I recently received this email newsletter from Niagara Falls Tourism:
From Canada Newswire:
Entertainment Tonight Canada announced tonight the exclusive line-up for its 3rd annual ‘New Year’s Eve at Niagara Falls,’ the country’s largest televised live New Year’s Eve party. The two-hour coast-to-coast countdown, hosted by Cheryl Hickey (@cherylhickeyetc) and Rick Campanelli (@rcampanellietc), begins at 10pm ET/PT on Global.
Accented by a custom designed stage with state of the art lighting and video displays opposite the world famous falls, ET Canada’s year-end celebration will feature performances by some of the country’s biggest names in music. The evening kicks off in fine style with JUNO award-winner Keshia Chanté followed by a performance by The Sheepdogs, Saskatoon’s international rock phenomenon. Alt-rock legends, Our Lady Peace, keep the momentum going as the clock ticks down to midnight with pop/punk group, Simple Plan, one of Canada’s most prolific bands, taking to the stage for a rousing finish. The evening will also include a special performance by a surprise guest, to be announced during the broadcast.
