1997 was an epic year. The Simpsons was named the longest-running prime-time animated series, Steve Jobs returned to Apple and Tiger Woods became the youngest golfer to ever win the Masters. In Canada, fans of award-winning The Tea Party were celebrating the release of the band’s fourth studio album, Transmission.
Equally as epic, this album reached #3 on the Canadian charts, earned double platinum status in Canada and received a 1998 JUNO Award nomination for “Blockbuster Rock Album of the Year.” Its no wonder that, 20 years later, the band has confirmed that it will embark on a large-scale tour to celebrate the anniversary of this hit record.
Seeing The Tea Party perform Transmission in its entirety, this national tour will kick-off on February 3 in St. Catharines (ON) and will see the band wind its way through 28 cities before landing in Seattle, WA on April 4. Joined by special guests The Road Heavy in a handful of markets, each show of the #TX20 tour will culminate with a set of greatest hits certain to deliver the energy and drive that The Tea Party have been known to bring since 1990.
Fans wishing to celebrate the 20th anniversary alongside the band can purchase tickets via smarturl.it/TX20 on October 28th. VIP ticket packages – The #TX20 VIP Party – are available now and include a meet & greet photo opportunity with the band along with a Tea Party draw-string backpack, a Transmission commemorative coffee table book, souvenir VIP laminate, 5X7 lithograph and a 5X7 glossy Transmission-era photo.
