Two powerhouse headliners have been announced for the 2018 edition of Hogs For Hospice in Leamington. Classic rockers Cheap Trick and country star Randy Houser will perform at the new Seacliff Park Amphitheatre in Leamington on August 3 and 4 respectively.
With more than 20 million records sold and over 5000 live shows, Cheap Trick is among the most active and successful acts in music history with hits like Dream Police, Surrender, I Want You to Want Me and The Flame.
Randy Houser has had five consecutive radio hits, millions of records sold world wide and has co-written many of country music’s biggest hits.
Hogs For Hospice was started in 2016 by a dedicated group of local citizens who had a vision of creating a world-class event that would raise money to support a brand-new Hospice campus and health care centre in Leamington and the surrounding communities.
The Hogs For Hospice board consists of Oswald, Donny Pacheco (Jose’s Bar & Grill), Benji Mastronardi (Double Diamond Farms), Tim Iles (Erie James Marketing), Brian Cornies and Scott Taylor (Speedprint), and Jeanine Lassaline Berglund (Economic Business Development Officer for the Municipality of Leamington). The board is enhanced by 226 Community Ambassadors, who assist with all aspects of the event and ensure everyone is welcomed to Leamington with open arms. Brett Michaels of Poison was the first act to headline the festival in 2016 and Canadian rockers Our Lady Peace performed last year.
Tickets for each show are $25 advance/$30 at the door for general admission lawn tickets and $50 for limited general admission Pit tickets. They can be purchased on the Erie Shores Health Foundation website. More information on Hogs For Hospice can be found on their website.
