the following shows have been announced so far:

Feb. 28 - Redcliff, AB @ Harmony Hall (w/ HEADPINS)
Feb. 29 - Calgary, AB @ Deerfoot Casino (w/ HEADPINS)

Jul. 26 - Mattawa, ON @ Voyageur Days

"According to Lee Aaron's guitarist Rob Hamilton, "the first time we did this was the Rock the Fort Festival in Thunder Bay June 16th 2006, a double bill with HEART. The show was a huge success with Lee and the band sounding great. The turnout was intense as well with over 40,000 tickets sold. The next was in Mattawa Ontario July 29th for the Voyageur Days Festival."

Aaron previously stated about the Rock the Fort and Voyageur Days festival performances, "The new material meshed extremely well with the older tunes. Thunder Bay was a first. I've never blended the jazz/pop stuff with my rock hits. The new material seemed to assimilate seamlessly and was really well received by the crowd.

"Despite offers, I refused to perform my earlier work for about six years, playing the jazz circuit instead, endeavoring to earn credibility as a jazz chanteuse. Tremendous pay cut, but worth it in the end. For the most part, people are no longer shocked that I'm capable of more than big hair arena rock. It was important to me to change that perception. There is an unfortunate stereotype that exists especially in the industry that posits that if you are a woman, and play hard rock you can't possibly have brains. I spent the first twenty years my career being treated like an idiot, except by those that knew me well. I digress.

"Wahoo. I loved it. The show was so much fun and it finally felt really right to be putting together a comprehensive set that spans my entire career. Plans to do more for sure."
