Niagara Falls, ON – The Niagara Parks Commission and the City of Niagara Falls, along with its Niagara Falls New Year's Eve event partners, invite the public to join the celebrations and be part of one of Canada’s longest running New Year’s Eve festivities and concert series, taking place in Queen Victoria Park.
The outdoor celebrations kick off at 8:30 p.m. and will include Juno Award winning, multi-platinum musical phenomenon, Walk Off the Earth. After facing a major and unexpected loss with the sudden death of band member Mike “Beard Guy” Taylor last year, Walk Off the Earth is back and plan to use this opportunity to honour and share the extraordinary legacy that Mike left behind.
The band has a new hit song “I’ll Be There”, which is not only climbing up the US and Canadian charts, but also making big waves overseas. Their new album, “Here We Go” will be released through Sony on October 25, 2019 and has already been heralded as their best work yet.
Headlining this year’s concert and joining guests in ringing in the New Year will be one of the most exciting live musicians in the world - Bryan Adams. With an influence that has spanned four decades, his song writing has garnered him numerous awards and accolades including three Academy Award nominations, five Golden Globe nominations and a Grammy Award.
Adams has released 14 studio albums and his most recent recording “Shine a Light”, whose title track was co-written by Ed Sheeran, debuted at number one on the albumcharts in March of 2019. The album also features a duet with Jennifer Lopez. A singer, songwriter, record producer, photographer, philanthropist and activist, Adams continues to tour the globe playing his big ballads and iconic rock and roll hits which have become mainstays on rock radio.
The free outdoor celebration will feature two fireworks displays, as well as a variety of food and beverage options, including an outdoor licensed area. The first fireworks show, sponsored by Tim Hortons, is set to take place at 9:15 p.m., while the second show, set off from the Skylon Tower, will ring in the New Year as the clock strikes midnight.
