Alan Doyle headlines two 2018 ECMA Big Ticket concerts on Friday, May 4 and Saturday, May 5. These special ECMA events feature Doyle performing with his full band and take place at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront. They are open to concert-goers of all ages, though patrons under the age of 19 must be accompanied by an adult or legal guardian. Both concerts feature special guests Fortunate Ones.

Alan Doyle is an iconic Newfoundland singer-songwriter, best-selling author, actor and recent recipient of the Order of Canada. His latest album, A Week At The Warehouse, was recorded live off the floor with Doyle’s band and legendary producer Bob Rock at the helm. The album is chock-a-block with country-tinged, radio-ready tunes that carry Doyle’s signature blend of traditional and modern flavours.

Doyle was the lead singer of well-known Canadian band Great Big Sea, known for fusing traditional Newfoundland music with their own pop sensibilities. Their nine albums, double-disc hits retrospective, and two DVD releases have all been declared Gold or Platinum and have sold a combined 1.2 million copies in Canada. His third solo album continues to cement Doyle’s reputation as one of our country’s most treasured musicians and storytellers.

Tickets for the 2018 ECMA Big Ticket are $45 (taxes & fees included) and are on sale Friday, September 29 at 10:00am AST. Please note that wristbands, Weekend Warrior wristbands, festival passes, and VIP passes do not provide entry to the 2018 ECMA Big Ticket.
