From the monthly archives: "May 2007"

The relationship between one of Canada’s greatest rock bands and the radio station they’d become so closely linked to was published in an article for Tuesday’s edition of the Toronto Sun. Andrew Burns, a writer for the Q107 Rock Report Blog speaks to Triumph about the early days and how together they helped shape Canada’s Rock Music scene.

Q107 celebrates 30 years in the biz and will be honoring Triumph in a celebration tonight. Check back for more updates.


Triumph is known for their visuals and stage shows as much as they are for their hard rock sound that dominated  airwaves and arenas throughout the 80’s. So it only makes sense that have an equally awesome video player. Which is why we have just added a one to the site.

If you missed any of the video footage from Triumph’s Induction on March 10, head over to the video page to check it out. We’re also featuring some footage from the US Festival and A Night of Triumph LIVE.

It was May 08, 1978 that Triumph embarked on their first Canadian tour in Campbellton New Brunswick. This same tour later went on to include shows at Toronto’s Ontario Place and Bowmanville’s Mosport Park where they would perform with acts like The Doobie Brothers, Dave Mason & Kansas for an audience of 110,000.
