Tom Cochrane with Red Rider and Chantal Kreviazuk are just some of the artists who headline the re-opening line-up at Meaford Hall in 2022. The performing arts centre announced its full lineup this week, which includes some big names, some tributes, as well as several shows rescheduled from 2020.
“It was wonderful to finally be able to plan for a return to live music,” said Manager Susan Lake. “The last two years have been devastating to the performance industry but the patrons have told us repeatedly they are ready to return as soon as possible!”
In addition to new shows, Lake has rescheduled shows from 2020 that were cancelled at the beginning of the pandemic. Several of these are at or near sold out capacity, as many patrons chose to retain their tickets to ensure they won’t miss the event.
There are COVID protocols in place at the venue, including all patrons requiring masks and showing proof of full vaccination at the door. Tickets must be purchased in advance of the show, with no walk-up sales, to limit lineups as well as ensure all patrons provide contact information.
In addition to Cochrane and Kreviazuk, the Hall is presenting a variety of performers including CBC veteran comedian Steve Patterson, The Arrogant Worms, Sarah Harmer, and Tapestry, the Carole King Songbook.
