Sony Music Entertainment Canada Inc. recording artist Ria Mae and Warner Music Canada’s Scott Helman have today announced via their social networks a joint national tour dubbed “Scott VS Ria.” The 17-date coast-to-coast tour begins October 15 at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto and winds up at Sugar in Victoria, BC. Full tour itinerary listed below.
“Scott better be bringing his ‘A’ game,” demands Ria in making the announcement. “I’m going to mean business on this tour.”
“Fans should be prepared for a Battle Royale every night,” Scott asserts in response.
Ria and Scott first met at the Calgary Juno Awards in 2016 where both celebrated first time nominations for their debut releases – Ria for her breakthrough hit “Clothes Off,” and Scott for the ubiquitous “Bungalow.” Ria is currently enjoying radio success with her latest sing “Bend” which spent four weeks on CBC’s Radio 2 Top 20 Chart and is currently the #1 most added track all formats at Canadian Radio. Scott Helman’s current single, “Kinda Complicated,” spent three weeks at #1 on the CBC Top 20 chart and reached #2 on the Hot AC chart at mainstream radio. The track, taken from his recently released major label debut, Hôtel de Ville, is currently at # 18 on the CHR chart.
