Published Aug 03, 2016It looks as if beloved Canadian troubadour B.A. Johnston is getting ready to leave the Hammer again, having just announced a block of fall tour dates.
The moustachioed "dump bear" revealed his tour plans today (August 3) over Twitter, posting a link to a tour route and alerting fans that he may well be hitting their "rat town."
While Johnston has a hometown show coming up at the end of the month, as part of Hamilton Beerfest, the tour officially kicks off mid-September. He begins out in Ontario, but has a number of dates spread out through that province, Quebec and the Maritimes all the way until the end of December.
