Due to the rapidly evolving global COVID-19 situation, the Province of Manitoba has announced that all Manitoba 150 initiated events are being paused until further notice. As a result, the free summer concert, Unite 150 presented by Bell MTS, is now being planned for summer of 2021. All remaining events and activities associated with Manitoba 150 are being postponed, but funding will remain in place to support community projects and events when public health advises it is once again safe to hold large public gatherings.
Like all Manitobans, we are focused on the critical health and economic issues facing our province and country, and understand the difficult choices that have to be made.
We look forward to gathering with friends and family, relaxing to music with a Manitoba heartbeat, and being united in celebration once it is again safe to do so.
Stay safe. Stay healthy.

The Manitoba 150 Host Committee is thrilled to announce Bachman Cummings as the headline act of Unite 150 presented by Bell MTS!
Few performers can boast a set list as impressive as Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings. Collectively and individually, Bachman Cummings’ catalogue is the envy of every artist. The Guess Who, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Burton Cummings solo: together theirs is the Great Canadian Songbook and an integral chapter of the Manitoba story.
Members of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, Canadian Broadcasters Hall of Fame, the Canadian Walk of Fame, the first ever inductees into the Prairie Music Hall of Fame, recipients of the Order of Canada, the Order of Manitoba, the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award and several Broadcast Music Industry awards for over 1 million airplays, Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings are Canadian rock ‘n’ roll royalty.
“We’re the two guys who wrote and sang these songs and I think people know that and want to hear the real thing. Bachman Cummings are out there delivering that,” says Burton. “Not all artists are lucky enough to have this kind of staying power. Randy and I are able to touch Guess Who, BTO and Cummings solo stuff. We still have an audience that wants to hear those songs done by the original guys.”
Live streamed and available for home viewing or community gatherings across the province.
