UPDATE: CONGRATULATIONS to Colleen Hansmeyer of Calgary, Alta. on winning tickets to the Quietest. Concert. Ever. with Hedley.
CBC Music and Parks Canada will send Colleen and a friend to the heart of Banff National Park, to watch the multiple award-winning, multi-platinum-selling Hedley perform all new songs from their upcoming album, Wild Life, ahead of its Nov. 11 release. But since this is the Quietest. Concert. Ever. there won't be any of the megawatt sound systems you usually associate with a rock show. In fact, the crowd of 750 will be fitted with Sennheiser headphones, and Hedley will playing directly to them.
Colleen's prize includes tickets to the Hedley concert, a meet-and-greet with the band, airfare, accommodation for three days and two nights (Oct. 25 to Oct. 27), one of two Banff National Park experience packages and more (see the gallery above for more prize info).
Make sure to follow @CBCMusic, @ParksCanada and @Hedleyonline on Twitter for updates. You can visit the Parks Canada website for more chances to win tickets to the concert, which are free and available exclusively through contests and giveaways.
