Classic Canadian bands Trooper and Chilliwack are set to rock Red Deer’s Centrium with their nostalgic, sold-gold hits.
Trooper will demonstrate why it’s one of this country’s top-selling bands of all time on when its five members take the stage on March 3.
The Juno Award-winning group has a legacy of tunes that are still played on rock radio today. They include Raise a Little Hell, Boys in the Bright White Sport Car, Janine, General Hand Grenade, Two for the Show, We’re Here for a Good Time (Not a Long Time), Pretty Lady and many others.
Award-winning, gold and platinum-selling band Chilliwack released 12 albums over a 15-year period in the 1970s and ’80s, after arising out the psychedelia movement in 1969.
Among the band’s Canadian and international hits are Lonesome Mary, Fly at Night, California Girl, My Girl (gone gone gone) and Whatcha Gonna Do.
Westerner Park CEO Mike Olesen is excited to welcome “Canadian rock-royalty” to Red Deer.
“Both of these bands are quintessential to Canadian music,” said Olesen. “It’s a great way to kick off what we know will be an incredible year of entertainment here at Westerner Park.”
