Happy (soon-to-be) 20th anniversary to Silverstein!
You guys don’t look a day over angsty 15 (even though your profile says ‘original emo since 2000’).
On Monday (Oct. 7), the Canadian band announced plans to embark on a massive anniversary tour during the first couple of months of 2020. Simply dubbed the “Silverstein 20th Anniversary Tour” (because why not?!), the trek will find the group performing at venues across the United States and Canada.
The newly-announced gigs include shows in Montreal, Quebec, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, New Orleans, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Detroit, and more.
The 33-stop outing begins on Feb. 28 at the London Music Hall in London, Ontario, and concludes a month and a half later on April 11 at the Danforth in Toronto.
“It feels absolutely incredible to be celebrating 20 years as a band!” says vocalist
Shane Told about the upcoming tour.
“It feels like just yesterday we were starting this thing in Josh’s basement –
singing out of Shel Silverstein books and National Geographic magazines – and here we
are embarking on our biggest tour ever.”
And Told wasn’t kidding when he said it would be their biggest tour ever. The shows will reportedly be split into three different sets; the most significant hits set, which will include a slew of their biggest songs; the Discovering the Waterfront set, which will find the band playing their sophomore album in full; and last but not least, an acoustic set.
Four Year Strong and I the Mighty will join Silverstein during the excursion.
General admission and VIP tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday, Oct. 11, at 10 a.m. local time. More information about the journey can be found here.
The massive North American tour itinerary comes a week after the band began taking a stroll down memory lane with old-school photos from the early 2000s.
The full list of upcoming shows can be found below.
