Party For The People ft. Sam Roberts @ Surrey Civic Plaza – April 14th 2018

Six time Juno winner Sam Roberts headlined the 8th annual “Party for the Planet” held at the Surrey Civic Plaza in Surrey BC on April 14, 2018.  The day-long free event – the largest held in BC – commemorated Earth Day a week early.


A special afternoon acoustic duo performance with guitarist and Sam Roberts Band member Dave Nugent was held on the main stage outdoors.


Roberts engaged the audience by having them sing along to several of his more popular songs as well as playing some from his new album “TerraForm”. Several fans opted to avoid the crowd in front of the stage and listen off to the sides, so they could dance along to the music.  Some humor and a bout of the giggles also made an appearance during the set as Sam once again – unsuccessfully – attempting to whistle through part of a song.


Thanks to Mother Nature for holding back all that recent Vancouver rain (and hail) for the day so everyone could enjoy the outdoor activities in support of sustainability for the planet … our planet, “the only one with beer” according to someone in the crowd!


Other performers on the main stage included:

  • Star Captains
  • The Freshest
  • Colin Bullock
