Barenaked Baby News Tears Page From TourBy JANE STEVENSON, Toronto Sun, December 15th, 1998.
Toronto's Barenaked Ladies were down a singer at the group's Atlanta concert over the weekend.
Steven Page left the stage and jumped on a plane bound for T.O. last Saturday night after he was told his pregnant wife back home was going into labour.
"Steven did leave the show they ended up doing the show without him and he flew back to Toronto," confirmed a Warner Music Canada spokesman yesterday.
Despite the excitement, the labour turned out to be false, but expect a new Barenaked baby any day now since Page's wife is due between Dec. 14-16. It will be the couple's second child.
Page is now going to sit out the few remaining Ladies' dates this year radio station Christmas shows in the U.S. which wind up Saturday.
