CLEARWATER – Barenaked Ladies bring their fall tour to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Monday, Oct. 28, at 7:30 p.m.
Celebrating their 25th anniversary, Barenaked Ladies recently wrapped up one of this summer’s hottest events – their ‘Last Summer on Earth Tour 2013’ with Ben Folds Five and Guster preceded by the release of their new album Grinning Streak, which debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard Top 200.
The band's first Vanguard release marked their first top ten debut since 2003 and fourth top ten debut overall. The Huffington Post cited “…on the just-released Grinning Streak, BNL sound as fresh and focused as they did in their late-'90s heyday. A collection of infectious melodies, clever lyrics and hopeful sentiments, Grinning Streak brims with the kind of playful energy that's always been the band's best asset.”
The album’s breakout success showcases the new single Odds Are, which shot to No. 2 on the iTunes Rock Songs Chart. The band recently performed the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Barenaked Ladies features guitarist/vocalist Ed Robertson, bassist/vocalist Jim Creeggan, keyboardist/vocalist Kevin Hearn and drummer/vocalist Tyler Stewart. The band has sold more than 14 million albums worldwide and has won eight Juno awards and earned multiple Grammy nominations. Known for such hits as One Week, Pinch Me, Brian Wilson, If I Had $1,000,000 and many more, the band also penned the theme song for the hit CBS series, The Big Bang Theory and earlier this year The Barenaked Ladies and astronaut Chris Hadfield collaborated for the first space-to-earth musical performance, debuting an original song Is Somebody Singing.
The Barenaked Ladies live shows have become legendary with their hilarious on-stage banter and impromptu raps/songs.
