2017 is a landmark year for lang, as it represents the 25th anniversary of the release of her groundbreaking Ingénue album and the 150th anniversary of Canada. The convergence of these two anniversaries is momentous for the singer. Lang is an important part of the fabric of music in Canada, thanks to her original music, the music that’s inspired her and the other artists that she has covered in her own unique renditions. As a result of her deep connection to Canadian music, she’s been invited to be one of Canada’s 150th Ambassadors.
Fans excited for the tour know she is renowned for her live shows, prompting the New York Times’ Stephen Holden to observe: “Few singers command such perfection of pitch. Her voice, at once beautiful and unadorned and softened with a veil of smoke, invariably hits the middle of a note and remains there."
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.
Folk singer Jon Bryant has been chosen as k.d. lang's opening act in Vancouver.
