“…moving, melodramatic songs delivered with candor and confidence by Mr. Green in a sweet, soaring voice. An excellent guitarist, he’s equally adept in a sparse solo folk setting and out in front of powerhouse players…” — The Wall Street Journal
“…tells a story with a sincerity and fluency that is truly masterful.” — BBC

City and Colour will perform in an intimate theatre environment visiting 25 cities from coast-to-coast, many for the first time, coinciding with Canada’s 150th anniversary.

City and Colour is working with Plus1 to collect $1 from the sale of each ticket that will be donated to Canada’s music education charity MusiCounts (Band Aid Program). Green has often mentioned how invaluable the support from his teachers was as he started to consider music as a career path. The Band Aid Program equips school music programs with the necessities to give students the chance to discover their talent, empowering them with skills that will help them excel both in the classroom and beyond.
City and Colour is undeniably one of the biggest groundswell stories to emerge from Canada. Green’s achievements include 3 JUNO Awards — including two SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR awards (2009, 2012), 7 Platinum-certified albums and 3 Gold-certified albums in Canada (City and Colour, Alexisonfire, and You+Me). Green’s latest and 5th City and Colour studio release, If I Should Go Before You (Dine Alone Records) debuted #1 on the Top 200 Soundscan, his third consecutive chart-topper in Canada. The LP also made serious waves internationally debuting at #16 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Chart and #5 in Australia where Green’s LP Little Hell went GOLD. In 2014, Green collaborated with international superstar Alecia Moore (aka P!nk) on a new project titled You+Me. The duo’s acclaimed debut, rose ave., debuted at #4 on the U.S. Top 200 Chart, #1 in Canada, #2 in Australia culminating in memorable performances on Ellen and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Having performed to countless sold-out crowds around the world, City and Colour recently headlined his first arena tour across Canada, including 2 sold out, consecutive nights at Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto.
City and Colour returns with a full band line-up to perform at a very special all Canadian line-up in celebration of Canada’s 150th Birthday on Sunday, July 2, along with Blue Rodeo, The Strumbellas, Stars and Dear Rouge at the Commons at Butler’s Barracks National Historic Site in Niagara-On-The-Lake. The event will be hosted by Wayne & Daryl from critically-acclaimed Canadian sitcom Letterkenny and marks a “Coming Home” for Dallas Green, a native of St. Catharines who last performed at the national historic site in 2013.
