Changes made to NYE concert lineup in Niagara Falls

Changes are being made to the lineup for the New Years Eve concert in Niagara Falls.

Burlington based band Walk Off the Earth will no longer be performing following the death of band member Mike Taylor.

Tonight's concert will still begin at 8 p.m. in Queen Victoria Park, as originally scheduled, with performances by Avenue Inn, The Sheepdogs, and Burton Cummings.

Officials with Niagara Parks tell us the classic rock band touring with Cummings, The Carpet Frogs, have now been added to the lineup.

Along with the free concert, two fireworks displays sponsored by Tim Hortons will light up the sky - the first takes place at 9 p.m. and the second fireworks display launches at midnight.

People who plan on attending are encouraged to come early, and consider taking an alternate route.
