Arkells to perform in Kelowna as part of latest album tour

The rock and rollers are performing Feb. 5 at Prospera Place

The high-energy, chart topping, live-rock’n’roll authorities Arkells are back.

With the release of their highly-anticipated new album, Rally Cry, the Hamilton five-piece have announced a 2019 national tour kicking off in Vancouver, Feb. 2 with very special guests, Lord Huron.

The show stoppers will perform in Kelowna, Feb. 5 at Prospera Place.

“We’ve built up real relationships with all of these towns over the year,” said frontman Max Kerman. “Each time we go back, the show means a little bit more. It’s our most ambitious tour yet, and we can’t wait to make some new memories.”

The Rally Cry Tour follows the band’s show-stopping headlining performance at The Rally, a one-day summer stadium show held at Hamilton’s Tim Hortons Field in front of 24,000 fans this past June. Arkells are thrilled to welcome Lord Huron to the bill as very special direct support, according to a Prospera Place news release.

“We’ve been massive fans of Lord Huron forever, and their latest album Vide Noir is one of the best releases of 2018. It’ll be a treat to watch them every night. We can’t wait to get back on the road across Canada – we wrote these new songs to play them live for you.”

Tickets will go on sale Friday, Oct. 26 at www.livenation.com. Complete Canadian tour listing below.
