Norm Lepine and Sierra Hayashi stopped by the Charles Bailey Theatre Box office to pick up some tickets for the upcoming Colin James show in May. The theatre has already sold half of the tickets with six months left before the show.

Colin James tickets going fast

Colin James will be getting “Up Close and Personal,” with Trail concert goers next year, and the show is halfway to sell-out.

Colin James will be getting “Up Close and Personal,”  with Trail concert goers next year, and the show is halfway to sell-out.

Nadine Tremblay, marketing and programming with the Charles Bailey Theatre, says the quick selling tickets could be found in Christmas stockings around the city.

“Lots of people are giving tickets away as Christmas presents, which is a nice experience and memory for those who already have everything,” she said, adding that all the seat close to the stage are going fast.

“I think people want to sit as close to him as possible, and because it will sell out, they are not waiting until even the second day to buy tickets.”

The theatre sold 256 tickets for the “Colin James…Up Close and Personal” tour on the very first day they were available.

“They are selling steadily and will certainly sell out,” said Tremblay. “Almost all of Section A is sold out. The theatre is immensely happy to have him.”

The “Voodoo Thing,” singer has been to Trail before and Tremblay says his second show in the Silver City will be just as good as the first, maybe even recruiting James’ some new fans.

“He did well last time and probably makes even more loyal and new fans with every performance,” she said. “I think, overall, the residents of Greater Trail are stoked, especially the fans. Colin James has a huge fan base around here and if you have seen him live, you’ll know why.”

Tremblay says there will even be a boost for local businesses around the theatre with the influx of concert goers the night of the show.

“The restaurants and hotels will be undoubtedly busy before and after the show,” she said. “(It will) also support more arts and culture that will draw people downtown.”

Colin James will be taking the stage at the Charles Bailey Theatre on May 8, 2105 at 7:30 p.m. For information, call 250-368-9669.
