Canada Day will be rocking in the City of Dryden.
Tickets are on sale for the large arena concert featuring Snake Oil, a professional, high-energy rock icon tribute band.
Bill Nelson is with the Dryden Rock Revival Committee and he was a guest on the CKDR Morning Show Tuesday.
Nelson says they are hoping to bring in people from all over Northwestern Ontario for an unforgettable night.
“You would swear it was the actual bands that you are seeing on stage. His Ozzie Osborne, absolutely unbelievable. Paul Stanley. Same, you would swear it was Paul standing up there that you’re rocking with. Joan Jett, Lita Ford, the list goes on and on.”
Nelson says it’s great to have in-person events back.
“It has been a very difficult two years for everyone. Mental health has been very difficult. Everybody has been locked up for two years. We need to have that some sort of social event where everyone is gathering. We are very social creatures.”
Early bird tickets of $25 are available until the end of the day Thursday.
They will be $40 after June 23.
You can purchase them now at The Centre Online
