City and Colour, acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green, has announced a Canadian arena tour that will include a stop at Canadian Tire Centre on Friday, Feb. 23. The tour is in support of Green’s critically praised seventh studio album The Love Still Held Me Near released earlier this year and will be his first cross-Canada tour in five years. Joining City and Colour are special guests Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats and Ruby Waters. Last month, Green performed to a sold-out crowd at Budweiser Stage in Toronto. The evening marked his 12th performance at the iconic venue, the most for any Canadian artist with the exception of Blue Rodeo, and the only independent artist to do so.
City and Colour is proud to partner with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket sold will go towards local organizations safeguarding people experiencing homelessness and ending the cycle of homelessness and poverty. See a list of organizations below.

About Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats
It took Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats less than five years to become one of the most recognizable new forces in contemporary rock ’n’ roll. Since 2015, Rateliff has led his denim-clad, horn-flanked Night Sweats, supplying the zeal of a whiskey-chugging Pentecostal preacher to songs about this world’s shared woes. They’ve had hits, sure, but their combustible mix of soul and rock quickly cemented them as the rare generational band who balanced ecstatic live shows with engrossing and rich records. To wit, is there any other modern act capable of revving up stadium crowds for The Rolling Stones while also appearing on Saturday Night Live and CMT Crossroads and at NPR’s Tiny Desk in short order?
When Rateliff returned from his pandemic-truncated solo tour in March 2020, he struggled with the same question that vexed so many of us then—what now? Fortunately, he returned to his Colorado homestead and penned a set of songs that synthesized his introspection with his anthemic inclinations. The result is The Future, the third Night Sweats album but the first to capture this octet’s true depth and breadth. An instant classic of 11 songs, the album presents something more sustainable, interesting, and indeed open—a songwriter and band growing into bigger questions and sounds, into a future that allows them to remain recognizable but be so much more compelling than some denim-clad caricature.
