The BARENAKED LADIES have announced their full Canadian headlining tour in support of their latest release, GRINNING STREAK. The 10-date tour – with special guests Ladies Of The Canyon – kicks off at the Queen st Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver, British Columbia. Fan club only pre-sale tickets begin on Tuesday, October 1 th followed by public on sales Friday, October 4 . Celebrating their 25 anniversary, the tour announcement comes on the heels of the Ladies’ hugely successful ‘Last Summer on Earth Tour 2013’ with Ben Folds Five and Guster preceded by the release of their new album GRINNING STREAK, which debuted at #10 on the Billboard Top 200. The album marked their first top ten debut since 2003 and fourth top ten debut overall. The Huffington Post cited “… on the just-released "Grinning Streak," BNL sound as fresh and focused as they did in their late-'90s heyday. A collection of infectious melodies, clever lyrics and hopeful sentiments, "Grinning Streak" brims with the kind of playful energy that's always been the band's best asset.” The album’s breakout success showcases the new single “Odds Are,” which shot to No. 2 on the iTunes Rock Songs Chart. The band recently performed the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The BARENAKED LADIES’ featuring (guitarist/vocalist Ed Robertson, bassist/vocalist Jim Creeggan, keyboardist/vocalist Kevin Hearn and drummer/vocalist Tyler Stewart) have sold over 14 million albums

Known for such hits as “One Week,” “Pinch Me,” “Brian Wilson,” “If I Had $1,000,000” and many more, the band also penned the theme song for the hit CBS series, “The Big Bang Theory.” Earlier this year The Barenaked Ladies and astronaut Chris Hadfield collaborated for the first space-to-earth musical performance, debuting an original song "Is Somebody Singing." The Barenaked Ladies live shows have become legendary with their hilarious on-stage banter and impromptu raps/songs. Opening the shows on the Canadian tour will be Warner Music Canada recording artists Ladies Of The Canyon (bassist Anna Ruddick, lead guitarist/singer Maia Davies, guitarist/singer Jasmine Bleile and drummer Tara Martin). The Montreal-based group’s sophomore release, Diamond Heart was produced by Mark Howard (The th Tragically Hip, Lucinda Williams, Vic Chesnutt) and was released last Tuesday, September 24 . In their review of Diamond Heart, the Calgary Herald stated: "The album is a refreshing Pacific Coast country-rock breeze, blowing gorgeous harmonies and melodies across the beaches and valleys of the California landscape."
