As concert announcements keep on coming, the Commodore Ballroom looks to be busy into the new year and beyond.
Vancouver’s Mother Mother was the first act to announce multiple night stands at the celebrated venue. Now the popular Sam Roberts Band is going to roll in for a pair of back-to-back gigs with thrashy openers MONOWHALES.
Roberts, who has recorded past albums in Vancouver, is always a strong concert draw in the Lower Mainland. Past performances at the Commodore, Surrey Fusion Festival and the Squamish Valley Music Festival and others have been hard-rocking good times for all.
Since the pandemic hit, the group hasn’t had a chance to play tracks from its latest album, All Of Us, anywhere but online. The seventh full length album from the Montreal band continues on the string of acclaimed workaday albums from the group, whose live shows are raved about by first time viewers and long time followers alike.
Now fans can enjoy hits such as We’re All In This Together, Ascention and Take Me Away in the cosy confines of one of Western Canada’s most celebrated venues.
