Great Big Sea Light Up The Fall

Published: 2004-10-01
One of the most successful acts Newfoundland has offered the world, Great Big Sea just keep growing bigger and bigger. The four-piece has a tour of their home country coming up, with fellow East coaster Jimmy Rankin as the opening act. Touring their latest album 'Something Beautiful', Great Big Sea will hit a great number of Canadian cities - 27 in all. The band isn't just playing the major centres either, but performing in cities usually bypassed by other groups as well.

The tour kicked off on September 29th with two dates in Nanaimo, British Columbia, not finishing up until they hit St. John's, Newfoundland in the chilly month of December. In between the stadium stops, GBS will hit a bunch of morning television shows on the West Coast, where many of their dates are almost completely sold-out.

'Something Beautiful*' is the album that the boys of Great Big Sea are out to promote. Their sixth studio-album, 'Something Beautiful*' has produced hit tracks with 'When I Am King' and the current single 'Shines Right Through Me'.
