Ingénue Redux Canadian tour in Charlottetown

k.d. lang watercolour (submitted)k.d. lang is about to hit the road solo across Canada, coming to Charlottetown’s Eastlink Centre September 8.

After exploring different creative platforms in recent years, this unique and multi-talented performer is returning to the stage in celebration of her first love, promising to take her music to new heights. 

2017 is a landmark year for lang, as it represents the 25th anniversary of the release of her platinum selling Ingénue album and the 150th anniversary of Canada. The convergence of these two anniversaries is momentous for the singer. As a result of her deep connection to Canadian music, she’s been invited to be one of Canada’s 150th Ambassadors. As part of this new tour lang will perform songs from Ingénue along with hits from her 2004 album Hymns of the 49th Parallel, which featured lang singing the songs that define her country by fellow Canadians, including: Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Jane Siberry, Ron Sexsmith, and Bruce Cockburn.

Branching out into uncharted territory isn’t foreign to lang. In 2014, she guest-starred in the hit TV show Portlandia, playing an exaggerated version of herself. In 2015, the Alberta Ballet staged an original performance piece called Balletlujah!, based on the life and music of lang. The creative process and dance numbers were also turned into a film of the same name, featuring lang’s participation, which aired on the CBC. lang has recently been working with new collaborators: indie icon Neko Case and singer/songwriter Laura Veirs. The three joined forces to write and record the album case/lang/veirs, which was released in June 2016. lang has won four GRAMMY® awards, eight Juno Awards, a BRIT, an AMA, a VMA, and four awards from GLAAD. In 1996, she received Canada’s highest civilian honor, the Order of Canada. In 2013, she was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at the Juno Awards. In 2016, she was honoured by the Royal Conservatory of Music.

Tickets are now available at eastlinkcentrepei.com. Show at 7:30 pm.
