Canadian music lovers can officially expect to get ready for a busy month, as March is set to be a fast-paced four weeks of concerts and pumping beats across the country. As we prepare to say goodbye to the frigid temperatures with the hopes of milder weather, some of the biggest names in the industry are coming out of winter hibernation to rock the stage. Whether a fan of dance pop, indie or RB, there is something to lift the spirits of every Canadian as we embark on sunnier days ahead. Here is Real Style’s roundup of Canadian concert stops for the month ahead.
Canadian singer and songwriter, Lights, is making her way through Canadian soil for the We Were Here Tour, which starts with her first stop in Toronto on March 1st and 2nd at the Danforth Music Hall. She is scheduled to make appearances in Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, North Bay, Ottawa, Kitchener and London, throughout March and the first week of April. One of her biggest tours to date, We Were Here is running in support of her fourth studio album Skin Fire, featuring the hot single “Giants” that continues to climb up the charts. Taking her career to new heights, Skin Fire combines Lights’ love for music and comics into a one-of-a-kind multimedia experience.
Global music sensation Lorde is set to make her Canadian Melodrama World Tour debut in Vancouver on March 8th at the Rogers Arena and in Toronto on March 29th at the Air Canada Centre. Celebrating her second studio album, Melodrama is said to explore the theme of solitude with a twist of electro and dance pop. The two time Grammy award winner is most known for the release of her album lead single “Green Light.”
On March 13th and 14th, Super Bowl performer, J.T., is kicking off his Man of the Woods Tour at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Commemorating his fifth studio album, the tour is an expression of Timberlake’s most exploratory, genre-defiant music in more than a decade. While still dedicated to the “FutureSex/LoveSound” beats that made him a household name, the multi Grammy award winner shares elements of country, blues and folk in his latest album. Timberlake’s “Filthy” also offers a taste of his out of the ordinary futuristic, electro-funk sound.
P.S. March isn’t your only chance to catch Timberlake live in action. He is scheduled to play in Montreal in April, as well as in Kanata, Quebec, Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto for the third time towards the end of 2018.
Demi Lovato DJ Khaled
Duo Demi Lovato and DJ Khaled are slated to hit the stage in Montreal on March 17th at Centre Bell Centre and in Toronto on March 19th at the Air Canada Centre. The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer is joined by hip hop personality and catch phrase executioner, Khaled, for a motivational and go-getter performance. Promoting her latest album, “Tell Me You Love Me”, the tour is said to showcase Lovato’s newly found mature yet daring voice with hints of Khaled’s swagger.
American singer P!NK is back after a five year hiatus in music! Kicking off her Beautiful Trauma World Tour this month, P!NK is set to perform back-to-back shows in Toronto on March 20th and 21st at the Air Canada Centre, followed by a stop in Montreal on March 23rd at Centre Bell Centre. Don’t worry Vancouver, you’ll get a chance to hear P!NK’s raw and tender vocals this May. As the 2017 winner of the highly acclaimed Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, P!NK’s “What About Us” is the soulful tune that marks her seventh studio album musical comeback.
