Light of Day Canada has announced Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son as one of the billed acts for its 2014 edition of its annual concert series.
The organization announced the following Tuesday, with a photo as well:
They were so damn good on their 3 day mini-tour of Canada that we just had to bring them back! Opening the show in Niagara & Toronto, Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son!! Bobby will be doing an acoustic set in Kingston!"
Earlier in the day, the organization teased the appearance with the following photo, a callback to the first track on Friends in Low Places:
As noted in the release, the band will play the first two shows on Nov. 6 and Nov. 7 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Toronto and the Greg Frewin Theatre in Niagara Falls, respectively. Bobby will then play solo acoustically at the BLUMartini Bar & Grill on Nov. 8 to close out the leg.
The shows will benefit Parkinson's Disease research, as all Light of Day events do.
"I have been supporting Light of Day for the last three years, in both Canada and New Jersey," Mahoney said. "And I can't wait for the full band to partake in this year's festivities. Such a great string of shows for such a worthy cause. We are very excited."
Prior to Tuesday's announcement, John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band alongside Joe D'Urso & Stone Caravan had been the only acts confirmed thus far for the shows. More acts are expected to be announced shortly.
"The energy we saw at the [Niagara] show was enough to make us want to have them open the Niagara and Toronto shows for Light of Day Canada," David Rotella, head of Light of Day Canada said. "Look out Canada, the New Age Outlaws are coming back across the border - we're just around the corner."
Tickets for all three shows go on sale Aug. 15 through the organization. More information on Light of Day Canada can be found here.
