Alexisonfire Expand Farewell Tour with Stops in Vancouver and Hamilton
The freshly unveiled shows include Vancouver's Pacific Coliseum on December 17 and Hamilton's Copps Coliseum on December 30. In addition, the band's shows in Sao Paulo and Calgary have been moved to slightly larger venues.
In a press release, guitarist Wade MacNeil reveals that the band intentionally chose to close out their tour in Hamilton.
"For our last show ever, we thought it would be nice to bring it closer to where we grew up," he said. "Hamilton is where George calls home, it's where I was born, and it's where we have played countless, amazing shows over the years. This show will be a celebration of the last 10 years of our music and growing up together. I can't think of a better way to end the tour."
