City and Colour, acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green, has announced his return to the stage for the first time since February 2020, after an unprecedented year that profoundly affected people worldwide and brought live entertainment as we knew it to a halt. Green will perform FIVE intimate, solo live concerts December 9, 10, 11, 12 & 14 at Massey Hall, upon its reopening after the venue’s most significant renovation in its 127-year history.
Massey Hall holds special meaning to Green. He has previously performed 7 shows at the historic venue, all of which sold-out. It is fitting that Green’s first live performance announcement, on the heels of a worldwide pandemic, is in his home of Toronto, Ontario.
City and Colour has partnered with PLUS1 to collect $1 from every ticket sold, which will be donated to Indspire. To date, Green has donated over $80,000, to Indspire’s Building Brighter Futures Scholarship program through the City and Colour Indigenous Student Bursary and the Alexisonfire Indigenous Music Bursary, which were established in 2019 with the goal of supporting students as they complete their education and achieve academic success.
Over the course of six studio albums, Dallas Green has compiled a canon ripe with songs born of adoration and devotion amassing a legion of fans worldwide and garnering him 3 JUNOs, including two Songwriter of the Year awards, plus 1 Triple Platinum, 2 Double Platinum, 1 Platinum, and 1 Gold certification at home in Canada. Alongside these accomplishments, Green has been awarded Platinum-certification for all four of Alexisonfire’s full-length records.
City and Colour’s last studio album A Pill For Loneliness – released on Green’s Still Records, an imprint of Dine Alone Records – debuted at #1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums Chart, his 4th consecutive chart-topper in Canada. His previous #1 LP If I Should Go Before You made serious waves internationally debuting at #16 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Chart and #5 in Australia where Green’s LP Little Hell was certified GOLD. In 2014, Green collaborated with international superstar Alecia Moore (aka P!nk) on a new project titled You+Me. The duo’s acclaimed Platinum-certified first record, rose ave., debuted at #4 on the U.S. Top 200 Chart, #1 in Canada, #2 in Australia culminating in memorable performances on The Ellen Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
