Holy smokes, I just noticed that the Joel Plaskett Emergency’s Canadian tour is just around the corner. Seems like just yesterday they were headed off to Australia!
Anyway, thought I’d just point out that fact for those of you thinking about going to the shows. And speaking of the shows, I’m getting advance ticket counts from across the country and, based on those, if you live in Ottawa, Toronto, Sudbury, Calgary or Vancouver – I’d suggest you make the effort to get your tickets sooner, rather than later, because those shows look like they’re definitely going to sell out.
For those of you on the East Coast, never fear; for sure there will be shows added in the summer for Atlantic Canada. As I write this, the lads are holed up in a secret location, learning the ins and outs of the new record. In case you missed it, Peter Elkas and his excellent band will be doing the opening act honours nationally. This will work out well because Pete will be joining the Emergency on stage to help in reproducing Ashtray Rock live properly.
