Blue Rodeo has announced that they are embarking on a cross-Canada tour that will see them play 30-plus venues starting with two nights at the Southern Jubilee in Calgary on Jan. 5 and Jan. 6.

Warner Music Canada is releasing The Things We Left Behind, the band's 12th studio recording, on Nov. 10. With 16 songs on two discs, the new album is the band's most ambitious recording yet. The album will be available in a number of different configurations including two CDs, double vinyl, a special iTunes LP and a digital package that will include interactive album notes, exclusive photos of the band and portraits of their most prized instruments, a song by song commentary from Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor, and a special acoustic performance of four new songs from the album.

Blue Rodeo has sold more than four million records, won an unprecedented five Juno awards (Group of the Year), been handed keys to Toronto and been inducted to Canada's Walk of Fame. From arenas in big cities to theatres in small towns, there is nothing Blue Rodeo relishes more than playing music for their fans across the country.

A special partner on this tour is "Raise-A-Reader," which sees someone benefit from every ticket sold. The Canwest Raise-A-Reader Concert Series, presented by Country Inns & Suites By Carlsonsm, was created with Live Nation to enable artists to lend their voices to support family literacy in Canada. "Raise-A-Reader" has generated more than $15 million since its national launch in 2002. Partial proceeds from Blue Rodeo's tour will be directed to help literacy programs across Canada.
