“The Kings and Queens travelling circus is coming to town”
Now into their second decade, with one JUNO award and several JUNO nominations under their belts, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings (Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing and Tom Wilson) have organically evolved into arguably one of the finest roots-oriented bands in North America. They have released seven CDs and gradually developed a musical brotherhood manifested in a groove, blend and melodic/rhythmic play that is distinctive, mystical, energizing and constantly evocative. Blackie and the Rodeo Kings have become and remain one of Canada’s greatest musical treasures.
Following the success of their March 2012 Massey Hall show in Toronto, Blackie and The Rodeo Kings were proud to announce the Kings and Queens Tour, named for the band’s impressive collaboration album entitled ‘Kings and Queens’ and hitting stops all across North America. The release paired the band with some of their favorite female singers and friends – and some of the biggest names in roots, blues and jazz – Roseanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, Pam Tillis, Serena Ryder, Lucinda Williams, Cassandra Wilson, Amy Helm, Janiva Magness, Mary Margaret O’Hara, Sam Phillips, Sara Watkins, Exene Cervenka, Patti Scialfa and Holly Cole. Some of the album’s Queens and other close friends will be making special guest appearances throughout the tour performing LIVE with Blackie and the Rodeo Kings.
