Our Lady Peace and I Mother Earth with Edwin – November 4
Two of Canada’s most beloved and best-selling bands, Our Lady Peace and I Mother Earth featuring Edwin, have announced a legendary cross-Canada tour, kicking off in Abbotsford, BC on Saturday, October 15 with special guests, The Standstills.
Having toured together in the mid-90’s for their breakthrough albums, Naveed (OLP) and Dig (IME), both bands are excited to reunite 20 years later to once again perform for their fans across the country.
“We’ve always had immense respect for IME,” commented Our Lady Peace frontman, Raine Maida. “From their very first album Dig, the tour that followed and the Edgefests after that they solidified themselves as a seminal CDN rock band. To share the stage again is exciting both for our common fans & selfishly for us as well.”
“We’re really excited to be going back out on the road with our friends in OLP,” added I Mother Earth drummer Christian Tanna. “This is something we discussed last year at a show we played together…that it felt `right’. Both bands have amazing fans that have been with us from the beginning. We actually toured together on our debut albums and have been friends ever since. When Edwin rejoined IME to do the Anniversary shows for Scenery and Fish we thought this would be a great way to do something fun for our fans, friends and actually…ourselves. I think I can speak for both bands and say that we can’t wait to get this started!”

Sam Roberts Band with special guest Adam Baldwin – November 16
Hailing from Montreal, Quebec, Sam Roberts is one of the most distinguished and decorated Canadian artists of the new millennium. Regarded by his first record label as an “uncompromising rock purist,” Roberts recorded and independently released his first EP in 2001. The Inhuman Condition included the breakthrough hits “Brother Down” and “Don’t Walk Away Eileen,” and became one of the bestselling independent releases in Canadian music history.
The success of The Inhuman Condition landed Roberts a deal with Universal Music and in 2003 he released his debut album, We Were Born In A Flame. Roberts subsequently won a trio of awards at the 2004 Junos for Album of the Year, Rock Album of the Year, and Artist of the Year. The 2006 release of Chemical City again garnered additional Juno Awards. By the end of the decade, Roberts was practically synonymous with Canadian rock.
Sam Roberts Band is set to release their sixth full-length album this Fall.
