SINEAD O’CONNOR CANCELS EDMONTON APPEARANCE

We were very saddened to learn that Sinéad O’Connor has cancelled all of her dates in 2012 due to her struggle with bipolar disorder (more info here: http://shar.es/rByfE). Our hearts go out to Sinéad, and we would like to send her love and courage in her on-going battle with mental illness.

We are working quickly to find a replacement for our Friday night headliner. We are confident that we will be able to find another artist who will generate a similar level of excitement and anticipation. We will postpone our single ticket on-sale date until we have a replacement secured. Meanwhile, our Early Bird pricing will stay in effect until that time.

Please stay tuned. You can follow us on Twitter @SixShooterR, or at www.facebook.com/interstellarrodeo, or by subscribing to the Six Shooter newsletter. Many thanks for your patience and understanding.

SADDLE UP FOR THE INTERSTELLAR RODEO

We love festivals so much, we decided to throw one of our own! On a grassy slope under the prairie stars, icons of modern music history will take the stage for the first ever Interstellar Rodeo, a celebration of music, food and wine, making its debut in Edmonton’s Heritage Amphitheatre in Hawrelak Park, July 27-29, 2012.

We are thrilled to announce that Blue Rodeo, the sweethearts of summer nights and soundtrack to our best memories, will perform. As this year’s inductees to the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, Blue Rodeo symbolizes our pride in homegrown talent. Their creative longevity and incredible list of hits reinforces our belief in the romance and power of beautiful music. We are also humbled to welcome Sinéad O’Connor this first year. A cultural revolutionary, creative firebrand, and electrifying performer, Sinéad is the fearsome voice of a generation, intimidating both for her talent and for her conviction. Sinéad recently released a new record to worldwide acclaim, and it is exciting to present this iconic artist as she returns to the spotlight. The stars have also aligned to bring Randy Newman to Edmonton. Newman is a songwriter’s songwriter, and his name is always included in our favourite artists’ lists of influences.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a party if we didn’t have some of our own posse on board to entertain and electrify. Six Shooter artists confirmed on this inaugural year include Whitehorse (featuring Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland), Jenn Grant, and The Beauties. Weekend pass buyers will receive a free album by the participating Six Shooter artist of their choice. We are also pleased to welcome our old pals Hawksley Workman, Richard Buckner, and Jason Plumb + the Willing, as well as new friends Shakura S’Aida, The Sojourners, and Michael Rault. Interstellar Rodeo presents an opportunity to celebrate artists we love and admire.

Stay tuned – there are more announcements to come.
