“We’re so proud to bring The Sheepdogs to Northern Manitoba,” notes Nickel Days President Wendell Fitzpatrick. “They’re a rock band with many claim-to fames including gold and platinum records, sharing the stage with rock icons and a great new album, we have no doubt this is going to be the event of the summer in Thompson!”
