“Coming back to Canada this summer is our way to thank our fans and make sure everyone who has supported us through the years has a chance to see us live again,” said the band’s frontman Dan McCafferty.

Nazareth features two original members, vocalist McCafferty and bassist Pete Agnew, as well as Agnew’s son, Lee Agnew, on drums and Jimmy Murrison on guitar. Tickets are $44 from the North Hill Inn.Doors open at 7 p.m. and the opening band is Flying Colors.
