Canadian music icon and former Barenaked Ladies frontman Steven Page will be touring the UK for the first time in 10 years this October and November. The UK tour, which is already starting to sell out will visit Emmanuel United Reform Church in Cambridge on 23rd October, tickets on sale here (* note there are two ticket options).
Steven has continued his artistic evolution with a diverse array of solo projects since leaving Barenaked Ladies in 2009. To that end, he has composed six theatrical scores for Canada’s Stratford Festival, including 2016’s production of Macbeth, collaborated and toured with Toronto’s innovative Art of Time ensemble and journeyed across North America as host of TV’s The Illegal Eater while continuing to write, release and perform his original music.
Steven released his latest opus, HEAL THYSELF, PT. I: INSTINCT in 2016 followed by a two week critically acclaimed residency at New York City’s storied Café Carlyle. With the album Steven firmly established his own identity as a song writing craftsman, continuing his tradition marrying the sweet with the tart in a way that can sound deceptively palatable.
The new UK tour shows will see Steven return in trio form with long term musical mates Craig Northey and Kevin Fox on guitar and cello with new songs, renewed vigour and with his trademark Canadian satire at full steam.
