The Frames And Josh Ritter Co-Headline North American Tour

Published: 2005-09-15
Irish rockers The Frames will be heading to North American shores this fall, co-headlining a trip around the continent with their good friend, singer and songwriter Josh Ritter.

Ritter, it seems, has The Frames' lead singer Glen Hansard (whom you may remember as the gawky guitarist in the classic 1990 movie The Commitments) to thank for kick-starting his career. Seems Hansard spied Ritter performing at an open-mic night in Boston a few years ago and promptly asked the Idaho native along as an opening act for The Frames on a tour of their native Ireland, where Ritter would eventually score a Top 40 hit.

Now, the two acts are set to tour the US and Canada together, with many a finely crafted tune between them. The Frames will have their fifth full-length album, the recently released Burn The Maps in tow, while Ritter is still supporting his third record, 2003's Hello Starling.

Here's where you can catch the two bands together in Canada:

October 19, Montreal, QC - Club Soda
October 20, Toronto, ON - Phoenix Concert Theatre
