Published Dec 04, 2008From his infectious melodies to his down-to-earth style, nothing screams "Canadian" like the bearded bro-down jams of amiable rocker Sam Roberts. So it's only natural that Sam Roberts will tour Canada this January, band in tow, and it will be awesome. So awesome, in fact, that many of the dates have already sold out.
Before they test their snow tires across the country, however, Roberts and band will be warming up with a show in Newfoundland on December 13, where they will be joined by Matt Mays & El Torpedo and Hey Rosetta. Then, on January 8 and 9 the real tour begins at the other ocean, with two sold out shows in Victoria. Montreal's the Stills will be with them for entire Canadian tour, where they will travel from BC to Ottawa.
Roberts is still touring in support of his recent Love At The End of The World album, but if you want in on the action you better get some tickets soon. Sam Roberts Band tour dates:
