Matt Good put on an amazing show the last time he came through town

Matthew Good revisits Beautiful Midnight

Canadian music icon Matthew Good has gone into the famous Bathouse Recording Studio to record new versions of select songs from his most iconic album, Beautiful Midnight, and he will be bringing those new versions with him when he and his band show up in February.

Good will be at the Tidemark Theatre as part of his celebration of the release of this EP – titled, I Miss New Wave: Beautiful Midnight Revisited – as part of his 28-date Canadian tour, in which he will perform Beautiful Midnight in its entirety.  Fans who purchase tickets to this tour will also receive a digital copy of the new EP, which was released Dec. 2.

“I’ve waited almost 20 years to reimagine these songs in the studio,” Good says. “I think I may have actually bettered what some consider my best work.”

Produced by longtime Good collaborator Warne Livesey, the new EP features brand new renditions of five classic songs from the triple platinum certified album, including “Surburbia,” “I Miss New Wave” and “Load Me Up,” which is still one of Good’s most played songs on Canadian radio.

Beautiful Midnight was Good’s most commercially successful album, selling over 300,000 units in Canada alone. The album was also awarded the Juno Award for Rock Album of the Year, and the Matthew Good Band received the Juno award as the Group of the Year in 2000.

Good, along with special guest Craig Stickland, will take to the stage of the Tidemark Theatre on Feb.12,  Tickets are $49.50 (plus applicable taxes & fees) and can be purchased at the Box Office Tuesday through Friday between noon and 4 p.m. or online at tickets.tidemarktheatre.com
