Johnny Reid returning with leap year gig
Chart-topping, multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Johnny Reid has announced his 2016 ‘What Love Is All About’ national tour and due to overwhelming response keeps adding dates.
Cranbrook’s Western Financial Place is now on the list of the extensive outing that kicks off on February 1 in Vancouver and ends on April 4 in Cornerbrook, NL.
The JUNO and CCMA Award winning artist will headline multiple venues across the country in support of his new album What Love Is All About available now via Universal Music Canada.
Joining Reid on the What Love Is All About tour will be Warner Music Canada recording artist Aaron Goodvin and rock and roll, country soul-singer JJ Shiplett along with a special appearance by Queen of the East, Cape Breton fiddler and international performer Natalie MacMaster.
Reid’s Tartan Army Fan Club will have first access to pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday, December 8 via www.johnnyreid.com. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday, December 11.
Reid is partnering with Plus One on the tour, donating one dollar from each ticket purchased in participating markets in support of MusiCounts Band Aid Program, which keeps music classes alive in schools across Canada and puts instruments into the hands of children who need them most.
With an illustrious career spanning more than a decade, the JUNO Award winning singer has captured the hearts of fans and audiences around the world. A critically acclaimed vocalist, Reid is widely known for his lyrical honesty and musical ability, as demonstrated by his extensive catalogue of hit songs, album sales totalling over 1.1 million units, countless awards and multiple sold out national arena tours.
With the release of What Love Is All About, produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin, the highly praised and top-ranked Canadian star will add to his remarkable catalogue – his first brand new collection of material since 2012’s Fire It Up. The tour of the same name also played Cranbrook in April of that year and sold out completely. Some people have said to the promoters that Reid’s show was the best family-oriented show ever to come to the region.
Connecting with audiences of all ages, Reid thrives as a performer and songwriter sharing his stories and songs around the world with incalculable influence. He’s a modern day working class hero with long standing collective appeal – one that captures the hearts of many one song at a time.
Johnny Reid’s What Love is all About Tour on February 29 is a presentation of the Kootenay Concert Connection and Sakamoto Entertainment.
