It's been 25 years since the release of Tom Cochrane's landmark album, Mad Mad World. The deluxe edition has been issued and is available in stores and at streaming services today via Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company. The remastered, two-CD set includes the previously unreleased original demo recording of "Love Is A Highway", which spawned the career-defining single "Life Is A Highway". The album also includes a 1992 Chicago concert performance that features key tracks from the album, as well as Red Rider classics.

Mad Mad World accelerated the Canadian singer/songwriter's upward trajectory into the stratosphere. Cochrane celebrated this milestone anniversary on October 28, 2016, in Calgary, where an exhibition of his musical work was unveiled at the National Music Centre before its opening to the general public today. The never-at-rest artist also announced a cross-Canada tour through February and March 2017, with 21 dates on the calendar and more to be announced in the coming days. Reuniting with his Red Rider bandmates Kenny Greer and Jeff Jones, Cochrane will perform Mad Mad World in its entirety, with additional fan favourites in the set. Meghan Patrick will be joining the tour on all dates.

Mad Mad World remains among the top-selling albums in Canadian music history, achieving the rare diamond-certified status on the strengths of such hit singles as the title track, "No Regrets", "Washed Away", "Sinking Like A Sunset", and, of course, "Life Is A Highway", which reigned at #1 for six weeks in Canada, reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100, and went on to become recognized all over the world.

Moore will perform songs from his certified Gold album UP ALL NIGHT - which includes the multi-platinum hits "Somethin' Bout A Truck", "Beer Money" and "Hey Pretty Girl" as well as fan favorites from hissophomore album WILD ONES and the newly released, critically acclaimed UNDERGROUND EP.

"My favorite part of this crazy life we have is playing live," said Moore. "We've been playing so many of these new songs in the live show because we road-tested them night after night before recording what became the final album. They were a huge part in helping me formulate what WILD ONES became...we are a tribe. I'm excited to get back out there and headline and put a show together that is all about them."

Kip Moore's debut album, Up All Night, was released in 2012 and was the best-selling debut album by a male artist in 2012 and 2013 and included such hits as 'Hey Pretty Girl' and 'Somethin' 'Bout a Truck' and 'Beer Money'.

» More about this Artist

Dean Brody brings his brand new album, Beautiful Freakshow, coast to coast as part of an exhilarating launch with local media appearances and country radio listener events. The launch will culminate in a special live performance in Toronto to kick off the announcement of his national tour dates, which begin April 2017.

Tickets officially go on sale November 4, 2016, at www.livenation.com or Ticketmaster, with the pre-sale running November 2 and 3, 2016. VIP tickets will include premium seats, a pre-show meet and greet, a photo opportunity, a pre-show acoustic performance, and more. During the West Coast concert dates, Madeline Merlo, the 2015 CCMA Rising Star and reigning BCCMA Female Artist of the Year, will perform before Brody takes the stage. The James Barker Band, a fun loving, Top 5 Canadian country radio act, will open the action-packed show across Canada.

In the past year, Brody has received a JUNO Award for Country Album of the Year and four CCMA awards for the top-selling digital Canadian country single of all time, "Bring Down the House". Beautiful Freakshow is Brody’s sixth album, and it takes risks and delves outside of the comfort zone of traditional country, with songs like the progressive title track featuring a rap vocal from Halifax native Shevy Price and the mellow reggae vibe invoked from "Beautiful Girl". The record manages to simultaneously stay true to what many fans have come to love and expect from Brody, with traditional tracks destined to be classics, such as "Time", "8th Day", and "Blueberry Sky", which features iconic country legend Vince Gill on guitar.
