An amazing double billing was announced this morning for the Saturday night classic rock concert at Summer in the City… Honeymoon Suite and Winnipeg-based Harlequin will be co-headlining the SCU Mainstage on Saturday, June 16!
This show will start earlier to give concert-goers a full experience with both bands. This is truly a classic rock event that Summer in the City is thrilled to be bringing to Steinbach for 2018 as we celebrate our 10th year running!
Honeymoon Suite formed in 1982 and over the years has toured Canada and the U.S., consistently headlining club gigs and opening for such acts as Billy Idol, April Wine, The Kinks, Jethro Tull, Bryan Adams, Heart, ZZ Top and Journey. A few of their classics are “New Girl Now”, “Burning in Love”, “Feel It Again”, “Lookin’ Out For Number One” and “Still Lovin’ You”. In 1986 they won the Juno for Group Of The Year. They continue to tour Canada, performing in packed out stadiums and arenas.
Originally formed in the mid-seventies, Harlequin was discovered by representatives of Jack Douglas, legendary producer of Aerosmith, Patti Smith and John Lennon. The band proceeded to amaze everyone at the label by pushing the first release “Victim of a Song” to gold status through sheer hard work, incessant touring, word of mouth and solid song-writing. Songs like “Sweet Things In Life”, “You Are The Light” and “Survive” introduced the band to radio in many markets in Canada – especially Western Canada.
Unlike many bands of their era, Harlequin is still a staple of rock radio in Canada, where the band’s old and new hits still receive remarkable amounts of airplay. Fueled by this continued success at radio, the band still tours, gaining new fans all the time, and attracting anyone who loves Canadian rock at its finest.
Tickets will go on sale first week in May!
