When Walk Off The Earth originally made their plans to play a show in Toronto they, like the rest of the unexpecting world, never accounted for the years of isolation to come accompanying the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, their initial announcement to play in 2020 was overruled by enforcement to keep everybody safe. Unfortunately, this meant no live music and regrettably, no Walk Off The Earth Show. After a rescheduling and lots of waiting, Walk Off The Earth finally made their way onto the Budweiser stage in Toronto on Saturday, June 16 alongside opening acts, Jesse Gold and Kiesza.
Jesse Gold is a singer-songwriter from Toronto who mixes pop and R&B genres to create a sweet groove. Gold recently saw success with his recent performance at the 2022 Juno awards with his song “One In A Million.”
Kiesza then sprung onto the stage with huge amounts of unabashed joy and certainly, no lack of energy. The Calgary-based electronic artist is a unique performer who makes use of a keytar as well as a small, yet mighty electric ukulele to create an electrifying beat. If you’re up for a dance, Kiesza is the one to see.
When Walk Off The Earth Came on, there was no looking away. The Burlington-born band who is most known for their Youtube videos covering popular songs exploded onto the stage with supreme verve and booming sounds. The diverse multi-instrumentalist band played covers as well as original songs on a stage decorated with nothing less than fire projectors and smoke. Walk Off The Earth made use of everything at their disposal to create an exhilarating show. All that attractive pyrotechnic glamour, yet they were still able to transport fans back in time to the pure simplicity of everybody sharing one guitar to play a single unpretentious melody.
Walk off the earth continues their tour, see dates here.

Hi! My name is Maddie and I’m a lover of art and all things rock n’ roll based in Toronto, Canada. I am an artist, writer, photographer, and filmmaker, happily spending my time involved and working hard at each of my passions. When I’m not creating art or films for myself, I’m either listening to music or at local shows using my camera to document the many amazing Toronto artists playing music for crowds of all sizes. I am lucky to spend time shooting, creating videos and taking photos for so many good people playing good Canadian music
