Steven Page and Kevin Hearn perform together in Toronto

Steven Page performed a solo show at Toronto’s Winter Garden Theatre on Friday night, and was joined by Kevin Hearn for the encore.

Page’s show on Friday night was his first full-band headlining show in Toronto since his 2008 split with Barenaked Ladies, and the set at the Winter Garden Theatre lasted for two hours.Hearn took to the keys for Page’s three-song encore which consisted of “Next Time“, “Powder Blue” and “Brian Wilson“. Tyler Stewart also Tweeted suggesting that he was in attendance.Page’s carefully-constructed set was peppered with BNL favourites, as well as new release “A Different Sort Of Solitude” and tracks from 2010’s Page One.The show received a write-up from the Toronto Sun (includes set list!) which offered a slightly critical slant on the performance, highlighting technical difficulties as a niggling distraction.Page’s Twitter legion, however, remained unequivocally positive about the show, complimenting Page’s voice and set list construction in equal measures.

Hearn’s late cameo in particular was met with much excitement:
