DEADWOOD, S.D. (11/14/16) – “Gotta see the show, ’cause then you’ll know,” sings Ed Robertson on Barenaked Ladies’ chart-topping hit, “One Week,” a song featured on the band’s new live album ‘BNL Rocks Red Rocks,’ recorded at the fabled Morrison, CO, Amphitheater on June 10, 2015 during the band’s Last Summer On Earth tour. The band will bring that energy to the Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center for a performance on Friday, May 12th.
That’s as good a description as any about seeing these rock icons in concert, an experience filled with the kind of energy, precision, finesse and outright celebration among its fans that is a tribute to Barenaked Ladies’ remarkable longevity. The band is still together after nearly three decades, producing 14 studio albums which have collectively sold more than 14 million copies, won eight Juno Awards, earned multiple Grammy nominations, a U.S. chart-topping single (“One Week”) and the theme song to one of TV’s most popular shows, “The Big Bang Theory.”
By combining humor with an eclectic mix of folk and pop/rock, the Barenaked Ladies enjoyed considerable popularity in their native Canada before rising to international status with 1998’s “One Week.” Vocalists Ed Robertson and Steve Page launched the band in the late ’80s as an acoustic act, traveling to different college campuses and playing warm-up gigs for comedy troupes.
Meanwhile, record labels had begun approaching the band with attractive offers, and BNL soon signed with Sire/Reprise and issued their full-length debut, “Gordon”, in 1992. Featuring “Be My Yoko One,” “If I Had a $1,000,000,” and “Brian Wilson,” the album moved over one million and units and initiated BNL’s reign as Canadian pop kings.
“Stunt,” the group’s fourth studio effort, was issued in July 1998 and transformed the Barenaked Ladies into stars in both the U.S. and U.K. Buoyed by the chart-topping single “One Week,” the album debuted at number three on the Billboard charts and went on to sell over four million copies
“I don’t think there’s a secret,” Robertson explained to People magazine last year when asked how BNL managed to not just survive, but thrive, continuing to sell out venues wherever they go. “It’s work. You’ve got to respect each other, you got to give each other space, but you also have to support each other… This band learned early on to communicate, right from the beginning we didn’t want to burn out. We wanted to keep making music.”
“The Barenaked Ladies have some of the most iconic songs of the late 90’s and 2000’s so we’re thrilled to be hosting them next May,” said Susan Kightlinger, General Manager of Deadwood Mountain Grand. “Plus, their live shows are extremely fun, so the audience is in for a real treat.”
