Blue Rodeo w/ Special Guests The Sky Diggers

Show: 7:30 pm
The definition of a rebel is someone who goes against the grain. Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead! For nearly thirty years, Blue Rodeo has taken the road less traveled – and succeeded far beyond anyone’s expectations. The band emerged in the early 80’s as a countrified rock band in the era of hair metal and glossy pop. Despite sticking out like a sore thumb (or maybe because of it), their single “Try” became omnipresent on radio across Canada and set in motion a three decade long career of headlining every club, theatre and hockey arena in Canada. In 1993, when grunge rock was squeezing commercial rock off the radio, they recorded their quietest album, Five Days In July, and scored their biggest hit selling over a half million copies of that one record alone. And now, in the digital age, while everyone else is think of ways to sell single songs through the internet or snippets of songs on cell phones, Blue Rodeo has recorded a double album designed specifically to be enjoyed on vinyl. Due for release on November 10, The Things We Left Behind, is the real deal. Double gate-fold sleeve, 12 x 12 cover and two records, four distinct sides programmed to take the listener on a trip.
Blue Rodeo has delivered summer anthems and highway tunes, wedding songs and prom themes. They’ve represented Canada musically at World Fairs and the Olympics, on late-night talk shows and in big Hollywood pictures. You’ve heard them at hockey games and playing at the cottage down by the lake and yet, for all their success, for each listener they are confidantes. Close friends who tell important truths. Good buddies who get you smiling again.
