Have a close encounter with 54-40

Canadian band brings its Gold, Guts and Glory tour to Surrey Feb. 16.

One of the most important popular music groups to emerge from Canada, 54-40 will rock the Surrey stage next weekend.

Inspired by the punk/new music scene of Vancouver, 54-40 first performed at the dawn of 1981. After 30 years, 16 releases and more than 2,000 performances, the secret to 54-40’s longevity is their ability to redefine and reinvent themselves – taking long-time fans on a thrill ride, and continually picking up new fans along the way.

Experience a close encounter with this iconic band (Neil Osborne, Brad Merritt, Matt Johnson, and Dave Genn) on Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. when they perform for the first time on Surrey Arts Centre’s Main Stage, as part of their Gold, Guts and Glory tour. The band will sign CD’s after the show.

Tickets are $47.50. Student Rush ($15), subject to availability a half-hour before curtain. Phone 604-501-5566 or check https://tickets.surrey.ca.
