    k.d. lang Announces US "Ingénue Redux" Tour for February, March 2018

    Celebrating the 25th anniversary of her Grammy Award–winning, critically acclaimed album Ingénue, k.d. lang has announced a nineteen-city concert tour that will bring a live performance of the platinum-selling record to venues across the United States. Fans in cities such as Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, Denver, Minneapolis, Boston, and New York City can experience the album live, performed in its entirety. The tour follows the release of a re-mastered Anniversary Edition of Ingénue on Nonesuch earlier this year. The two-disc set includes eight previously unreleased live performances from lang's 1993 MTV Unplugged episode, recorded in New York City's famed Ed Sullivan Theater.

    Various pre-sale tickets will be available beginning Wednesday, December 6, through Thursday, December 7, at 10am local time. General tickets will be available for purchase starting Friday, December 8, at 10am local time. VIP packages including premium seating and meet-and-greet opportunities will be included in the general on-sale. Please see below for full list of tour dates or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    As part of this tour lang will perform songs from Ingénue—including the Grammy Award–winning hit "Constant Craving"—along with hits from her 2004 Nonesuch debut album, Hymns of the 49th Parallel. The tour's summer 2017 Canadian & Australian run had critics talking.

    "lang's performance proved that, even after a quarter of a century," said the Calgary Herald, "[Ingénue] is still an album to fully immerse yourself in… But it was the startling power of that impeccably controlled mezzo-soprano voice, which can veer from melodramatic and anguished to nuanced and jazzy in a beat, that stole the show."

    "lang's unwaveringly even voice is more dynamic live than in her pitch-perfect recordings," said the Sydney Morning Herald. "The singer interspersed feats of vocal prowess with moments of humour and playfulness."

    After first appearing on stage as the cowgirl with the golden voice, she went on to become the crooner who sang "Constant Craving" and also achieved much success interpreting other artists' songs. Some of her most memorable recordings are the (now-iconic) rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," Neil Young's "Helpless," and her collaboration with Tony Bennett on their 2002 Wonderful World duets album and successful co-headlining concert tour. He says of lang: "She's the best singer of her generation."

    Branching out into uncharted territory isn't foreign to lang. In 2014, she guest-starred in the hit TV show Portlandia. In 2015, the Alberta Ballet staged an original performance piece called Balletlujah!, based on the life and music of lang. More recently, lang collaborated with indie icon Neko Case and respected singer/songwriter Laura Veirs 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 and in 2013, she was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at the Juno Awards. She has appeared alongside such musical luminaries as Roy Orbison, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Loretta Lynn, and Tony Bennett.
