An iconic Canadian band is coming back to Winnipeg to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its breakthrough LP.
True North Sports + Entertainment announced Wednesday that Big Sugar will hit the stage at the Burton Cummings Theatre on March 4, 2024, as part of a tour behind the deluxe reissue of 1993’s Five Hundred Pounds.
The gig will include two sets that also feature songs from throughout the band’s career, which spans a total of more than a dozen albums, live releases and EPs since its 1988 founding in Toronto.
Big Sugar — led by singer/songwriter/guitarist Gordie Johnson — was a dominant force on Canadian rock airwaves throughout the 1990s, combining electric blues, rock and reggae on hits like Diggin’ A Hole, Turn the Lights On and The Scene.
Tickets to the Winnipeg concert go on sale Friday.
