Harlequin is a Canadian rock band that formed in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in 1975. The band is best known for their hit singles "I Did It for Love", "Thinking of You", "Superstitious Feeling", and "Innocence".
Harlequin has been in existence since the mid-seventies and began their recording careers in New York at The Record Plant with Jack Douglas, legendary producer of John Lennon, Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, Blue Öyster Cult, The New York Dolls and Patti Smith to name a few.
They have toured across North and South America to great reviews and appreciative fans.
Unlike many bands of their era, Harlequin is still a staple of rock radio in Canada, where the band’s old and new hits still receive remarkable amounts of airplay. Fueled by this continued success at radio, the band still tours, gaining new fans all the time and attracting anyone who loves Canadian rock at its finest.
They still enjoy major airplay on the radio and are featured prominently in many a classic rocker’s music collection.
If you’ve never seen a Harlequin show you owe it to yourself to see why they are still around after more than 4 decades!More Event Details
