In a year when many events have been cancelled, Haligonians can still celebrate the annual tradition of watching Matt Mays rock the Shore Club in Hubbards during a weekend of shows this summer.

However, because of COVID-19, it will be a different experience than in previous years.

Mays and his band will play Thursday, Aug. 27, Friday, Aug. 28, and Saturday, Aug. 29 at 9:30 p.m.

Due to reduced capacity, there will be no individual tickets for the 19+ shows.

Instead, a "very limited number" of full tables will go on sale Friday at noon for each of the three nights. 

Six-guest tables are $492, ten-guest tables are $920, which includes tax and fees. Each guest at the table will get a limited edition, signed copy of the screen printed poster.

Those who aren't able to get inside the venue will be able to buy access to a livestream of the Friday and Saturday shows. More information will be available on

"My favourite thing on this entire earth to do is play the Shore Club," Mays said in a news release. "Those of you who've attended any one of the shows in the last 15 years understands why."

"We're a family that gets to meet only once a year, to sing out the last warm light of summer. It means absolutely everything to me to get to do it again. Especially this year. We deserve it."
