54-40 swings into Mission for one night only next Thursday

Band 54-40 plays at Clarke next Thursday

Part of the 30-year anniversary tour includes Mission

One of the most popular music groups to emerge from the Canadian cultural landscape, 54-40 is celebrating its 30-year anniversary with a tour that lands in Mission April 5.

The band has an unbelievable catalogue of hit songs, including She-La, Assoholic, Baby Ran, I Go Blind and Ocean Pearl.

Led by Neil Osborne, 54-40 has carved out a legacy of gold and platinum albums and an outstanding reputation for their live performances.

The secret to their longevity is their ability to redefine and reinvent themselves, picking up new young fans along the journey.

From their first gig on New Year’s Eve 1981 at the Smilin’ Buddha Cabaret, 54-40 has deep roots in Vancouver.

They were immersed in the MuchMusic video craze of the 1990s and embraced the growing digital worlds of CDs, MP3s, and websites.

54-40 is the winner of the Western Canadian Music Awards Hall Of Fame Award (2011) along with numerous other awards, and own almost a dozen Top-10 hit singles.

The band plays next Thursday, April 5 at the Clarke Theatre. Tickets are $42.50 through Ticketmaster by phone 1-885-985-5000 or online at www.ticketmaster.ca.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30.
