Scissor Sisters Party Hard

Published: 2004-07-12
Electrorock outfit Scissor Sisters will make a few stops in Canada during their ten date North American tour. The five-piece will kick off the tour in Toronto on July 20th, before jetting across the country to be in Vancouver the very next day. After the Sisters wrap up their U.S. dates, they will be heading across the Atlantic to take part in numerous European festivals.

The music Scissor Sisters will be performing for their upcoming dates will be taken off of the group's self-titled debut album. Included on 'Scissor Sisters' is the band's first single 'Laura', and a cover of Pink Floyd's 'Comfortably Numb'. The record was released this May via Universal records on this side of the pond.

An opportunity to see the band live is an event best not missed – Scissor Sisters are becoming renowned for their flamboyant and energetic live shows. The band, comprised of one female and four males, was inspired by burlesque and drag queens – in other words, they're as flashy as can be and much, much larger than life.

Although Scissor Sisters have mainly had success in Britain, they are trying their best to make North Americans join the party. Much like Franz Ferdinand, these five really, really like dancing.

Get your rock on at these places during these times:

July 20 Toronto – Lee's Palace
July 21 Vancouver – Richard's on Richards
