Cherry Suede Legends of Rock Set to be a Sell Out Tour
CHERRY SUEDE PERFORM BRYAN ADAMS "RECKLESS" AND BON JOVI "CROSS ROAD" IN THEIR ENTIRETY
Ottawa, ON (PRUnderground) August 27th, 2014
Cherry Suede: Legends of Rock tour is set to be a sell out according to show organizers. With two months before the start of the UK leg of the tour, there is a waiting list for the closing night in London on November 16th and only a handful of tickets left for most of the 13 scheduled concerts. This means that there will be a packed house when the tour opens at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh on October 16th.
“Demand has been particularly strong this tour, with ticket sales we would only normally expect to see a few days out from the tour. Significantly, many of the sales have come from people looking to see the band for the first time” said guitarist Randy Young.
“There are a number of factors driving ticket demand – this is our fifth UK tour, and while our direct-to-fan approach helps keep ticket prices down, we feel it’s both our fan-first attitude and the word-of-mouth from our core audience, the “Cherry Suede Brigade ” that make each tour a success” he added.
“Our recent Canadian and US shows have all been near sell outs, and with only two months to go before the tour starts, fans from all over the UK have snapped up nearly 90% of all available tickets to our three back-to-back London shows. I would therefore strongly urge anyone who is thinking about attending, for what will be the last UK tour for Cherry Suede for awhile, to get tickets as soon as possible to make sure they don’t miss out.”
Cherry Suede: Legends of Rock tour will be a rare series of shows featuring performances of Bryan Adams’ “Reckless” and Bon Jovi’s “Cross Road” albums in their entirety – both celebrating 30th and 20th anniversaries respectively. There promises to be plenty of show favourites, including Bryan Adams’ “Summer of 69” and the Bon Jovi classics “Livin’ on a Prayer” and “Wanted Dead or Alive”.
Ticket pre-sale, including an option for a limited edition Cherry Suede Legends of Rock tshirt, is still open for concert goers wishing to get their advance tickets to this tour, which takes place between Thursday October 16th and Saturday November 16th. One fan, who has seen Cherry Suede “enter fan raving here”
“This tour is about tipping our hat to Rock and Roll history” says vocalist Randy Scott. “We are music fans first, performers second. These shows are a way for us to celebrate the music that makes up our DNA as songwriters and as artists. The songs are simply fantastic. and the show is hit song after hit song after hit song- it’s non-stop. We couldn’t be more excited every time we step onto a stage.”

About Cherry Suede
Cherry Suede is a popular independent rock band from Ottawa, ON Canada. Incorporating the unique approach of a direct-to-fan business model, they’ve played over 3000 shows in Canada, United States, United Kingdom and Africa, without the help of any traditional record companies or agents. They are one of the first indie bands to embrace live concert streaming, and their Indiegogo crowd funding campaigns have both greatly exceeded their goals. They often create premium travel experiences to destinations that include NYC, London, UK and even Kenya. Their merchandise line ranges from traditional tshirts, hoodies and coffee mugs, to their own line of coffee and chocolate. The strong word of mouth and loyalty of Cherry Suede’s fans has helped push them to the fore-front of leading independent artists, where they dominate several key niche market segments.
