Another legendary Canadian group is coming to the Peach Festival stage.
Barney Bentall will join the Legendary Hearts on stage for the first time in two years as one of the headlining acts of the Penticton Peach Festival on Aug. 5.
The last time the two joined forces was in 2013, playing to a capacity crowd in Vancouver at the Commodore Ballroom.
One of the most popular rock groups in Canada for over a decade, Barney Bentall and the Legendary Hearts broke on to the scene in 1988 with their first top ten single Something to Live For.
The group also won a Juno award for their self-titled album which spawned three hit singles and achieved platinum status.
Three of their subsequent albums went gold and included singles like Crime Against Love, Come Back To Me, Do Ya and Life Could Be Worse.
Bentall has recently been working on solo projects, but gets back together with the Legendary Hearts occasionally since the group disbanded in 1997.
“What a thrill to have them coming to Peach Festival,” Bill Kolter, Peach Festival entertainment director said in a press release. “It might be the only chance you have to see them together this year, or for several years. And thanks to Tim Hortons, there is no admission charge.”
Peach Festival begins on Aug. 5 and runs until Aug. 9. For more information visit www.peachfest.com.
