Collective Soul to play Memorial Centre in April
U.S. rockers Collective Soul will perform at Red Deer’s Memorial Centre on Wednesday, April 9.
The Georgia-based group, formed in 1992, is known for a slew of hits, including Shine, December, Where the River Flows, The World I Know, Gel, Smashing Young Man and Counting the Days.
The pop-rock band fronted by singer Ed Roland writes melodic tunes that are often laced with religious references and mystical imagery.
The group recorded its debut album Hints, Allegations and Things Left Unsaid in 1993. It was originally released on a small indie label in Atlanta, but after the track Shine gained attention, thanks to college radio play, Collective Soul was signed to Atlantic Records, and the album was re-released with a wider distribution.
Collective Soul, now consisting of Roland and musicians Dean Roland, Joel Kosche and Will Turpin, has gone on to release seven other recordings.
Tickets to the Red Deer concert go on sale at 10 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31, from the Black Knight Ticket Centre. They will cost $48.95 to $59.95.
