Simple Plan coming to SOEC

Simple Plan has announced Penticton as one of their nine city tour stops.

In support of their gold-certified album Get Your Heart On! they will play at the South Okanagan Events Centre on Feb. 9. Opening for Simple Plan will be Marianas Trench, All Time Low and These Kids Wear Crowns.

Simple Plan spent the summer touring the globe, including stops in Asia and Europe, as well as the U.S., where they were one of the highest-drawing acts on the Warped Tour. A July date in Quebec attracted nearly 90,000 fans. They will return to the U.S. for a fall tour beginning in October.

Get Your Heart On!, the Montreal-based band’s gold-certified fourth studio album, was released in June and spawned the platinum-certified hit single Jet Lag – a duet with Natasha Bedingfield on the English version and Marie-Mai on the French version. The music video for the second single Astronaut premieres today at MuchMusic, MusiquePlus and SimplePlan.com.

2012 will mark the 10-year anniversary of Simple Plan’s debut album, No Pads, No Helmets...Just Balls. The band has been voted Favourite Canadian Band an unprecedented five times by viewers of the MuchMusic Video Awards. Accolades also include the 2006 Juno Fan Choice Award and the 2005 Teen Choice Award.

Tickets go on sale Nov. 12 at 10 a.m. online at www.valleyfirsttix.com or unionevents.com, by phone 1-877-SOEC-TIX or in person at the SOEC Box Office and Wine Couontry Visitor Centre. $1 from every ticket sold on the tour will be donated to the Simple Plan Foundation. A limited number of enhanced ticket packages will be available to fan club members for all shows, consisting of a premium ticket, post-show meet and greet and pizza party with the band, a digital download of a live recording, a t-shirt and more.
