The Rolling Tundra Revue

Hearty Rockers Set to Tour the Nation

Don’t you just love when a cleverly named tour emerges in the dead of winter to roust us out our collective hibernation?

The Weakerthans are prepping an extensive tour of "America's toque" this spring with fellow countrymen Constantines. This extensive tour will take them from St John’s Newfoundland across the entire country to Victoria BC then north to end in the city of Whitehorse, Yukon. Over the course of the tour the bands will be performing almost 30 concerts in 21 different cities, expanding on the highly successful Inaugural Rolling Tundra Revue Tour of 2005.

Hey Londoners… Now we can check out the new London Music Hall and hopefully blow the rafters out of the dump, inaugural style!

Great news! This makes missing the Jeff Tweedy concert a lot better. Must look and see when tickets go on sale, because I'm there.

I'll keep you updated. I'm looking forward to seeing what the venue has to offer. I've seen pictures and it looks very nice from an audience perspective. Fantastic bill. I'm hoping they have some interesting tour souveniers.

Should beat Call the Office in the acoustics department at least.

Im glad you posted this. I had no idea this tour was going to take place.

I got my tix for the Calgary show last week and am uber-excited! The first time I saw either band was when they toured together and it was sublime - intimate venue, where I got right in front of the stage, and they all came together at the end to do some Dylan and Traveling Wilbury covers.

I can't wait to hear how the new hall in London fares.

Just got my tickets and there were only $25, which I thought was a good deal. Been a while since I've paid $ instead of £ ;)

I am intrigued with the venue too!

Thanks again for the heads up.

Allison - Great! I'm glad you were able to get tickets. From what I have seen of the venue, we will not be disappointed. I think it will be a great show.

I read today that Emm Gryner is playing a show there this weekend.

Barb - We shall compare notes once the shows happen. Certainly a dream line up for you considering your adoration for both bands.
