Blind Melon and Soul Asylum will hit the stage in Penticton in the spring.

Along with special guest Bif Naked, Blind Melon and Soul Asylum will take to the South Okanagan Events Centre stage on Wednesday, April 15, 2020, as part of “The Way Up Here” tour.

Blind Melon is returning to both stage and studio two and a half decades after the release of their first album, according to a media release.

The band has new members and new material to accompany its breakout single “No Rain,” one of the most unforgettable music videos of the 90s.

Soul Asylum is celebrating nearly four decades in the music business since the band formed in 1981.

The band’s 1992 "Grave Dancers Union" and 1995’s "Let Your Dim Light Shine" scored a platinum breakthrough for the band. Since then the 2006 release of "The Silver Lining" and 2018’s "Live from Liberty Lunch" has earned the band a loyal following and critical acclaim.

Rock star, writer and humanitarian Bif Naked continues to push the boundaries of acceptability with her unmuzzled, screaming loud presentation. Her live performances have established her as one of the most acclaimed and interesting entertainers on the rock stage.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 8 at 10 a.m. and are available online at
