2011 Grammy Award Winners Switchfoot Announce Canadian Tour April 05 2011
WILL BE JOINED BY HAMILTONĂ˘€™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 TorontoĂ˘€™s legendary Queen Elizabeth Theatre and ending in VancouverĂ˘€™s venerable Vogue Theatre, SwitchfootĂ˘€™s two-week trek across Canada will see them touch the hearts of their fans and cement their legacy as one of North AmericaĂ˘€™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.
SwitchfootĂ˘€™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.
