CANADIAN ROCK ICONS DANKO JONES ANNOUNCE 25TH ANNIVERSARY LIVESTREAM SHOWS AT HAMILTON’S BRIDGEWORKS
Danko Jones exists to rock. It’s his innate, guttural mode of expression. His daily ritual. His life’s work. Now, after 25 years, 10 albums, world tours with the rock gods like Ozzy Osbourne, Guns ‘n’ Roses and Motörhead, the band announces their return to the stage with two shows at Hamilton, Ontario’s Bridgeworks.
Acclaimed hard rock trio Danko Jones has earned their place as Canadian music legends. The group has gone gold and platinum internationally, had seven singles crack the US Active Rock Top 40 and had their single “Gonna Be A Fight Tonight” used as the WWE official theme song for the 2015 Royal Rumble.
Over the past 25 years, the band has made a name for themselves as a must-see live band and after a year with no shows, they’re itching to get back out there. Danko Jones, the band’s frontman and namesake comments, “2021 is the 25th anniversary of our band. 25 years of non-stop performing, touring and recording. To celebrate our silver jubilee, we are holding our first ever livestreams and we may even be premiering some new material… This has been the longest break in the history of our band so without a doubt, these livestreams will be like letting wild animals out of cages. Are you ready? We’re goddamn ready.”
Presented by Supercrawl and Exclaim! Magazine and produced in association with Metal Sucks, 94.9 The Rock Toronto, Y108 Hamilton, Rebel 101.7 Ottawa, CJAY 92 Calgary, 100.3 The Bear Edmonton and CFOX-FM Vancouver, the livestream shows will take place on Friday March 12, 2021 at 8:00PM EST // 5:00PM PST in North America, and on Saturday March 13th at 8:00PM CET in Europe, but you will be able to tune in to both shows from anywhere in the world. Tickets and information for North America can be found at THIS location and for Europe HERE!
Western Canadian songwriter Colter Wall is a weathered baritone that spins narratives on the stage. He sings traditionals known to most, historic reverie, and poignant originals, raising both goosebumps and beers throughout the evening. It’s a nostalgic atmosphere and a simple yet colourful experience.
On his third album, Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs, Wall’s 10-track ode to the themes and labours of western life, picks up where his last album left off, with a reverence for his “working cowboy kin.”
Recorded in the heart of Texas at Yellow Dog Studios, Wall’s new album features his own band hot off of a North American tour. Along the Blanco River bank, outside the small town of Wimberley, Colter and his boys recorded a collection of cowboy songs, old and new.
On the album is title track “Western Swing & Waltzes,” first heard on his Austin City Limits performance. Also included among the tracks is the Stan Jones’ classic “Cowpoke,” a cover with increasing popularity among fans. Featured on most tracks are stronghold sidemen like Patrick Lyons, a multi-instrumentalist who textures grooves with his standard pedal steel guitar, dobro, mandolin, and a few surprises. Prominent harmonica player Jake Groves graces many songs with haunting, long trails and leads. While longtime bass player, heard on Wall’s previous two albums, Jason Simpson, alongside drummer Aaron Goodrich, wrangles the band’s rhythm. A handful of friends including Emily Gimble and Doug Moreland lend their talents in addition to Wall’s live band sound.
Unlike his previous albums, Wall produced Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs on his own. His band. His choices. It was a decision that diversified and put some giddy-up in the album’s sound.
About the album, Wall said “these songs are punchier than I am.” With an increasing presence in the Western Lifestyle world, Wall is, however, no slouch on the ranch. As any new cattleman would, Wall adds to his herd, as he does his musical background.

In June, Supercrawl festival organizers announced that they would be rescoping event programming in response to pandemic-related public health considerations. While the massive free event, which drew more than 250,000 fans in 2019, will not be taking place in 2020, organizers are producing this fall’s slate of special events in its place. Supercrawl Productions recently wrapped a sold-out weekend of open-air music as part of the six-show Skytop Live Concert Series, which ran September 24-27, 2020.
