True North Sports + Entertainment (TNSE) presents two GRAMMY award winning legends as Blues icon Jonny Lang and Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductee Mavis Staples will perform at the Burton Cummings Theatre, October 3.
The co-headliners will bring all their hits to the stage for one night only. Tickets start at $29.50 plus fees and will go on sale to the public, 10 a.m., April 20 through ticketmaster.ca.
Since the release of his debut album, Lang has built a reputation as one of the best live performers and guitarists of his generation. The path Lang has been on has brought him the opportunity to support or perform with some of the most respected legends in music. He has shared the stage with everyone from The Rolling Stones, B.B. King, Aerosmith and Buddy Guy, who he continues to tour with today.
At the beginning of her eighth decade of singing truth, Staples has delivered If All I Was Was Black (ANTI- Records), ten songs about America today, where the present is filled with ghosts of the past. “Nothing has changed,” Mavis said in early August, just days before the world watched neo-Nazis march with swastika flags in Charlottesville, Virginia, as a young woman was murdered. “We are still in it.”
