As 2017 comes to a close, so have we reached the final farewell for Kenny Shields and Streetheart.
This was to have been a special, year long celebration of shows to mark the 40 year legacy of Streetheart and to say thank you to all our fans for 15 wonderful years as Kenny Shields and Streetheart/The Official Site but sadly, those plans were cut short in July with the tragic passing of our dear friend and bandmate, Kenny Shields.
We thank you all from the bottom our hearts for all the love and support you have shown for Kenny, his family and for all of us over the year. The tribute show for Kenny in August was a testament to the appreciation that fans and fellow musicians alike had for him. Fittingly, Kenny received a number of posthumous awards for his lifetime of achievements as the music industry and country paid its respects, acknowledging one of the finest frontmen and vocalists of our generation.
We know that we speak for everyone when we say he will always be missed and, he will never be forgotten…
We owe a huge debt of gratitude to all the men and women at classic rock radio across Canada for keeping the music of Streetheart alive on the airwaves and a shout out to the members of the press, in print, online and on the air for continually representing us with class.
We must also extend kudos to all the promoters/venues across the country for bringing us back year after year and of course to all the hard working crews for getting those shows ready to go every time, on time.
Finally, to all of our amazing fans from coast to coast, our sincere gratitude for singing along with us, dancing in the aisles and hanging in there beside us, right to the very end.
We wish each and every one of you and your families a Happy New Year.
May peace, good health and prosperity knock on your door and bring joy into your homes.
It has been a great privilege and honour to have enjoyed so many memorable nights with you.
Bless you all.
Bless you Kenny.
RIP dear friend.
