Approximate running time: 2 hours

Legendary Canadian Rock Music Icon TOM COCHRANE has rocked stages through a fabled career spanning over forty years. As both the lead singer and songwriter for Red Rider, and his stellar solo act, he has built an authentic relationship with his fans. This Fall, Cochrane will be performing a series of intimate theatre shows in British Columbia. It’s Tom Cochrane like you have never seen or heard him before in an intimate duo format.
Having helped shape the musical landscape for future generations of Canadian artists, TOM COCHRANE has been the recipient of 8 Juno Awards, plus multiple songwriter awards from SOCAN, CAPAC, and ASCAP. He is also a Grammy nominee, a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame. He holds an honorary doctorate, has a coveted place on Canada’s Walk of Fame, and has been honoured with both the order of Manitoba and the Order of Canada. The cherry on top is the fact Cochrane remains one of only three male Canadian singer songwriters to have a diamond certified album in Canada.
All of this is the result of his incredible music. The album, “Mad Mad World” remains among the top selling albums in Canadian music history, achieving rare Diamond-Certified status on the strengths of such hit singles as the title track, “No regrets”, “Washed Away”, “Sinking Like a Sunset”, and of course “Life is a Highway”, which reigned at #1 for 6 straight weeks in Canada, and reached #6 on the North American Billboard Hot 100, and went on to become recognized the world over.
Cochrane’s tireless philanthropic work over the past few decades is very worthy of mention, and gets little recognition, because it is very often overshadowed by his tremendous musical accomplishments. He has worked with War Child, World Vision, Waterkeeper Alliance, Amnesty International, Make Poverty History, World Animal Protection, The United Way, Unison, Tree Canada, and Tempo just to name a few. He was a performer at Live 8, and in both Tears are Not Enough, and Young Artists for Haiti.
