Former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach and rock duo The Standstills are bringing their Canadian tour to the Ale House in Kingston on Friday night.
UPDATE: Sebastian Bach posted a photo and memory of having visited Kingston as a kid…
Hey Kingston Ontario Canada. I used to come here when I was a very small child to help my dad hang up his art shows. I never ever knew how stunningly stupefyingly gorgeous your city was until today! Sorry but I was just a wee little nard!!! Man my hotel room is awesome! SEE YA TONIGHT KINGSTON!!!! #BachonTour #HomeAwayFromHome @thestandstills
But, as Sebastian posted to social media the following day, the concert was cancelled due to a power outage so he will schedule another one in the future:
“Last night in Kingston Ontario Canada the power went out on the Block where we were supposed to play. We tried to get it turned back on but we’re not able to. This show has been rescheduled and we will be back. We are extremely bummed out That this happened. But this was completely out of our control. Sorry to all the fans who came to the show but we’re gonna reschedule and be back!”
The Standstills, Canadian Radio Music’s “Best New Rock Group”, released their single Wild (video below), co-written with Neil Sanderson of Three Days Grace, earlier this year in advance of their upcoming full-length album BADLANDS.
This follows the success of the band’s 2015 EP, From the Devil’s Couch, featuring, Orleans – #4 on BDS active rock charts in Canada – and Rise of the Fall, another top 10 hit in Canada.
The album received over 1.4 million streams globally and the band performed extensively across Canada including their first arena tour supporting Our Lady Peace and I Mother Earth.
“It was an amazing experience to perform alongside two legendary Canadian bands on home turf,” said Rene Couture. “We learned a lot on that tour and we are really grateful to all the fans who interacted with us and connected to our music.”
Sebastian Bach is the Peterborough, Ontario-raised heavy metal singer who fronted Skid Row from 1987 to 1996.
The band’s first two albums Skid Row (1989) and Slave to the Grind (1991) went multi-platinum with the latter reaching #1 one on the Billboard 200.
