Big Ticket Summer is back again with another awesome line-up sure to heat up your summer, and more show dates!
Last year’s Big Ticket Summer concert included two sold out shows in Toronto and Calgary with performances from Victoria Duffield, Eleven Past One, Zendaya and R5. This year, Big Ticket Summer not only has an amazing line-up, but also will be visiting the east coast! For the first time ever there will be three Big Ticket Summer concerts! The Halifax Metro Centre is the first stop on August 22nd, followed by the Toronto’s Molson Canadian Amphitheatre on August 23rd, and wrapping up the tour on August 25th is Edmonton’s Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium.
Heating up the stage will be Australian pop sensation Cody Simpson! 17-year-old singer songwriter is no stranger to performing. Opening up for Big Time Rush in 2012 and Justin Bieber in 2013, and headlining his own tours Cody will perform his hits off of his latest album Surfer’s Paradise. Cody Simpson will be sure to add some dancing to his performance and maybe he will even show off some of the new moves he learned when he was a contestant on this season of DANCING WITH THE STARS. Joining Cody on tour is Sabrina Carpenter who plays Maya on the highly anticipated Disney show GIRL MEETS WORLD, which premieres on Family Channel August 1st. Megan Nicole who has over 2 million subscribers on YouTube and currently working on her debut studio album will also join them. Pop rock band, and Toronto natives Crystalyne will be making a special appearance at the Toronto show.
Stringing the show together is Canadian Calum Worthy and the host of all three Big Ticket Summer concerts. Calum is known for his role on AUSTIN & ALLY as Dez, Austin’s goofy best friend, and as the host of his own short series THE COPPERTOP FLOP SHOW. Family Channel’s THE NEXT STEP cast will also hit the Big Ticket Summer stage for the third time with a show stopping dance performance.
Tickets for the show go on sale to the general public Friday June 6th. Family Channel Presale tickets go on sale June 3rd. To access these tickets watch the encore performance of the Big Ticket Summer Concert 2013 on Family Channel at 7:30pm on June 3rd to catch the secret code.
