On a trend that's been carrying on throughout the year, Halifax's Holly Cole is another well-respected artist that decided to put all her greatest songs onto one collection. The name of Cole's 'best of' is 'The Holly Cole Collection, Vol. 1', which was released this week on October 5th. With 14 tracks spanning the entirety of her thirteen year career, the album presents Cole in a bite sized offering.
In order to both support her new album and spread Christmas cheer across the country, Cole is bringing her Juno-winning vocals on tour this December. Her 'A Night Before Christmas Tour 2004' kicks off on December 8th in Winnipeg, with the last date coming just four days before Christmas on December 21st in Toronto. The songstress will hit 10 Canadian cities in six provinces on the 'A Night Before Christmas Tour 2004'.
During her Calgary, Alberta concert, Holly Cole will be performing with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. Not to be out done, the Edmonton, Victoria, and Vancouver symphonies will also play back-up band to Ms. Cole during her time in their respective cities.
