Announces First Major U.S. Tour In Over Seven Years
With Special Guest Wesley Stace
New Album Due in Fall 2018
This Fall, one of Canada’s most distinctive, recognizable and powerful tenors STEVEN PAGE will be returning to the U.S. for one of his biggest tours in years. Following a string of rip-roaring shows in the UK in 2017, Steven will be bringing his trio (rounded out with Craig Northey and Kevin Fox) to the States to circle the continent. Also known for being the co-founder and former lead vocalist/songwriter for multi-platinum selling band Barenaked Ladies who were inducted just this year in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, Steven will also be adding singer/songwriter Wesley Stace as support. For more information and on-sale dates, please go to: https://www.stevenpage.com/events/ (tour dates below).
“After a long seven years, I’m excited to finally do a proper tour of the US again, and this one will be the most extensive of my solo career to date,” Steve says. “With my friends Craig Northey (Odds) on guitar and Kevin Fox on cello, I’ll be playing music from my upcoming album, Discipline: Heal Thyself, Pt. II as well as lots of songs from my BNL and solo catalogues. I’m also thrilled to be bringing along my friend Wesley Stace, with whom I did my first American tour back in 1992!“
Steven recently reunited with Barenaked Ladies for their induction into theCanadian Music Hall Of Fame at the 2018 Juno Awards this March, nearly 30 years since their genesis. Of the induction, Steven posted on social media: “I have so many great memories of my years with Barenaked Ladies, from our beginning in our parents’ basements to playing our songs for audiences all over the world. I’m incredibly proud of all we achieved together. I’m humbled by our induction into the Hall of Fame.”
Since leaving Barenaked Ladies in 2009, Steven has continued his artistic evolution with a diverse array of solo projects. He has composed six theatrical scores for Canada’s Stratford Festival, including 2016’s production of Macbeth, collaborated and toured with Toronto’s innovative Art of Time ensemble and journeyed across North America as host of TV’s The Illegal Eater while continuing to write, release and perform his original music. Steven is currently working on a Stratford-commissioned musical he’s writing with Governor General’s Award-winner Daniel MacIvor and a new album of his own original material entitled Discipline: Heal Thyself, Pt. II is scheduled for release this year.
