Al­berta’s Bad­lands will rock again this sum­mer when the iconic Cana­dian coun­try-rock band Blue Rodeo per­forms in the stun­ning am­phithe­atre of the Cana­dian Bad­lands Pas­sion Play in Drumheller, Al­berta on Satur­day, Au­gust 6, 2016.

Blue Rodeo is one of the most suc­cess­ful and well-known con­tem­po­rary Cana­dian bands, sell­ing more than four mil­lion copies of their al­bums since they were formed in 1984. Blue Rodeo was in­ducted into the Cana­dian Mu­sic Hall of Fame in 2012. They joined other Cana­dian mu­sic icons in­clud­ing Tom Cochrane and Red Rider, who were the first-ever rock mu­si­cians to per­form at a sold out Cana­dian Bad­lands Pas­sion Play am­phithe­atre last sum­mer.

That in­au­gu­ral event was rec­og­nized with two 2015 Al­berta Tourism Awards, for tourism mar­ket­ing as well as for col­lab­o­ra­tion, “Our col­lab­o­ra­tion with Cana­dian Bad­lands Tourism, as well as with pro­duc­ers of Big Val­ley Jam­boree and many lo­cal busi­nesses, made last year’s event hugely suc­cess­ful,” said Vance Neu­dorf, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of The Cana­dian Bad­lands Pas­sion Play So­ci­ety. “We’re con­fi­dent that this year’s Blue Rodeo con­cert will be an­other great ex­pe­ri­ence for lo­cals and visi­tors alike.”

Barry Mor­ishita, pres­i­dent of Cana­dian Bad­lands Tourism, which again is part­ner- ing with the Cana­dian Bad­lands Pas­sion Play to fa­cil­i­tate and mar­ket the event, added: “Work­ing to­gether is what we do best in ru­ral Al­berta and we have a proven for­mula to at­tract visi­tors to the Cana­dian Bad­lands.”

Just 90 min­utes from Cal­gary, the 2,700seat Cana­dian Bad­lands Pas­sion Play am­phithe­atre, has been the stage for an award-win­ning dra­matic pre­sen­ta­tion about the life of Je­sus Christ for the past 22 years.

Tick­ets for the Blue Rodeo con­cert are now avail­able on­line at www.cana­di­an­pas­sion­play.com or by call­ing the box of­fice at 403-823-2001.

It has been con­firmed that Blue Rodeo will be play­ing the Cana­dian Bad­lands Pas­sion Play Site on Au­gust 6.
