Canadian rock royalty from the '70s and '80s will be celebrated with the largest-ever Canada's Walk of Fame "mega" induction of 13 acts at Toronto's Massey Hall on September 28 — the first of two induction ceremonies for the Walk of Fame's 25th anniversary festivities this year.

A special, one-time-only event, Canada's Rock of Fame will see the induction of April Wine, Chilliwack, Glass Tiger, Lee Aaron, Lighthouse, Loverboy, Max Webster, Michel Pagliaro, Platinum Blonde, PRISM, Rough Trade, the Parachute Club and Trooper into the Walk of Fame's ranks.

"These trailblazing musicians have had an extraordinary impact on our Canadian Rock landscape," Jeffrey Latimer, CEO of Canada's Walk of Fame, said in a statement. "Their longevity, many of whom still tour and sell out venues, is inspiring; and we are proud to welcome them each to Canada's Walk of Fame."
"Canada's Rock of Fame at Massey Hall will be a historic and rockin' night of music celebrating these 13 newly inducted bands and musicians whose successful recording careers and decades-long journey of live performances have set the stage for the Canadian concert industry," added Canada's Walk of Fame Director of Operations Jody Shivdasani.

Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday (July 14) at 10 a.m. ET, following various presales that begin tomorrow (July 12). In addition to all of the iconic inductees being in attendance, a slate of presenters, performers and special guests will be announced in the weeks to come.

The annual Canada's Walk of Fame induction ceremony and broadcast will take place in December.
