Raul Midon to Perform First Headlining Show in Toronto

Published: 2007-09-07
New Mexico born Raul Midon will be performing his first headlining show in Toronto at the newly titled Enwave Theatre (formerly the Harbourfront Centre) in October. Midon was signed in 2005 when record producer Arif Mardin interrupted his live audition with a recording contract in hand. Midon has toured with Jason Mraz and recently with Joss Stone, where he was given a standing ovation from audiences at Massey Hall. He has since sold out shows at the Mod Club and El Mocambo, which critics have called incredible because there was been no attention from popular radio.

Midon has often been compared to Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers, as he has been blind since birth, which has only added to the miracle of his performance. Midon will be performing songs off his latest release A World Within a World which has been said is rich in acoustic tradition and showcases the singer's dynamic soul-infected voice and astounding guitar work.

Here's where he'll be performing:

October 11, Montreal, QC - Metropolis (Le Savoy)
October 13, Toronto, ON - Enwave Theater
