Counting Crows Take Somewhere Under Wonderland Tour To Canada

 

Counting Crows are following up their critically-acclaimed seventh album, Somewhere Under Wonderland, with a 2015 worldwide tour, including 15 dates across Canada. This is the band’s first tour across Canada in over 15 years, and will begin in Vancouver on April 28, continuing on through Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, and others, wrapping in St. Johns, NL on May 23. Mosaic Place is pleased to announce they will host the band in Moose Jaw on May 7th.

 

Pre-sale and VIP tickets for the band’s Canadian dates go on sale Wednesday, February 4, and tickets will be available to the general public starting Friday, February 6. Counting Crows will also be touring across Australia, Europe, and North America this year. For more information, visit countingcrows.com.

 

Known as one of the most dynamic live bands performing today, they will be performing songs from the 2014 Top 10 album, which critics have been claiming as the “band’s best”, as well as their extensive catalog. USA Today called Somewhere Under Wonderland “one of their stronger works,” with Consequence of Sound comparing it to “a colorful and emotionally rich palette of sounds that combines past recording styles, flavors from covers album Underwater Sunshine, and the spontaneous spirit of their live performances.”

 

“It’s about time we’re getting back to Canada. After requesting it for years, we are finally getting a legit chance to play across the country. I can’t wait,” said Adam Duritz.

 

Counting Crows also released the video for their second single off Somewhere Under Wonderland, “Earthquake Driver,” on Tuesday, January 27. Watch the video here: http://smarturl.it/EDVid

 

Joining as the tour’s supporting act will be Twin Forks, the folk rock band started in 2011 by Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional, Further Seems Forever). They released their self-titled debut studio album in February 2014.

TOBY KEITH AT MOSAIC PLACE JUNE 30, 2015

 

Mosaic Place is excited to announce award winning country superstar, Toby Keith, will be performing in the Friendly City on June 30th. Tickets for the performance go on sale Friday, January 30th at 10am.

 

From his first No. 1 smash "Should've Been A Cowboy" to his latest release Drinks After Work, Toby Keith has been one of the most consistent self-directed hit makers of his era. From one of his previous collections, Clancy's Tavern, the lead single, "Made In America," topped the charts as one of the fastest rising songs in a long line of chart burners from Keith's pen. The second hit, "Red Solo Cup," has become the most remarkable and commercially successful country single in recent memory with a viral video with more than 30 million views while having topped the top downloaded country songs charts.

 

At the core of Toby's unparalleled success is his songwriting, which has powered an astounding succession of hit songs to the tune of more than 85 million BMI performances on commercial radio stations worldwide. He has been honored by the Nashville Songwriters Association International with its Songwriter/Artist of the Decade distinction, is a three-time BMI Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year and was named the American Country Awards' Artist of the Decade.

 

His albums have sold more than 40 million copies, ranking him among the top-selling all-genre artists on Billboard's Top 200 Artists of the Decade. Keith is also Billboard's No. 1 Country Artist of the Decade and No.1 Country Songwriter of the Decade. His tours, including 2014's Shut Up And Hold On Tour, long sponsored by Ford Trucks, have drawn more than one million fans each year for the last decade. His roster of I Love This Bar And Grill restaurants continues to grow, and his signature spirit Wild Shot has become the No. 1 premium mezcal in the U.S. These, among other endeavors, have earned Keith annual recognition from Forbes as one of the very top-earning entertainer/musicians in the world.

 

But Toby's most rewarding experiences, as exhibited in his continual devotion to them, come from giving back. Whether it's helping sick children and their families in his native Oklahoma through the Toby Keith Foundation and their cost-free home, the Ok Kids Korral,or supporting US Troops including USO Tours throughout the world, Keith has never lost touch with the most important things in life. 

 

Tickets for the June 30th performance at Mosaic Place start at $79.50 plus taxes and fees and may be purchased online Friday, January 30th, 10am at www.mosaicplace.ca, by phone at (306) 624-2050 or in person at the Mosaic Place Box Office.
