A little more than a decade ago Tom Cochrane was worried he might have ownership of his iconic song “Life is a Highway” unintentionally taken from him. Rascal Flatts had recorded the song for the “Cars” soundtrack, introducing it to a whole new generation.
Life might be a highway for Tom Cochrane, but it sure isn’t a stretch of prairie pavement. It has hills and tight corners, bridges and even some potholes. I’ve seen him four or five times now, over the years, and no two shows are the same with him, and sometimes he’s not on his game.
Tom Cochrane’s Mad Mad World album has turned 25 and Tom’s way of celebrating is to get the boys from Red Rider back together and tour. It’s a current trend these days and Tom is no stranger to either touring or celebrating milestones.
Along with Tom Cochrane were some original members from the iconic Canadian band, Red Rider . They are backing Cochrane on this tour supporting the Silver Anniversary release of his legendary Mad Mad World album, originally released in 1991
