Collective Soul 'Counting the Days' to New Year's Eve
Niagara Falls, ON - The Winter Festival of Lights is pleased to
announce that the Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort will become the
presenting sponsor of its nationally televised New Year's Eve Concert
The outdoor party, which attracts upwards of 50,000 people, will
ring in the New Year from the Main Stage in Queen Victoria Park
with Georgia-based rockers, Collective Soul. The event will be televised
live across Canada on the CHTV/Global network.
"The New Year's Eve Concert Extravaganza with Collective Soul
is going to be the best New Year's bash in Canada," said Anthony
Annunziata, Executive Director, Marketing, Fallsview Casino. "Whether
you come on down to the concert or watch the fun and excitement
on TV, Canadians from coast to coast will be able to join the party
that Fallsview Casino is presenting."
In what will surely be the best New Year's Eve event in Niagara
Falls yet, Collective Soul is preparing for a fantastic show, which
will surely include numbers from its newest album, Youth.
Counting the Days, the lead single from Youth has been met with
great success and the band loves to belt it out as it "represents
Collective Soul, it rocks!" Ed Roland, lead vocalist says.
Other songs on the new album include Under Heaven's Skies, How Do
You Love, Better Now and Home. The songs represent the changes,
challenges and growth that the band has gone through in the last
four years. "I want people to feel the good energy, the good
place that we are in. I think that a lot of these songs represent
that," mentioned guitarist Dean Roland.
Joining Collective Soul for the New Year's Eve Concert Extravaganza
is the Niagara-based rock band The Trews. Hailing from Nova Scotia,
the band moved to the area three years ago and has since received
numerous accolades including a Juno nomination for best new artist,
a MuchMucic Video Award nomination, and being named the best Recording
Artist of the Year by the Canadian Organization of Campus Activities.
