Colonel Chris Hadfield is coming to Vancouver in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday.

The retired Canadian astronaut was the first Canadian to walk in space and supports the idea for a manned mission to Mars.

The nation’s first spaceship commander will embark a new tour in which he will share a selection of stories, images, songs, and ideas that celebrate our country.

According to a press release, Chris Hadfield will look at the history and future of Canada through its people and the land itself. Performing songs like his fun-loving, patriotic single “In Canada”, to his evocative “Beyond the Terra” that looks away from the land to the skies, Colonel Hadfield ties his presentation together with stories of great Canadians and tales from his incredible career.

The event will be suitable for fans of all ages, as Chris is expected to customize his performance for each audience with hopes of leaving everyone with the sense that Canada is “out of this world”.
