Shania Twain back on tour this summer, says it’s her last-ever

Friday, March 13th, 2015

Following a two-year residency in Las Vegas and ten year absence from the touring scene, Shania Twain is getting primed for one last go-around. The Canadian country star and best-selling female country artist of all time will be touring North America this summer, beginning June 5 in Seattle, WA.

Not surprisingly, the Rock This Country tour is heavy with Canadian dates and many stops will feature two shows. Twain is looking to “go out with a bang”, and finish off her multi-platinum career in memorable fashion.

Tickets to Shania Twain’s tour are now on sale on ShowTimeTickets.com.

Mumford & Sons, Drake and Sam Smith to headline Squamish Valley Music Festival

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Gear up, Squamish – some big names are coming to town this summer!

The Squamish Valley Music Festival is rapidly making a name for itself as a marquee date for music fans, and 2015 welcomes the likes of British soul star Sam Smith, folk rockers Mumford and Sons, and Canadian rapper Drake. The three-day festival will take over the Logger Sports Grounds on August 7, 8 and 9. Tickets go on sale next week.

Squamish will mark the third time in less than a year that Sam Smith will perform in the Vancouver area. Within such a short time period and no new album set for release, fans will likely be treated to Smith’s existing (albeit very good) material that has rocketed him to stardom in the past year.

Conversely, those lining up to see Drake will get treated to new material on his recently-released album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, which appeared on iTunes on February 13.
