Sobeys LIVE @ The Centre! returns with a bang this October and the line-up is chalk-full of dynamic performances that appeal to a wide range of Islanders, visitors, and beyond.

“This season truly has something for everyone,” says Darcy Campbell, director of LIVE @ the Centre, a long-standing program of Confederation Centre of the Arts. “The program includes A-list musicians from a wealth of genres, family entertainment, contemporary dance, several first-time holiday concerts, and more!”

The 2019-20 line-up includes artists and performers that truly showcase the wealth of talent in this country, including Basia Bulat, Crash Test Dummies, and Steven Page, as well as local award-winning performers, The East Pointers, Catherine MacLellan, andAndrew Waite.

“Because LIVE is not a long run of single shows, a great variety can be enjoyed. So, take a chance on something new this season–there’s so much to explore!” adds Campbell.

As part of their new album launch, long-time Island rock icons,Paper Lions present a thrilling ‘Super Show’ on Saturday, October 19, using all the bells and whistles of the Homburg Theatre and welcoming a line-up of special guests and local musicians.

Calgary-based dance company, Decidedly Jazz Danceworks makes their long-awaited return November 6 with Juliet & Romeo. The company’s high-energy, unique jazz style has caused people to describe their work as “music for the eyes.”

Two Canadian country music superstars come together to celebrate the holidays with an acoustic collaboration:The 12 Days of Christmas Tour. Multiple CCMA Award-winning artists George Canyon and Aaron Pritchett have teamed up to share  a night of stories, songs, and family-friendly comedy.
