Venue: Molson Theatre
|In celebration of his 40 plus years of touring Canada, the incomparable Charley Pride returns to Canada for select concerts in Canada in the summer of 2009. |
The June/July tour will visit Edmonton, Saskatoon, Dawson Creek, Penticton, Sault Ste. Marie, Hamilton, Peterborough, Ottawa, Yarmouth, Halifax, and St. John's. Tickets for Saturday, July 18th show at Mile One Centre go on sale Saturday, October 25th.
With an amazing 36, #1 singles to his credit, and album sales in excess of 70 million, Charley Pride concerts are back-to-back hits including 'Crystal Chandelier', 'All I Have to Offer You is Me', 'Does My Ring Hurt Your Finger', 'Kiss An Angel Good Morning' and 'Kaw-Liga' to mention just a few.
In 2007 the legendary country music star released 'Pride and Joy' - a collection of gospel music, featuring 'God's Colouring Book', with Dolly Parton, 'Amazing Grace', 'Just A Closer Walk With Thee' and 'Family Bible' featuring Willie Nelson. Also included is 'Jesus, It's Me Again', penned by Canadian Dick Damron.
Pride has played to sold-out crowds from coast-to-coast throughout his distinguished career, garnering rave reviews city after city. His rich baritone voice and engaging stage presence have made him a concert favourite.
A proud member of the Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame, a Grammy and Country Music Award winner, Charley Pride's music is timeless and treasured. While it is an over-used phrase, the Texas born artist truly embodies the phrase 'living legend' - no one before him or since has made his or her mark, quite like Charley Pride.
Country's pride and joy on tour in Canada next summer!
