Known for his exceptional portrayals of such iconic characters as starship captain James T. Kirk, police officer T. J. Hooker and attorney Denny Crane as well as appearing in the 1966 Esperanto-scripted cult classic “Incubus,” the Montreal-born Shatner launches his tour at British Columbia’s Center In Vancouver Oct. 19 Other stops are Regina, Saskatchewan, at the Conexus Arts Centre Oct. 21; Edmonton, Alberta, at the Shaw Conference Centre Oct. 23; Winnipeg, Manitoba, at the Centennial Concert Hall Oct. 25; Toronto’s Massey Hall Nov. 2; and Montreal’s Place des Arts Nov. 4.

What is Shatner planning for these dates? According to promotion company Trixstar Productions, the renowned actor will be taking fans “on a wild ride through his life and career and singing songs as only he can.”

In other words, it’s Shatner being Shatner, a show that you’ll remember for years to come. In fact, the only possible negative about this tour is that it is way too short and in a perfect world would play every city worthy of hosting the mighty Shat-man.

But right now we only have these Canada shows to dream about. Tickets, including a VIP after-show experience, go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. local time. Visit for more information.
