Dwayne Gretzky, Toronto’s live music phenomenon, is hitting the road this February and bringing their celebration of the greatest songs of all time south of the border. The band’s string of tour dates will include debut stops in Chicago, Pittsburgh, Detroit and Lancaster, as well as a much-anticipated return to Brooklyn and Buffalo.
This February’s tour follows the band’s most successful New Year’s Eve headlining show to date with a 3000-person celebration of 2018 in Toronto. With 100+ sold out shows to date and over 25,000 tickets sold in the Greater Toronto Area since January 2016, Dwayne Gretzky has become a household name in their hometown and word is quickly spreading to their neighbours in the south.
Concert goers can expect sets transcending both era and genre from this prodigiously talented collective of Toronto musicians - from Bowie to Beyoncé, Springsteen to Spears, The Supremes to The Strokes.
“The many members of Dwayne Gretzky dig into nostalgia as collectivism, uniting fans too young to have heard Manfred Mann and Fleetwood Mac live in their heyday by playing their hits with unironic energy and fidelity” - Richard Trapunski, NOW Magazine
