CANADIAN superstar K.d. Lang plays Lighthouse, Poole on Thursday, July 25 as part of her Ingénue Redux – 25th Anniversary Tour, a continuing celebration of her platinum-selling breakthrough album that was re-issued in 2017.

She’ll perform the album in its entirety in sequence as well as other songs from across her career, including the newly released ‘Sleeping Alone’, originally written during sessions for her 2011 album Sing It Loud.

It’s now more than ten years since k.d. lang last toured the UK although fans need no reminding of her power as a live performer that prompted the New York Times critic Stephen Holden to note: “Few singers command such perfection of pitch. Her voice, at once beautiful and unadorned and softened with a veil of smoke, invariably hits the middle of a note and remains there.”

K.d. 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 honour, the Order of Canada. In 2013, she was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at the Juno Awards and last year received the Alberta Order of Excellence Award.

She has appeared alongside such musical luminaries as Roy Orbison, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Loretta Lynn, and Tony Bennett, who observed: “She’s the best singer of her generation.”

Lang has also contributed to numerous soundtracks, has appeared in many films, and in 2014 made her Broadway debut in the seven time Tony Award-nominated musical After Midnight.

Her second solo album Ingénue marked Lang’s departure from the country sounds of her earlier releases. It remains her most successful record both in her native Canada and internationally. As well as the UK Top 20 single ‘Constant Craving’, the album’s highlights include the follow up singles ‘Miss Chatelaine’ and ‘The Mind of Love’ and the songs ‘Save Me’ and ‘Still Thrives This Love’ later used in the film Soldier’s Girl.

The tour follows the release of a re-packaged, re-mastered 25th Anniversary two-disc edition of Ingénue that includes eight previously unreleased live performances from Lang’s 1993 MTV Unplugged episode.

Regarded as Australia’s finest guitar duo, support act The Grigoryan Brothers enjoy a reputation for enthralling audiences with the energy of their performances and the breadth of their repertoire.
