This year marks the Juno Awards’ 40th anniversary and to celebrate this momentous occasion the ceremony comes back to its city of origin, Toronto! Only a few years ago, TRIUMPH was inducted into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame at the Juno Awards Ceremony. This year, Rik Emmett is gracing the awards with his rockin’ presence again!

Beginning in December, artists from the 70s through to the new millennium will be featured on a Saturday of each month at the Horseshoe Tavern as part of the JUNO Decades concert series. TRIUMPH’s own Rik Emmett is one of the confirmed artists performing on January 8th, 2011 for the Songs of the 80s show at the Horseshoe Tavern. For those of you who have seen the legendary guitarist perform, you know this concert will be a perfect way to welcome the New Year.

The Juno Decades concert series has already held a show celebrating hit artists from the 70s. The series continues with the 80s show on January 8th, moves forward to the 90s on February 5th and finally showcases the stars of the last decade on March 5th just a few weeks before the official ceremony is held in Toronto’s Air Canada Center.

This is a charitable event and tickets are only twenty dollars, so be sure to catch your favorite 80’s musicians, reminisce with friends of those days and make a difference! MusiCounts is a charity keeping music alive in our youth regardless of socioeconomic circumstances.

The boys were in top form at Rocklahoma last Friday as they showed the crowd that they still have the magic power. Complete with pyrotechnics, masterful guitar licks and thunderous drumming, Triumph left everyone wanting more. And with the mention of a possible tour in 2009 we eagerly await to see what will emerge in the new year.

Until then, these YouTube clips will have to hold us off.

There was a time when the possibility of a Triumph reunion seemed like just a fantasy but when Rik, Mike and Gil took the stage at Sweden Rock this weekend, that fantasy became a reality.

For those of us who couldn’t make it, click here to see Triumph perform Never Surrender.

Every band has to start somewhere and for Triumph, that somewhere was Ontario’s Simcoe High School where, on Sept. 19, 1975, the trio played their first gig. For their hard work they received $750 and likely some new fans. To celebrate this important date in the band’s history, check out the latest additions to the Photo Gallery and listen to your favourite Triumph songs.
