C&C Tour DatesCITY AND COLOUR ANNOUNCES U.S. HEADLINE TOUR

Upcoming Appearances at
Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Voodoo Music Experience

“Green’s stark meditations...are strangely uplifting expressions of compassion.” – SPIN

“Little Hell is certainly City and Colour’s most accomplished work to date. Green once again explores folk territory ... while other songs evoke blues and country. Yet for all this diversity, Hell remains a coherent and engaging record...”
**** - Alternative Press



(June 20, 2011) - CITY AND COLOUR today announces an extensive U.S. tour set to begin November 3, 2011 in Los Angeles, California and ending on December 10th in Washington, DC at the venerable 9:30 Club. City and Colour will be touring in support of Little Hell, which was released on June 7 (Vagrant/Dine Alone) and debuted at #27on the Billboard Top 200 chart and #7 on the Top Independent Albums chart - the highest US debut ever for Canadian singer/songwriter Dallas Green.

Pre-sales begin tomorrow, Tuesday June 21 at 10am local time in each city and run until Thursday June 23, while pre-sale quantities last. Fans will be able to purchase tickets during pre-sale straight from cityandcolour.ca/tour <http://cityandcolour.ca/tour>

Tickets will be available to purchase on their own or with added bonus items which include the Little Hell CD, 18 x 24 metallic screen printed tour poster and a 10" colored vinyl. The 10" features a live version of "sometimes (I wish)" on side A and two untitled tracks on side B. While the featured tracks are the same for both the USA and European pre-sales, colors are limited edition pressings specific for each tour leg.

All those that purchase the pre-sale package including a ticket, poster and 10" vinyl will be entered into a drawing to win a Meet & Greet with Dallas Green at the show they are attending. General public on-sales begin Friday June 24. Exact times and outlets will be listed at cityandcolour.ca <http://cityandcolour.ca/> following Tuesday's pre-sale.

Little Hell – named after the album’s title track, a song that explores the little heavens and little hells that comprise a relationship - is the highly anticipated follow-up to 2008’s Bring Me Your Love, which was certified platinum in Green’s native Canada, where Little Hell debuted at #1 and has already received gold certification.

City and Colour has the unique distinction of having sold out every single headlining show the band has ever performed in the U.S. and this tour will be the first time fans in several cities will have the chance to hear Green’s one-in-a-million voice live.

Green – who has won Juno’s (Canadian Grammy’s) for ALTERNATIVE ALBUM OF THE YEAR (2007), SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR (2009) – has enjoyed incredible success around the globe - his City and Colour show at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall this past April sold out in mere hours.

City and Colour has spent most of 2011 performing at festivals including a stellar performance at Stubb’s during SXSW, Coachella and recently received "what sounds like a hero's welcome" at Sasquatch according to NPR <http://www.npr.org/2011/05/23/136580847/sasquatch-2011-city-and-colour-live-in-concert> . Green will next be performing at the legendary Glastonbury Festival then coming back to the US for Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and the Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans before the US tour begins.

Well the new album is full band so I'm guessing the tour will include a touring band.

That is a lot of touring to be doing to not hit the Northwest at all.
