                COLLECTIVE CONCERTS proudly presents ALABAMA SHAKES                            with special guests JULY TALK 

Thursday, September 24
Doors Open at 7 p.m.

TD Place is thrilled to announce the concert Ottawa/Gatineau music fans have been hoping for. Alabama Shakes will fill the arena at TD Place on September 24 with the soul-stirring storm of roots rock that made them the must-see buzz favourites of festivals from Bonnaroo to Coachella.  It’s a not to be missed opportunity to ride with one of the world’s most in-demand performers on a journey through their raw-boned, triple-Grammy nominated debut album “Boys and Girls” and into the new, genre-bending world of their follow-up, “Sound & Color.”

“The arena at TD Place is a perfect venue for Alabama Shakes,” said Mike Cerha, TD Place VP Venues and Entertainment.  “It allows fans to be up-close and personal with the band as they take us all on soulful ride with stops in funk, rock and Memphis Blues.  It’s going to be an incredible night in Ottawa’s downtown live performance venue.”

“Sound and Color finds them shifting into a funkier, postmodern retro soul sound, the nine-piece band (including three “background singers”) occasionally reminiscent of the Black Keys with a sprinkle of David Bowie’s “plastic soul” period. The Shakes may be studied, but they don’t lack heart.” -The Guardian

“A straightforward soul revival would be too banal for the Alabama Shakes, who finished a sold-out two-night stand at the Beacon Theater on Thursday night. Its lead singer, Brittany Howard, can be achingly subtle or an unstoppable force of nature; she also happens to be an authoritative lead guitarist. Ms. Howard and the rest of the band are steeped as well in the patient grooves and storytelling strategies of soul, particularly the sounds of Memphis and Muscle Shoals.” -The New York Times

“Energetic front woman/guitarist Brittany Howard remains Alabama Shakes' guiding force. A lightning bolt of a singer who can move from whisper-quiet delicacy to rafter-rattling belting within one line.” -Chicago Tribune
