Magneta Lane Head West with Sloan

Published: 2005-04-04
One of Canada's most established acts and another that's on the rise will partner up and tour across the country this spring. Toronto trio, Magneta Lane, have grabbed opening slot for the Western half of Sloan's cross-Canada tour. The two pop-rock acts will be paired up for a total of seven dates, starting May 5th in Vancouver, and ending May 14th in Winnipeg.

The reason for Sloan's homeland jaunt (with a few US shows thrown in) is to support their upcoming "greatest hits" album - it's the very first time the band has compiled all their best in their over decade long career. The CD/DVD has been titled "A Sides Win: The Best of Sloan 1994-2004" and will be in stores May 10th.

Magneta Lane is touring behind their "Constant Lover" EP, which has gained the girls a lot of attention, both at home and abroad. Their stint on the Sloan tour will see the band play one of their most extensive tours of the west; Magneta Lane also have a few shows lined-up around Ontario for those on the other side of the country.

May 5 Vancouver, BC - Commodore
May 8 Victoria, BC - Strathcona Hotel
May 10 Edmonton, AB - The Starlite
May 11 Calgary, AB - The Whiskey
May 12 Saskatoon, SK - Louis Pub
May 13 Regina, SK - The State
May 14 Winnipeg, MB - Cowboys

April 26 Windsor, ON - Phog Lounge
April 27 Hamilton, ON - Underground
