Oh Canadaaaaaa!!!!

We have another AMAZING piece of news for you guys!

Here’s a small hint - The Boxtones Canucks are celebrating their heritage and revelling in this cool announcement!

You may be aware that a rather famous Canadian shall be visiting our shores, guitar in hand and ready to croon his little face off to the Dubai Massive! He’s probably going to “Run to You” and has been quoted as saying “I Do It For You’ which just goes to prove that his music comes “Straight from The Heart” and is “All for Love”. If you can get hold of some tickets then “Let’s Make this a Night to Remember” because you’re sure to be on “Cloud Number 9” when he hits the stage. Ok sorry I’ll stop now, although it’s so hard because I “Can’t Stop This Thing We Started”!

Yes, yes that’s enough! I know!

So if you didn’t know, you do now. Mr Bryan Adams is in da house and The Boxtones will be there to welcome him through the door!

We’ve done it again folks and snagged an awesome gig opening for Mr. Adams on the 9th of March 2017. Get your tickets as it’s going to be an epic gig at Dubai Autism Rocks Arena. We are so excited about this one and can’t wait to play alongside another great musical icon. We really feel privileged and the Canadian Boxtones are proud to host their fellow countryman on the big stage!

Now talking of icons, we are bursting at the seams to tell you where we were last Tuesday. You will no doubt be aware that the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships ran from the 27th of February right up until the 4th of March. And as a result we found ourselves entertaining some of the world’s greatest tennis stars, including fellow Scot and World Champion Andy Murray. We mingled with legends such as Roger Federer, Stan Wawrinka, Gael Monfils, Thomas Berdych and Malek Jaziri amongst others and managed to bag a much-coveted photo with the man of the game himself. Since my mother is somewhat obsessed with Mr. Murray I felt it my daughterly duty to ensure I had a picture and a chat with her very favourite Tennis champ. It was a brilliant star-studded night and we had the best time sipping bubbles with the elites of tennis. It was definitely a night we won’t forget in a hurry.

Lastly, in between all that hobnobbing we managed to turn a 2-day Boxtones work trip to Oman in to a rare day of down time. Both Pat and I left the other half of the sleepy-Tones and went off exploring Muscat Palace, Fort and Port and we have to say to anyone planning a trip, just go. What an incredible place full of mountains, smiley faces and greenery. The pace there is definitely more relaxed and if you need anymore proof of that then here is our lovely workaholic Mr. Gary Tierney actually donning shorts and bobbing poolside enjoying a mini break away from his Macbook! Miracles do happen folks!

What a week we’ve had! Ok so just to recap – Andy Murray, Omani swims and only MR BRYAN ADAMS on the 9th of March at The Dubai Autism Rocks Arena!  There may still be time to get your tickets, so go grab them quick before you miss out and come see us open up for Canada’s finest!

Until next time!

Peace Out
