They’re travelling a lot more than 500 miles on this occasion. The iconic Celtic Soul Brothers The Proclaimers will be stopping into Cranbrook’s Key City Theatre in August as part of their Canadian tour.

The Proclaimers are a Scottish band fronted by identical twins Charlie and Craig Reid. They have released nine studio albums since their debut in 1987 and continue to tour extensively throughout the world.

Their international breakthrough album “Sunshine On Leith” produced such hits as “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles),” Sunshine on Leith”, and “I’m on My Way.”

They are described by critics as folk rock, celtic rock, country rock and power pop, or a combination of all of the above.

One critic said, “The Proclaimers seem to be able to write songs, that once you hear them, you just can’t get them out of your head …they are pleasantly contagious.”

The Proclaimers will be appearing at the Key City Theatre in Cranbrook for one show only, on August 27 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will go on sale on Monday, April 15 at the Key City Theatre box office or can be booked by phone at 250-426-7006. All seats are reserved and priced at $42.50, all inclusive.

Tickets are going on sale early as a result of the Key City box office being closed for most of the summer, so fans are encouraged to purchase their tickets early to avoid disappointment.

The Proclaimers Live on Tour is a presentation of the Kootenay Concert Connection, in association with the Cranbrook Daily Townsman and the Drive 102.9 FM. Sound and lights by PB Pro Audio.
