Margo Price, the best thing about country music right now, brought her “Nowhere Fast Tour” to Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall last night (April 18th). It was the third trip to the city for Price, following a stint opening for Chris Stapleton in 2017 and two shows associated with TURF in 2016.

The nearly sold-out music hall was home to her largest headlining show in the city to date. It had originally been set for the Horseshoe Tavern, but when fans snapped up tickets as soon as they went on sale, the gig was moved from Queen West to the east end. Even though Price played to about five times the people she would have at the ‘Shoe, she ruled the Danforth as if she and her five-piece backing band had been crammed on the stage at the pint-sized former honky tonk downtown.

Between Price’s catchy and intelligent songwriting and the incredible tightness of the band, the rooms are only going to get larger going forward. Opening for Price was Nashville’s Blackfoot Gypsies, who celebrated their last night on the tour by having Price and her band members join in for a few songs during the opening set. The Gypsies returned the favour later in the evening, helping to close out the show with a raucous version of Credence Clearwater Revival’s “Proud Mary.” Price released her latest record, All American Made, via Third Man Records last fall.
