Grant Canyon – No Tweed Too Tight – Main Stage Series @ Astor Theatre
Mar 16 @ 7:30 pm

No Tweed Too Tight is a fast-paced, raunchy, one man physical theatre comedy with enough twists and turns to keep you as confused as it’s hero Grant Canyon!

The year is 1981. Grant Canyon is a perpetually inebriated insurance investigator. In his few coherent moments he leaves a wake of dead bodies, satisfied ladies, and empty bottles as he staggers toward a shocking and fiery conclusion.
When Grant Canyon is on the case, the world is a dangerous place!

The Stampeders – Tickets on sale Nov.30 @ Astor Theatre
Apr 7 @ 7:30 pm

THE STAMPEDERS ~ LIVE IN CONCERT

Coming To Select Atlantic Canadian Theatres

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30TH!

‘They’re on their way, to the city lights’ … and, 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, Devil You, Monday Morning Choo Choo, Minstrel Gypsy, Hit the Road Jack /and, of course, the quintessential Canadian – and Hall of Fame – song, /Sweet City Woman!/ 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 … By the time The Stampeders get to the first chorus of the first song, everyone will be singing along.

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… ‘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) and go ON SALE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30TH @ 11:00am and are available from the box offices listed below.

Séan McCann – Live in Concert @ Astor Theatre
Apr 26 @ 7:30 pm

Séan McCann bought his first guitar in 1989 which he affectionately calls “Old Brown”. Old Brown has been around. He was there for the first song Séan ever wrote. He was there as Séan founded Great Big Sea, the acclaimed and multi-million album selling band that would change his life. He was there to hold Séan up many a night as he struggled with addiction, and he has been there to help guide Séan out of the darkness with music as his medicine. Today, Séan continues to cross this country with Old Brown by his side, sharing his truth with people face to face and using music to heal as a speaker and mental health and recovery advocate.
