Hart‚Äôs special guest appearance will mark his first show in Prince Edward Island and his return to Atlantic Canada, where he last performed at Fredericton‚Äôs Aitken Centre in 1988.
The Island is the only province in Canada where Hart has never appeared live in concert.
‚ÄúI‚Äôm very honoured to have been asked by Shania to perform at her concert celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the historic 1864 Charlottetown Conference,‚ÄĚ said Hart.
‚ÄúShania Twain is one of the classiest musical acts to ever grace the world‚Äôs stage. We are going to have a blast on Aug. 30.‚ÄĚ
Hart is recognized as one of Canada‚Äôs most successful singer-songwriters, best known for his hit singles ‚ÄúSunglasses at Night‚ÄĚ, ‚ÄúNever Surrender‚ÄĚ, and ‚ÄúIn Your Soul‚ÄĚ. He has exceeded 16 million record sales worldwide and scored nine US Billboard Top 40 Hits.
Also opening the show will be P.E.I.‚Äôs own Trinity Bradshaw, who has become a familiar name in the Canadian Country music scene.
