Montreal’s beloved pop-punk quintet Simple Plan pulls no punches, enrapturing fans with a fistful of hits and an exuberant stage presence that leaves audiences gratefully breathless. Since its 2002 debut, No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls, Simple Plan has crafted an impressive discography of unflinching music that stomps like a rugby team commandeering a gospel-tent revival. With hits such as “Addicted” and “Your Love is a Lie,” as well as new numbers from its latest album, Get Your Heart On!, the band's aerobic and cathartic pop has sold millions of records and garnered a coveted Teen Choice Award. As sentimental as a canary’s funeral with anthems that echo like a Spartan pep rally, Simple Plan’s sheet-music blueprints and bulldozing guitars keep fans sheltered from the winds of cacophony. Prior to the main act, the pop punk of Dallas's Forever The Sickest Kids kicks off the show with Texas-sized pep and vigor, and The Cab keeps the rhyme and meter running with epic tunes that slink and soothe like a python covered in aloe vera.
