KAMLOOPS - The Sam Roberts Band is returning to Kamloops in February for the only remaining B.C. Interior performance of the Lo-Fantasy tour.
The latest album, Lo-Fantasy, is described as the most wide-ranging collection Sam Roberts has ever written, infusing his particularly rousing brand of rock and roll with elements of funk, house, electronic, and African music.
“Low fantasy is a literary genre that takes place in a world very much like our own, but in which magic – or the possibility of magic – exists,” Roberts says about the album. “It’s grounded in reality, but it’s an altered reality. You can still ride a train to Alberta, but there’s a place for the supernatural in this otherwise rational world – it’s out there and we haven’t tapped into it yet.”
The Juno award-winning band played in Kelowna last week and will return to the Interior on Feb. 26 to play at the Interior Savings Centre in Kamloops before playing two shows in Vancouver.
The pre-sale starts Wednesday, Nov. 19 with tickets on sale to the general public Friday at noon.
