Canada’s favourite shaggy Saskatchewan rockers The Sheepdogs have announced a co-headlining show at Echo Beach. On September 20, they’ll be taking the stage alongside Shakey Graves marking a record-breaking third time the group has had the honour of headlining the iconic venue. The bill is being rounded out by Portland, OR’s Blitzen Trapper. Tickets will be available to the public this Friday, June 15, but fans of The Sheepdogs can access pre-sale tickets at 12 p.m. EST today (June 11) with the password “NOBODY.”
The Echo Beach show caps off an extremely busy winter and spring for The Sheepdogs. Their Changing Colours tour saw the band selling out shows on a 21 date coast to coast run. The band was selected as the 2018 Record Store Day Champions of Canada and the release of their “Prairie Gold” beer (made in partnership with Mill Street Brewery) received coverage from etalk. Finally, “I’ve Got a Hole Where My Heart Should Be,” the lead single from their new album Changing Colours hit the #1 spot on Canadian rock radio, while the album itself debuted in the Top 5.
The Sheepdogs are no stranger to radio success. Their single “I Don’t Know” reached Platinum certification status; both “The Way It Is” and “Feeling Good” have achieved Gold sales. In addition to the success of their singles, their albums Learn & Burn and The Sheepdogs respectively achieved Platinum and Gold status. Nominated for seven Juno Awards, the Sheepdogs have received ‘Rock Album of the Year” nominations for all three of their latest studio albums.
