Whitehorse will bring The Sweet Disaster Tour to the Danforth Music Hall on December 2 for a special bonus hometown Toronto performance. The band has sold out Massey Hall twice since they burst onto the scene a few short years ago, and so this upcoming gig presents the chance to cap off an incredibly busy year, from the release of Leave No Bridge Unburned to non-stop touring across Canada and the USA. Expect special guests to join the duo on stage. This announcement is a sneak peak at what’s to come with the 102.1 The Edge’s annual Jingle Bell Concert Series.


From the go-for-broke Bo-Diddley beat of “Downtown” to the epic intergalactic drama of “Sweet Disaster,” for which the tour has been named, Whitehorse is known for their riff-heavy harmonies and intense chemistry. Leave No Bridge Unburned has also provided their live show with some blistering additions to the set list, from the cutthroat “The One I Hurt” to the gentler barbs of “Fake Your Death (And I’ll Fake Mine).” With eight months of touring behind this album already in the books, the potency and impact of Whitehorse’s performances continues to amplify.

The Sweet Disaster Tour has included a run of shows in the USA with Noah Gundersen, stops across Canada’s East Coast, and a December jaunt from Buffalo to Nashville.

This fall, Whitehorse sets out on The Sweet Disaster Tour, a music marathon that starts where it all began, in Hamilton, ON. Fittingly, Six Shooter has released a new backyard version of “Sweet Disaster” that showcases the beautiful basics, the “Gram and Emmylou” magic at the heart of Whitehorse. See Luke and Melissa strip away the bells and whistles here.

September brings a fistful of shows with Corb Lund and a return to Nashville, TN for the 2015 AmericanaFest.

In October, The Sweet Disaster Tour will cross into the Maritimes for Whitehorse’s first theatre shows in the region since the album’s release in early 2015. On this run, the duo will make stops in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Whitehorse’s previous visit to Nova Scotia was for two sold out shows with the Halifax Symphony Orchestra in 2014.

Leave No Bridge Unburned received praise far and wide, from Rolling Stone, NPR, Toronto Star, Guitar Player and other major publications. On only their second full-length collection, Whitehorse exploded into a full-blown rock and roll outfit, made an impressive run in the Top 5 on the Alternative Radio Chart and played to their largest crowds yet, including a return to another packed Massey Hall in the spring.

Whitehorse also reunites with Canadian tour opener Noah Gundersen for shows in the American south and up the west coast. The itinerary includes a show at the historic Fonda Theatre in LA.
