Hadfield flies to Vernon on Canada 150 tour

Canada’s first space commander is celebrating the nation in story and song in Vernon May 14

First it was the Barenaked Ladies, now Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield is slated to make his way to Vernon as part of the Canada 150 celebrations.

Canada’s first space commander is celebrating the nation in story and song when he visits the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre May 14 at 8 p.m.

Col. Hadfield will share a selection of stories, images, songs and ideas that celebrate the 150th birthday of the nation he is so proud to call home. From his unique perspective, Hadfield looks at the history and future of Canada through its people and the land itself.

Performing songs like his fun-loving, patriotic single In Canada to his evocative Beyond the Terra, which looks away from the land to the skies, Hadfield ties his presentation together with stories of great Canadians and tales from his incredible career.

Suitable for fans big, small, and in-between, Hadfield customizes his performance to each audience, and leaves everyone with the sense that Canada truly is “out of this world.”

Tickets to see Hadfield in Vernon go on sale Friday, March 17 at 10 a.m. and are available at the Ticket Seller box office, or charge by phone at 250-549-7469. Cost is $77.25 (all seats), reserved seating, all ages.
