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 their 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” and new numbers from their 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. Sentimental as a canary’s funeral with anthems that echo like a Spartan pep rally, Simple Plan’s sheet-music blueprints, bulldozing guitars, and oatmeal hatred keep fans sheltered from the winds of cacophony. Sharing the stage, Vancouver’s Marianas Trench unleashes ambitious theatrical punk that pendulums between genres; Chilliwack’s These Kids Wear Crowns pulls fire alarms that activate disco sprinklers; and Baltimore’s All Time Low pops the cork on a shaken bottle of rock 'n' roll to douse fans in euphony.
