On May 19th, platinum-selling, two-time JUNO Award nominee and CCMA Award winner Tim Hicks will release his first live album aptly titled “Tim Hicks Live”, via Open Road Recordings. A determined road warrior known for his compelling stage presence, Hicks brings his highly praised road show to life on the six-track digital release, delivering some of his biggest hits and fan favourites including the viral smash “Stronger Beer”.
“I’m so excited for this release,” shares Tim Hicks. “For me, the live show has always been a huge part of who I am as a performer and having captured a little bit of our “Shake These Walls Tour” in a digital release is really cool. We started recording the tour as a means for us to critique ourselves on a nightly basis, but when I went back and heard the performances I felt that we just had to share them with our fans. I hope everyone enjoys these songs live as much as we loved performing them on the tour.”
Hicks’ Summer Tour continues to heat up with the announcement that he will join Dean Brody on August 24th in Toronto at the iconic Budweiser Stage. Also announced, Hicks will return to Ottawa Bluesfest on July 16th as direct support for Tom Petty and he will once again headline the annual Summer Throwdown concert celebrating Canada 150 on July 1 in Wasaga, ON.Notable dates throughout the summer include Dauphin Countryfest (June 30), Cavendish Beach Music Festival (July 9), Sunfest (August 5) and many more.
Earlier this month, Hicks announced that he’ll bring the highly praised Shake These Walls Tour to Quebec for six headlining dates in January and February (2018). Throughout the month of January (2017), the tour played to thousands of fans, with Hicks delivering a raucous set night after night – igniting crowds from coast to coast with the “right kind of magic to bring fans back for another round” (Bucketlist).
