This Friday’s Late Late Show will be packed with world-class musical talent with Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, Glen Hansard, Imelda May and Markéta Irglová all set to perform.
Andrea Bocelli and his children Matteo and Virginia will be in the studio to talk about family life, their faith, the magic of Christmas, their multi-generational talent and they will sing two songs from their new festive album A Family Christmas.
As part of the new Sky Arts program Christmas in Ireland with Imelda May and Friends, Imelda May and Glen Hansard will be speaking about the annual Grafton Street busk for the Simon community and how this year they are bringing a taste of it to a wider audience. Hansard recently welcomed a new member to his family and will share his experiences of fatherhood and how it has changed him. In the meantime, Imelda May will be coming home to acting, touring and Christmas.
Glen and Imelda will team up to perform two special duets, including their rendition of the classic Fairytale of New York.
Hansard will also reunite with his Once co-star Markéta Irglová to perform her Oscar-winning song Falling Slowly 15 years after its release.
The celebrations continue with Irish comedian, author and actor Seán Burke presenting a special Christmas carol on The Late Late Show.
Meanwhile, Tik Tok sensation and new Blue Peter host Joel M Ryan will join the audience in bringing a mix of magic and illusion.
