  • Kim Mitchell Returns Home to Perform Solo Faves
    and a Whole Mountain of Max
  • Toronto: The Phoenix Concert Theatre plays host to Kim Mitchell on Thursday, November 30th. The Canadian Icon will perform both his solo material, as well as songs from the expansive Max Webster catalogue.Mitchell is a uniquely gifted and peer respected guitar player, as well as an acclaimed song writer, penning numerous classic songs with his writing partner Pye Dubois. Those songs include the Kim Mitchell anthems “All We Are”, “Go For Soda”, “Patio Lanterns”, “Rock ‘n Roll Duty” and “ Easy to Tame”, as well as eclectic gems for Max Webster, including “Diamonds, Diamonds”, “High Class In Borrowed Shoes”, “Oh War” and “Battlescar” — all songs that have an important place in the Canadian musical genome. Kim, along with his band mates Peter Fredette, Sam Pomanti and Dave Langguth will be performing these, and other classic songs, for this one night only special event. This is Kim’s first Toronto performance since his 2016 sold out show at The Phoenix, commemorating the venue’s 25th anniversary.

    Today also marks the release of “The Party” a definitive 8 disc vinyl and CD box set ( ole Label Group/Anthem Legacy/Universal Music Canada), that includes the long out-of-print Kim Mitchell self titled EP.

    Kim Mitchell is currently working on new material for release in 2018.

100.7 CRUZ FM’s Wild Wild Party with Kim Mitchell has been postponed until Friday, May 20 at the Red Deer Memorial Centre.

Tom Berry, Kim Mitchell’s manager states: “This is a very difficult decision for Kim as he does not want to let his Red Deer fans, the promoter, or 100.7 CRUZ FM down, however Kim has caught a horrible cold and the cold has slowed his ability for a complete recovery from his early January heart attack by a couple of extra weeks. His doctors have suggested that he not perform before May 1st. Kim wants everyone to know he is very much looking forward to returning to perfect health and to the concert stage in Red Deer. The rescheduled show will take place at the Memorial Center on Friday, May 20th.”

All tickets won through 100.7 CRUZ FM are still valid and will give you access to the show on the new date on Friday, May 20.

Kim Mitchell and members of the Safe and Sober Awareness Committee (S&SAC) give the THUMBS UP to all ATV operators who plan on being safe on the trails this fall. Not drinking prior to operating an ATV and wearing your helmet are positive choices and go a long way in reducing serious injury and death on Ontario trails and roadways. The S&SAC is pleased to announce and provide another of a series of public service announcements (PSA) for use at media outlets and social media sites. These PSA’s are a result of an innovative partnership with Canadian Rock icon Kim Mitchell and Alert Music Inc.

Kim Mitchell and the Safe and Sober Awareness Committee want to remind people that every choice has a consequence. If you are driving, no matter what the vehicle, be smart and make the right decision, don’t drink and drive, “GO FOR SODA”
