BARENAKED LADIES

Canadian multi-platinum pop-rock band BARENAKED LADIES have announced details of their forthcoming return to London’s Royal Albert Hall on Easter Saturday April 11 2020.

The band last played there in 2001 on the Maroon tour. BNL lead singer Ed Robertson says: We’re excited to be returning to the UK, one of our favourite places to tour. From King Tut’s to Glastonbury, and every hall in between! When you’ve played thousands of shows, things can get a little blurry… but you never forget The Albert Hall.” Special guests for the show include friends KT Tunstall and Boothby Graffoe who have both toured in the US with BNL as part of their Last Summer On Earth tour. General sale tickets go on sale on July 5th at 10am and range in price from £25 to £65.  A limited quantity of VIP packages will be available for purchase starting Wednesday, July 3rd from 10 AM  – here – which Include soundcheck access as well as a meet and greet with the band.  Royal Albert Hall ticket pre-sale begins at 10am on Thursday July 4th and can be accessed here.

General sale tickets can be accessed here from 5th July at 10am.

Barenaked Ladies recently released a special digital-only extended EP called ‘Fake Nudes: Naked’ – artwork HERE – featuring acoustic renditions of eight songs from the band’s fifteenth studio album, Fake Nudes which was released in 2017. To accompany this release there are videos to accompany every track, accessible here.  Additionally, the band released the Edward Pond-directed performance video of “Navigate,” last week, which can be seen here .

 

The EP and video releases coincide with the band’s appearances on the “Group Therapy Tour,” a 44- US city run that sees Barenaked Ladies summering on the road with Hootie & The Blowfish.

BNL (vocalist/guitarist Ed Robertson, drummer Tyler Stewart, keyboardist Kevin Hearn and bassist Jim Creeggan) recently made news by recording a special version of “The Big Bang Theory” theme song for the TV series’ historic finale. That came a dozen years after executive producers Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady first asked the band to compose the theme. Ed Robertson recorded an acoustic rendition for the momentous occasion, which can be seen by clicking HERE and heard on all streaming platforms (along with an instrumental version) by clicking HERE.  Hours after the finale aired, the band performed the original theme on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” – click HERE to watch.

Over the course of their remarkable career, Barenaked Ladies have sold over 15 million albums, written multiple top 20 hits (including radio staples “One Week,” “Pinch Me,” “Brian Wilson, “If I Had $1,000,000”), garnered 2 Grammy nominations, won 8 JUNO Awards, had Ben & Jerry’s name an ice cream after them (“If I Had 1,000,000 Flavours”), participated in the first-ever “space-to-earth musical collaboration” with astronaut Chris Hadfield, and garnered an international fan base whose members number in the millions. In 2018, the band celebrated their 30th anniversary by touring in support of Fake Nudes, a much-deserved induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame (with Rush vocalist Geddy Lee handling the honors), and a proclamation from Toronto Mayor John Tory declaring October 1st “Barenaked Ladies Day.”
