In a strange twist of fate leaving Canadian music fans of a certain era both scratching their heads and head-over-heels excited, ‘90’s icons Our Lady Peace and Matthew Good are joining up to tour the country in March 2018.
Beginning on March 1 in Newfoundland at St. John’s Mile One Stadium, the tour will take OLP and Good through 18 cities in nine provinces; and conclude March 31 in Abbotsford, BC.
The tour comes on the heels of new releases from both artists. Good’s eighth solo record, Something Like a Storm, was released in October and includes the singles “Decades” and “There is the First Time.” Our Lady Peace are in the midst of a double EP release, with Somethingness Vol. 1 released in August, and Somethingness Vol. 2 scheduled for release in early 2018. Their latest single, “Drop Me in the Water,” features a music video starring YouTube personality Matthew Santoro.
Tickets for the shows will be available at www.matthewgood.org/shows and www.ourladypeace.com, with VIP options available. In addition, the artists are teaming up with Plus 1 to donate $1 from each ticket sold to War Child.
Born and raised with thoughts and aspirations of becoming a famous bassist in Sarnia, ON; Emily Plunkett now lives in Gatineau, QC, and considers National Capital Region home sweet home. A product of the Beatles, MuchMusic and the Southwestern Ontario summer festival circuit (circa 2000), her interest and love in concert photography came almost completely by accident when her journalism program at Algonquin College required courses in photojournalism (and she quickly realized that photos taken at concerts using a DSLR are enormously better than ones she was taking on a point-and-shoot she bought for a trip to England). She is extremely proud of the fact she has seen Sloan in some form or another 25 times.
