Johnny Reid will present a rare, intimate concert in St. John’s Dec. 19, when he brings “A Christmas Gift to You” to Cochrane Street Church.

Reid’s management says the show was organized because the Scottish-born, Canada-raised singer/songwriter was receiving an overwhelming number of requests to come back to St. John’s, but was faced with winter travel and venue logistics.

“(He) knew he needed to find a way to give back to the community and show appreciation for his strong legion of fans that live on the Rock,” his management team said in a media release.

The show will be a stripped-down version of Reid’s current touring show, and admission will require a ticket plus one non-perishable food item, which will be given to Bridges to Hope.

Tickets are $25 (plus a $4 charge for credit card payments), and are limited to two per person. They go on sale this Saturday at 9 a.m. at Cochrane Street United Church. A limited number of tickets will be available online at johnnyreid.com.

“I could think of no better way to end a cross-Canada Christmas tour than by giving back to the good people of Newfoundland, and in turn helping those less fortunate,” Reid said in the release.

Organizations: United Church

Geographic location: St. John's, Canada, Cochrane Street Newfoundland

    Johnny Reid is in a league of his own. Months ago he promised fans if there was any way possible to bring the Christmas show to NL he would do it. And he's delivering...at risk that weather conditions may hamper his own family Christmas plans. That's why he is #1 in Canada and #1 in our hearts. #AChristmasGifttoYou...in stores now! Best Christmas album out there.
