So everyone who knows me on Facebook and Twitter, know that I am a huge Celtic Woman fan and 5 years ago Celtic Woman came to South Africa for Believe and they are back this year and I seriously can not wait...... Can anyone give me some advice for the meet and greets? I didn't get a chance last time to meet Susan and Mairead Nesbitt but this year I want to make it even more special. Has anyone taken the booklets from the inside of the DVD's to be signed?

Here's an article that talks about the Destiny Tour coming to South Africa:

I've never been to a meet and greet (yet) so I'm interested in the answer too.

At the US M&G, you don't get autographs.  You get a quick hi & handshake and a photo op with all 4 girls.

Hey dbbii, thanks for the information.

How recent is that? I'm curious because the definition of a meet and greet has changed a number of times over the years.

Thanks.

I think the Believe meet & greets was the last time they did autographs.

This looks odd.  Is there something we don't know?

U OAH!== Where is our Mairead Nesbitt?  

Is she just passing a rest by on the South Africa tour.. ?

Is this a call to Mairead's time with us coming to a close. 'O'

First I thought Rebecca was joining then I saw she looked similar to Lil' Lisa Lambe.

Does anybody on the Forum live in South Africa? I'm curious to see how Tara fits in?

Cool! Yeah, would love to know all about Tara, the crowd reaction, everything.

Hey, did you know Tara has her own forum too?
http://www.taramcneillforum.com

It's a great place to meet and chat with other Tara fans. The more the merrier.  Wink

I'm just very curious about how she'll perform. Not necessarily group numbers cuz those songs are a bit about the interactions between the girls. More so her solo songs. I wonder if she'll have the same energy as Mairead. I also wonder if she'll even have the same solos! Or perhaps she might do a bit of singing. And I'm also curious about her costumes. Mairead's were designed with her constant movements in mind. Don't know if Tara will do the same. Also, with all due respect to Tara, Mairead was a very small, petite woman. I don't think Tara could use her costumes.

Yeah, Synan will make her something new and beautiful, I imagine.

I prefer not to compare Tara to Mairead. Tara has her own style and I'm sure I'll love it. I'm a bit worried about how the rest of the audience will react (the part of audience that's knowledgable about Mairead but not CWazy enough to embrace a new style).

Her singing in group numbers I'm really curious about. I fully trust Meav and and Gavin though. They'll do whatever works best.

I'm also trying not to compare but it's tough considering how long we've seen Mairead. For many, myself included, she was the poster child for Celtic Woman.

I've no doubt that Tara is a fantastic musician. But in Celtic Woman's shows, and particularly in a show like Destiny where the fun songs are Mairead's, we need to see someone who's energetic and who can really get the audience to play along with the girls.

Older shows had some fast-paced (the original TAR, Nil, and At The Ceiling) or well-known songs (Circle Of Life) which appealed to the wider audience. Destiny has When You Go (the opening), Bean Phaidin, the violin solos, and TAR as the only fast songs. Two of those songs are primarily in Irish. Unless they change the setlist a bit or Tara is able to totally wow in unexpected ways, I worry how this show is going to compare.

So! Any info on South Africa and Tara? I'm just curious as to the setlist and whether or not Tara will sing or play harp!
