The show started with “Astronaut” the first song from City and Colour’s latest offering A Pill for Loneliness. Dallas Green emerged centre stage, lit by a sole spotlight, the start of a poignant performance of a near two-hour performance. Green’s vocals were flawless during the performance, haunting and powerful.

Even though playing the Saddledome, the show had a deeply intimate feel. The audience was simply captivated and drawn in by Green’s smooth voice, along with a well-orchestrated light show that enhanced each song throughout the night.

Green concluded the night with “Sleeping Sickness”, a song from City and Colour’s second album, which featured the late Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip. A tip of the hat to Gord as the audience sang his parts, and a beautiful way to conclude a memorable performance from one of Canada’s masterful singer-songwriters.
