Capitol Centre Bluesfest Presents: 


Opener: Caley Campbell and the Cadillacs

The Capitol Centre's 2023 Bluesfest kicks off with a fundraising concert by Glass Tiger! Enjoy music by Bear Claw Bob as he entertains patrons when they arrive.

The proceeds we make from the Glass Tiger concert, along with government grants, makes it possible for us to host the outdoor concerts at no cost to those wishing to attend.


About Glass Tiger: Originally known as Tokyo, the band formed in Newmarket, Ontario in 1981 and spent several years cutting their teeth in the bar scene of the day. With rapidly growing popularity, it didn’t take long for all the major record labels to come courting, culminating in their signing of a world-wide recording deal with Capitol Records in 1985.

Changing their name to Glass Tiger, their debut album, The Thin Red Line quickly became an unstoppable force, rocketing up the charts to become the fastest selling debut in Canadian history, spawning no less than five hit singles.

Grammy nominated and five-time award winners of both The Junos and Canadian Classic, the band has shared stages and recording performances with some of the world’s leading acts including; Rod Stewart, Tina Turner, Bryan Adams, Journey, Julian Lennon, and Cheap Trick (to name a few).
