Two celebrated Canadian rock musicians and songwriters are reuniting for the first time over 10 years for a cross-Canada tour this summer.
Together Again, Live in Concert, reunites The Guess Who front men Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings for a 17-date tour that includes an appearance at Mile One Centre on July 17.
Other Atlantic Canadian dates include Moncton on July 14, Halifax on July 15 and Summerside, P.E.I. on July 19.
Starting Friday, February 28, tickets for the St. John’s show will be available at the Mile One Centre Box Office (50 New Gower St.), by calling (709) 576-7657 or online at mileonecentre.com, evenko.ca and livenation.com. Ticket prices were not available.
To coincide with the reunion tour, Sony Music Canada will release a limited-edition Bachman-Cummings box set in June, which will include five Guess Who albums released from 1969 to 1971 period, alongside material from both Bachman Turner Overdrive and Burton Cummings. The set will also include an expanded booklet of rare and never published publicity, studio, and master tape photographs as well as detailed label copy and notes.
"We’re the two guys who wrote and sang these songs and I think people know that and want to hear the real thing,” Burton Cummings stated in a release. “Bachman – Cummings are out there delivering that. Not all artists are lucky enough to have that kind of staying power."
Added Bachman, “We are having more fun now. There is a lot of love and respect for each other. Working together with Burton again musically is like riding a bike, easy and fun, but with everyone clapping along as we do it.”
