Blue Rodeo to Play Quebec City January 22

Blue Rodeo will be bringing its unique brand of Canadian folk rock to the stage at La Suite, 1018 Rue St-Jean, in the old city Friday, January 22 at 9 p.m., as part of the group's extensive cross country tour that will continue into the spring.

Since the release of their debut album Outskirts in March 1987, Blue Rodeo has established itself as one of the premiere bands in Canadian music history. Their twelfth studio album, The Things We Left Behind, was released in November on Warner Music in Canada and TeleSoul Records in the US.

Over the course of its career, Blue Rodeo has released 12 studio albums, two live albums, a greatest hits collection and an award-winning DVD, selling in excess of four million copies around the world.

Original members Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor met in high school and became great friends. After university, when all their other friends were starting to get jobs, they decided to form a band and started to play music more often.
They played together in a number of different bands before forming Blue Rodeo in the mid-eighties.

In September, they became the fifth band be honoured with a star on Canada's Walk of Fame in Toronto.

Blue Rodeo is the band appearing at the end of the 1990 film "Postcards from the Edge."

The song "Bad Timing" is played towards the end of a season finale of the hit television show "Corner Gas."
The song "Try" is played in the background of the bar in the film "Navy Seals."

On Canada Day 2008, Blue Rodeo played on Parliament Hill. The band closed the show before the commencement of the fireworks and was joined on stage by several other artists to perform "Lost Together."

On November 28, the band performed at half-time of the 97th Grey Cup.

An amazing T.O. band (that easily fills Massey Hall three nights running); how lucky we are to have them here again! Unplugged this time, looking forward to a great show!
