Arkells kick off summer with a double-header weekend in Toronto


TORONTO, January 23, 2024 – Live Nation have just announced that ARKELLS return to Budweiser Stage for not one, but TWO back to back shows the first weekend of summer. You could call it a doubleheader Toronto weekend for Hamilton’s Arkells.

Who will be the support acts

As most know, Arkells always deliver and the 9X JUNO Award winners are here to please, and to provide a night of unstoppable hits and fan favourites. Grammy Award-nominated duo TEGAN AND SARA will be joining the bill as special guests on Night 1, with Alternative chart-toppers GROUPLOVE on Night 2.

“The last time we played Budweiser Stage was three summers ago,” says frontman Max Kerman. “It was a long-weekend affair, the first shows back after nobody had been allowed to attend a concert in quite some time. They were the most emotional and euphoric shows we’ve ever played, and a truly special return to the stage. But if you know one thing about Arkells, it’s that our goal is to always make each show better than the last. So we’ve hit the ground running, with an aim to build the biggest party of the summer.”

Tickets for the DOUBLEHEADER WEEKEND will go on-sale Friday January 26th @ 10 AM, with fan pre-sales commencing tomorrow, Wednesday January 24th at 10 AM. For early access pre-sale code, join Arkells newsletter at arkellsmusic.com. Codes will be shared tomorrow morning.

Get caught up with ARKELLS

Hailed by The Globe and Mail as “the right kind of band for this decade,” Arkells are widely considered one of the most passionate, exuberant and in-demand live bands working today. They are the 2023 recipients of the JUNO Award for “Group of the Year”– making them the most decorated act in the category, having won the honour more than any other group.  

As radio mainstays, sports-sync shoe-ins and curious students of culture, Arkells have remained ever present – building awareness and personal community experiences around their live shows and albums at every turn.

The band’s most recognizable material aims to be spirited and anthemic, and there’s been no shortage of new music from Arkells over the last few years – having released their Blink Once and Blink Twice projects, featuring collaborations with the likes of Cold War Kids, K.Flay, Tegan and Sara, Aly & AJ and Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers – ahead of the introduction to their brand-new album, Laundry Pile.

New album Laundry Pile

Fearless with their creative ambition, Laundry Pile best exemplifies what makes Arkells different. It’s their most personal, pensive, and reserved collection of songs to date, guided by the spirit of the classic singer-songwriter tradition. It’s the kind of album that is one cohesive listening experience, revealing a rawness and beauty that will bring fans closer to the band than ever before.
