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.

Had no idea I wasn’t allowed to record any of the live performance until I was stopped, but managed to get a little bit of one of my favourite songs from the new album, Little Hell, called “Weightless”:
