The Rolling Tundra Revue returns
by Tours

As it went unsaid during our original announcement we'd like to note that the upcoming Weakerthans tour is in fact a return of the Rolling Tundra Revue.

The cross Canada trek, which will be co-headlined by the Constantines, is resurrecting the brand the pairing previously applied to their 2005 tour. That tour saw the groups supporting their respective 2003 albums Reconstruction Site and Shine a Light. It also notably featured the Weakerthans performing as a six piece with members of the Fembots filling out their ranks. This writer fondly remembers a Toronto encore on the tour that saw members of the Weakerthans, Constantines, Fembots and Andre Ethier of the Deadly Snakes together on stage performing a life-affirming cover of the Traveling Wilburys "End Of The Line."

The Weakerthans are now supporting 2007's Reunion Tour while the Cons are working their recent record Kensington Heights. The Revue kicks off in March in St. Johns, Newfoundland and wraps in Whitehorse, Yukon in early May. You can view a poster for the tour over at Facebook.
