Live Baby Live – Week of Feb. 19

It just never ends. Never. Ends. The stream of tour announcements is still going strong, and we’re now at the point where there are 3-4 shows to choose from on some dates — our calendar is starting to look as busy as a CEO’s! As suspected last week, The Police added a second Toronto date to their tour schedule, on July 23 (tickets on sale now)…good thing Sting practices tantric sex so he’ll have enough stamina for all of these dates. Sorry, bad visual…shake it off. We’re looking forward to the ever adorable Lily Allen, who will be back in town April 5, and is hopefully bringing a bigger setlist with her this time; Feist will be gracing us with her presence at Massey Hall on May 26, in support of her new album The Reminder; and Muse is apparently opening for My Chemical Romance on May 11, but since it’s not confirmed, we won’t get too excited yet (about Muse, not MCR).
Best bets for this week? The Apples in Stereo tonight at Lee’s should be a ton of fun. Congrats to our ticket winners, Michael, Melissa and Rob! Sparklehorse or Final Fantasy are both great choices for Friday evening, and Cuff The Duke will be bringing their alt-country goodness to the Horseshoe on Saturday.
