Canada’s acclaimed Lights performing at Victoria’s Capital Ballroom this January


Lights is a staple of the Canadian pop music scene and so much more.

She is a singer, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist, comic book author, DJ and visual artist. 

Lights is from Timmins, Ontario and has been a mainstay of pop music in Canada and around the world since her debut single, Drive My Soul, entered the Canada’s Top 100 chart at number 18. 

Since then she has been nominated for seven Juno Awards and won five of those nominations, her comic series, Skin & Earth, has been published and that’s just the tip of the iceberg of what she has accomplished. 

She was last seen performing on Vancouver Island at the music festival, Laketown Shakedown, which is near Lake Cowichan in the summer of 2022. 

There she performed as the secondary headliner of the first night, opening only for the Arkells. Lights teamed up with the music giants from Hamilton Ontario to perform a couple of their songs with them as well as performing a cover with the Arkells of ABBA’s Vous Les Vous.

Now she’s coming to the island again on her 13 date tour.

She’ll be playing the Capital Ballroom on Yates Street  on January 31st in support of her new album, PƎP.

“Finally bringing PƎP home, it’s been a while since we did this,” said Lights. 

“Stack your playlists, set to repeat and get ready to sing loud with me on the Canadian leg of the PƎP tour.”

Tickets for the show went on sale on October 21st via Admit One. Tickets are not sold out at the time of this publication but chances are they will.

To open for her is renowned Canadian drag queen, Tynomi Banks
