The nostalgia was evident as fans packed the dome for Corey Hart and opener Glass Tiger. Hart who amassed 11 Top 10 hits during 35-year career, and recent inductee into Canada’s Music Hall of Fame is touring on his latest release “Dreaming Time Again” where if you watch the music video for the single Hart acknowledges that it has been “almost 20 years” since he has gone out on tour.

Glass Tiger was the perfect opener to warm up the crowd at the Saddledome, as they shared numerous hits during the same period as Hart and are out promoting their latest album “Thirty Three”. Alan Frew and the guys had the fans singing along from the first song, and had the crowd out of their seats. Frew told the crowd, “this night is about you,” and the fans loved it. While the set consisted mostly of their greatest hits, they did play “This is London”, and closed with “This Is Your Life”, from their latest release.

Corey Hart had the entire room standing as he took the stage, with images of his past albums and videos flashed across the tri-screen. While it may have been 20 years since he last toured (although he has made an appearance in 2017 at Oxford Stomp), fans are still extremely devoted. Even the security was reminiscing about his show in Calgary in 1986. Hart was energetic and on point.  During “Bang!” he grabbed a large banner from the crowd emblazoned with his likeness, which he draped over his guitarist, like a cape. Hart was charismatic and on point for the night, showing fans that even after a 20-year tour hiatus that he is ready to return and share his musical dream with his adoring fans!
