Tour

Excellent News For Music Fans

I have just received word that the “Tour Tax”, a prohibitive fee that international artists were subjected to when performing in Canada, has been scrapped.

This counterproductive fee kept newer artists out of Canada, especially independent and unsigned artists, and has caused many clubs to stop featuring live acts altogether. 

Over 143,000 signatures had been registered on a change.org petition promoted on this blog in 2013, which was presented to Jason Kenney, Canada’s Minister for Multiculturalism.

Finally Re-Released on CD

Platinum Blonde’s “Standing in the Dark", one of my very favourite Canadian new wave rock albums, has been remastered and re-released on compact disc to celebrate its 30th Anniversary.

This album has been available on iTunes since 2010 and the band is currently on tour promoting its release.
