The Island is the only province in Canada where Hart has never appeared live in concert.

“I’m very honoured to have been asked by Shania to perform at her concert celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the historic 1864 Charlottetown Conference,” said Hart. 

“Shania Twain is one of the classiest musical acts to ever grace the world’s stage. We are going to have a blast on Aug. 30.”

Hart is recognized as one of Canada’s most successful singer-songwriters, best known for his hit singles “Sunglasses at Night”, “Never Surrender”, and “In Your Soul”.  He has exceeded 16 million record sales worldwide and scored nine US Billboard Top 40 Hits.

Also opening the show will be P.E.I.’s own Trinity Bradshaw, who has become a familiar name in the Canadian Country music scene.

    Chill out folks ... it's a joke. Pick your battles , this ain't one of them. Didn't realize the Cory Hart fan club was based out of PEI. btw I was playing "sunglassses " before your were born.Cory's a Canadian treasure , just like Alana Myles , Lee Aaron and yes Bob , Bieber.

    It's a good match. Middle-aged women going to Shania........ Corey Hart brings.....more middle-aged women......His act is tame too so the kids can come.

    that seems an odd combination of music. i doubt Country music fans would be interested in listening to Corey Hart, and vice-versa.
