Published Oct 17, 2014Michael Bernard Fitzgerald is hitting the road in Canada this fall, and it's going to be more than just an average tour for the Calgary songwriter. In addition to a heap of regular dates, there are a few instalments of a show he's calling "#WAYTOOBIG #WAYTOOLOUD."
The outing kicks off in Kelowna on October 24. After that, MBF will head east across the Prairies and all the way out to the Maritimes. He will then make his way back for some more shows in Canada. There are 19 dates in total.
Most of these are standard gigs, but four of them — Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg — will showcase the hashtag-friendly concept "#WAYTOOBIG #WAYTOOLOUD." According to a press release, this will be "a collaborative spectacle of sights and sounds, partnering MBF with a group of touring and local artists who will have only recently met, incorporating over 500 performers on stage."
This is a very ambitious-sounding concept, and we can't even begin to imagine how it's going to work. See the tour schedule below, and scroll past that to watch a orchestral-style video trailer for "#WAYTOOBIG #WAYTOOLOUD."
MBF released his album Yes (plus a connected EP) back in 2012.
