CCMA Awards Tickets Hit Big in Saskatchewan Market

OVER HALF AVAILABLE SEATS SOLD IN ONE WEEK

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 18, 2007) - Canadian Country Music Awards tickets for the Monday September 10 show and live broadcast from Regina, Saskatchewan are going fast with confirmation that over half were gone within the first week. Strong sales continue despite the fact performers have yet to be announced. 2007 CCMA Awards Nominees will be released August 1.

Regina's Brandt Centre is hosting the CCMA Awards show and television broadcast for the first time. Tickets are on sale at $70.00, $55.00 and $30.00, plus tax and handling - with more to be released as staging and full seating layouts are completed.

Brandt Centre Vice-President, Marketing and Events, Neil Donnelly, anticipates a one of a kind show, saying "...producers continue with site visits to finalize staging and creative, and I'm really looking forward to how the facility will look. Converting the arena for a televised show is not an easy task, but I have seen some of the work this organization has done before, and I'm always amazed by what they can do."

The CCMA returns to Regina for the first time since 1983, and for the first time to the Brandt Centre. Donnelly tells fans to "...look forward to a big night of celebration for everybody...it should be quite a party!"

CCMA Awards tickets can be purchased through www.ticketmaster.ca or by calling toll free 1-800-970-7328 or 306-543-7800. The multi-Gemini winning CCMA Awards show will feature many of the biggest performers of country music from the past year, celebrating a year of achievement on one stage.
