Tom Cochrane With Red Rider
Canadian rock icon Tom Cochrane and his band Red Rider will be hitting the road with their just announced “Take It Home Tour” which will include a date at the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver on Tuesday, February 24, 2015.
Over the course of a long and illustrious career spanning over forty years, the pride of Lynn Lake, Manitoba started out as a folk-based singer-songwriter playing the coffee houses of Toronto’s famed Yorkville scene in the early 70’s. He joined the band Red Rider in 1977 and together they released five albums that spawned such hits as “Human Race”, “Boy Inside The Man” and “Victory Day”. Cochrane launched his solo career in 1991 quickly achieving massive international success with his breakthrough album, Mad Mad World and its anthemic hit, “Life Is A Highway”.
Since then, he has continued to create potent new material while cementing his place in the hearts of Canadians through crowd-pleasing performances from coast to coast. An Order of Canada recipient and Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee, he has won eight Juno Awards and received a Grammy nomination. He has also been presented with numerous other industry honours including the 2013 Allan Waters Humanitarian Award. Just recently, Cochrane finished recording his new album – the feverishly anticipated Take It Home – which Universal Music Canada will release in February to coincide with the tour.
