An iconic Canadian band will help Central Albertans ring in the holiday season this year.

On Monday, the Barenaked Ladies announced they would be bringing their Hometown Holidays Tour to the Memorial Centre on Dec. 6.

“We’re bringing Barenaked Holiday Cheer to YOUR Hometown!,” says BNL’s Ed Robertson. “It’s been a couple of long, cold, lonely winters, so let’s have some fun!”

BNL will perform holiday fan favourites from the Barenaked for the Holidays album, as well as a few other chestnuts and surprises. According to a release, the performances offer fans a rare opportunity to celebrate the season with Canada’s favourite foursome amongst family and friends, many coming together for the first time in three years.

VIP ticket packages went on sale Tuesday and general admission tickets will go on sale Sept. 29.

BNL played in Red Deer in 2015, with special guest Alan Doyle as part of their Silverball Tour and also in 2017 during their Canada 1-Five-O Tour.
