Get ready, Ontario: esteemed dance trio A Tribe Called Red have just expanded their summer tour schedule with a pile of shows in Canada's largest province.
While the group's schedule already included various festival dates, these newly announced shows are free appearances at First Nations reserves. A Tribe Called Red will also be providing youth-oriented workshops at the reserves.
These shows are presented with help from the Ontario Arts Council. A press release explains, "The goal is to present top quality shows directly on reserve, by partnering with communities and bringing a mobile stage and lighting on site." See A Tribe Called Red's full live schedule below.
These dates follow the spring release of Suplex. That EP's Hellnback-featuring track "The People's Champ" appears in a new iPhone commercial.
