Anyone going to these tours?

Off With Their Heads kicks off a western Canadian tour next weekend in Winnipeg and I couldn't be more excited! Pretty much the only good punk band (aside from The Flatliners and Strung Out) that has decided to come through this year. Buy tickets and support them!

The same weekend the Stars/Metric tour kicks off in BC. I doubt I'll go, but I have a feeling some people on this site are stoked for this tour.

Also in BC that weekend, Comeback Kid will kick off a western Canadian tour with Backtrack/Expire.

Gallows will start their first ever cross-Canada tour on Tuesday, possibly because Wade MacNeil is now in the band. I know I'm definitely going to be there to check them out on November 16.

Lifestory: Monologue
started their farewell tour in Kitchener on Friday and the band will be touring through other parts of southern Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes this month.

Despite the fact that Sum 41 is from Canada, the band is only playing three cities on the Does This Look Infected? tour. The first stop is Toronto on November 8.

Any shows I'm missing?

I'm guessing you couldn't get tickets?

Anyone else going to see Man Overboard at Sneaky Dee's in Toronto on the 17th?

Sum 41 always shits on Canada, haven't been to Winnipeg in at least 5 years. One scheduled show, but they pulled out.. Excited for Metric/Stars though!

Yeah, I'm glad I got to see them on the original DTLI? tour at the Burton Cummings Theatre 9 years ago. They used to play here all the time, before Dave left.

Nope. I have bought my tickets the day they were available. Quebec City sold out in a week or so.

Last time I saw them was at Bamboozle 09. They were doing a Metallica set as well. That was so good!

I play in a band called NoDirectionHome we kinda sound like touche amore defeater and old Thrice... we're hitting the studio on the last week of November... I just got back from the show if you have a chance to go see Gallows in Canada on this tour just fucking GO. I spent an amazing night their set is brutal and extremely well executed. Also I'm happy we got a good response from the audience in general I truly spent a memorable night!!!! Fuck I love music.
