An all-star lineup takes the stage at the Greek to perform the futuristic, synth-heavy electronic music of elusive Nigerian artist William Onyeabor. Onyeabor self-released eight nearly impossible-to-find albums between 1978 and 1985 in Nigeria, but after becoming a born-again Christian turned his back on his work and refused to speak about it for nearly three decades. Last year, after a five-year odyssey to track down Onyeabor and secure his permission to release his music, the Luaka Bop label issued World Psychedelic Classics 5: Who Is William Onyeabor? The album was named one of Time magazine's top ten albums of the year and Pitchfork's Best Reissue of the Year 2013. Even now, after the album's enormous success, the artist's life story remains a mystery -- and he seems content to keep it that way. The show features David Byrne, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), the legendary Lijadu Sisters of Nigeria in their first live performance in 30 years, Money Mark, Joshua Redman and Sinkane. The evening begins with a DJ set by special guest Wooden Wisdom (Elijah Wood & Zach Cowie). Learn More

It is a good show, but not a great show. I didn't like the songs selection that much, some of the the songs are just the revival of other singers'. The Choreography was mediocre and the performance was kind of dull, only with the exception to the lovely violinist, she is cute, energetic and full of movements. I didn't expect it to be that cold at night, be sure to bring a coat if you are going at this season.
Following the smash success of four chart topping albums and PBS televisions specials, the new tour features many brand new heart stirring songs, plus all the classics you know and love. The Isle of Hope tour will dazzle the eye, enchant the ear and stimulate both the mind and the heart. Come join the girls of Celtic Woman — Chloe, Lisa, Orla, Lynn and Mairead — for a magical musical experience!
