Back in Ottawa by popular demand after a sold out show in 2015, Roger Hodgson, one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our time, co-founded the progressive rock band, Supertramp, in 1969 is returning to Ottawa!  Roger was the driving force behind what fans call the “golden years” of the band that made Supertramp a worldwide phenomenon with album sales in excess of 60 million. He wrote, sang, and arranged such enduring rock standards as “Breakfast in America,” “Give a Little Bit,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “The Logical Song,” “Dreamer,” “It’s Raining Again,” “School,”  and “Fool’s Overture.” 

Uniting generations, Hodgson transports baby boomers back to their youth while giving younger concertgoers a taste of why his heartfelt songs have endured. In Canada, sales for Crime of the Century and Breakfast in America reached Diamond status; one in every 15 Canadians owned both these albums!

Multi-Platinum selling progressive pop band Marianas Trench have announced their second headlining tour in Canada this year, “Marianas Trench and the Last Crusade,” which kicks off on November 1st in Prince George, BC at CN Centre. VIP tickets will be available on Wednesday, September 7th at 10am local time. General admission tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, September 9th at 10am local time. Go to for more info and to purchase tickets.

The 15-date tour will showcase new material from their latest released fourth studio album Astoria which echoes one part 1980’s fantasy adventure film and one part classic Marianas Trench. It honours classic coming of age stories, and reflects on frontman Josh Ramsay’s own personal journey that took him from the highest high to the darkest point in his life and career. “This album is about completely falling to pieces, and picking yourself back up again,” Josh explains. “We took the hardest two years of my life and made it into something beautiful, and our best work to date.”

Excited to be returning home to Canada, the Vancouver-based four-piece announces, “Grab your treasure map and your compass cuz we’re going on an adventure! We can’t wait for our coast to coast quest for the holy grail of rock…and all of Canada is invited!”

Joining the band on tour is Canadian singer/songwriter, Shawn Hook, who is born and raised in British Columbia. Shawn’s musical journey has proven that he is an emotive and soulful singer. His live performances are equally as impressive, showcasing his remarkable depth and vocal range.  Recently, he performed with Hailee Steinfeld at the 2016 iHearRadio Much Music Video Awards.  His sophomore album, Analog Love was released on June 2015 via Universal Music Canada. On the heels of the release, Shawn celebrated “Sound Of Your Heart” a standout track on the record, being certified Platinum in Canada.

Over the last decade, Marianas Trench constantly raised the bar for quality music, which translated into their explosive live shows. They have built their name on relentless touring in Canada and globally, headlining tours in the USA, Australia, New Zealand, and soon in Europe for the first time in September-October 2016.

Since their 2006 debut, Fix Me, Marianas Trench have had two Certified Platinum-selling records (Masterpiece Theatre, Ever After), chart topping hits including ‘Fallout,’ ‘Haven’t Had Enough,’ and ‘Stutter,’ garnered multiple SOCAN and MMVA Awards, number 1 videos on MuchMusic, and JUNO nominations, and won the 2013 JUNO Award for Group of the Year. Ramsay also received a Grammy nomination in 2013 for co-writing and producing Carly Rae Jepsen’s breakthrough smash “Call Me Maybe.”

Snowsuit Fund Radiothon

Snowsuit Fund Radiothon

Please support the 1310News for the Snowsuit Fund Radiothon from Sleep Country on DECEMBER 7 from 6am – 6pm!

Every winter in Ottawa children get so excited when that first snowfall happens. To them, snow means skiing, skating, snowball fights and snow angels; to kids, winter means fun! But, for the thousands of children in our communities who may have to face the cold winter without warm clothing, winter means something completely different.


This winter, over 16,000 Snowsuits will be needed to keep children warm. Every $45.00 raised means one less child will be left out in the cold. So tune in, call in and share your warmth with a child.

To donate, call 613-750-1011 on December 7 from 6am-6pm.
