After a long hiatus from performing live in front of fans old and new alike, Canadian Music Hall of Famer Steven Page will be back where he belongs, when The Steven Page Trio performs at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, November 13.
The former frontman and instantly recognizable voice of the Barenaked Ladies, Steven Page will be joined on stage by two long-time bandmates and friends, both accomplished Canadian musicians in their own right. Craig Northey (Odds) brings his vocals, guitar and banter to the band, as does cellist, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Kevin Fox.
“The greatest thing is just to be able to play and make music with other human beings, and human beings that I love, all over again,” Page said.
His fifth solo album, DISCIPLINE: HEAL THYSELF, PT. II, was released in 2018, followed by tours of the UK, Ireland and the U.S. with bandmates Northey and Fox. In 2019, he toured Canada from coast to coast and an extensive tour of the U.S. Northwest, Southeast, Northeast and Texas. The Steven Page Trio – Live in Concert DVD was filmed during this tour and has been airing on American Public Television stations across the U.S.
Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit and live performances were largely shelved for more than a year and a half. Far from ever being idle, Page never stopped performing. It was only the venue that changed. Rather than sold-out theatres all over the world, he invited the whole world to come to his place (virtually).
“I started doing (livestreamed shows from home) at the end of April last year, and I haven’t stopped,” said Page. “I just did my 73rd show this last weekend over Zoom.”
Fans who are interested in experiencing The Steven Page Trio concert in a virtual setting can still do so by streaming the November 13 performance live through the BPAC’s livestream service. Patrons who want to experience the energy of the live concert environment can purchase tickets through the BPAC Box Office, secure in the knowledge that the BPAC’s health and safety protocols are in place to keep performers and patrons safe.
“The last thing I’d ever want to do is anything that is unsafe. The most important thing for me is that the audience is safe and comfortable. That’s how you can have a good time,” Page said.
As per Ontario guidelines, all patrons must show proof of COVID-19 double vaccination to be permitted entry into the facility and wear a mask.
Steven Page’s distinctive and powerful voice is among the most instantly recognizable in popular music. He is a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame with former bandmates, Barenaked Ladies, the award-winning band he co-founded. As one of the principal songwriters and lead singer, Steven spent twenty years with the group, touring the world and selling millions of albums. Since becoming a solo artist, Steven Page has carved out a diversified niche for himself that extends beyond recording and performing through an extensive array of projects in music, film, theatre and television. He has composed six Stratford Festival scores, has collaborated and toured North America with Toronto’s innovative Art of Time Ensemble and performs with his rock star pals as a member of the Trans-Canada Highwaymen. Steven journeyed across Canada and the U.S. as host of TV’s The Illegal Eater, became a Chopped Canada Champion and appeared as a judge on Iron Chef Canada in their 2019/20 season.
