2011 Grammy Award Winners Switchfoot Announce Canadian Tour
April 05 2011

WILL BE JOINED BY HAMILTON’S THE REASON

San Diego based rockers Switchfoot have announced a national headlining tour of Canada in support of their Grammy Award winning album Hello Hurricane. Beginning at Toronto’s legendary Queen Elizabeth Theatre and ending in Vancouver’s venerable Vogue Theatre, Switchfoot’s two-week trek across Canada will see them touch the hearts of their fans and cement their legacy as one of North America’s premier live acts. Aiming to move and captivate the souls of music fans, Switchfoot will be playing tracks from their critically-acclaimed latest full length Hello Hurricane, as well as a handful of freshly recorded new tracks from their upcoming album Vice Verses.

When the lights go down at a concert, the intent for both the fans and the bands is clear: transcendence. Of course, this is easier said than done. There are many contributing factors but when you strip the gig down to its core, there is one thing that will elevate it into a timeless evening that will resonate forever: the music. With Switchfoot, the strength of their songs is such that their concerts carry enough emotional weight to sink any ship.

Switchfoot’s live show is an intense and inspirational experience that needs to be felt as much as it needs to be heard. The powerhouse Canadian alt-rock quintet The Reason will be joining Switchfoot with their energetic live show to make this tour an event not to be missed or forgotten.
