Earlier today, the artist announced plans to start booking new outdoor private shows in Ontario and the Maritimes starting next month.
"I'm sad to say I'm probably your last resort. But guess what? I'm playing places most musicians are scared to play. And I'm playing them now," he says in a video announcement. "I'm ready to rock for you. I will play your driveway. Dirtbag driveway dive-bar coming to you!"
He adds: "Seriously booking September and limited [October] spaces now. Contact me for details."
The offer appears to be legit, as Johnston has offered up booking registration via email. Bookings can also be arranged via texts sent to 705-730-4603.
The "dirtbag driveway dive-bar" tour has evidently started, as photos of his driveway performances have already started popping up on the internet. See the announcement below, where you can also find some snapshots of previous driveway shows.
well @BAJohnston almost set my neighbour's lawn on fire and my landlord walked by and looked verrry confused, but I also got to see a show and bonded with neighbours I've never met so.... I'll call my first concert in nearly five months a success pic.twitter.com/qHKmSOSVtE— josh o'kane (@joshokane) July 26, 2020
