They're on their way, to the city lights’ ... and, the Charles Bailey Theatre in Trail for a Saturday night performance on June 18 that will everyone attending singing along after the first chorus.
The predominant Canadian Rock ‘n’ Roll band of the 1970s – The Stampeders – are bringing along all their classic hits — Wild Eyes, Carry Me, Oh My Lady and Devil You to name a few — kick off the BC tour in the Silver City on June 18th.
Tickets are available at the Charles Bailey Theatre Box Office at 250-368-9669 or online at this link.
Other hits during the concert include Monday Morning Choo Choo, Minstrel Gypsy, Hit the Road Jack and, of course, the quintessential Canadian – and Hall of Fame – song, Sweet City Woman.
There's a veritable soundtrack to a whole generation that will ‘carry you home’ — maybe not to Birmingham — but back to a time of tie-dyed t-shirts and elevator shoes, 15¢ coffee and homemade apple pie, dating and dreaming.
No seventies group represented Canada's musical identity to the world like The Stampeders.
A quick look at Canada's music scene from 1971 until 1976 confirms The Stampeders were truly the country's international musical ambassadors, touring more extensively in Canada and overseas than any other Canadian group during that time.
In 1977 the trio: Rich Dodson (lead guitar), Kim Berly (drums) and Ronnie King (bass) parted company but reunited, fittingly at the Calgary Stampede, 15 years later in 1992. Since then they’ve been recognized by SOCAN for their Lifetime Achievement, been inducted into the SOCAN Songwriters Hall of Fame on five occasions and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame for their 1971 seminal hit Sweet City Woman.
The enduring musical legacy of The Stampeders, celebrating 50 years... 'better catch a noon train, better get there for a rock 'n' rolling good time!’
Reserved seating tickets for The Stampeders are $66.50 (tax and facility fees included, service charges may apply) and are available from the box offices listed below.
Showtime is 7:30 p.m.
