l really like the Barenaked Ladies but haven't gotten deep into their catalog. They put on a tremendous show that wrapped their hits with some still really good lesser known songs, a couple of tracks from their new album (which I am going to buy), really fun cover medleys and 2 guest performances. These guys really know how to put on a great show and have a great time doing it.

Barenaked Ladies Information

Alternative rock band The Barenaked Ladies consists of Jim Creeggan, Kevin Hearn, Steven Page, Ed Robertson, Tyler Stewart, and formerly Andy Creeggan. The band first began as a duo of Ed Robertson and Steven Page who went to school together since 4th grade, but didn't become friends until way after. They started hanging out after bumping into each other after leaving a Peter Gabriel show. The band expanded in 1990, which spurred the release of their debut album, Gordon, in 1992.

BNL is most widely known for popular singles "One Week," “If I Had a Million Dollars," "Pinch Me," and "Brian Wilson". With nearly 10 million records sold worldwide, the band has a solid, dedicated following who are treated, to improvised rap songs and humorous banter in between sets to make concerts more than about the music.

The beginning of BNL's career was pretty rocky. The band had earned the reputation of being booked for gigs and never showing up for rehearsals, then improvising their show sets. The band's first release of note came in 1991 called Yellow Tape, but after sending out their demos to record companies across Canada, were rejected from every single one. With no backing, album stores refused to sell the band’s album. They began selling their demo at various shows and found that the tapes sold really well. Their word-of-mouth popularity spread, causing people to begin asking for the demo at their local record stores. With more success, their demo tape got a commercial release, which was the first Indie release by any band in Canada to achieve platinum status.

1998’s Stunt marked the bands most successful release. The hottest single off the album, One Week, lived up to its title and spent one week at #1 on the Billboard Top 100. After the 2003 release of Everything to Everyone, the band fulfilled its contract with Reprise Records and chose not to resign. Later that next year, the band released, Barenaked for the Holidays, which was the band's first independent record since Yellow Tape. The band created their own label strictly for their usage, called Desperation Records.

In May 2006, BNL released Barenaked Ladies Are Me. And kicked off a contest for fans to remix songs and submit their finished products to the band online to be released on an EP for charity. Their last album came in 2010, All In Good Time. They continue to tour, as well as perform shows on cruise ships, including 2011’s Ships and Dip 4 on the Norwegian Dawn.

The two-time Grammy Award nominated band is gearing up for their Last Summer on Earth Tour. It will feature Blues Traveler, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, and Cracker. Kicking off July 6 at the Toledo, OH zoo, it will continue on throughout the U.S.
