(New York, NY) – Alternative rockers Our Lady Peace’s recent headlining set from their very own Summersault Festival will be available on YouTube as of tomorrow, Thursday, April 16th at 4:00PM, EST. Primarily filmed on September 13th, 2019 at Landsdowne Park in Canada’s capital city of Ottawa, ON, the performance features the band’s best-known hits as well as some surprises. OLP frontman Raine Maida commented, “It had been 20 years since our last Summersault festival saw The Smashing Pumpkins, Foo Fighters, A Perfect Circle and a bunch of other amazing artists. Relaunching Summersault this past summer was a beautiful thing. We captured our performances on film and this live performance is OLP at its absolute best. Hope you enjoy.” To get a sneak peek of the concert, please click here.
