Glass Tiger / Monowhales (Opening Artist)
Thu August 17, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pmFREE
Peterborough Musicfest is thrilled to announce that alt rock sensation Monowhales will open for iconic Canadian rock band Glass Tiger on Wednesday, August 9 at Del Crary Park.
Formed in 2017, Monowhales has earned its place as one of the most exciting bands in Canada, with multiple top 10 singles, millions of streams and countless shows to its credit. The recipient of a 2022 Juno Award for Breakthrough Group of the Year, the Sally Shaar-led trio has lived up to expectations and then some.
Having just completed a national tour in support of Mother Mother, Monowhales is enjoying continued success with its latest single CTRL^^^ from its February 2002 album Tunnel Vision.
Back in 2019, Monowhales’ breakout single RWLYD (Really Wanna Let You Down) made history, charting at number 2 on the Mediabase Canada Alternative Rock Chart – the only independent, self-managed band to attain that ranking.
During the pandemic, Monowhales didn’t miss a beat, releasing the top 10 singles All Or Nothing and Out With The Old prior to the March 2021 release of its debut album Daytona Beach.
Led by the incomparable Alan Frew, Glass Tiger – formed in 1981 and initially known as Tokyo Rose – exploded out of the gate with its debut album Thin Red Line in 1986 and never looked back.
Besides the title track, that Juno-Award winning album offered the hit singles Someday and the platinum selling plea Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone) that brought the band a 1987 Grammy Award nomination as Best New Band.
Frew et al didn’t rest on their laurels over the following years, the hit singles I Will Be There, I’m Still Searching, Diamond Sun, My Song, Animal Heart, Rhythm Of Your Love and My Town (with Rod Stewart) drawing a global fan base that is still very much in evidence today.
In total, five Juno Awards came the band’s way on the strength of a remarkable 12 nominations.
More recently, Glass Tiger released its fifth studio album, 33, in May 2019 and, in the fall of 2020, served up a Christmas-themed collection titled A Song For A Winter Night. Having last appeared at Peterborough Musicfest in 2008, Glass Tiger returns to Del Crary Park with Frew joined by several original band mates.
