JUNO Award-winning band, The Glorious Sons have announced details of their upcoming SOS Tour which will be hitting Canadian cities this fall!
The band is thrilled to announce special guests The Beaches will be joining them on this 14-date national tour.
Kicking off in Kamloops, BC on October 30, this run of dates includes a show at the Scotiabank Arena (formally the ACC) in Toronto amongst the list of impressive venues across the country, a major accomplishment for The Glorious Sons. See the itinerary below which also includes a U.S. national tour supporting Welshly Arms this Fall. Visit theglorioussons.com for tickets and information. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, July 20th at 10 AM local time.
This announcement comes after an already extensive 2018 touring schedule throughout 12 different countries, across 10 different time zones and a fully sold-out Canadian tour last year.
“S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun)” is the third radio single off the band’s sophomore album Young Beauties and Fools (October 2017). Lead singer Brett Emmons shares an “Open Letter” with fans – offering listeners context for the lyrics of this personal rock anthem. Brett expresses his fears, vulnerabilities and uncertainties in hopes of offering understanding and support to others who may have similar experiences. You can check it out here.
The Glorious Sons also release a special performance of “S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun)” from their memorable hometown show at the Rogers K-Rock Centre in Kingston, ON to give fans a taste of what they can expect to see on tour this Fall.
