Reid's revival rocks!

Concert-goers got the full spectrum Tuesday night from Scottish-Canadian singer Johnny Reid as he brought his Revival tour to Kelowna's Prospera Place.

Often thought of as a country singer, Reid provided a full-on R&B performance with a 13-piece big band opening with Soul Train, the lead track off his latest album.

Mid-show, Reid was joined on stage by Canadian icons Glass Tiger, who performed a medley of their hits, including Don't Forget Me When I'm Gone and My Town.

Lead Singer Alan Frew, also Scottish-Canadian, met Reid several years ago at the Juno Awards, joking with Reid's mother that her son was the second-best Canadian-Scottish country singer. Reid said the two became fast friends, resulting in him spending the past six months producing Glass Tiger's new album, 31.

Up and coming singer-songwriter Jessica Mitchell of Toronto opened the show, and later joined Reid for a new ballad, Whiskey Kisses.

The talkative and energetic Reid shared a number of stories of family, bandmates and life on the road.

He pared down the band to just guitar and fiddle to perform some of his biggest hits, including Dance With Me, and A Woman Like You.

Reid surprised two young people in the front row at the end of the show, bringing them on stage to sing along to his smash hit Darlin'.

Reid moves on to Prince George on Thursday night before the tour heads to Alberta.
