Bahamas: Still Sad Tour
with special guest Ariel Posen
BAHAMAS ANNOUNCES HIS FIRST CANADIAN CONCERT DATE IN SUPPORT OF JUNO-WINNING ALBUM SAD HUNK
Fresh off his fifth career JUNO Award win this past weekend (Adult Alternative Album of the Year), Bahamas (Afie Jurvanen) returns to the stage at Toronto’s Meridian Hall on December 1, 2021, supporting his acclaimed fifth full-length album, Sad Hunk.
“I’m really excited to get back in front of live audiences,” says Jurvanen, “I always wondered what it would be like to have a break from touring, now I can tell you: I don’t like it.”
A globally successful touring artist, over the past year, Bahamas has reinvented ways he collaborates live with the popular YouTube series Live To Tape. A series that has seen him perform remotely from studios in his hometown Halifax, connected to studios worldwide with backing bands consisting of Jason Isbell’s 400 Unit, Dawes, and rhythm sections for Tom Petty, Roger Waters, Adele, Beck, REM, and more. The final episode in the series premieres on June 18 at 8 PM EST, featuring Steve Ferrone and Nathan East (Eric Clapton’s MTV Unplugged Rhythm Section), and Madison Cunningham.
The Globe and Mail have called Bahamas an "unassuming sensation” of the Canadian music scene, averaging over 3.5 million regular monthly listens on Spotify alone, with more than half a billion streams to date. Sad Hunk is on pace to be his fifth consecutive album to receive more than 100 million streams.
Nominated for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical at the 2019 Grammy Awards, his previous album Earthtones won Adult Alternative Album Of The Year and Video of the Year ("Depression," directed by Ali Eisner) at the 2019 JUNO Awards. A seven-time JUNO nominee, Jurvanen also received Adult Alternative accolade for Bahamas Is Afie in 2015, when he was also named Songwriter Of The Year.
