Paisley sells out again (tickets-wise that is, in Canada)
Monday, January 31, 2011
– Brad Paisley took his H2O Frozen Over Tour to eastern Canada this past weekend and played to sellout crowds in London, Hamilton, Montreal and Ottawa.
More than 40,000 tickets were sold for the 4 shows. One of the highlights of the weekend was playing the Bell Centre in Montreal on Saturday, the first time Paisley had ever played Montreal and all advertising and promotion for the show had been done in French.
Another highlight of the weekend happened last night in Ottawa. Carrie Underwood and husband, Mike Fisher, who plays for the Ottawa Senators hockey team, joined Paisley on his final encore, Alcohol.
The H2O Tour is on an upcoming Modern Marvels - American Trucking show that airs on the History Channel this Friday, Feb. 4 at 8 p.m. central. This episode of Modern Marvels explores the diverse world of American trucking and the men and women behind it. The show followed Paisley and his crew on the road between Little Rock, Ark. and Tulsa, Okla. last November and shows behind the scenes of what it takes to move a huge production from one city to another in a few short hours.
H2O Frozen Over will take a break this week and then hits the road again Feb. 10 in Atlanta.

Nevertheless, Paisley in concert and captured on ...
Brad Paisley has grown up on his eighth album. Yes, the West Virginian maintains a sense of humor, but apparently aging has left its mark on a maturing singer who has never forsaken his country roots. That is ever so apparent in songs like Anything Like Me and Oh Yeah, You're Gone. The former finds Paisley looking at the passage of time through his son's life in a tender, but not sappy look. On the latter, he's a five-year-old boy who doesn't get what he wants, which his grandfather notices. ...
