Big Summer Concert line up announced!
TORONTO, June 3, 2014 /CNW/ – Grab your shades because Family Channel’s Big Ticket Summer campaign is looking bright with the announcement of not one, not two, but three Big Ticket Summer Concerts. Presented by LEGO Friends, this summer’s can’t-miss concert tour will make stops in Halifax (Friday, August 22; Halifax Metro Centre), Toronto (Saturday, August 23; Molson Canadian Amphitheatre) and Edmonton (Monday, August 25; Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium) featuring a show-stopping lineup headlined by Australian pop sensation, Cody Simpson.
Singer, songwriter and chart-topper Cody Simpson will undoubtedly make musical waves when he anchors Family’s Big Ticket Summer Concert tour, in partnership with Live Nation. From his latest album Surfers Paradise to his recent performance on season 18 of Dancing with the Stars, Simpson proves he can deliver a memorable stage show for Family fans of all ages. Joining him on the tour is the multi-talented Sabrina Carpenter, who stars as Maya Hart in the new series Girl Meet World; YouTube phenomenon Megan Nicole, whose music videos are featured on Family; and, making a special appearance at the Toronto show, pop rock band, Crystalyne.
Hilarious Canuck Calum Worthy, star of Austin & Ally and his own short series The Coppertop Flop Show, hosts the concert tour and the cast of the hit Canadian series The Next Step make their third Big Ticket Summer Concert appearance as they return to the stage for a high-energy dance performance guaranteed to bring the crowd to its’ feet.
