In Winnipeg? it is early, but what do you say his chances of hitting up Winnipeg during his upcoming tour? I plan on getting a shirt made that just says, "Sodamntired" so you can say "hey! you're the guy who posts on The Bored! i hate you. but I know you!"

A couple of dates have been announced so far:


Nov 6 - Duncan, BC - Cowichan Theatre - www.cowichantheatre.bc.ca

Dec 7 - Peterborough, ON - Showplace Theatre - www.showplace.org


I'm assuming the whole tour will be posted soon (so maybe doing it piecemeal is kind of pointless).

BC show is on the venue's events page (scroll down the right frame). According to the website, tickets go on sale September 18th at the venue's box office.


Peterborough show is on the venue's announcement sheet for their Autumn/Winter schedule (PDF). However, the Peterborough sheet says it's actually on Dec 14th. An article quoting it said the 7th, so I'm not sure what's going on there.

Can you link me to the article please? Thanks for posting these ;). About to post some other dates too.



It cites the venue's website, so I'm thinking the 14th is probably the correct date. (I found another PDF on the Showplace's website that has it marked as the 14th.)

Tour Dates

The Canadian leg of the tour in support of the record begins in early November and finishes in the third week of December. The tour will be announced in its entirety, so stay tuned for information about cities, venues, etc.


=o So he's going to do a quick tour of the US, it seems?

The West End Cultural Center in Winnipeg has undergone a multi-million dollar renovation over the last year, I was fortunate enough to see The Dears perform there when I was visiting at the end of May this year. I don't know what the sound quality was before the reno, but it's crisp as hell now. An MG show would be excellent there.


I was at the Massey Hall show that was recorded for the live album, his vocals were drowned out half the time. It was incredible to hear the quality of the recording, night and day in my opinion. If I had my way, he'd play at Roy Thomson Hall next time he rolls through Toronto. I've never heard a cleaner sounding show anywhere else, other than Convocation Hall on U of T campus.
