The Oshawa concert, in support of their XX greatest hits CD, will take place Thursday, Nov. 28th at the General Motors Centre in downtown Oshawa. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the music begins at 8 p.m. The CD features 40 tracks from 20 years of collaboration between Alan Doyle, Sean McCann and Bob Hallett.
Compiled by the band members themselves, XX is a special two-disc set which captures the many highs in a recording career that has produced ten full-length CDs and two DVDs. In order to express the band’s two sides, one disc covers the biggest hits from their more pop-oriented repertoire, while the other contains some of their most loved traditional and folk songs. To balance out the discs, the band recorded six new songs — almost a new album in itself — which run the gamut of their varied stylistic approach. Beyond the two-disc greatest hits collection, XX includes another disc that contains some of the band’s lesser known excursions and experiments.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at generalmotorscentre.com, in person at the General Motors Centre box office or by phone at 1-877-436-8811. Tickets cost $39.50, $57.50 and $84.50.
