It's been a long time coming, but it's finally happening: Filipino rock band The Dawn will be touring Canada for the first time this August.

Seven shows will take them from Winnipeg to Vancouver from Aug. 12-27.

"This is the first time," guitarist Francis Reyes told Billboard Philippines. "I've been to Toronto for the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival, and Mon Legaspi has played a couple dates in Canada with Wolfgang, I think.

"The rest of the guys haven't been to the Great White North, so you can imagine the excitement."
