On Thursday night, Lizzo returned to Toronto for a sold out show at Budweiser Stage. This was the second Toronto concert of 2019 for the American ‘Bop Star,’ who played the 1,500 capacity Danforth Music Hall in May following the release of her major label debut album, Cuz I Love You. Originally scheduled to perform at night club Rebel, Thursday’s show was later moved due to overwhelming demand to the 15,000 capacity Budweiser Stage, ten times the size of crowd she played to just months earlier.
Ahead of the massive show, Lizzo was surprised by Warner Music Canada with a Gold award plaque for Cuz I Love You, along with a Triple Platinum award plaque for one of the summer’s biggest hits “Truth Hurts.” Cuz I Love You also features the Gold-certified hit “Juice,” which Lizzo closed out Thursday’s show with.
Watch the brand new lyric video for “Truth Hurts” below.
UK electro-pop group Clean Bandit received their first Canadian certification in 2014 with their breakthrough hit “Rather Be,” which later went on to earn them a Double Platinum certification. In 2017, Clean Bandit outdid themselves with “Rockabye,” which became their highest certified track in Canada when it was certified Triple Platinum on April 12.
Prior to their headlining show in Toronto with multi-Platinum artist Zara Larsson, Clean Bandit were presented with Triple Platinum plaques for “Rockabye” by Warner Music Canada. Following the Toronto show, they traveled to Montreal for their final Canadian date of their tour.
Amidst an extensive world tour that will find them on the road through 2017, alternative hip hop duo Twenty One Pilots were in Toronto, ON last week for a sold-out show at the Molson Canadian Amphitheater. Prior to their performance, the band was presented with custom award plaques by Warner Music Canada signifying the Triple Platinum certification of their single “Stressed Out,” and the Platinum certification of the 2015 album Blurryface. The album also features the Gold single “Tear In My Heart.”
Earlier this Spring, the band toured through Canada beginning with two nights at Montreal, QC’s Metropolis, and wrapping up with two nights at Vancouver, BC’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre. The band will return to Canada in September for appearances at Edmonton, AB’s Sonic Boom Festival, and Calgary, AB’s X-Fest.
The video for the breakout Triple Platinum track “Stressed Out” can be viewed below.
