All six shows are now sold out!

“I miss my fans, and today they let me know in the most powerful way that the feeling is mutual,” Kissel chuckled. “Things are tough in Alberta, but we’re a province of trailblazers, innovators and fighters and that is why it was so important for me to make these shows happen in my home province. I cannot wait to step out onto that stage again and do so six times over the weekend. But on a deeper level, getting a chance to raise money and raise spirits for people in need is the most fulfilling part of it all.  Thank you, again, Alberta.  My heart is full”
