Shediac Lobster Rock

The Sam Roberts Band, Finger Eleven and Chilliwack
will rock Shediac on Saturday, July 27th

 

Shediac will steal the show this summer with five Canadian hard rock bands presented on Saturday, July 27, 2019, in the Shediac Arena parking lot.

SHEDIAC – For a second year in a row, Shediac will host the Mega concert Shediac Lobster Rock. Last year’s event attracted over 4 000 rock fans and organizers hope to bring together as many people again this year.

The venue can accommodate more than 10 000 people and this year’s line up featuring Canada’s favourite rock bands will certainly create interest across the maritime provinces, according to Emery Bourque, from Embou productions promoters of the second edition of the Shediac Lobster Rock.  

Two local organizations (Retired volunteers from the Shediac Fire department and Dance Envy) will manage the refreshment services and profits will be shared to help finance their activities. Having local non-profit groups participating in the event will insure quick service, and the groups will also benefit financially from the concert. 

The Sam Roberts Band is one of Canada’s biggest rock band. The main singer Sam Roberts won six Juno Awards and was recently nominated for his latest album TerraForm in the Rock Album of the Year Category. Their songs Don’t Walk Away Eileen and Brother Down charted number one across Canada and the United States.

Finger Eleven achieved Gold status in the United States and Platinum in Canada with their 2003 album, largely from the success of the single One Thing. This Canadian Hard Rock band is also known for their Top 100 American Bill Board hit Paralyser released in 2007. 

The Chilliwack is a Canadian rock band who started in the 70s. Their six best-selling songs were Many Girl (Gone Gone Gone), I Believe”, Whatcha Gonna Do, Fly at Night, Crazy Talk, and “Lonesome Mary”.

The Vinyls and Undercover Legends of Rock are two rock cover band from Quebec and their talent is recognized with every performance. They will play the greatest hits from rock legends from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.
