This fall, the rodeo is coming to 12 different Canadian towns. Blackie and the Rodeo Kings will be the main attraction as the trio packs up and travels across the country to support their latest album. The band's dates are centered in the province of Ontario, with a few gigs happening in New Brunswick, and one each in Quebec and Nova Scotia.
The first show of the tour will be performed ten days before All Hallow's Eve in Fredericton, with the final gig being played on November 7th in Toronto, Ontario. With 8 of their upcoming stops happening in Ontario, Blackie & the Rodeo Kings will spend most of their time in Canada's most heavily populated province.
Recorded in the winter of 2003, 'Bark' is Blackie & the Rodeo King's third full-length album. Featuring 14-tracks of the band's rocking country tunes, 'Bark' was the Rodeo King's first album in five years. Debuting in 1996 with 'High or Hurtin': The Songs of Willie P. Bennet', the original goal of the trio was to put the songs of a great Canadian songwriter in the spotlight. Since then Blackie & the Rodeo Kings have added their own material to their albums, with 12 of the tracks on 'Bark' being written by the band members.
