Colin James Streaming Commodore Concerts And Helping Food Bank

You are here

Vancouver singer, songwriter and musician Colin James will help his hometown’s Commodore Ballroom celebrate its 90th birthday while raising money for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank with two live-streamed performances on Dec. 3.

James released his self-titled debut album in 1988, and 15 studio albums have followed since then. The 56-year-old rock and blues artist has won seven Juno Awards and his hits include “Five Long Years,” “Voodoo Thing,” “Just Came Back” and “Saviour.”

“The Commodore Ballroom is simply one of the best live music venues in North America, bar none,” said James on a Live From Inside web page where tickets for the performance can be purchased. “Places like this are increasingly rare and an irreplaceable part of any city's entertainment history.

“It has been the Vancouver choice for established and breaking bands for years, and has played a huge role throughout my career. I am so profoundly happy that my star on the B.C. Walk of Fame is only steps from its iconic doors! I can't wait to play there again soon, and I hope to ‘virtually’ see you there!”

James will return to the Commodore Ballroom for the 33rd time to perform songs from his upcoming album along with past favourites. The first Dec. 3 show will be at noon PT (3 p.m. EST), with the second one following at 6 p.m. PT (9 p.m. EST). Tickets cost $18 and one dollar from each one sold will be donated to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.

The Greater Vancouver Food Bank was established in 1983 and provides assistance to approximately 8,500 people each week. It purchases and distributes almost five million pounds of food each year to individuals and about 80 community agencies, including housing agencies, women and children’s shelters, and after-school programs.
