After a long hiatus from performing live in front of fans old and new alike, Canadian Music Hall of Famer Steven Page performs at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, November 13.
The former frontman and instantly recognizable voice of the Barenaked Ladies, Steven Page will be joined on stage by two long-time bandmates and friends, both accomplished Canadian musicians in their own right. Craig Northey (Odds) brings his vocals, guitar and banter to the band, as does cellist, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Kevin Fox.
“The greatest thing is just to be able to play and make music with other human beings, and human beings that I love, all over again,” Page said.
His fifth solo album, DISCIPLINE: HEAL THYSELF, PT. II, was released in 2018, followed by tours of the UK, Ireland and the U.S. with bandmates Northey and Fox. In 2019, he toured Canada from coast to coast and an extensive tour of the U.S. Northwest, Southeast, Northeast and Texas. The Steven Page Trio – Live in Concert DVD was filmed during this tour and has been airing on American Public Television stations across the U.S.
Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit and live performances were largely shelved for more than a year and a half. Far from ever being idle, Page never stopped performing. It was only the venue that changed. Rather than sold-out theatres all over the world, he invited the whole world to come to his place (virtually).
“I started doing (livestreamed shows from home) at the end of April last year, and I haven’t stopped,” said Page. “I just did my 73rd show this last weekend over Zoom.”
