After bringing an end to years of acrimony at a Canada Walk of Fame charity fundraiser late last year, the professional relationship between Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman has warmed to the point where these two former bandmates have committed to a 17-city Canada-wide tour this summer.
The ‘Together Again’ tour was announced on Monday by concert promoter Live Nation. The first date is in Windsor, ON, on June 11 and concludes in Montreal on July 29. Significantly, Summerside and St. John’s are also included in the arena tour that also includes one festival date, in Kemptville, ON.
Significantly, the shows are to include repertoire from the Guess Who, BTO and songs from their respective solo careers.
Tied to the reunion, Sony Music Canada is releasing a 7CD or LP set on June 20. The Bachman Cummings Collection includes five Guess Who albums and material from both Bachman Turner Overdrive and Burton Cummings.
