Prism Receives Calgary's "White Hat" Award
May 10, 2018
During Prism’s May 4 performance headlining the Grey Eagle Casino Event Centre, the band was awarded Calgary’s “White Hat” honour, making the band official Citizens of the City of Calgary.
The thousand-strong audience gave a five-minute standing ovation during the ceremony, about which Prism’s Al Harlow later commented:
“While Prism has played Calgary so often it feels like home, I feel this award is shared with all Prism alumni, past and present, back to our earliest days, and to the music we created together.”
Harlow announced onstage that another White Hat Citizen was in the audience, champion wrestler Brett “Hitman” Hart, spawning another ovation. Backstage Hart confided that his theme song for entering the ring was Prism’s “Young & Restless”.
It was indeed a night of honours.
