Colin James returning to Trail

Award-winning musician presents acoustic show at Charles Bailey Theatre in May, tickets go on sale Friday.

Colin James will be back performing in Trail over 10 years after his last show in the Silver City.

Up Close and Personal…The Acoustic Tour,” brings James, along with special guest Chris Caddell, to the Charles Bailey Theatre on May 8.

Over 700 concert-goers will have the chance to see James perform some of his classic hits like “Voodoo Thing,” Cadillac Baby,” and “Into the Mystic.”

The Kootenay Concert Connect is hosting the show, which was scheduled because of public pleas to add another date to James’ tour.

“We had this show in Nelson and many other areas in 2013,” said Kootenay Concert Connect president and general manager F.J. Hurtak.

“I have been asked by many residents of the West Kootenay, particularly Trail and Castlegar, to bring this show back to the region as tickets sold out very quickly for the 400-seat Capitol Theatre in Nelson. The routing at the time did not allow us to do a second show.”

Tickets for the intimate and acoustic show will be available starting at noon on Friday at the Charles Bailey Theatre box office for $45.
