Canadian rocker performing in Mission on May 10

Colin James will be bringing his acoustic tour to Mission on May 10.

Canadian musician Colin James will be up close and personal at the Clarke Theatre on May 10 when his acoustic tour comes to Mission.

James burst onto the music scene 25 years ago and is now a multi-platinum artist many times over.

He has written memorable hit songs, like Why’d You Lie, Five Long Years and Voodoo Thing, and has received numerous accolades and awards throughout his career.

James has been nominated for 15 Juno Awards, winning six of them. He has also earned 16 Maple Blues Awards and continues to sell out shows from coast to coast.

His last show at the Clarke Theatre was in 2006.

With his latest album, aptly titled Fifteen, James returns to his full-blooded rock roots, showcasing some of the best rock, blues, gospel, and pop songs he has ever written.

Chris Caddell will be the special guest on the Clarke stage, a sought-after musician whose music is inspired by the likes of Hendrix, Vaughn, and Clapton.

The concert is being presented by Rock.It Boy Entertainment.

Tickets for the event are $42.50 (plus service charge and facility fee) each, and are available at Ticketmasters, ticketmaster.ca.

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

The Clarke Theatre is located at 33700 Prentis Ave.
