Thursday, September 14th – Mile One Centre
Ahead of her performance on September 14th at Mile One Centre as part of her Ingénue Redux Canadian Tour, k.d. lang has announced that the 2004 Galaxie Rising Star of the CBC, Janet Cull, has been chosen as her opening act in St. John’s. After consulting with numerous talent agencies, record labels, and each provincial music association to explore the talent pool in all of her tour markets, lang and her team have hand-selected innovative and inspiring performers from every region that complement her musical style.
As one of the principal trendsetters and influencers selected by Canadian Heritage Minister, Mélanie Joly, k.d. lang will be counted among a dynamic group of Canada 150 Ambassadors from all walks of life. An artist proud of her Canadian roots, lang has taken this honour deeply to heart and will open her stage to fellow Canadian musicians from each of the diverse communities she’ll be performing in as a way to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary. lang has previously demonstrated her commitment to furthering Canadian talent worldwide by famously covering fellow Canadian artists’ songs, notably on her 2004 Hymns of the 49th Parallel album, and she proudly stands by her chosen roster of exceptional support artists on her upcoming tour.
This tour, presented by AEG Presents, comes on the 25th anniversary of lang’s platinum selling Ingénue album and the huge hit “Constant Craving”, which launched her into stardom around the world. To celebrate this landmark anniversary, lang will be hitting the road across each Canadian province, where fans in 17 cities coast to coast, from Victoria, B.C. to St. John’s, NL, will have the pleasure of experiencing lang perform live as she brings her singular singing style to classics spanning her 30 year repertoire. Additionally, Ingénue will be re-issued this summer both as a special boxed set and on vinyl.
