What Canadian rock legends have sold millions of records, had a couple dozen hits, sold-out coliseums across Canada, received a Juno Award for Band of the Year and are what The Vancouver Sun called the “Canadian rock heroes of the first order … the best performing band in Canada.”?
Why it is Trooper of course. And while this may have been Trooper a decade or so ago, what made them what they were then is still there now: great performances and great pop songwriting.
Incredibly, more than one out of every forty Canadians owns a copy of Trooper’s 6x Platinum album, Hot Shots. The band has performed thousands of shows in virtually every city and town in Canada and are the first Canadian band to successfully tour from coast to coast in their home country. In America, they’ve backed up a who’s who of rock including; Aerosmith, BTO, AC/DC, Steppenwolf, Alice Cooper, ZZ Top, Fleetwood Mac, Jeff Beck, REO, Styx, and many others.
2000 marked the band’s 25th anniversary as top performers in the Canadian music industry. With a packed house at Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom, they reunited original group members with the Trooper of today for one incredible and memorable night of celebration.
As Trooper continues to sell out shows across the country, they often encounter fans from three different generations in the audience, proving that the band remains ageless.
Trooper has become a Canadian legend. They continue to perform their huge collection of hits with the vitality and sense of humor that has served them well on their steady march through the hills and valleys of Rock and Roll.
Don’t miss Trooper with special guests Shaun Verreaut and Connor McGuire and The Lives of Others at the Commodore Ballroom on October 3rd, 2009 (doors @ 8pm, show @ 9:30pm).
Tickets $34.50 (plus service charges) available at Live Nation online or by calling 604-280-4444.
