Today and Friday only, Prince George fans can snap up seats for the Colin James-Barney Bentall show (their special guest Marty O'Reilly will open) for slashed prices. James and Bentall are both known for songs about the bright colours and dark undertones of love, so this sale is in deference to Valentine's Day gift giving.

Anyone who purchases a seating-area ticket before

10 p.m. Friday will get the reduced rate of $25.

James, the headliner of this triple-bill, is synonymous with the blues. He knows how to rock at world-class levels (Just Came Back, Voodoo Thing, Saviour, etc.) but his foundation is the guitar twang and lyrical dust that springs out of the epic valley of the Mississippi (check out Atlanta Moan, Jumpin' From 6 to 6, Bad Bad Whiskey, and National Steel to see his blues breadth).

He has just released a new album called Miles To Go which is already moving the needle forward on his legacy as a master guitar player.

Bentall is also someone with a rock pedigree, forged in the heat of songs like Come Back To Me, Crime Against Love, Life Could Be Worse and his pounding hit Do Ya with his band The Legendary Hearts. Yet he also comes from a place of acoustic authenticity and rural roots. Check out his traditionalist work with The High Bar Gang, his Grand Cariboo Opry project, and the country hints in his album Gift Horse.

O'Reilly is a true indie troubadour with toes in the water of blues, Americana folk, gypsy-jazz and acoustic freewheeling.

Tickets are available at the CN Centre box office or online at the TicketsNorth website.
