The ALARM – RickSHAW Theatre, Vancouver


It is just over a couple of weeks until one of the greatest bands to come out of Rhyl (😊) hits the stage in Vancouver.  The Alarm will be in town at the Rickshaw Theatre on October 30th, as part of the second leg of their North America tour. This will be only one of two opportunities for fans in Canada to catch up with the band, with the other being the last night of the tour on November 15th in Toronto.

In trying to track down the last time the band played here, it looks to be close to 30 years, so this show is long overdue. The band performed at the expo in 1988, having previously supported Pat Benatar at the Pacific Coliseum.

The band are currently touring following the release of the latest album, Equals, which was released to critical acclaim by the music industry and fans alike.

Tickets for the show can be bought at Ticketfly

The latest video from this album, “Transatlantic” was released a few days ago, with the video having been filmed on the roof of the Live Nation building in New York earlier in the year.

One lucky fan will have a chance to sing on stage with Mike at the show.

The Alarm have always been about being close to their fans, and this tour is no exception, with fans having the chance to join Mike Peters and the band on stage for the encore of the set. Each stop on the tour has an auction running, and any winning bid over $500 will also see the winner receiving a hand decorated guitar, which they can play during the encore…

Proceeds from the auction will go to Mike’s charity Love Hope Strength.  The charity, which Mike Peters co-founded in 2007, has the aim of Saving lives – One Concert at a time, focusing on making cancer treatments available to all, and getting as many bone marrow donors on international donation lists through sign up events at music events.  Find out more at https://www.lovehopestrength.org/mission/
