Popular Canadian singer Johnny Reid is coming back to Northern Ontario.

Reid released his new album "revival" on Friday November, 3 and is also announcing a 40 city national tour.

The tour will be bringing him to the Sault and Sudbury in late March.

Reid has some ties to our region as his wife's dad is from Lively, so they often come to Northern Ontario to visit.

Johnny Reid plays the Essar Centre in the Sault on March 29th, and the Sudbury arena on March 31st with Glass Tiger as their opener.

Tickets go on sale next week.
