Modesty fell by the wayside when the Barenaked Ladies took the stage at Queens Place Emera Centre on October 20, prompting some 1,700 people danced to dance and sing along during the Liverpool stop of their Canada 1 Five 0 tour.
The band put on an energetic show, sometimes comically making up songs about supper at Lane's Privateer Inn or about mundane observations of what was happening in the recreation centre.
The group started with a more acoustically styled set and moved into more of a rock feel as the show progressed. The band also led the crowd in what became a sing-along of the Tragically Hip's Ahead By A Century where fans could be heard shouting tributes to the late Gordon Downie.
The concert ended with fan favourites like One Week and Million Dollars, which even included an audience member climbing up onto the stage to dance and belt out the vocals with the band.
