Canadian arena rock at its finest, coming June 24

Corey Hart, Glass Tiger join forces for rock double-bill at Save-On Foods Memorial Centre

It was 35 years ago that “Sunglasses at Night” became a pop music mega-hit for Corey Hart, a video award-winning song that launched the Montreal-bred musician’s rock career.

Hart brings three decades worth of music together for one night at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre on June 24, when he shares a double billing with fellow 80s Canadian pop rockers Glass Tiger.

Hart’s follow-up album Boy in the Box and that recording’s Juno-winning single “Never Surrender” propelled him to international stardom and over 16 million records sold before he stepped away from his global touring and recording career in 1999 after the birth of his third daughter.

Hart continued to write songs for stars like Celine Dion while raising his family, and in 2014 returned to a sold-out show in his hometown arena for a show called One Night-Three Decades of Music and published his autobiography titled Chasing the Sun.

Voted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame this year, Hart’s releasing his first studio CD in two decades and touring with Glass Tiger.

That Newmarket, Ont.-based band launched their multi-million record selling career with 1986’s multi-Juno winning single “Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone),” the first of many big-selling records. After years of touring, the band went on hiatus from 1993-2005, regrouped in 2006, but suffered a set-back with lead singer Alan Frew’s stroke in 2015.

Frew and other original members of the band (Sam Reid, Al Connelly and Wayne Parker) play Victoria this month with drummer Chris McNeill who joined them in 2000. They’ve produced a new, acoustic and Celtic-influenced CD that includes songs by Julian Lennon, Alan Doyle and Susan Aglukark, but Glass Tiger will also be rocking old favourites from their early career triumphs.

Corey Hart and Glass Tiger … Get ready to rock!
