AFTER Winnipeg endured a long winter, the summer will extend to October, at least if country singer Brad Paisley has anything to say about it.
Paisley's Beat This Summer Tour hits Winnipeg's MTS Centre Wednesday Oct. 23 at 7:30 p.m. with guest artists Chris Young and Lee Brice.
Tickets are $30.50, $60.50, $80.50 (plus service charges) and go on sale May 24 at 10 a.m. at all Ticketmaster outlets or by phone at 1-855-985-5000.
The Grammy-winning Paisley invites fans to be a part of the concert's light show by downloading the Brad Paisley Light Show App, which uses a phone's hardware to flash colours in sync across its screen for an interactive concert experience during the show. (To download the app, go to http://lights.bradpaisley.com/.)
Paisley is donating $1 from each ticket sale to Live Beyond, a Nashville nonprofit with a mission to provide medical care, clean water, nutritional support, and development activities to impoverished communities in Haiti.
