Irish vocal outfit Celtic Woman will not only return to North America this holiday season for its annual "Christmas Celebration Symphony Tour," but also release a second holiday album, "Home for Christmas."

The four-piece all-female group will finish up its first South African leg and take a two-month break before kicking off the holiday trek Dec. 1 in Foxwoods, CT. The Christmas-focused round of shows features a dozen cities before wrapping up Dec. 22 in Huntsville, AL.

Celtic Woman will take to the U.S. tour trail a second time beginning in late February and crisscrossing the nation for three-and-a-half months, concluding June 11 in Omaha, NE.
