SOEC announces The Band Perry to kick off tour in Penticton

The South Okanagan Events Centre officially announced The Band Perry in Penticton on Jan. 9.

The South Okanagan Events Centre officially announced The Band Perry will kick off the North American portion of their world tour in Penticton on Jan. 9.

The announcement doesn’t come as a surprise to many as The Band Perry posted their tour schedule with the SOEC date on their website in August.

This will be the award-winning family trio’s first worldwide headline arena tour in support of their album, Pioneer.

“We live to play. In our minds everything we do – writing, recording, interviews, appearances – is the means to the live end. To fully and totally understand our band, you have to see us live.  It’s the three of us in our element, our living room, our therapy session, our recess. We can’t wait to bring WE ARE PIONEERS to the world,” says Kimberly Perry in a press release.

Throughout the We Are Pioneers World Tour, The Band Perry will debut an entirely new show, including a new set, sound, lights and even a few new tricks. The Band Perry are no strangers to life on the road, having been on tour approximately 850 of the last 915 days. This summer alone, the trio shattered attendance records at multiple arenas across North American and have played to over half a million people.
