Islanders searching for the must-see concert of the season should circle Dec. 30 and 31 as Confederation Centre of the Arts is sending 2020 out with a bang.
Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre presents two nights with the internationally acclaimed pop-folk trio, The East Pointers.
The Juno-Award winning trio, which is based in P.E.I., sold out the 1,100-seat Mainstage Theatre one year ago and now returns ready to rock the hall in a time when everyone needs a good night out.
Both concerts start at 8 p.m. For tickets, visit confederationcentre.com or connect with the box office, either in person or at 902-566-1267. More information is also available online on the centre’s COVID-19-related policies.
“The East Pointers are one of the most requested acts we hear about, and it’s always a full, fun house when they come to the centre,” says Darcy Campbell, director of winter programming. “We’re thrilled to host them for two nights and sign off on 2020 in style.”
With Billboard-worthy pop hooks, deep acoustic grooves, trance-like breakdowns and three-part harmonies, Tim Chaisson, Koady Chaisson and Jake Charron capture the furious energy of their live shows and push the boundaries of folk while lighting a new path for a new generation of music lovers.
The music trailblazers have performed more than 500 live shows worldwide in the past five years, but nothing beats a hometown crowd during the holidays.
Tickets are limited, so patrons should act fast. Appreciation is extended to the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Province of Prince Edward Island, and the City of Charlottetown.
