If Sarah McLachlan is on your concert bucket list, or if you fondly remember seeing her in the 90s and want to reconnect, now is the perfect opportunity to take a nostalgic journey with the iconic Canadian singer-songwriter and founder of Lilith Fair. Next summer, she embarks on a 30th Anniversary Tour of her third album, Fumbling Towards Ecstasy, and it stops in Philadelphia on June 26th at The Mann.
This 30-date tour will kick off on Saturday, May 25th in Seattle with back-to-back shows at Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery, and travels around the country to play venues like Hollywood Bowl, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and Radio City Music Hall. While the focus will be on Fumbling Towards Ecstasy, there will also be a sprinkling of her greatest hits to satisfy those who have followed the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and secured her status as a decorated Grammy and Juno Awards winner throughout her career.
In a statement announcing the tour, McLachlan reflected on the anniversary by saying “I think it’s interesting as an artist to be able to go back and look at a postcard of a time in your life and reflect on it. I think this tour is going to be a real walk down memory lane for me, and I’m hoping that my audience will also be able to go back in time with me.”
Beyond her albums, Sarah is celebrated for her role in founding the Lilith Fair tour. During its three-year run, the tour showcased countless female musicians, raised over seven million dollars for various charities, and launched the careers of numerous talented artists. Sarah McLachlan’s commitment to giving back through music continues with this tour, as one dollar from every ticket sold will be donated to her non-profit Sarah McLachlan School of Music.
