Barenaked Ladies: Last Summer on Earth Tour 2015
Barenaked Ladies are: the Juno Award-winning, Grammy-nominated Canadian alternative-rock group known for their infectious pop hooks and oddball lyrics
First Barenaked Ladies song to hit #1 in the states: “One Week,” which incidentally stayed atop the charts for one week, but has lived on in pop culture perpetuity for the last 17 years
BNL classics that strike the perfect balance between silly and heart-tugging: “Jane,” “It’s All Been Done,” “If I Had $1,000,000,” “Pinch Me”
BNL song that even those without a radio have heard: the rapid-fire evolution lesson that serves as the theme for The Big Bang Theory
Other science-related project: frontman Ed Robertson wrote “I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing)” with astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield, who played guitar and sang with him from aboard the International Space Station
What you’ll hear on the latest incarnation of their Last Summer on Earth Tour: decades worth of fan favorites and brand-new songs from their untitled new album
You know openers Violent Femmes: from jaunty alternative-nation anthems such as “Blister in the Sun” and “Kiss Off”
You known Colin Hay best: as the puckish lead singer of Men at Work, who filled the ’80s with bubbly singles such as “Who Can it Be Now” and “Down Under,” then went on to a softer yet still successful solo career
