Ron James to Bring his "Pedal to the Metal" Tour to St. Thomas
Canadian Comedic Icon to Officially Open the Railway City Big Top
May 1, 2017 – St. Thomas, Ontario - On July 22, the massive Railway City Big Top
circus tent will open with explosive laughter as Canadian icon Ron James brings
his "Pedal to the Metal" Tour to St. Thomas. Consistently hailed by critics from
coast to coast, the award-winning comedian has been selling out venues in Canada
for over 15 years. His unique brand of side-splitting, marathon-style, high energy
performances have propelled him to stardom and formed the basis for the The Ron
James Show, which delighted audiences for five seasons.
The Globe and Mail calls Ron James "Devastatingly funny...A comedic tour de force"
while the Edmonton Journal calls his show a "...high wire act of hilarity" - especially
appropriate, given that the event will take place at the highly anticipated Grand
Opening of the 1500-seat Railway City Big Top.
Work will begin in June to put up one of Southwestern Ontario's newest and most
unique venues and it is appropriate that, in Canada's 150th year, that the event
be marked with a true display of Canadiana, a comedic talent that is said to be
unmatched across the country. The show itself will begin at 7:30 p.m., with doors
opening at 6:30 p.m. to allow guests to experience the Big Top, visit the bar and
get settled in for the over 1.5 hours of no-intermission comedy that Ron James is
known for. Tickets will be $50 for General Admission and $65 for VIP seating, with
VIP tables of 8 available for $500 all available at www.railwaycitybigtop.com .
A Big Top Grand Opening Reception will follow, with local live music until 11:00
Ticket presale will take place from May 2nd – 12th, at a 10% discount with the promo
code "RAILWAY" and is aimed at adult audiences (16+).
