The multi-platinum band recently announced a pay-per-view live stream show featuring footage from BNL’s 2015 Red Rocks performance to take place on Saturday, September 12 at 7pm Eastern time.

Recorded at the fabled Morrison, CO amphitheater in June 2015 during the Ladies’ Last Summer on Earth tour, the footage captures the rock icons’ incredible live energy, camaraderie, and musicianship that stand as a testament to the band’s remarkable longevity in an ever-changing musical landscape. The live stream features a new exclusive interview where the band discuss their most fun and memorable stories from performing at Red Rocks over the years, as well as commentary from Ed and Tyler throughout the show. The show’s opening will be shown on the band’s Facebook and YouTube. Tickets can be purchased now HERE.

BNL have been staying busy during quarantine with weekly Facebook Livestreams along with their #SelfieCamJams, performing deep cuts and fan favorites from their homes, even bringing in surprise guests. In April, they did a family-fun “Snacktime” #SelfieCamJam for kids of all ages. Many familiar faces made a special appearance to share their favorite snack, like Sarah McLachlan, Tom Greene, KT Tunstall, The Count, and Darius Rucker of Hootie and the Blowfish, who Barenaked Ladies toured with in 2019. The band also teamed up with Michael Bublé and Sofia Reyes for a timely single “Gotta Be Patient,” with all proceeds to be donated to charity.

BNL’s recent TikTok video in which Ed takes you ‘Behind The Song’ on how he wrote the Big Bang Theory theme song has been viewed over 2.4 million times. Watch it HERE.

The Toronto-based “cult fave” (Paste Magazine—who have now sold over 15 million albums worldwide and earned multiple JUNO Awards and Grammy nominations— can’t wait to get back on the road when it is safe to do so again.

Other past acts include Cracker, Big Head Todd & the Monsters, Blues Traveler, Guster, Ben Folds Five, Violent Femmes, Colin Hay, OMD, Howard Jones, Better Than Ezra, and KT Tunstall.
