It’s Johnny Cash night in Portage la Prairie June 19 as the cross Canada “The Ring Of Fire: A Johnny Cash Experience” rolls into town on its Legion Support Tour.
The critically acclaimed tribute band will perform a three-hour show on a single night engagement.
Legion President Bob Oldford says tickets are selling at a good pace and can be purchased at the branch any afternoon or by calling the Legion at 204-857-5558. They are also available online at www.experiencecash.com.
“We are proud to announce our Legion Support Tour across Canada. We have dedicated all performance dates to be held at Royal Canadian Legion branches,” say the tour’s promoters “The Legion needs Canadians to replenish the membership count. The lifeblood of the organization are the members and since 2006 at least 64 branches have had to close their doors because of dwindling membership.
“Our mission is to support the RCL by recruiting as many new members as possible. As our elders pass, we have to keep the balance with the next generation to join or another door may close. The Ring Of Fire: A Johnny Cash Experience musicians and band manager are all proud members, and we ask that you please visit your LOCAL branch to join as well.

Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door.
