Loreena McKennitt - Celtic Footprints
Tour in 2012

 
End October 2011 it was announced "that Loreena will once again be taking her music on the road when she embarks on the Loreena McKennitt Celtic Footprints Tour 2012, from mid March to end April.

Tour dates were at one time listed on the official website; see this list at my site.

No doubt the concert will feature songs from the most recent album The wind that shakes the barley, released in 2010.

Attending the concert

Unfortunately I'm not able to go to either of the concerts
in The Netherlands, the country where I live.

 
On 1 March 2012 Loreena announced a second tour: A Midsummer Night's Tour, for July 2012.

 

Set list of the concert

The following is the set list of the concert in Brussels, Belgium,
on 7 April; I guess it was the same for all concerts.
