KD LANG US TOUR

And Canada as well! There are a number of Canadian dates there in July and September, not to mention tonight in Thunder Bay.

Any chance we'll see kd & SBB in Europe?

Please could kd's Official website, www.kdlang.com be updated as people are more likely to look there than here and may well miss concerts.

The poor information on her website has been a long-standing concern for many years.

Please, please k.d. get your web site updated weekly!! Not everyone is on social media. Even better if there is a chance to communicate with you through your web site.
