Blue Rodeo is officially announcing the Friday, October 16, 2015 release of their new album Live At Massey Hall. The 14-track collection was culled recorded during the band’s sold-out two-night stand at Toronto’s venerable concert hall during their 2014 In Our Nature Tour across Canada. Live At Massey Hall will be available digitally as well as on CD and Double LP heavyweight vinyl.
Fans who pre-order Live At Massey Hall via iTunes or the band’s Official Online Store will get “Rose Colored Glasses” as the first of four instant-grat tracks. Over the course of the past month, Blue Rodeo fans have been voting for the remaining three remaining instant-grat songs. Those selections will be revealed each Friday leading up to the October 16 release date. Blue Rodeo is also offering a pre-release gift to fans with a free download of the Live Massey At Hall non-album track “Mattawa” available at www.bluerodeo.com.
In 2014 Blue Rodeo hit the road and showcased their newly expanded 7-piece line up with a lengthy cross-Canada tour that featured two sets and almost three hours of music. Fans and critics were astounded by the muscle and might the band continues to possess 26 years after the release of their debut, Outskirts in 1989. The group played to full houses and standing ovations over 40 dates. On February 19 and 20, 2014, the band came home to play at Toronto’s historic Massey Hall. Live At Massey Hall, recorded on February 20, captures the magic of that tour.
In addition to the release of Live At Massey Hall, Blue Rodeo will also make available vinyl releases of the classic albums Casino (released October 30), Lost Together (released November 13) and Five Days In July (released November 27). This is the first time Five Days In July has ever been available on vinyl and the first wide-release of Lost Together on vinyl. Both will be issued as double LP sets pressed on heavyweight vinyl. Casino will be a single disc pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Additionally, fans can head exclusively to the band’s Official Online Store to pre-order a limited edition vinyl carrying case with all four vinyl albums (Live At Massey Hall, Casino, Lost Together and Five Days in July) included. Individual vinyl titles are available to pre-order now from amazon.ca and the band’s Official Online Store.
