Bachman & Turner will take care of even more business next month, as the duo headlines the NHL’s season-opening party at The Forks.

Rockers Randy Bachman and Fred Turner — who just performed at MTS Centre last weekend — have been announced as the performers for the 2011 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off party on Thursday, October 6.

Three Days Grace and Winnipeg band Inward Eye are also on the roster of talent to help celebrate the Winnipeg Jets’ season opener days later on October 9.

CBC personality George Stroumboulopoulos will emcee the free event from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Portions of the concert will air on VERSUS and the NHL Network, while others will be shown on the CBC as part of their “Hockey Night in Canada” broadcast of the Toronto Maple Leafs-Montreal Canadiens game.

If you can’t make it to The Forks, there’s still time to celebrate on October 9 during the After Burner Social, featuring Blue Rodeo and Keith and Renée.
