Concert announced for March 3 at Abbotsford Centre

Chart-topping, multi-platinum, award-winning singer-songwriter Johnny Reid has announced a stop at Abbotsford Centre as part of his 2018 “Revival” national tour.

Joining Reid at the performance on Saturday, March 3 at 7 p.m. will be his long-time big band The Soul Providers and a special appearance by the Grammy-nominated, Juno-award-winning group Glass Tiger.

The 44-date tour kicks of Feb. 26 and 27 in Sidney and includes several other stops in B.C. – Feb. 28 in Nanaimo, March 1 in Duncan, March 4 in Vancouver, March 5 in Kamloops, March 6 in Kelowna and March 8 in Prince George.

The tour celebrates the release of Reid’s latest album, Revival.

Reid’s career spans more than two decades and includes an extensive catalogue of hit songs, album sales totaling more than 1.5 million units, countless awards – including six Junos and 26 CCMAs – and multiple sold-out arena tours.

Reid is widely known for his lyrical honesty and musical ability, and Revival is his first collection of brand-new material since 2015’s What Love is All About.

The album was co-produced by Reid and Bob Ezrin (KISS, Alice Cooper).

Reid connects with audiences of all ages, thriving as a performer and songwriter sharing his stories and songs around the world with incalculable influence.

He is described as a “modern-day working-class hero with long-standing collective appeal.”
