Hamilton’s Arkells reached out to fans on social media Wednesday inviting them out to the first of several Campfire Nights set for mid- to late-July.
The rain or shine events feature an intimate, stripped-back version of the band repertoire in addition to sing-a-longs with concertgoers.
The first of the intimate concerts, earmarked for about 2,500 listeners on July 15, will be at Base31 in Prince Edward County, a new cultural and entertainment destination on the former site of a WWII air training base.
A follow-up event set for Norfolk County will happen at the Burning Kiln Winery in St. Williams just a couple of weeks later on July 29.
Special Arkells fan pre-sales began Thursday for both events with the Norfolk show selling out its pre-sale before noon.
General admission tickets will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at just over $100 each.
Tickets can be bought on Showpass through the band’s website.
