Sonic Youth Tour in Canada

Published: 2004-06-17
Seminal eighties band Sonic Youth brightened this year of 2004 with a new record called 'Sonic Nurse'. The album was just dropped on June 8th, marking the release of their nineteenth record. As it is with most bands, along with a new album comes the tour to support it.

To showcase 'Sonic Nurse' Sonic Youth will be playing as part of Lollapalooza, and they will also be hitting a few cities on their own. The five-piece will be playing three more Canadian cities, in addition to their Toronto Lollapalooza date. All in all, the band will be hitting 25 North American cities this summer.

Although Sonic Youth has been releasing records steadily since it's inception in 1981, the album the band is best known for is still 1988's 'Daydream Nation'. The album includes 'Teen Age Riot' and 'Silver Rocket' – songs that define an entire generation. With 'Daydream Nation', Sonic Youth helped alternative rock to explode into the mainstream.

Sonic Youth's upcoming Canadian dates:

July 13 Vancouver – Commodore Ballroom
August 4 Montreal – Metropolis
August 5 Toronto – Molson Amphitheatre (Lollapalooza)
August 6 Ottawa – Capital Hall
