Michael Sadler Returns to Front the Legendary Rockers
The progressive rock band Saga will be at Ottawa’s Centrepointe Theatre on February 7 for a single 8pm performance to showcase their latest album 20/20.
This album is Saga’s first since the return of singer Michael Sadler to the band. The founding member left in 2007 to take a break from the stress of long tours and to spend time with his family. In Michael’s absence, one album was released in 2009 with his replacement, Rob Moratti. At the beginning of 2011, Michael Sadler returned to Saga. 20/20 is Saga’s 21st studio album. The band has had radio hits such as On the Loose, The Flyer and Scratching the Surface. The multi-award-winning group has toured the globe countless times, and has sold over eight million albums worldwide.
Founded in 1977, Saga has a unique sound. Their musical style is defined by prominent guitar riffs, often in harmony with a synthesizer and complex keyboard arrangements, sometimes bringing in three musicians to create the band’s signature chords.
With their European tour of 24 cities now behind them, Saga looks forward to rocking out in Ottawa. They last performed here in 2007. Mystery, a progressive rock band from Montreal, opens for Saga at Centrepointe. Mystery’s lead singer, Benoît David, was a member of Yes from 2009 to 2012.
