Arkells to play Prospera

From their humble beginnings in Hamilton, Ont., Canada's rising stars The Arkells will be making their way through Kelowna in early 2019.

The band, who were last out West when they headlined Vancouver's Skookum Festival in September, announced their latest Canada tour Friday, coinciding with the release of the album Rally Cry.

Since the release of their first album Jackson Square in 2008, The Arkells popularity has steadily grown.

In June, the band played to 24,000 people at Tim Hortons Field in their hometown of Hamilton, and the lead up to the show was profiled by the Globe and Mail, introducing the high-energy, pop rock band to a wider audience.

They last played Kelowna in 2013 at the now defunct Keloha festival

The group is currently in the middle of packed touring schedule, taking them through America and then on to Europe until the end of November.

The band will have a couple months of rest before taking off on their Canadian tour, starting in Vancouver on Feb. 2, followed by Victoria on Feb. 3, before making their way to Kelowna's Prospera Place on Feb. 5.

The tour will take them east across Canada, for a total of 11 shows over 18 days.

“We’ve built up real relationships with all of these towns over the year,” said frontman Max Kerman in a press release. “Each time we go back, the show means a little bit more. It’s our most ambitious tour yet, and we can’t wait to make some new memories.”

Lord Huron, based out of Los Angeles, Calif., will be opening the shows on the Canadian tour.

Tickets for the Kelowna show will go on sale on Oct. 26 at 10 a.m on Ticketmaster.
