CITY AND COLOUR today announces that two more shows have been added to his first major U.S. tour. Philadelphia sold out first, with a second night added for December 8, now a second night has been added in San Francisco on November 5 and a second night in Detroit on November 25.
City and Colour’s U.S. tour is set to begin November 3, 2011 in Los Angeles, California and end on December 10th in Washington, DC at the venerable 9:30 Club. City and Colour will be touring in support of his third full-length album, Little Hell, which was released on June 7 (Vagrant/Dine Alone) and debuted at #27on the Billboard Top 200 chart and #7 on the Top Independent Albums chart – the highest US debut ever for Canadian singer/songwriter Dallas Green.
Pre-sales for the new dates begin tomorrow, Wednesday, September 7 at 10am local time in each city and run until Thursday, September 8 while pre-sale quantities last. Tickets go on sale to the general public on September 9 and fans will be able to purchase tickets during pre-sale straight from cityandcolour.ca/tour.
Little Hell – named after the album’s title track, a song that explores the little heavens and little hells that comprise a relationship – is the highly anticipated follow-up to 2008’s Bring Me Your Love, which was certified platinum in Green’s native Canada, where Little Hell debuted at #1 and has already received gold certification.
City and Colour has the unique distinction of having sold out every single headlining show the band has ever performed in the U.S. and this tour will be the first time fans in several cities will have the chance to hear Green’s one-in-a-million voice live.
Today NPR’s World Café will air a special performance from City and Colour. The first single from Little Hell, “Fragile Bird” is currently climbing the radio charts and the video is in rotation at MTVU and Fuse.
Green – who has won Juno’s (Canadian Grammy’s) for ALTERNATIVE ALBUM OF THE YEAR (2007), SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR (2009) – has enjoyed incredible success around the globe – his City and Colour show at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall this past April sold out in mere hours.
City and Colour has spent most of 2011 performing at festivals including SXSW, Coachella, Sasquatch, Glastonbury Festival, Lollapalooza, and will be making appearances at Austin City Limits and the Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans before the US tour begins.

“Green’s stark meditations…are strangely uplifting expressions of compassion.” – SPIN
“Little Hell is certainly City and Colour’s most accomplished work to date. Green once again explores folk territory … while other songs evoke blues and country. Yet for all this diversity, Hell remains a coherent and engaging record…”
