Four of the biggest Canadian rock bands of the 1990s are coming to Lethbridge.
All in one night.
Big Wreck, Headstones, Moist and The Tea Party are teaming up for the Saints And Sinners Tour this summer, which includes a stop at Lethbridge’s Enmax Centre on July 2.
The bands have shared festival dates in the past, but it’s the first time all four will have played together. Each night will feature a rotating, surprise lineup.
Big Wreck burst onto the scene in 1997 with their debut album In Loving Memory OfÉ, including the hit singles “That Song,” “Blown Wide Open” and “The Oaf.” Following a hiatus from 2002-10, the band returned the following year with the No. 1 single “Albatross” and the album of the same name.
Headstones are fronted by the charismatic Hugh Dillon and had a string of hits in the 1990s. In 2019, they released the album PeopleSkills, their fourth album since returning to active duty in 2013.
Moist has hits such as “Push,” “Silver” and “Resurrection” during the mid 1990s. Following a break in 2000, where singer David Usher embarked on a successful solo career, Moist reunited and released Glory Under Dangerous Skies in 2014.
The Tea Party has sold more 1.8 million records worldwide. Their latest EP “The Black River” was recently released.
Tickets and VIP packages for this tour stop go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at http://www.enmaxcentre.ca, by phone at call 403-329-7328 or in person at the Enmax Centre or Yates Theatre box offices.
