attention and secured their niche in the pages of rock ‘n roll history with their performances at the
1967 Monterey Pop Festival (alongside Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and The Who) and as headliners at the original Woodstock Festival in 1969.
Their take on modern electric blues, rock and boogie has earned them a loyal following and
influenced many aspiring guitarists and bands during the past four decades. Their Top 40 Country-Blues-Rock songs, On The Road Again, Let’s Work Together and Going Up The Country became anthems throughout the world with the latter being adopted as the unofficial theme song for the film Woodstock. Their cover version of Wilbert Harrison’s Let’s Work Together was actually their biggest hit as it rose to No. 1 in 31 different countries around the world.
Now, more than fifty years later and with thirty-eight albums to their credit, Canned Heat is still going strong. Australia loves Canned Heat and lineup for their tour includes founding members Fito de la Parra & Larry Taylor plus long standing members, John “JP” Paulus & Dale Spalding.
These shows will sell quickly so be sure to get in quick!
