Beastie Boys Bring 'The 5 Boroughs' To Canada

Published: 2004-09-23
To support their newest release 'To The 5 Boroughs', New York City's finest, The Beastie Boys, have scheduled a fall tour of North America. During the 16 date tour the Boys will make a total of three Canadian stops. The first stop of the North American leg of tour is in Fairfax, Virginia on October 8th.

The three Canadian gigs, all on the eastern side of the country, will be the last that the Beastie Boys play before they head off to Europe in December.

One of the most highly anticipated albums of the decade, 'To The 5 Boroughs' was released in June of this year. The record became the Beastie Boys sixth full-length album in their nearly twenty year career. 'To The 5 Boroughs' is the first album that the members of the Beastie Boys (Ad Rock, Mike D, and MCA) have produced completely by themselves.

'Ch-Check It Out' was the first single lifted off 'To The 5 Boroughs' and became a major chart success, elevating the Boys back to the height of popularity. Later in the year the song 'Triple Trouble' was released as a single, the video featuring footage from Canada's own Much Music Video Awards.

The Beastie Boys' upcoming Canadian dates:

November 07 Montreal, QC - Bell Centre
November 08 Toronto, ON - Air Canada Centre
November 10 Ottawa, ON - Corel Centre
