Canadian music icon Randy Bachman’s Vinyl Tap Tour: Every Song Tells a Story will make a stop in the Okanagan for an appearance at the Kelowna Community Theatre on April 20.

In a rare and intimate setting, Bachman weaves together the iconic hits of the Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive with the often-humorous stories that brought the songs to life.

Inspired by his award-winning radio program Vinyl Tap, Bachman is taking his master story-telling and voluminous musical knowledge on the road and takes fans on a retrospective of his career.

A visual backdrop illustrating Bachman’s legendary rock n’ roll journey will accompany each song, giving viewers a historical glimpse into one of Canada’s greatest musical ambassadors.

The man who is often referred to as the “architect of Canadian rock n’ roll” has earned over 120 gold and platinum album/singles awards around the world.

His song writing has garnered him the coveted #1 spot on radio play lists in over 20 countries and he has amassed over 40 million records sold.

Joining Bachman on this tour will be the trio of Brent Howard, Marc LaFrance and Mick Dalla-Vee.
