Canadian Music Hall of Famers Blue Rodeo brought their ‘1000 Arms tour’ to Oshawa to play in front of a packed house at the Tribute Communities Centre on Saturday night, touring to promote their 15th studio album.
Blue Rodeo have had their fingers on the pulse of Canadiana for the better part of the last 30 years, and Jim Cuddy, Greg Keelor, and the rest of the gang gave their fans exactly what they wanted, as they belted out hit after hit for more than two hours, mixing in new songs such as “I Can’t Hide This Anymore” along with timeless efforts such as “Try” and “Hasn’t Hit Me Yet”. All the while, fans around the arena were happily singing along to both the classics and the new material, proving that the country-rock legends haven’t lost a step along the way.
Fellow Canadian country-rock band The Sadies opened the show on Saturday, setting the tone for the evening with a brief but impressive set, before returning to join Blue Rodeo at the conclusion of the night in a rousing rendition of “Lost Together”.
