One of Canada’s biggest solo musical acts is coming to Vancouver for two nights.
Canadian singer and songwriter Dallas Green, also known by his stage name City and Colour, announced that he will be playing two shows on November 12 and 13 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre as part of his 2021 North American Tour.
Green is donating $1 from each ticket to its Indigenous Student Bursary created by Indspire, a charity that provides Indigenous people with financial needs to pursue post-secondary education.
To ensure the safety of all involved in these shows, Green is asking all staff and ticket buyers for proof of a full COVID-19 vaccination or proof of a negative test to enter each venue. However, with the provincial government’s initiation of vaccine passports, that ask is now a requirement.
On a side note, I didn’t realize that Green sang clean vocals for the post-hardcore band Alexisonfire until I started this article. This brought back memories of 8-year-old me discovering screamo vocals for the first time and wondering how anyone could listen to this, before falling in love with metal just a few years later.
Joining the St. Catharines native on tour are Vancouver musicians Ben Rogers and Marin Patenaude on the 12th and 13th respectively. Green helped produce Rogers’ 2019 album Wildfire at his record label Still Records. This album was the solo artist’s third one. As for the latter artist Patenaude, Green had this to say about her music:
“When I first heard Marin’s music, I was immediately struck by how pure her voice was. It made me think of Cowboy Junkies, Aimee Mann or Lucinda Williams… in other words, classic.”
If you’re unable to make his Lower Mainland concerts or you live on Vancouver Island. You’re in luck as well. Green also has two concerts at the Royal Theatre in Victoria on the 15th and 16th featuring the same two special guests listed above.
Ticket prices for the Vancouver show start at $54.25. To purchase tickets and view available seating, visit ticketmaster.ca.
