Published Apr 26, 2011Next month, beloved Canuck rocker Sam Roberts will release the guest-heavy Collider via Zoë/Rounder. Once the disc drops on May 10, Roberts and his band have announced that they will head out on a North American tour.
The outing starts on May 16 and lasts until June. The bulk of the dates are in the U.S., but Roberts will be making his way back to his home country on May 28 for a performance at Vancouver's Malkin Bowl. On June 3 and 4, he will also play a two-night stand at Toronto's Massey Hall.
