Canadian Rock icon Kim Mitchell has sung those lines from his personal mission statement, “Rock N Roll Duty” for decades now and he’s still doing exactly that, creative energy and enthusiasm fully intact. For Mitchell, that’s what it’s all about, not the money, not the fame nor the gold and platinum on the wall…
Kim Mitchell has achieved gold and multiplatinum sales status over a long and storied career, starting early on as leader of the musically influential and eclectic Max Webster ( 5 albums), with hits in the late 70’s like “Diamonds Diamonds” and “High Class in Borrowed Shoes”.
Kim Mitchell has won three Juno Awards and a SOCAN Award for his certified hit, “Patio Lanterns”. He is a gifted and peer-respected guitar player as well as an acclaimed songwriter, having penned and recorded numerous classic hits including “Go For Soda”, “Rock N Roll Duty”, “Patio Lanterns”, “I am a Wild Party”, “Easy To Tame” and “All We Are”, all songs that have become part of the Canadian musical genome.
Mitchell has the respect of peers, fans, and industry types alike. The Regent Theatre is pleased to welcome this Canadian rock legend back to the Regent Theatre, to kick off the Canadian Classic Rock Series for 2018!
