Glorious times ahead with the Sons in Victortia

Kingston’s The Glorious Sons in town next March as part of A War on Everything North American tour

The Glorious Sons, perhaps Kingston, Ont.’s best-known band not named the Tragically Hip, bring The War on Everything North American tour to Victoria in 2020.

For this guitar-oriented band, whose song S.O.S. (Sawed Off Shotgun) kept them at No. 1 on the Active Rock list in Canada – they reached No. 4 in the U.S. – the Friday, March 6 concert at the Royal Theatre is near the end of a tour that gets underway in Pennsylvania on Jan. 16 and winds up in Winnipeg.

Billboard lauds the band’s 2019 album’s “turbulent guitar licks,” saying, “maybe the self-aware band thinks [rock] is dying, but they might just be resurrecting it.” And Apple Music’s Stuart Berman said, “A War on Everything heightens the tension between entertainment and inner torment at the heart of The Glorious Sons’ sound.”

Opening up the show in Victoria will be Black Pistol Fire from Austin, Texas.

Tickets, starting at $54.25, can be purchased online at rmts.bc.ca or by phone at 250-386-6121. There’s also lower-level, front-area VIP tickets available for $194 that includes a double-vinyl A War on Everything live tour album (to be received post-tour), early access for merchandise shopping and a commemorative tour laminate.
