There's a lot of entertainment coming to Medicine Hat stages in 2017 as both the Medicine Hat Exhibition and Stampede and the Canalta Centre each had big announcements earlier this week about high profile acts coming to southeast Alberta in 2017.


The Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede announced the lineup for the Night Show performances at the 130th Stampede next year.
On July 26, The Stampeders, 54-40 and Glass Tiger will take the stage for a Canadian classic rock showcase concert. Country-rock band Blue Rodeo performs July 27 and country-pop trio The Band Perry closes out the Stampede July 30.
The Stampeders, who are originally from Calgary, made their name in the 1970s with multiple hits, including Sweet City Woman, Keep Me Running Wild, and Hit The Road Jack. 54-40, who call Vancouver home, are best known for Ocean Pearl and I Go Blind, while Ontario’s Glass Tiger made waves with their hits Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone) and I’m Still Searching.
Blue Rodeo, who formed in Toronto in 1984, have released 15 studio albums and are known for their hits Lost Together, Try, and Til I am Myself Again. Their most recent album, 1,000 Arms, was released in October.
The Band Perry, consisting of siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry, burst onto the scene in 2010 on the strength of their No. 1 If I Die Young, and built their popularity on other hit singles, including Chainsaw, Better Dig Two and Done. The band has won a Grammy Award, two Country Music Association Awards and three Academy of Country Music Awards.
A ticket package for all three night shows went on sale Dec. 6. It includes admission to the grounds, costs $150, and available at the Stampede Office, at http://www.mhstampede.com and at the Medicine Hat Mall guest services desk.
Tickets for individual shows will be available early in 2017.

Larry The Cable Guy and Jeff Foxworthy coming to Med. Hat
RFD -TV is teaming up with comedians Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy to bring the We’ve Been Thinking Tour to Medicine Hat.
Superstar comedians Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy will reunite on the We’ve Been Thinking Tour to bring an unforgettable night of comedy to Canalta Centre. Both comedians will deliver a laughter-packed evening of all new material before they come together on stage for an uproarious encore you won’t want to miss.
“RFD-TV is so very proud to be the presenting sponsor for Jeff and Larry’s upcoming comedy tour. Their values match up so well with RFD-TV’s goals as we both strive to provide family-oriented entertainment from a rural perspective. We look forward to using this opportunity to work with our cable partners in each of these cities to expand rural programming in our continuing effort to reconnect city with country again.  Humor is a great way to do that,” said Patrick Gottsch, CEO and Founder of RFD-TV.
Foxworthy is one of the most respected and successful comedians in the U.S. He is the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and bestselling author of more than 26 books. Widely known for his redneck jokes, his act goes well beyond that to explore the humour in everyday family interactions and human nature, a style that has been compared to Mark Twain’s. He recently launched his own comedy channel “Jeff and Larry’s Comedy Roundup,” a partnership with SIRIUSXM and Larry the Cable Guy.
Larry the Cable Guy is a multiplatinum recording artist, Grammy nominee and Billboard award winner. He has his own line of merchandise and continues to sell out theatres and arenas across the United States. He is the spokesman for Prilosec OTC and most recently launched his own comedy channel on SIRIUSXM with Foxworthy.
Tickets were to go on sale Dec. 9 at 10 a.m. online at Ticketmaster.ca, charge by phone 1-855-985-5000 or in-person at the Canalta Centre Box Office.
