band is still going strong nearly ten years into their existence. The band has toured internationally and scored big hits
in both Canada and the United States. Their intense and catchy songs have won over millions of fans all over the world who
are always eager to get their hands on tickets to their shows the minute they go on sale. You may have heard their music and

December 20th at Hard Rock Casino Vancouver and will see them hitting up all of the major cities across the country. From
February 14th through 16th they will play three consecutive nights at different venues in different cities in British Columbia

Hedley play eight shows all throughout Ontario which will carry them into March. The tour continues through April and concludes
on the 12th at Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre for a hometown show in Abbotsford, British Columbia.
Early on in the history of Hedley, the other band members bet lead singer Jacob Hoggard 150 dollars that he
would not be able to place in the top three of Canadian Idol. Hoggard ended up placing third and winning the bet, in the process
earning a lot of attention for the band. In 2005 they released their self-titled debut which produced several hit singles
and scored the band a lot of airplay on Much Music. The following year the band signed to Capitol Records in the United States
and earned an opening spot on Yellowcard's tour. Their second album, Famous Last Words was released in 2007 and produced even
more hit singles on its way to going platinum. 2009 saw the release of Stronger Me, a singles compilation that was released
in the United States. The band has released several singles, the singles compilation, a live album, Go with the Show, and
five studio albums: Hedley, Famous Last Words/Never Too Late, The Show Must Go, Storms, and 2013's Wild Life. They continue
to tour and record new material and stand as one of the premiere pop punk acts in the world.
releasing their self-titled debut, Hedley got an immediate taste of success. Their first single On My Own hit number one on
the Canadian Singles Chart and that and two other singles, Trip and Gunnin' all reached the top spot on the Much Music Countdown.
Hedley had clearly established themselves as one of Canada's most popular rock bands and were ready to take the rest of the
world by storm. After signing with Capitol Records Hedley was able to achieve a breakthrough in the United States, first by
touring with Yellowcard and then by releasing their second album, Famous Last Words, this time with the support of Capitol
Records. More tours in Canada and the United States followed and the band continued to establish themselves as a mainstay
on the pop punk scene.
You have been waiting for months for this night to come and finally
as the lights lower you begin to see the incredible Hedley making their way out onto the stage. The crowd erupts in applause
as the quartet ready their instruments and prepare to belt out the first jam. A hush falls over the crowd as the band thanks
them and launches into a fan favorite off of any of their hit albums including Hedley, Famous Last Words/Never Too Late, The
Show Must Go, Storms, and Wild Life. The crowd once again erupts and sings and dances along to hits throughout the night.
Always one to surprise the crowd, perhaps Hedley sprinkles in some new songs throughout the set, or maybe even plays a surprise
cover song. The high energy output from the band translates perfectly to the crowd and you spend the entire night dancing
and singing along.

to a crowd numbering in the millions. From that moment forward they were a globally recognized band and one of Canada's proudest
