Tom Cochrane and his band Red Rider, have firmly cemented themselves as a popular arena touring act across Canada in the past few decades. However, this spring, Cochrane and Red Rider will be performing a series of intimate theatre shows in both Alberta and in British Columbia. Fans in Nanaimo will be happy to note that The Port Theatre is included in the list of performance dates on March 11th 2019.

Tom Cochrane has been the recipient of 8 Juno Awards, plus multiple songwriter awards from SOCAN, CAPAC, and ASCAP. Cochrane is also a GRAMMY nominee, a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame. He holds an honorary doctorate, has a coveted place on Canada’s Walk of Fame, and has been honoured with both the order of Manitoba and the Order of Canada.

Cochrane’s tireless philanthropic work over the past few decades is very worthy of mention, and gets little recognition, because it is very often overshadowed by his tremendous musical accomplishments. He has worked with War Child, World Vision, Waterkeeper Alliance, Amnesty International, Make Poverty History, World Animal Protection, The United Way, Unison, Tree Canada, and Tempo just to name a few. He was a performer at Live 8, and in both Tears are Not Enough, and Young Artists for Haiti.

AND then there is his incredible music. The album, Mad Mad World remains among the top selling albums in Canadian music history, achieving rare Diamond-Certified status on the strengths of such hit singles as the title track, No regrets, Washed Away, Sinking Like a Sunset, and of course Life is a Highway, which reigned at #1 for 6 straight weeks in Canada, and reached #6 on the North American Billboard Hot 100, and went on to become recognized the world over.

Tom Cochrane and Red Rider will be LIVE in concert at The Port Theatre on March 11th, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 11th at the Port Theatre Box office, or by calling 250-754-8550, or on line at All seats are reserved and priced at $70.00 which includes all taxes, and venue service charges. You are advised to get your tickets early for this event, as only 800 fans will get the opportunity to see and hear this special theatre performance by the artist who emerged from Lynn Lake Manitoba, more than 4 decades ago with guitar in hand and harmonica in pocket and is still riding the highway today!
