Golden Delicious is bringing the Sugar.

Big Sugar is coming to Golden to play a show at the Golden Civic Centre on Wednesday, Oct. 24.

You may remember the 90s Canadian rock band for their hit singles “Diggin’ a Hole,” or “Turn the Lights On.”

“Big Sugar just came out with a new album last year. They have a new single out this year as well,” said Pat Légaré, member of Golden Delicious Productions, an organization that focuses on putting on events in Golden. “It was a huge band in the 90s, but have definitely had a few albums out since,”

It is the same group responsible for bringing us Elliott Brood in August.

“Elliott Brood was our first show at the Civic Centre. It was a dry run, to see how everything was going to go with the sound and security and the bar. It turned out to be really good,” said Légaré.

“One of the reasons we wanted to do it at the Civic Centre is so people can be home by midnight. So people who might not go see them in a bar because you’re not home until 2 in the morning, will be able to come. It gives us a wider variety in the audience, so it’s good.”

Golden Delicious has been around for more than a decade, and are known around Golden for not only bringing in talent, but also throwing parties and hosting shows at various locations around town, as many of their members are DJs.

They are starting to bring in some major acts for the winter season, and it is beginning with Big Sugar.

“The first band that is going to perform is the Balconies. They are pretty awesome. I had never heard of them until we signed Big Sugar, so they are doing the whole tour with them,” said Légaré.

The Balconies will take the stage at 7:30, and then get ready for a loud show when Big Sugar comes on at 8:30 or 9 p.m.

“They’re usually a five-piece band in the studio, but they do play the live shows with about eight or nine performers on stage. And I think they are bringing in Willie Williams. He’s a reggae legend, and he is doing the first part of the tour with Big Sugar, and that includes the Golden show.”

Tickets are $35 and are presale only. They are available at Plain Wayne and Jane, Jita’s Cafe, and the Golden Taps. The concert will feature a full bar, with some of the proceeds going to the Golden Nordic Club.
