Penticton Peach Festival changes opening line-up

Rock band Prism will take the place of Doug and the Slugs, who had to cancel

The rock band Prism will be taking the place of Doug and the Slugs and the upcoming Penticton Peach Festival.

Due to circumstances beyond the festival’s control, the lineup for the opening night will be changing.

Prism will now be playing in place of Doug and the Slugs who had to cancel their Wednesday, Aug. 3 performance.

“It is unfortunate that Doug and the Slugs can’t be here, and we hope they will join us another year, but we are pleased that we are able to bring in two-time Juno award-winning rockers Prism. They have sold millions of albums and rock the stage more energetically than ever,” said Don Kendall, Penticton Peach Festival’s president.

Founding member Al Harlow’s showmanship drives Prism forward with award-winning alumni Gary Grace, Tad Goddard and Marc Gladstone’s brilliant performances of the trademark Prism sound that includes hits such as Spaceship Superstar, Take Me to the Kaptain, Flying, Armageddon, Take Me Away, Young & Restless, Night to Remember and others.

The other bands set to perform over the Peach Festival week have not changed, and you will still be able to see Honeymoon Suite, Glass Tiger and Simply Queen among the many performers.

Prism will be taking over the Wednesday, Aug. 3 time slot of 7:45 p.m. on the Peters Bros. Construction stage with Honeymoon Suite following at 9:30 p.m.
