‘Ordinary’s just not good enough’ so extraordinary Canadian rock band Our Lady Peace will perform as part of Western University’s Homecoming 2015 festivities.

This year, Western is teaming up with the University Students’ Council (USC), PremierLife and Western Alumni to launch #HOCOonthehill – a full day of programming on Saturday, September 26 that starts at 9 a.m. – and Our Lady Peace will be headlining the evening concert.

Chart-topping Canadian electronic duo DVBBS is the featured artist at the previously announced morning concert.


Consisting of Raine Maida, Steve Mazur and Western alumnus Duncan Coutts, Our Lady Peace has sold more than five million albums worldwide, counting four JUNO Awards and 10 Much Music Video Awards amongst their accomplishments. The band’s latest album, “Curve,” debuted in the Top 10 of Canada’s national album sales chart and the album’s first single, “Heavyweight,” charted at #1 on Canada’s Mainstream Rock radio airplay chart.
