Classified’s fans have spoken loud and clear and as a result, Classified is rescheduling his Sydney concert, originally slated for this coming Saturday, November 12 at the Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion for 19 years and older, to December 3rd at the Bi-Centennial Gym and making it an All Ages Show.
Since tickets for the show went up on sale, many comments on Facebook wanted to see the concert open to all age like it is in Halifax. The venue in Sydney is not allowed to have an All Ages show and as a result, the show must be moved to another venue (the Bi-Centennial Gym).
“We are coming to Sydney to perform in front of our fans and our fans have spoken very loud and clear that they want an all ages show and that is what we are going to do,” says Classified.
Tickets for the November 12th show will still be honoured for the December 3rd show but refunds are available at the original point of purchase. The December 3rd show tickets are on sale now at Pharmasave in Sydney and Glace Bay, Caper Convenience at CBU and online at ticketpro.ca.
Classified has recently been asked to be the opening act of Hedley’s national tour which kicks off in March 2012.
Handshakes and Middle Fingers is a musical hip-hop album about balance. Through boom-bap beats, catchy choruses and dirty drums, Classified uses his unparalleled wit, lyrics and diction to examine the fine line between mainstream success and the underground. This is, without a doubt, the Classified album that fans have been waiting to hear.
Classified has sold more than 70,000 records and been the recipient of 4 (nominated for 10) East Coast Music Awards and was nominated in 2009 for a Juno. “I like to make music that feels good, something that someone who listens to top-40 would like, but I’m always going to have lyrics that say something,” says Classified. “As an artist, my lyrics are who I am.”
“I still live in the same town where I grew up, I still have the same friends, and I still listen to the same music that I once did,” says Classified. “I didn’t get involved with any of this to become a rap star. I’m more about a hard-hitting beat and lyrics than ever wanting to become a celebrity.”
Tickets are $30 (service charges included) and are available online at www.ticketpro.ca, by phone, 1-888-311-9090 or at Pharmasave in Sydney and Glace Bay or Capers Convenience.
