Following the release of 7th studio album, The Love Still Held Me Near, acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green AKA City and Colour has announced a major headline UK tour for this autumn culminating at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Thursday 2nd November.
Over the course of seven 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 4 JUNOs, including 2 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.
City and Colour’s new album The Love Still Held Me Near finds the songwriter revealing more of himself amidst new textures, arrangements and soundscapes not previously heard on City and Colour albums. While it was born out of navigating a trying time, it is an album of hope, redemption and inspiration, taking a trip from the emotional depths through the other side and finding a way to, as the closing track says, “Begin Again”.
City and Colour’s new live dates follows the acclaimed return of Alexisonfire last year who released their first studio album in 13 years and saw a massive sold-out tour across the UK & Mainland Europe. Tickets for City and Colour 2023 go on sale Friday 21st April at 10am via https://gigst.rs/CAC and www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
