We don't know who or where yet, but Sault Ste. Marie will be hosting a concert on July 16 as part of Ontario's 150th anniversary celebrations. A stop in Blind River is also on the tour roster for July 8.

Ontario's free ONtour concert series is stopping in more than 20 communities across Ontario and showcasing some of the province's brightest homegrown musical talent, says a press release from the provincial government.

Each concert will consist of at least three acts.

"More than 50 Ontario artists will be part of the ONtour roster, including the Jim Cuddy Band, Serena Ryder, Kim Mitchell, The Tea Party, Magic!, Tom Cochrane, James Barker Band, Our Lady Peace, Big Wreck, Kardinal Offishall, The Philospher Kings, Barenaked Ladies, Mélanie Brulée, USS, Alx Veliz, Anjulie, Jonathan Roy, Coleman Hell, Scott Helman, Rivertown Saints, Michelle Treacy, Francesco Yates, DJ Shub, Karl Wolf, Next Generation Leahy, Tyler Shaw, Midnight Shine, Mia Martina and others" are acts that are taking place.

ONtour kicks off June 25, with a performance celebrating Alderville First Nation's 180th anniversary and wraps up in Petawawa on Sept. 17.

All of the ONtour concerts are free and open to music-lovers of all ages and there are no tickets required.
