For bandmates Kim Berly and Rich Dodson, The Stampeders upcoming show at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts must go on.

It’s what bassist Ronnie King, who passed away early last month, would have wanted.

Berly and Dodson, along with bassist Dave Chabot, will take to the stage One More Time! at the AEG Leibherr Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. on May 7.

The latest tour was scheduled to be the Calgary band’s last.

“The tour that was intended to be his final bow will now, instead, be our tribute to, and celebration of, our beautiful friend and partner,” the Canadian band said of King, who died at the age of 76 and was a founding member.

The show will feature many of the band’s classic hits, including “Wild Eyes,” “Carry Me,” “Oh My Lady,” “Devil You,” “Monday Morning Choo Choo,” “Minstrel Gypsy,” “Hit the Road Jack” and Canadian Hall of Fame song, “Sweet City.”

The celebration of King’s life will feature many stories of the band’s years on the road together.

“It will be an evening filled with our classic hits, delivered with love,” said the band.

Tickets are $90 can be purchased by calling the Box Office at 905-815-2021 or 1-888-489-7784.
