City and Colour Concert | July 14th 2016

Friday, July 15


My partner really enjoys the musician City and Colour (which consists of Dallas Green and his backing band), so when we found out late last year (in December) that they were coming to Halifax as part of their tour, he was super excited! I bought us two tickets for his birthday, back in March, for the concert which happened yesterday. It was a long wait, but it was well worth it!

We live rather far away from the city, so we decided to make a day out of the trip, head in early and explore some of Halifax!

(Sorry some of the photos are grainy, they were taken with my phone)
 This was taken in the afternoon, we had just arrived in the city and after walking through a mall, we decided to take a walk through some gardens! 

After spending the day walking along the boardwalk and up through the city, we stopped for a rooftop supper. I loved the rooftop patio! I forgot to take a photo of the food though (oops!)

Once we were able to get into the venue, this was the view we had of the stage. People did fill in a lot more, so it was a little more difficult to see later on in the show. Being short during concerts is probably one of the worst things about being short!

 This is Basia Bulat, who opened for City and Colour. She had amazing stage presence, and played some weird and awesome instruments. The one pictured is an autoharp, and she played this so well, it was absolutely amazing!

 Right before City and Colour were about to come on stage!! I sure was excited!

Dallas Green/City and Colour! (Side note: see what I mean about being short and all the other heads!!)

I'm not sure if this will load, or if it will be loud, but this is a video clip of a line from one of City and Colour's older songs, and the people of Nova Scotia love it! I don't think they could come here and not sing this song!

I wanted to capture a little bit of this day, because we both enjoyed ourselves so much! We spend the day exploring, walking way more than we anticipated (to the point that I was limping home), and enjoying an amazing concert!

Who would you like to see in concert?


  1. Aww soo lucky!! My boyfriend wanted to go to this concert but we kept forgetting to get tickets until it was too late! Sounds like it was awesome!

    1. Aww! It's too bad that you guys couldn't make it! He does come back to Halifax lots though, so hopefully you'll be able to see him next time! Dallas is wonderful live!
