Another big announcement from Weyburn native, Brayden King who will be performing at the Labour Day Classic when the Saskatchewan Roughriders take on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Mosaic Stadium on September 3.
Given this is the biggest and most celebrated game of the year, this will also be King’s largest live audience to date, with an expected audience of over 33,000 people.
King shares how he managed to score such a remarkable gig.
“I had some friends that played the game last year. They're a Saskatchewan-based rock band called Dead Levee and I am good friends with them. They invited me as a VIP to the game when they played. And I basically just asked for the contact and passed it along to my agent and my agent reached out and we've had it set up for quite a few months now but wasn't able to announce it until just a couple of days ago. So, it's been in the works for quite some time and it’s super, super exciting.”
King is set to perform just before the game is scheduled to begin and his set is expected to last around 12 minutes.
With King's music career on full speed ahead, he shared that he's travelling and touring on the road about 50 percent of the time and the other half he spends at his home in Lethbridge. He shares more on what fans can look forward to for the rest of the year.
“We're working on a bunch of more tour dates across all of Canada for the remainder of this year and especially some really big plans for next year. So just keep an eye out for where you can see me playing around Saskatchewan.”
King will be performing again in Regina on Thursday, September 7 at the Revival Music Room, and Weyburn’s own; Dan Cugnet will also be performing.
