wednesday, June 8 at 10 a.m. Members buy first, so join today at 570-823-4599, ext. 225.

Doyle, an actor, producer, newly-minted best-selling author, and best known as lead singer for Newfoundland’s beloved Great Big Sea, is on tour in support of his latest solo album, “So Let’s Go.” The album is a rousing rallying cry that’s only further proof of Doyle’s ability to draw the listener under his banner.

Doyle hails from Petty Harbour, Newfoundland, Canada and formed Great Big Sea in 1993 with Sean McCann, Bob Hallett, and Darrell Power, in which they fused traditional Newfoundland music with their own pop sensibilities. Their nine albums, double-disc hits retrospective, and two DVD releases have been declared gold or platinum and have sold a combined 1.2 million copies in Canada.

“So Let’s Go” continues to cement Doyle’s reputation as one of North America’s most treasured musicians and storytellers.

“I always want people to have the greatest night of their life when the house lights go down,” Doyle said.

Equally adept at drawing a crowd, Alan Doyle and the Beautiful Gypsies are taking their energetic show across Canada and the U.S. in 2016.
