MONTREAL, QC, July 9, 2012 – SiriusXM Canada (TSX: XSR), the country's leading audio entertainment company, today announced that it will present an exclusive summer concert tour in Quebec featuring some of the province’s hottest francophone artists. In partnership with Scène 1425, the SiriusXM Canada summer tour will kick off in Gatineau on August 22, 2012.

The tour will support independent Quebec musicians and will stop in Gatineau, Chicoutimi, Quebec City, Sherbrooke, Rouyn-Noranda and Laval. Renowned artists including Malajube, Galaxie, Pierre Lapointe et ses musiciens, Loco Locass, Louis-Jean Cormier, Koriass, Loud, Lary, and Ajust are set to perform with special guest K’NAAN joining the final stop of the tour in Laval. Admission is $10.

To support the world’s future musicians, SiriusXM Canada will donate all proceeds of ticket sales from the tour to Young Musicians of the World, a Quebec-based non-profit that works to organize and operate tuition-free music schools both in Quebec and abroad. Young Musicians of the World’s mission is to contribute to youth development in underprivileged areas by creating free music schools that emphasize traditional music from the students’ country of origin.

“The SiriusXM Canada summer tour celebrates francophone music and shares the musical world of Quebec artists,” explains Andréanne Sasseville, Director of Canadian Content Development and Industry Relations for SiriusXM Canada. “We are very pleased to be able to offer Quebecers the opportunity to enjoy great live francophone music while also giving back to a worthy cause that supports the future of music at home and abroad.”
