I’ve never had the absolute pleasure of seeing City and Colour live in concert – until now.
I’m a huge Dallas Green fan. Love love love this man’s voice – it speaks to my soul, as cheesy as that sounds.
I’m a huge Alexisonfire fan as well, of which Dallas was a member before they broke up (likely due to City and Colour’s success and his lack of time to do both)… I was shocked and saddened by the news really. I know, get a life right?
City and Colour brought their live show to Massey Hall for two sold out shows, on February 10 and 11, 2012. Both shows sold out pretty quickly – I was lucky to purchase even one ticket but I was determined to go, even alone.
Then the luckiest thing happened; I got an email from the venue telling me that they were upgrading my ticket! I ended up in third row centre, and the aisle seat.
Could I have been any happier?!? Dallas stood before me and sang his lovely heart out with passion and soul. Throughout the evening, I had to close my eyes for a few seconds to enjoy the sound of his beautiful voice and the amazing acoustics of Massey Hall.
Dallas Green’s voice and music is simply intoxicating.
It was truly a dream.
