The rock band Big Wreck promises to put on a big, hit-heavy concert at the Memorial Centre in Red Deer on Sept. 22.

Albatross, The Oaf (My Luck is Wasted), Blown Wide Open, Wolves, and A Million Days are some of the Top 10 singles the band has released since forming in Boston in 1994, then reforming again in 2010 after a break up during which singer Ian Thornley started a successful solo band.

Thornley, a Canadian, is now reunited with Brian Doherty, an original member of Big Wreck. The two are performing with Paulo Neta, Dave McMillan and Chuck Keeping.

Ghosts, the band’s most recent album, was released earlier this month and the title track is already climbing the charts.

Tickets for the Red Deer concert are $39.99 and go on sale at 11 a.m. on Friday, June 20, from the Black Knight Ticket Centre.
