Gordie Sampson Tags Along With Keith Urban

Published: 2005-03-29
Cape Breton's own singing and songwriting wonder, Gordie Sampson, has been handpicked by Keith Urban to accompany the country superstar on his jaunt across Canada. The tour kicked off yesterday (March 28th) in Red Deer, Alberta, and will continue on until April 9th when the pair hit the nation's capital (also known as Ottawa).

Not only does Urban respect Sampson enough as an artist to have him kick along on the stadium tour, but on Urban's most recent album "Be Here" he features music penned by Sampson. The Canadian singer got the track "You (Or Somebody Like You)" on Urban's European CD release of "Be Here".

Sampson continues to tour in support of his latest album "Sunburn", which helped the roots rocker gain five ECMAs this year. He's also up for "Songwriter of the Year" at the 2005 Juno Awards, which are being held in Winnipeg on April 3rd. Both Urban and Sampson will be joining in the festivities for this huge Canadian music event, with a full performance the following night.

Remaining dates on Keith Urban's tour with Gordie Sampson:

March 29 Grande Prairie, AB - Arena
March 31 Calgary, AB - Saddledome
April 1 Edmonton, AB - Rexall Place
April 2 Winnipeg, MB - 2005 Juno Songwriters Circle
April 4 Winnipeg, MB - Concert Hall
April 7 London, ON - John Labatt Centre
April 8 Rama, ON - Casino Rama
April 9 Ottawa, ON - Civic Centre
