Scott Helman is set to return to St. Catharines after headlining a festival show during the Canada Games in August 2022. The Toronto-born singer-songwriter had a busy November with the release of his new single, collarbone, and his “Back Together Tour” that took him to seven Canadian cities and wrapped up on November 30.

“We are thrilled to welcome Canadian musical legends Barenaked Ladies and the talents of Scott Helman to the stage at the Meridian Centre this April in celebration of the upcoming 2024 World Rowing Championships,” said Mayor Mat Siscoe. “It's pre-events such as this fundraising concert that will support the downtown businesses and increase the overall economic impact to the City of St. Catharines and Niagara.”

"This fundraising concert is a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together and support the upcoming World Rowing Championships,” added Bill Schenck, Chair of St. Catharines World Rowing. “We're grateful for the enthusiasm of our partners, performers, and the entire St. Catharines community."
