The Saints and Sinners tour (or #saintsandsinners2020tour) was announced on Monday morning through a video shared to each band’s social media platform, in which animated versions of the frontmen from the respective groups engage in a comedic conference call before announcing the trek.
The tour kicks off on June 26 in Penticton, B.C., and concludes five weeks later in St. John’s, N.L., on July 30.
The tetrad of talent will play three festivals as part of the tour, including the Calgary Stampede (July 6) and Ottawa’s annual Bluesfest (July 18).
“We’ve been on festivals and tours together over the years, but this unique shared bill with all four acts in a different order every night is going to be killer. We can’t wait to get this rolling!”
Big Wreck’s Ian Thornley added: “It’s going to be so much fun getting out there with these guys every night. That’s a lot of hits, and a lot of rock n’ roll. What a show… it’s going to be a big summer!”
“I’m not sure that there’s a single concert-goer out there that can handle what’s going to happen when all four of our bands are firing on all cylinders night after night,” said The Tea Party singer and guitarist Jeff Martin. “This is a tour not to be missed. Mark my words.”
Headstones’ Hugh Dillon concluded: “These bands, coast to coast, summer 2020, where the f–k do we sign up? Are you kidding me, this is a once in a lifetime rock and roll show!”
It’s unclear if any of the artists are planning on releasing new music ahead of the tour.
An exclusive artist presale for the Saints and Sinners 2020 Tour begins on Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 10 a.m. (local).
All remaining tickets (except festival dates) go on sale to the general public Friday, Jan. 24 at 10 a.m.
