April Wine at Cultural Centre Sunday in Chilliwack

Thousands of concerts since they started, April Wine plays Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Sunday, May 27.

April Wine is both iconic and eternal on the Canadian rock front.

It’s been an unbelievable 42 years, with 11 Juno noms, and 34 singles.

It all began in Nova Scotia 1969 with a name they picked because the two words sounded good together.

Thousands of concerts later April Wine is known the world over. The band plays The Cultural Centre on Sunday, May 27.

Classic hits “Sign of The Gypsy Queen”, “Roller”, “Tonight Is A Wonderful Time To Fall In Love” and “Just Between You and Me” led the band’s induction into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame (2009), receiving The Lifetime Achievement Award (2009) and induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame (2010).

Fan favorites “Weeping Widow”, “Just Like That” and “Lady Run Lady Hide” followed by the hit “I Wouldn’t Want To Lose Your Love” pushed the band into platinum status.  “The Whole World’s Goin’ Crazy” and “She’s No Angel” continued the hit parade.

During the Chilliwack show, April Wine front man Myles Goodwyn has said he might also be playing a few tunes that were inspirational to him growing up, and possibly some obscure April Wine songs that he wrote as well.

“These are songs that fans have been asking to hear but are difficult to reproduce live or simply not conducive to the flow of the familiar songs that folks wanna hear year after year.”

Power songs “I Like To Rock”, “Say Hello”, “Crash And Burn”, “Anything You Want You Got It”, “Enough is Enough”, “If You See Kay” proved there was still plenty of “Wine” to go around! They continue to satisfy their fans with a live mix of straight ahead rock n’ roll and power ballads, an April Wine mainstay.
