Celtic Thunder’s X Tour celebrates the 10th anniversary of the all-male Irish vocal ensemble with an eclectic mix of hit songs. Originally founded to promote music of Celtic heritage, Celtic Thunder has evolved to include poppy crowd pleasers mixed in with Irish ballads and other folk classics.

This year’s tour features famous folk tunes like “Toora, Loora, Lay” alongside chart-toppers like “I’m a Believer.” To really mix it up, they even cover “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” and, believe it or not, The Elder Scrolls V: “Skyrim’s Main Theme.”

Backed by a full band featuring violin, harp and penny whistle, the show is certain to include something to please everyone.

$39.50-69.50, Sat Dec. 1, 8pm, The Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com.
