Iconic Canadian rock band ALEXISONFIRE has announced a limited engagement of performances this December. The five members will come together to perform four shows in Decemberat Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall – including three 19+ shows presented by Budweiser’s Discover What’s Brewing series. Having established a reputation worldwide for their killer live shows, AOF recently surprised fans lucky enough to get tickets to one of four sold-out Moneen concerts in Toronto when they hit the stage for a secret set at Lee’s Palace last month. The set precipitated a string of Australian Alexisonfire headline shows including Unify Gathering 2017. Alexisonfire enjoyed the Aussie tour and recent club play so much, they looked for a hole in their individual schedules to squeeze in some shows of their own. The band eschewed interest from numerous festivals, opting instead to capture the energy and excitement of playing for their rabid fanbase in a smaller, more intimate setting.
Although the five members have not made any plans to reunite in a traditional sense, they remain very close and open to opportunities and holes in their busy schedules that bring them together to perform. Says frontman George Pettit, “We hope we can show up and play in random cities from time to time.” Case in point, on Monday Alexisonfire surprised fans at the Air Canada Centre after headliners Billy Talent invited the band to perform a few AOF songs during their show.
