Dallas Green's platinum-selling and Juno-winning project City and Colour has announced a North American tour in addition to previously announced summer festivals.
The US run kicks off Oct, 9 and features two back-to-back nights in Nashville, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, and New York. One night in each city will take place in a seated theatre, featuring Green performing an intimate solo show. The extra night in each city will take place in general admission rock venues and feature Green performing with his full touring band. Supporting City and Colour in the US will be Ben Rogers (solo shows) and alternative singer-songwriter Ruby Waters (full band shows).
A Canadian arena tour, promoted by Live Nation, launches in Victoria on Nov. 8 and ends in Halifax on Nov. 29. Each ticket purchased online for the Canadian tour includes the choice of a digital or CD copy of C and C's forthcoming full-length album. Joining City and Colour as support is Nigerian-born British singer-songwriter Jacob Banks, and B.C. based songwriter Ben Rogers, the first signing to Green’s Still Records.
City and Colour has partnered with PLUS1 for all North American tour dates. $1 from every ticket sold in Canada will be donated to both MusiCounts & Indspire. $1 from every ticket sold in the US will be given to Crisis Text Line.
Green has also debuted a new song, Astronaut, this week. The track is produced by three-time Grammy-winning Jacquire King (Kings Of Leon, Tom Waits, Norah Jones) and mastered by Emily Lazar (Beck, Coldplay, The Chainsmokers), the first female mastering engineer to win a Grammy for the best-engineered album.
Astronaut is the first original music from City and Colour in almost four years and is featured on his upcoming sixth studio album to be released this fall on Green’s newly minted Still Records, an imprint of Dine Alone Records.
Rob Zifarelli at Paradigm is the primary agent for City and Colour.
