Stars Will Shine As Moon vs Sun Come To Shell Theatre

 

The moon and sun; while drastically different in so many ways they are essential to each other and tend to coexist in the universe. This is similar to the dynamic duo of Chantal Kreviazuk and Raine Maida who will perform as Moon vs Sun on February 6th at the Shell Theatre.

While both musicians started their careers on a different path they both have enjoyed phenomenal success in the music business with multiple Juno wins and nominations. It was ultimately this road in music that set both artists on a collision course for each other (they are husband and wife) and a collaboration over a decade in the making.

Maida, as many may know is the front man and lead singer for Our Lady Peace, one of Canada’s most successful rock groups and are known for songs such as Naveed, Supermans Dead, 4am, Somewhere Out There etc. Kreviazuk really made a splash internationally when her rendition of Leaving On a Jet Plane was featured on the Armageddon Soundtrack, but has had many hit songs like Before You, Feels Like Home, All I Can Do and more recently Into Me.

Now you get to see these two incredible artists unite in one stellar show that will feature truth, emotion, sincerity, and stories of longevity and commitment to each other while both were challenged in managing successful music careers while balancing their marriage and children.

See Kreviazuk and Maida like never before as they will perform and experiment with this new musical journey while performing many of those past favorites you have come to know and love, but in a way you have never experienced before.

Don’t miss out on what is sure to be one of Shell Theatre’s most memorable shows of the season, Moon vs Sun with Chantal Kreviazuk and Raine Maida.

Tickets on sale now at www.ticketpro.ca or the Shell Theatre Box Office.

Here is one of their first songs together titled “I Love It When You Make Me Beg”.

Leaving On a Jet Plane

Into Me

Superman’s Dead

Somewhere Out There

Tune in during the Morning Show with Tony Stacey starting on Monday, February 1st for clips from a phone interview with Kreviazuk and Maida about Moon vs Sun.

On February 3rd and 4th after 7am on the show, listen for your cue to call to WIN 1 of 2 pairs of tickets to see the show. 780 998 1079
