Pointer Show Postponed

Fans of the Island indie-folk trio The East Pointers will have to wait a little longer to enjoy the acclaimed group at Confederation Centre of the Arts (CCOA). Due to the recent public health measures, the Centre is required to postpone the December 30 and 31 concerts to new dates in 2021.

Presented by Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre and performance sponsor KKP, the new dates are Friday, March 12 and Saturday, March 13 at 8 p.m. These dates coincide with the kick off to March Break and patrons are invited to plan ahead and celebrate mid-winter break with a night out at the Centre’s Mainstage Theatre, the crown jewel venue of P.E.I.

“We are thrilled that The East Pointers are available for these new dates and we invite our patrons to hold on to that New Year’s Eve excitement and join us to celebrate, safely, at the start of March Break,” says Darcy Campbell, director of LIVE @ the Centre. “This Island band is a must-see and the energy is always electric when they play a hometown concert with us.”

Patrons holding tickets for the original December dates will be automatically rolled into the new dates, with those holding December 30 tickets moved to March 12 and those holding December 31 tickets moved to March 13.

Patrons also have other options with their previously booked tickets: the value can be retained for future credit on a CCOA account; the ticket value can be donated to the Centre (a registered charity organization; or a refund can be issued in full.

Concert tickets always make a wonderful Christmas present, and patrons can connect with the box office at confederationcentre.com<http://www.confederationcentre.com&gt; or at 902.566.1267. Concert patrons will be sent a video explaining all social distancing and masking guidelines for the Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre concert.

With Billboard-worthy pop hooks, deep acoustic grooves, trance-like breakdowns, and three-part harmonies, Tim Chaisson, Koady Chaisson, and Jake Charron capture the furious energy of their live shows and push the boundaries of folk while lighting a new path for a new generation of music lovers. The music trailblazers have performed more than 500 live shows world-wide in the past five years, but nothing beats an Island crowd on the weekend.

Appreciation is extended to the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Province of Prince Edward Island, the City of Charlottetown, and the Special Events Reserve Fund.

Rocking the Rafters

JUNO Award-Winners return to Confederation Centre; 300 tickets available each night

Islanders searching for the must-see concert of the season should circle December 30 and 31 as Confederation Centre of the Arts is sending 2020 out with a bang. Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre presents two nights with the internationally acclaimed pop-folk trio, The East Pointers

The JUNO-Award winning trio sold out the 1,100-seat Mainstage one year ago, and now return ready to rock the hall in a time when everyone needs a good night out. Special thanks are extended to performance sponsor, KKP.

Just 300 tickets are available per night, due to social distancing guidelines. 

“The East Pointers are one of the most requested acts we hear about, and it’s always a full, fun house when they come to the Centre,” says Darcy Campbell, director of winter programming. “We’re thrilled to host them for two nights, and sign off on 2020 in style!”

With Billboard-worthy pop hooks, deep acoustic grooves, trance-like breakdowns, and three-part harmonies, Tim Chaisson, Koady Chaisson, and Jake Charron capture the furious energy of their live shows and push the boundaries of folk while lighting a new path for a new generation of music lovers. The music trailblazers have performed more than 500 live shows world-wide in the past five years, but nothing beats a hometown crowd during the holidays.

The ’17-18 season kicks off on October 16 with major pop-rock icons, The Barenaked Ladies and their Canada 1-FIVE-0 TOUR, presented by the National Arts Centre. October 24 marks the return of Canadian troubadour Joel Plaskett, joining his father Bill Plaskett for a collaborative show in the Homburg Theatre to celebrate their duo album, Solidarity.

November is jam-packed month with 11 shows on deck. These include Liam Corcoran’s album release for Nevahland; the Island premiere of A Passage to Bollywood, a rollicking family musical experience; the return of Classic Albums LIVE with the prog-rock classic 2112 by Rush; and a one night only musical comedy performance of the international hit, Menopause the Musical.

The holiday season is equally busy in December with Tomato/Tomato’s A Maritime Christmas channeling old school holiday concerts with special guests Heather Rankin and Dave Gunning. From December 14-16, Adam Brazier’s Holiday Spectacular variety show brings big laughs, guest stars, stunning dance and musical numbers, and sketches to the mainstage.

Sprinkled throughout December, the Choral Music Programme – under the direction of Donald Fraser – presents three beloved annual concerts, with Handel’s Messiah, Sing Noël, and Sing Along Messiah.

The 2018 portion of the LIVE calendar is equally exciting, and more stacked than ever with the theatre renovations now complete and no more closures planned. January offers critically acclaimed Indigenous artist Susan Aglukark as well as the return of Toronto Dance Theatre (TDT). TDT has produced an exceptional body of original Canadian choreography and had a major impact on the development of national dance audiences.

Other highlights in 2017 include Island artists The East Pointers, Dennis Ellsworth and Kinley Dowling, and The Atlantic String Machine. The Songwriters Series also returns with three heavy hitting raconteurs from Canada’s East Coast: Old Man Luedecke, Hillsburn, and Fortunate Ones, each performing for one night only in the intimate listening space of The Mack. Fellow Maritimer, Classified makes a rare Charlottetown appearance on April 14, with a special acoustic performance with guest artists entitled Classified and Friends.

The Centre’s own dance umbrella program culminates their 2017-18 instructional season with four public performances — musical theatre romps The Nifty Fifties and All the World’s A Stage in March and April at The Mack, and the matinee and evening Annual Showcases, May 5 on the mainstage.
