2007-01-18 Homecoming gig sold out

TONIGHT'S highly anticipated homecoming performance by Omagh singer Daryl Simpson and his Internationally renowned colleagues in the Celtic Tenors is a complete sell-out.


Over 400 tickets went on general sale locally for this unique show being held at St Columba's Church, Omagh, but from the beginning of this week it has been completely sold out.


Mike Reynolds, of Reynolds Music Store, who sold tickets for this show, declared that not only are they sold out but they have a waiting list of over 20 people in case there are any cancellations, which he described as a "great appreciation by the people from this area".


Daryl has been performing all over the world during the past eight months with the Celtic Tenors who have been described as the "most successful classical crossover artists ever to have come out of Ireland."


He recently returned from his fourth tour of the States in six months and this hectic schedule has continued recently with more dates around Ireland leading up to his homecoming performance in Omagh tonight (Thursday).


Daryl said, "It will be nice to be involved with an international act in my home town and I think it is a great opportunity for people to see now what I have been doing for the past number of years.


"It is always a privilege for a performer to sing in their home town. It has a nice feeling and nice resonance about it," added Daryl.
