Republic Live, producers of Boots and Hearts Music Festival and Big Sky Music Festival, will host The Stones at Burl’s Creek Event Grounds on its 600-acre site, located in Oro-Medonte – which is located one hour north of Toronto and just fifteen minutes north of Barrie. It’s the same grounds that hosted WayHome Music & Arts Festival as well.

Close to 70,000 fans of the legendary band are expected to attend the spectacular show at Canada’s largest outdoor venue.

The ‘No Filter’ tour received rave reviews for Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood so far, as they played to sold out stadiums throughout the UK and Europe last year.

The set list has the iconic group treating generations of fans to classic Stones hits including “Sympathy For The Devil,” “Paint It Black,” “Brown Sugar,” “Miss You,” in addition to special gems from their celebrated catalog, according to organizers.

“Canada Rocks with The Rolling Stones is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the world’s greatest rock and roll band,” said Lisa Zechmeister, Director of Booking and Development, Republic Live. “This show on the Canada Day weekend will no doubt be the hottest ticket in the country and we expect fans to travel from all over the world, as well as every province and territory to see the only Canadian show on this tour.”
