The ARKELLS return to Hamilton, ON for an official kick-off to the summer LIVE at Tim Hortons Field. The alt-rock favourites have dominated the charts and toured the globe and are thrilled to return to their hometown for one special night. From the 905 to the 416 – this will be their only show in the Golden Horseshoe this summer and it is not to be missed.

Hot on the heels of a Super Bowl NBC broadcast synch for “Knocking At The Door” and three 2018 JUNO nominations, including “Single of the Year,” ARKELLS announced THE RALLY on Friday February 9 with a little help from Canada’s 2018 Olympic Flag-bearers, Olympic figure skating champions, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.

“After the thrill of last summer’s show at Budweiser Stage in Toronto, we had to figure out a way to make our 2018 summer concert even better. So the first thing we thought was: let’s move this party to Hamilton and give folks a taste of what our town has to offer. We had a wish-list of bands to play with, and Cold War Kids were at the top of the heap. Then we were thinking ‘who can deliver on a big stage?’ and our friend Bishop Briggs immediately came to mind: she’s got a voice that can fill any stadium (and has had practice – opening for Coldplay last year). And we wanted to make sure our favourite new local band was on the night: Ellevator. They’re the next best thing to come out of Hamilton. See you at THE RALLY.” – ARKELLS
