Hamilton’s The Arkells announce first live concert date in 16 months

In another hopeful sign that we’re slowly returning to ‘normal’ Hamilton’s The Arkells have announced their first live concert date in 16 months.

The band is set to hit the stage in Toronto at Budweiser Stage August 13 and 14 in what is being dubbed ‘The Arkells Long Weekend.’

Tickets for the two outdoor shows go on sale this Friday (July 16) at 10 a.m. Pre-sale starts Wednesday (July 14).

The news comes shortly after the band’s announcement that their new album, Blink Once, will be released this Fall.

Initially, the 11-track album was set to be released Sept. 30, but the band moved the release date up to Sept. 22 after presales of the vinyl version exceeded expectations.

The album’s tracks include ‘You Can Get It’ and ‘All Roads’ which the band put out earlier this year, and the single ’Years in the Making,’ which was released in February 2020.

While Hamiltonians might be somewhat disappointed that the band’s first show in 16 months is outside of their hometown, rest assured, The Arkells will return to Tim Hortons Field next summer for The Rally on June 25, 2022, the only other live event the band is scheduled to appear at currently.
