Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings announce 17-date Canadian tour

For the second time in only a year, former The Guess Who bandmates Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings have made plans to go back out on tour.

The ‘Together Again’ tour was announced on Monday, through an official Live Nation press release, and will see the Winnipeg-born duo play 17 shows across 17 different cities in Canada this summer.

On June 11, the rock veterans kick things off in Windsor, Ont., before concluding seven weeks later in Montreal, on July 29. Along the way, the duo will hit cities like Regina, Sask., Medicine Hat, Alta., Toronto and their hometown.

Not only will Bachman, 76, and Cummings, 72, perform some of their biggest solo hits, but they’ll celebrate much of the words for The Guess Who’s extensive back-catalogue, as well as Bachman-Turner Overdrive‘s.

On touring “together again,” Bachman said, “We are having more fun now.”

He continued: “There is a lot of love and respect for each other. Working together with Burton again musically is like riding a bike, easy and fun, but with everyone clapping along as we do it.”
