Arkells home­town show sold out

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

Hamilton rock band Arkells have sold out their Feb. 10 “home­com­ing” show at the FirstOn­tario Cen­tre.

“We’ve al­ways felt a ton of sup­port from our home­town,” Arkells lead singer Max Ker­man said Tues­day in a state­ment an­nounc­ing the sell-out.

“Our neigh­bours are al­ways root­ing for us when we head out on tour, and to come home and sell out the arena is some­thing we could never have dreamed of. We can’t wait to show folks what we’ve been work­ing on while we’ve been on the road.”

The ca­pac­ity for the Arkells’ show at FirstOn­tario Cen­tre is about 10,000.

The mul­ti­ple-Juno win­ning band, which started up on the cam­pus of McMaster Univer­sity, is cur­rently tour­ing the United States to sup­port its fourth al­bum “Morn­ing Re­port” with English folk-punk artist Frank Turner and The Sleep­ing Souls.

Turner is also open­ing for the Arkells’ Cana­dian tour, which starts in Vancouver to­day.

The Arkells’ cur­rent sin­gle “My Heart’s Al­ways Yours” has earned more than 1.5 mil­lion streams on Spo­tify.
