The Molson Canadian Centre at Casino New Brunswick presents Blue Rodeo!
When fans lined Toronto’s Queen Street to get into clubs where Blue Rodeo was performing in the mid-1980s, the band felt as though they had achieved success. And, in fact, they had. But that success has grown exponentially through the ensuing three decades since they formed, and by staying authentic and true to themselves, Canada continues its enduring love affair with Blue Rodeo.
Welcome to 1000 Arms. “This record has a lot more energy; a bit more up-tempo,” says Greg Keelor, who, along with Jim Cuddy, leads Blue Rodeo. “Jim and I are singing a lot together, and it turned out really great.” Much of the credit for the sound of 1000 Arms can be attributed to recording in the comfort of the band’s home studio, The Woodshed, with co-producer Tim Vesely.
“Tim had been listening to all the old records, and said, ‘You guys have to sing more together.’ We were surprised. ‘Don’t we do that?’ But we realized that because we did that so naturally, which was a basic characteristic of the band, that as we moved on to records ten, eleven and twelve, we started to do different things. So we made a very concerted effort to sing together on this album, either with direct harmonies or call and response, and we really enjoyed it. It felt like we were getting back to something that was very strong for us.”
In the thirty years since forming, Blue Rodeo has sold over 4 million albums, won countless Juno awards, been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, received a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, been named to the Order of Canada and have been honoured with the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award.
