The Cooper Brothers 50th Anniversary with Special Guests
Presented by Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe
Any country fan would have heard of this band! Canada’s premiere country/southern rock band from the ‘70s through the mid ‘80s, the Cooper Brothers were founded right here in Ottawa, by brothers Brian and Dick Cooper and their long-time friend, Terry “T.K.” King 50 years ago! Now it’s time to celebrate their impressive career as a band, with a special anniversary show featuring some of their greatest hits and fan favourites!
Hometown heroes and internationally acclaimed country-rockers, the Cooper Brothers are set to celebrate their 50-year Anniversary with a special performance at Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe.
With such classic hits as “The Dream Never Dies”, “Rock 'n Roll Cowboys”, “Know Her When I See Her” and “Show Some Emotion”, the Cooper Brothers made a worldwide impact when they signed a major deal with legendary American label, Capricorn Records (The Allman Brothers/Marshall Tucker/Delbert McClinton), hitting the Billboard Hot 100 charts both here in Canada and in the States.
The Cooper Brothers will be performing a wide-ranging retrospective of their repertoire including much loved hits, and both fan and band favourites – new and old.
The band will be joined on stage by some VERY SPECIAL GUESTS to follow up their two previously SOLD OUT shows in our theatre.
At the height of their career, the band toured extensively throughout North America, opening for such diverse artists as The Doobie Brothers, James Taylor, Joe Cocker, Little Feat and Atlanta Rhythm Section.
Don’t miss the legendary Cooper Brothers for a nostalgic night of great music!!
