5 Barenaked events to look forward to in 2017
BNL’s calendar for 2017 is already jam-packed; here’s what you can look forward to…
1. The Persuasions collaboration set for release
In late October, the band hit the studio with legendary a cappella group The Persuasions, collaborating on an LP featuring a number of BNL classics given a new twist.
The album will see the light of day in 2017 and fans are surely in for a treat if the live performances with the Brooklyn-based quintet are anything to go by. 🎶
2. The Spring US tour
The Ladies tour their way across the US throughout April and May, hitting 17 cities in the process.
The Barenaked Bus takes the band to spots such as New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Minnesota, South Dakota and Colorado. Tickets are available on the band’s official website!
Don’t walk, run, and get yours!
3. Canadian celebrations
2017 is a special year for Canada – it’s the 150th anniversary of Confederation, and special events and activities are being planned across the country.

At the forefont of Canada’s musical landscape for over 25 years, the Ladies have a number of engagements up their sleeve to mark the celebrations – including, as Tyler alluded to whilst co-hosting The Social this Fall, a homeland tour.
The hotly-anticipated studio follow-up to 2015’s Silverball is likely to be unveiled in 2017, with BNL pencilled in for studio time in late 2016/early 2017. BNL Rocks Red Rocks and the upcoming Persuasions collaborations have kept fans occupied in the meantime, but the prolific quartet are set to put out another studio LP in the coming months.
5. Side projects
As if that wasn’t enough new music, the ever-busy BNL chaps have their own stuff going on too; Kevin releases a new CD with his cousin Harland Williams; Rattlesnake Love drops 14th February 2017.
And, of course, don’t be surprised to see Ed pop up at a number of pinball events across North America. 😉 🕹
