Our Lady Peace delivers exceptional performance to kick off City Centre McMurray Half Marathon Weekend
(Fort McMurray, AB, September 13, 2013) - Playing on an outdoor stage in front of a wildly appreciative audience Canadian rock icons and four-time Juno Award winners Our Lady Peace presented by Rock 97.9 brought MacDonald Island Park to life as they officially opened the City Centre McMurray Half Marathon weekend.
Drawing on a set list that contained classics such as “Innocent”, Our Lady Peace energized the crowd and opened a full weekend of activities at MacDonald Island Park and downtown Fort McMurray that will see Community Registration Day presented by Syncrude on Saturday, the City Centre McMurray Half Marathon on Sunday, and a free performance by Sloan presented by Rock 97.9.
“When Our Lady Peace performed here in 2011 they delivered an experience that fans still talk about, and that performance was a major factor in the decision to bring them back this year,” said Tim Reid, Chief Operating Officer at MacDonald Island Park and Chief Executive Officer of the Regional Recreation Corporation. “Our Lady Peace has an ability to connect with people of all ages, which makes them a perfect fit for a community with such diversity. They certainly showed why they are Canadian legends.”
