On the heels of the announcement that their self-titled debut label LP The Sheepdogs, debuted at No. 1 on the Top 200 SoundScan Chart, the Saskatoon band has announced an extensive headlining cross-Canada tour kicking off Nov. 15.

The Sheepdogs arrive in the Okanagan Dec. 18 to play a show at the Kelowna Community Theatre.

As impassioned on stage as they are on record, The Sheepdogs have spent much of their musical lifetime on the road. In addition to innumerable headline shows and festival appearances, the band has shared stages with such like-minded acts as Kings of Leon, John Fogerty, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, and Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears.

Support on the Canadian tour is Kelowna’s Yukon Blonde, who have earned no shortage of acclaim for their hook-heavy brand of pop rock. However, before heading out across the country, The Sheepdogs, who just started their U.S. run, will make a couple of special appearances, including The Wolf’s 20th Anniversary Concert in Peterborough with rockers Sloan on Nov. 1, and the Rock 95 Birthday Bash with legendary Randy Bachman in Barrie on Nov. 3.

Tickets to see The Sheepdogs in Kelowna are $29.50 available at all Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.ca, or charge by phone at 1-855-985-5000.
