PICTOU, N.S. - Multiplatinum award-winning artist Johnny Reid is taking his 2022 Canadian tour to Pictou on June 21. In a May 6 release, organizers said Reid will take his Love Someone: An Intimate Evening with Johnny Reid concert to Pictou’s DeCoste Performing Arts Centre stage at 7:30 p.m. Reid, currently in the middle of his tour, will play over 100 shows from coast to coast. Reid said the pandemic gave him time to reflect on where he wants to spend his time. "I'm really excited to bring this tour to as many places as possible. “I can’t wait to reconnect with all the people that have supported me all of these years in a more intimate concert experience," he said. DeCoste executive director Troy Greencorn said all 400 tickets for the performance are expected to sell quickly. “With Halifax and Cape Breton shows sold out, we are expecting a speedy sellout, with fans coming from all over. To see an artist of Johnny’s profile in our intimate, 400-seat venue is a real treat,” said Greencorn. Reid sold 1.5 million albums and released his 11th studio album, Love Someone, on Oct. 15 through Universal Music Canada. He has also earned 26 Canadian Country Music Awards, six JUNO Awards and sold-out multiple national arena tours.
