Reid is partnering with Plus One on the tour, donating one dollar from each ticket purchased in participating markets in support of MusiCounts Band Aid Program, which keeps music classes alive in schools across Canada and puts instruments into the hands of children who need them most.

With an illustrious career spanning more than a decade, the JUNO Award winning singer has captured the hearts of fans and audiences around the world. A critically acclaimed vocalist, Reid is widely known for his lyrical honesty and musical ability, as demonstrated by his extensive catalogue of hit songs, album sales totalling over 1.1 million units, countless awards and multiple SOLD OUT national arena tours. With the release of “What Love Is All About”, produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin, the highly praised and top-ranked Canadian star will add to his remarkable catalogue – his first brand new collection of material since 2012’s “Fire It Up”. The tour  of the same name also played Cranbrook in April of that year and sold out completely. Some people have said to the promoters that Reid’s show was the best family-oriented show ever to come to the region.

Connecting with audiences of all ages, Reid thrives as a performer and songwriter sharing his stories and songs around the world with incalculable influence. He’s a modern day working class hero with long standing collective appeal – one that captures the hearts of many one song at a time.

Johnny Reid’s “What Love is all About Tour” on February 29th is a presentation of the Kootenay Concert Connection and Sakamoto Entertainment. Media sponsors are Summit 107 FM the East Kootenay’s  favourite new radio station and the Daily Townsman/Bulletin.
