Yes, you probably have heard it: The legendary Kelly Family is going on tour again in 2018. After they have announced last year three concerts for their “surprising” comeback, they’ll go on an extensive arena tour afterwards.
After the first three concerts in Dortmund’s Westfalenhalle from 19 – 21 May 2017, they’ll tour in 2018 through Germany and will also stop in Austria and Switzerland. For their “We Got Love Tour” there’ll be even an album, which will be released on 24th March 2017. It will contain new Versions of old songs as well as some new pieces.
What great news for fans like me! Since 1996 I follow the family band, had walls full of posters, went to concert inland and abroad, and still have all CDs and fan Merchandise at home. After I had missed the last tour in 2006/2007 because of my aupair year, I will finally see the family band live again.
For outsider it might be a total surprising comeback, but to us fan it kept showing more often the last years, that the siblings might soon come together again. Officially the band never broke up, but just backed out and dedicated themselves to separate projects. The last years members kept performing again together more frequently.
Unfortunately not all the siblings will be part of: Patricia, Joey, Kathy, Jimmy, John and Angelo Kelly will be performing their hits to the audience. The former heartthrob and Musical head of the Family, Paddy, as well as power woman Maite will neither be part of the comeback concerts in 2017, nor take part in the tour. But apparently we can look forward to some other surprises and guests.

If there will be added even more concerts in other countries, we will see. There are many fans e.g. from the Netherlands and Poland, who’d love to see a concert nearby.
