I REALLY love this idea! But I'd have to make mine a little different.... (only using the girls that were present on the tour)

Act I (gold dresses)
1. The Sky And The Dawn And The Sun - All
2. Newgrange - Eabha
3. The Butterfly - Mairead N
4. Orinoco Flow - Susan, Alex, Lynn (Alex on Mairead C's part and Lynn on her part)
5. Scarlett Ribbons - Mairead C
6. She Moved Through The Fair - Meav
7. Here To Stay - Susan
8. Over The Rinbow - Meav, Alex, Susan, Eabha (Meav on her part, Alex on Hayley/Lisa's, Susan on Chloe's, Eabha on Orla's)
9. After Hours
10. Teir Abhaile Riu - Susan, Lynn, Mairead C, Mairead N (all on their Tour parts)

Act II (again, the dark blue and black colors from the current tour)
1. At The Ceili - Alex, Eabha, Meav, and Mairead N (Alex taking Lisa's part, Eabha on Orla's, Meav on hers)
2. My Lagan Love - Lynn
3. I Dreamed A Dream/Circle Of Life - Alex, Susan, Mairead C (Alex taking over Lisa K's part, Susan on Chloe's, Mairead C on Lisa L's part)
4. The Last Rose Of Summer - Lynn and Meav (Lynn on Hayley's part, Meav on hers)
5. The Lost Rose Fantasia - Mairead N
6. Nella Fantasia - Mairead C (in her shimmering black dress)
7. My Heart Was Home Again - Alex
8. Somewhere - Meav, Mairead C, Alex, Eabha (Meav on her part, Mairead C on Lisa's, Alex on Chloe's, and Eabha on Orla's)
9. Caledonia - Susan
10.Ray's Bodhran Solo/Nil S'en La - Susan, Eabha, Mairead C, Mairead N (on their current Tour parts)

Act III (the gorgeous pastel colored dresses)
1. Mo Ghile Mear - Meav, Alex, Lynn, Susan, Mairead C, Mairead N (Meav on her opening lines, Alex on Orla's lines, Lynn on Hayley's, Susan on Lisa's, Mairead C on Chloe's)
2. The New Ground/Isle Of Hope, Isle Of Tears - Eabha
3.  Cailín Alainn/Dúlaman - Meav
4. Danny Boy - Susan, Lynn, Mairead C, Mairead N (on their Tour parts)
5. Amazing Grace - Susan, Alex, Meav (Susan on her part, Alex on Chloe's, Meav on Lisa L's)
6. Scarborough Fair - Lynn
7. Walking The Night/The World Falls Away - Lynn, Alex, Susan, Mairead C (Lynn and Alex on their old parts, Susan on Lisa K's, and Mairead C on Chloe's)
8. Sí Do Mhaimeo Í - Meav, Eabha, Mairead N (Meav on Mairead C's part and Eabha on her part)
9. The Voice - Alex and Mairead N
10. Granuaile's Dance - Mairead N
11. You Raise Me Up - All (the SFTH version)
12. The Parting Glass - All
13. Ceili Playout


I know I added some songs and changed some stuff, but it's my dream concert so I'll do what I want! Each vocalist gets 2 solos whilst Mairead Nesbitt (the only founding member remaining) gets 3. Also, I know it's basically sacrilege to have any lineup but the original vocalists do Somewhere, but I REALLY love that song (it's my favorite a cappella number) and I personally would've preferred that one to Rainbow on the Anniversary Tour. Especially considering Meav, Lynn, and even Mairead C could've hit Meav's super high notes!

Also, Eabha seemed to get a little less love than the others, but that's mostly because I haven't really heard her harmonize with the girls well except for the snippets on YouTube. No disrespect intended Eabha!

Tiffany!!! I LOVE your idea of Goodnight My Angel (I tend to forget that song seeing as it's not at all one of my favorites) but I'd change the lineup...

I never understood the SFTH lineup choices for that song. I always felt Alex should've had Lynn's part seeing as she and Lisa K were the 2 mothers of the group. Chloe I understood a bit because she even said herself that it was a song her mom sang to her and she suggested it to David.

So! I'd put Meav on Lynn's old part, Alex on Lisa K's, and Mairead C on Chloe's. Then, on the part where they all sing together, have Alex and Meav come to either side of Mairead, and they'd end the song all holding hands.  Smiley

Mattycakes, -As I agree with 100% everything you mentioned, I love Lynn for her voice, it's so heavenly in that song.
Lynn being in that song is perfect because it show's any person can sing goodnight to a young one, it doesn't have to be theirs, it could be
a niece, a nephew, cousin, pal.etc. The part "Someday a Child May Cry and If you sing this Lullaby" it's wishing someday for us like Lynn
and Chloe.

I would add Alex as full group song, Alex can take some addition parts from Lynn such as "And like a Bird out on the Ocean"
Holding the hands part I would probably faint on tour with Meav and Alex with MC.  Shocked!
