Doc Walker brings concert to Mission

Country group performs on Feb. 18, four days later Queen Nation is set to rock the Clarke Theatre

There are two concerts coming to the Clarke Theatre in February that music lovers won’t want to miss.

On Feb. 18, Doc Walker – Acoustic Songs and Stories From the Heartland takes place in the Mission-based theatre.

Four days later, on Feb. 22, Queen Nation – A Tribute To The Music Of Queen is set to rock the Clarke.

Both shows are presented by Rock.It Boy Entertainment.

Country legends Doc Walker released their ninth studio album “Weathervane” in 2017.

“Weathervane is, to me, a reflection of the amazingly crazy life I’ve lived. I’ve seen Canada from coast to coast many times staring out the windows of vans, old buses, new buses, trains and planes, and every time I’m shocked by the beauty of our country, but my heart has always been in the prairies,” saids lead singer, Chris Thorsteinson.

The first single, Heart of the Heartland, pays homage to small town pride across the country. The song was inspired by hometown pride, fond memories of youth and continuing to find new inspiration in one’s roots, in this case, Portage la Prairie, Manitoba and Winnipeg, which has long been home for bandmates Dave Wasyliw and Chris Thorsteinson.

With more than 20 Top 10 singles in total, Doc Walker is one of the most recognized Canadian country acts of the past two decades.

The show takes place Monday, Feb. 18 at the Clarke Theatre, 33700 Prentis Ave. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the music starts at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $45 and are available at all Ticketmaster locations.
