Swing batter batter swing: Kevin Costner on the Halifax Common

Actor/singer opens Country Rockfest 2010, mom swoons.


Bull Durham...Field of Dreams...if that wasn't enough, now Kevin Costner, in his desire to slide into third, is sticking his cleats into Halifax baseball diamonds too. Costner and his band Modern West is one of the opening acts for next summer's two-day Country Rockfest 2010 on the Halifax Common, brought to you, once again by Power Promotional Concepts (KISS, McCartney, Keith Urban). The director-actor-country boy is opening for Alan Jackson, along with Billy Currington and Lonestar on the Saturday night. George Canyon and Johnny Reid perform on Friday for "military night." Waterworld and Bodyguard jokes are free, only at thecoast.ca.

Tickets go on sale on Dec 15. A weekend pass is $89, VIP package is $189.
