No one has sent us videos from the show yet! Send us your video so we can add it to the site.
The Sloan concert was tremendous. No surprise there. What made the night extra special for me was members (chris, Jay, patriack I'm looking at you) of the band taking time out to pose for pictures with me and other fans after the show (even if I was sort of drunk hehe). That was awesome. Can't say enough good things about Sloan...I've seen them live like 10 times and its always a blast. I loved hearing Penpals!
Sloan put together a tight knit show that would satisfy any of their true fans. The songs from their new album are a welcome addition to their already delicious collection of tunes. It's nice to grow up along side a band. I appreciate them even more as a part of my own personal music history collection and, from the sounds of things, will continue to do so.
Just want to say the show was amazing! I hope Winnipeg remains a standout on your Canadian tours. Great setlist and an half decent crowd. Probably about 350-400 people. Great considering a local radio station that doesn't even play Sloan was presenting the show :(
Here's a video that I shot:
Hot103 added "Who Taught You to Live Lke That" into heavy rotation on release, where it continues to spin a billion times a day.
Power 97 hasn't touched the single.
Terrific show! The new material is great! The new record is a giant pop masterpiece. Guys, your instincts are correct to play as much of it as you can get away with. I agree with the previous poster that it's really makes the fans feel special when the band comes out for a meet and greet. Jay, thanks for the conversation and for posing with me for a pic. Patrick, it was great to meet you - sorry that I frightened you by hoping that Ill Placed Trust pulls a "Soul Asylum" and rockets to the top. If you'd rather, I'll wish you a "Nick Lowe" and you can become a millionaire off of royalties when someone lame covers one of your songs.
Great Show! I was lucky enough to purchase the only vinyl "4 Nights at the Palais Royal" at the merch table, going to spin it down at the bar tonight. The Yoko Casionos were a great opener as well, those high-spirited kids.
A much more intimate setting than the last show with the Foo Fighters. Far more apropos.
Come back real soon! We love you guys (in a platonic, let's-be-friends kind of way)!
It's been a while for me and (to be honest) I have kinda given up. But wow! is Sloan ever back. Lve the new record. The show was killer. A bit long but who cares it's Sloan!. The guys were in top playing form and carrying a very competent sideman (Gary MacDonald) playing keys (gary plays great but should probably not wander from his stage position). Can't name another band who keeps putting out great records after fifteen years. Long live Sloan. Thanks boys.
Your attempt at 'American Woman' was absolutely dreadful, but it was completely charming that you tried to tribute our fair city!!! Very cute, and I laughed! Everything else was brilliant!! I've seen you fellas & met some or all of you several times, and it's still exciting to see you every single time! Please come back soon!
Once again, another fantastic Sloan concert!
Sloan just keeps getting better and better. It's refreshing to hear the great new songs alongside the classics! Kudos to Sloan's crew for making it all work so seamlessly. The guys had yet another meet and greet with fans after the show, and autographed my daughter's pictures from July's Superspike Festival concert. This band rocks! This band rewards their fans time and time again. Thanks for a rockin'-good-time!
Here is a link to a video I shot from front row center in Winnipeg...
WOW! Another great Sloan show! I love all the new songs, and they sound even better live! Thank you for coming out after the show to meet and mingle with your fans...You guys are the best! Thanks for signing the pics that we took of you with our little girl in July, it meant so much to her...And thank you for posing for pics this time too...You really know how to make your fans feel special! I love you all and can't wait to see you again!
Love and Hugs,
