Kingston’s Glorious Sons return home to kick off tour

The lights are low and the house music high. The crowd anticipates the silence, signifying the arrival of the band on stage.

But that night it wasn’t just any band, it was The Glorious Sons, and they were home and had ‘Unfinished Business.’

The Glorious Sons kicked off the tour — which had previously been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic — on Tuesday, April 12, 2022, during a secret show for ticket holders at Stages Night Club, but officially hit the big stage in Montreal on Wednesday, Apr. 13, then returned to their hometown of Kingston to perform at the Leon’s Centre on Friday, Apr. 15, one of the biggest large-scale concert in the Limestone City since the dawn of the pandemic.

They performed a full two-hour set and began their encores with a soulful acoustic solo by Brett of Old Church Town. Despite one unfortunate violent incident at the show, the crowd participated by shining their lights, and goosebumps were felt by everyone as a sense of camaraderie wrapped itself around the audience, all united in the concert experience, and by the love of all things Glorious Sons. And as concert-goers flocked to the Leon’s Centre in the heart of downtown Kingston, and spilled into the restaurants and bars both before and after the show, it was a night to remember for many Kingstonians — those in the band, and those in the audience.

The band now continue their cross Canada tour with Juno award winner JJ Wilde. Find out more about the band, the tour, and getting tickets on the Glorious Sons website.
