Today some people in Armagh were having a Christmas day. Literally. Thirty one Libera boys were performing a Christmas concert tonight. The show was filmed for a DVD (yay!) which we'll get later this Christmas, hopefully. Oh, did I mention that some older boys like Tiarnan, Alex, Sam, and Josh are also singing in their white robes? Well, Merry Christmas, people!

Explanation about the concert. (Courtesy of Lauren)

OK, to be honest, I'm emotionally dying inside because once again I missed another special concert. Also here I thought Josh was already retired but tonight he's back to the group as the singer and again I missed the chance to see him live in his white robe! Why oh why. Sigh.

BUT, on the bright side, they'll make it into a DVD which is great for people like me who couldn't make it. Aaahh...I really really can't wait for this special DVD to be released. I've been longing for it since forever. Can Christmas come faster?! Thank you Lauren for keeping us posted. Go check out some wonderful recaps of the concert on Mini Angels and LDF.

  1. OMG! I'm so excited about the DVD! So many of my favorite songs (especially Danny Boy)! Never before has so much been waiting for Christmas. lol
    Thanks for the review!

    1. Oh I've been dying to hear their version of Danny Boy since they brought it into the Spring Tour setlist. Now can we just skip all these other months and go straight to Christmas? Lol. People say if nothing goes wrong, the DVD will be ready before Christmas (maybe in November)!
