Big turnout for Barenaked Ladies in Liverpool


Liverpool, NS - The Barenaked Ladies opened for themselves at Queens Place Emera Centre in Liverpool Oct. 20.

The opening set was a smaller version of what followed.

The band, which is based out of Toronto, played some of their hits, such as If I had a Million Dollars and Enid. They also performed songs from their new album, Fake Nudes.

In the second set, a white curtain dropped, exposing a large drum kit with the Barenaked Ladies logo on the bass drum. There was also an upright bass and piano. Near the beginning of the second act, Ed Robertson, Tyler Stewart, Kevin Hearn and Jim Creegan played tribute to Gord Downie, from the Tragically Hip. Downie died of glioblastoma multiforme, a form of brain cancer, on Oct. 17.

This was the Barenaked Ladies’ first time on the South Shore. The band is on a national tour scheduled to wrap up Nov. 15.
