City and Colour will return to the U.S. for a string of dates in early 2017. The Canuck alt-rocker (a.k.a. for Dallas Green’s solo project) will hit over a dozen cities in continued support of his 5th studio album If I Should Go Before You.
Pollstar reports on Jan. 12 that the tour will be the multi-Juno winner's first live solo outing of 2017. The C&C trek will take place following Green's reunion shows with his sometimes band Alexisonfire in Australia and will primarily hit markets in the Southeastern U.S.
The fun begins March 6 in Birmingham, Alabama, at Iron City. Green's routing will includes visits to Atlanta, Baton Rouge and Orlando, Florida, before wrapping up March 23 in Athens, Georgia, at Georgia Theatre.
Select presales will begin Thurs., Jan. 12 at 10:00 a.m. local time. Tickets go on sale to the public starting Fri., Jan. 13 at 10:00 a.m. local time. For more information, click here.
“We're heading to the South East USA for tour March 2017, said Green in an update posted at his official City and Colour website. “Can't wait to get back on the road.”
Green is currently Down Under performing with the reunited line up of Alexisonfire. The hardcore band kicked off the romp with a headline appearance on Jan. 13 at UNIFY Gathering 2017 in Victoria, Australia. Their tour of Australia and New Zealand with special guests the Dirty Nils continues on Jan. 13 in Adelaide, Australia, at Adelaide Entertainment Centre and will wrap up Jan. 23 in Auckland, New Zealand, at Powerstation.
Alexisonfire released their first album since disbanding in 2012 titled Live at Copps. Released in multiple formats on Feb. 12, 2016 via Dine Alone Music, the set was recorded during their 2012 farewell tour in Hamilton, Ontario, at Copps Coliseum.
Following his dates with Alexisonfire and U.S.solo run, Green will head home to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday. C&C will headline the event, which takes place July 2 at Niagara On The Lake, Ontario, at Butler's Barracks National Historic Site with guests Blue Rodeo, the Strumbellas and Dear Rouge.
