Randy Bachman has announced a string of Canadian concert dates that includes shows from coast to coast.

After a number of performances aboard a cruise ship, Bachman and Turner will be starting with several concerts in Ontario before continuing on with shows in Winnipeg, Edmonton, and more. Their tour, called Randy Bachman’s Vinyl Tap Tour: Every Song Tells a Story, will also include the trio of Brent Howard, Marc LaFrance and Mick Dalla-Veewill, who have been performing together for two decades. Bachman will be performing some of the most iconic tunes from his two most popular bands, The Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive.

Bachman has been on the music scene since the 1970s. In addition to his work with The Guess Who and Overdrive, he has also been involved in the groups Brave Belt, Union, and Ironhouse, in addition to recording a number of solo albums as well. A Winnipeg native, he currently hosts a weekly radio show called "Vinyl Tap" on CBC Radio One.

Tickets for the Vinyl Tap Tour will be going on sale this Friday for most of the shows.
