Off the heels of a completely sold out Canadian Tour, Juno-nominated alternative rock band, The Glorious Sons, announce their homecoming show at the Rogers K-Rock Centre February 24, 2018. The band sold out all 19 dates of their cross-country tour including four nights at The Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto. The Glorious Sons have been touring in support of their recently-released sophomore album Young Beauties And Fools which came out October 13 through Blackbox/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The album features the anthemic single “Everything Is Alright” which is just claimed the number one spot at Alternative radio, affirming this band’s place in the alternative world.
First of all, it’s good to be home. Secondly, to play a stage like this where I’ve seen so many great artists perform over the last ten years is an honour and a privilege. Three years ago this wasn’t even fathomable. We’re coming off our biggest Canadian tour to date, and to come back home and celebrate with our friends, our family and our city is extremely fulfilling. – Brett Emmons
