Chilliwack sells out two shows

Popular rock band Chilliwack is coming to Sidney next month and have already virtually sold out both scheduled shows

Sidney’s Mary Winspear Centre welcomes Chilliwack August 8 and 9. A second show was added after the Friday concert sold out quickly.

Popular rock band Chilliwack is coming to Sidney next month and have already virtually sold out both scheduled shows.

“The Friday show sold out really quickly,” said Theatre Manager Phillip Sutton last Friday, adding that that’s why the band added a second show on the Thursday.

“And at this point we only have a handful of tickets left for the Thursday show,” he said.

The band started out in Vancouver and has enjoyed national success since their inception in 1964.

Some of the band’s hits include My Girl (Gone Gone Gone), I Believe, Whatcha Gonna Do and Lonesome Mary.

The shows take place at the Mary Winspear Centre Thursday, Aug. 8 (a few tickets may still be available) and Friday, Aug. 9 (sold out) at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $44.10 and may still be available at the Mary Winspear Centre box office, 250-656-0275.
