I had the pleasure of being at the Centre in the Square last night in Kitchener to see one of my favourite live performers, Johnny Reid on his Revival LIVE tour. Now, if you’ve never seen Johnny Reid live and someone invites you to see him, don’t pass up the opportunity.
I think that Johnny Reid is truly Canada’s best kept secret. He has been making music and touring for the last 23 years, has sold more than 2-million albums and is an electrifying performer who really knows how to have the audience eat out of his hand.
On this particular tour, however, Johnny was sharing the stage with Alan Frew and legendary Canadian pop-rock band Glass Tiger. It was impossible to turn on your radio in the mid 80s and early-90s in this country and NOT here a Glass Tiger song. The band won 3 Juno awards in 1986 and despite taking a hiatus in 1993, the band has been touring for 31 years and now has a new album!
The new album, entitled “31” was produced by Johnny Reid and, is more than just another greatest hits album. It’s a re-imagining of the songs that were on the radio that we all loved, re-recorded…re-mixed… and being re-released for 2018!
Remember this one? (ya, sorry about the video quality… I was way up in the balcony!)
“31” is available NOW and contains re-recordings of all your favourite Glass Tiger songs including duets and with great performers like Alan Doyle, Susan Aglukark, Julian Lennon and a brand new song with Johnny Reid!
The band will be continue to be on the Johnny Reid tour until the end of April and then will start their own headlining tour, including a show at Toronto’s Massey Hall! Get tickets here!
If you are a product of the 80s and a fan of Canadian music, “31” is a must-add to your collection. You can get it in your favourite online music store, or even on an acutal CD!
