The Rolling Stones have announced their only Canadian stop on 2019's No Filter Tour. The announcement comes following appearances of the band's signature tongue logo statues popping up around the city of Toronto. The show will be held on June 29, 2019 and has been titled, the Canada Rocks show, as it's on Canada Day weekend.

Opposed to Toronto's Scotiabank Arena, or the Skydome, the Stones have decide to take their show an hour and a half up north to Ore-Medonte, Ontario to the Burl's Creek event grounds. These grounds are home to the annual Boots & Hearts Country Music festival, as well as the now defunct Wayhome Music & Arts Festival. The area can hold up to 70,000 people, and tickets will be starting around $120 CAD.

Support acts are to be announced in the following weeks, but we've complied a list of three Canadians bands that would be a perfect addition to the lineup come June 29th.

  1. Crown Lands. If you haven't heard of Crown Lands yet, stop what you're doing and relocate to their Spotify page. Cody and Kevin, a duo from Oshawa, Ontario, have been killing the Spotify Rock playlists for a while now with singles like Mantra, Waterfall and Mountain. These dudes live performances are even better in person. Cody's wailing vocals paired with Kevin's badass guitar riffs, make for a sound that's like Led Zeppelin and Rush had a beautiful rock n' roll baby.

  2. The Glorious Sons. These Kingston, Ontario natives have been garnering much attention lately especially south of the border. They recently killed it at their headlining show at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena, and have been riding on the success of their sing-a-long stunner Sawed Off Shotgun. Plus, these guys already have experience opening for the Stones, so they could give Crown Lands some tips.

  3. Lastly, Canadian favourites, The Sheepdogs. The Sheepdogs are your quintessential Canadian rock band, that would make the perfect addition to this summer festival-not-really-a-festival lineup. They would bring the hits and some western representation as well!

Do you agree with our picks? Let us know!
