April 1, 2015, Liverpool, NS: One of Canada's best known musical groups is coming to Liverpool, NS this summer. An evening with legendary Canadian rockers, Blue Rodeo will take place on Friday, July 10, 2015 at Queens Place Emera Centre, Liverpool, Nova Scotia. Showtime is 9:00 p.m.
"We are excited that Blue Rodeo will be performing at Queens Place Emera Centre, and hope to see fans from across the province enjoying the music that has made them international recording stars," said Christopher Clarke, Mayor of the Region of Queens Municipality. "Queens Place Emera Centre has been described as one of the best entertainment venues outside Metro and we look forward to having Blue Rodeo appear on our stage."
The list of hits over the decades has been long. Songs such as "Try", "Lost Together", "Rose Coloured Glasses" and "Til I am Myself Again" have influenced and touched Canadians over the years. The July 10th concert is Blue Rodeo's only Nova Scotia stop on their Atlantic Canadian swing.
"We always love coming to Nova Scotia. Lots of friends and wonderful musical audiences," said Jim Cuddy, Blue Rodeo's lead vocalist. "This will be our first time in Liverpool, and we are excited to come and play. And hopefully the snow will be gone by then!"
Blue Rodeo has been one of Canada's most successful bands, and is known for creating one of the most unique and influencing sounds in Canadian music. Since their first live gig 30 years ago and 13 studio albums later, this iconic band led by original members Jim Cuddy, Greg Keelor and Bazil Donovan, has sold more than 4 million records. Blue Rodeo has won 11 Juno Awards – five of which were for Best Band, played world tours, been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, boasts a star on Canada's Walk of Fame and Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor have received the Order of Canada. In May, 2014, the band accepted a Governor General's Performing Arts Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement, Canada's highest honour in performing arts.
