City and Colour launch U.S. tour with back-to-back nights in Nashville

City and Colour, acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green, kicks off the U.S. run of a North American Tour with back-to-back nights in Nashville, including a performance at Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Polk Theater on Oct. 10.

Tickets for City and Colour at TPAC are on sale now at TPAC.org, by phone at 615-782-4040 and at the TPAC Box Office, 505 Deaderick St., in downtown Nashville.

Following a full band show at The Basement East on Oct. 9, the TPAC performance features Green performing an intimate solo show with stripped-down iterations of songs spanning his award-winning catalogue – something fans have been requesting for years.

Supporting City and Colour in the U.S. will be B.C. based songwriter Ben Rogers, the first signing to Green’s Still Records (solo shows), and alternative singer-songwriter Ruby Waters (full band shows). In keeping with Green’s penchant for showcasing emerging artists that he believes strongly in, he personally chose both Rogers and Waters as openers.

City and Colour also recently debuted a new song, “Astronaut,” produced by three-time Grammy-winning Jacquire King (Kings Of Leon, Tom Waits, Modest Mouse, Norah Jones) and mastered by Emily Lazar (Beck, Coldplay, Dolly Parton, The Chainsmokers), the first female mastering engineer to win a Grammy for best engineered album (2019). “Astronaut” is the first original music from City and Colour in almost four years and is featured on his upcoming sixth studio album to be released this Fall on Green’s newly minted Still Records, an imprint of Dine Alone Records.

“I always think of the relationships in my life that have been fractured because I ended up doing what I do for a living,” says Green regarding the inspiration for the new song. “I’m always gone, wandering around and singing songs. However, it weighs on my family and friends. I’m asking for ‘one more year.’ I left home at 21 to go play my guitar. It’s lonely, but it’s because I yearn to wander. I’m aware of how lucky I am.”

City and Colour has partnered with PLUS1 for all North American tour dates. $1 from every ticket sold in Canada will be donated to both MusiCounts & Indspire. $1 from every ticket sold in U.S. will be donated to Crisis Text Line.

City and Colour is undeniably one of the biggest groundswell stories to emerge from Canada. Over the course of five studio albums, Green has compiled a canon ripe with songs born of adoration and devotion amassing a legion of fans worldwide and garnering him three JUNOs, including two Songwriter of the Year awards, plus three Double Platinum, one Platinum, and one Gold certification at home in Canada.

Alongside these accomplishments, Green has been awarded four Platinum-certified studio albums as a member of Alexisonfire. City and Colour’s last studio album, “If I Should Go Before You,” debuted at #1, his third consecutive chart-topper in Canada. The LP also 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.” In addition to widespread commercial success, “If I Should Go Before You” received critical acclaim from notable international media.
