Tim Hicks Live at CN Centre
Thursday November 29, 2018  |  7:30 PM
CN Centre, 2817 Ospika Blvd

Apple Music Fans’ Choice Award nominee and multiplatinum, award winning entertainer Tim Hicks announced today that he will turn up the heat this winter on his national headlining Get Loud Tour, which hits Prince George November 29.
Tickets start at $39.50 plus service charges and fees.

Hicks along with special guests Tebey, Madeline Merlo (in the East), Andrew Hyatt (in the West), and Washboard Union (Toronto only), will take the energy-charged tour to 16+ cities across the country with additional dates in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick to be announced soon.

Country music’s blue collar everyman, building from local acclaim to a nationally recognized name, Hicks continues to lead the way, expanding the sound and style that helped define today’s country music. The platinum selling entertainer is a “true star on the Canadian country music scene” (GoBe Weekly), “proving he knows how to tailor his songs to his ever-expanding audience” on his most recent album NEW TATTOO.

The longevity of Hicks career continues to reach new heights with two platinum and six golf certified singles in addition to a gold album and twelve Top 10 radio hits garnering close to 1.3 billion audience impressions. The first recipient of the Nielsen Compass Award at the 2018 Country Music Association of Ontario awards show, an honour that recognizes an artist for the most total content plays including streams, single and album sales as well as total social media following, Hicks commemorates his wide-open sound as one of the defining influences on  today’s Country Music with his first nomination for the Apple Music Fans’ Choice category at the 2018 CCMA Awards.

Always akin to his fans, Hicks released his fourth studio album, New Tattoo, last month. His first studio release since 2016’s Shake These Walls, which debuted as the No.1 Canadian Country Album on the Nielsen Soundscan Top Country Albums Chart upon release – New Tattoo is a fiercely confident collection of 12 tracks co-written by Hicks and produced by Jeff Coplan with the exception of “LOUD” (produced by Todd Clark), and “Gettin’ To Me” (produced by Jeff Coplan and David ‘Dwave’ Thomson), that catapult between traditional country grooves, stadium-sized rock riffs and blue collar country. First single “LOUD”, which was licensed by the NHL in North America, was the #1 most added song at Canadian radio (all formats), its first week of release, and continues to climb the radio charts with over 2 million streams to date.

Tim Hicks Fan Club pre-sale begins Tuesday, July 17 at 10 a.m. local time, followed by a general pre-sale on Wednesday, July 18 at 10 a.m. local time and public on sale Thursday, July 19  at 10 a.m. at www.ticketsnorth.ca For the “Get Loud Tour” Hicks has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket will go to Unison Fund and their work providing counseling and emergency relief services to the Canadian music community www.unisonfund.ca.
