According to a news release posted April l6 at BlueRodeo.com, the 2012 Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductees will perform June 6 in Sunderland, ON at Sunderland Arena. Pre-sales for the show are available now at Tour.BlueRodeo.com.
The multi-Juno winners will also play a couple of outdoor gigs on July 5 at Sun Peaks Village in Sun Peaks, BC as part of their summer concert series, as well as a headline slot on July 19 at Wild Mountain Music Festival in Hinton, AB. The Wild Mountain line up will also include Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downey's solo project with The Sadies, dubbed The Conquering Sun, along with Lee Harvey Osmond, Marco Calliari and Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra among others.
