Friday January 12, 2024 to Friday January 12
Legendary alt-country rockers, Blue Rodeo, will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their massively successful album Five Days In July with An Evening with Blue Rodeo on Friday, January 12 at 8pm.
Fans can look forward to seeing the band hit the stage at Caesars Windsor for songs from the six-time platinum classic record, Five Days in July, while also enjoying favourites from over the years. “We have a rare opportunity to revisit Five Days In July in its entirety,” says Blue Rodeo’s Jim Cuddy. “This being the record’s 30th birthday, we thought we would do a few special shows and play the record front to back. Should be fun!” The album includes chart-toppers like “Hasn’t Hit Me Yet,” “Bad Timing,” and “5 Days in May.”
Blue Rodeo emerged in the early 1980s as a countrified rock band in the era of hair metal and glossy pop. Despite sticking out like a sore thumb (or maybe because of it), their single “Try” became omnipresent on radio across Canada and set in motion a three-decade-long career of headlining every club, theatre, and arena in Canada. In 1993, when grunge rock was squeezing commercial rock off the radio, they recorded their most acoustic album, Five Days In July, and scored their biggest hit selling over a half million copies of that one record alone.
In the 35 years since forming, Blue Rodeo has sold over 4 million albums, received dozens of JUNO Award nominations and wins, played over 2,000 shows, been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, received a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, been named to the Order of Canada and have been honoured with the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award.
Blue Rodeo’s unique brand of Canadian country rock has been featured over 16 studio albums, with greatest hits including “Try,” “Diamond Mine,” “Til I Am Myself Again,” “Lost Together,” and more.
