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 album Hymns of the 49th Parallel. The tour’s first leg of North American Dates had critics talking:
“A canny and sumptuous blend of roots music and pre-rock pop, “Ingénue” sounds as great today as it did upon its release… [the songs] shimmered with dreamy textures…”
– Los Angeles Times
“Vocal power, humor make k.d. lang’s Minneapolis concert sublime”
– Minneapolis Star Tribune
“The album finale, “Constant Craving,” didn’t disappoint. Led by lang’s soaring vocals, it earned a long standing ovation.”
– St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“I try not to use the word ‘perfection’ lightly, but this concert was the very definition of it.”
– The Seattle Lesbian
This tour follows the release of a re-packaged, re-mastered Anniversary edition of “Ingénue,” released by Nonesuch last 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. Watch her performance of “Constant Craving” HERE.
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 folk 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.
