Home Sweet Home: k.d. lang’s Holds Latest Tour Canada

About 3 hours and 10 minutes as of writing, k.d. lang will be performing for her hometown fans at the Orpheum Theatre in Canada. It’s been 13 years since the singer toured and held a concert in her homeland.

Summer was the best season for k.d. lang to tour in Canada, as the country singer couldn’t help but laugh when the idea of performing during Winter was presented to her. She recalls all the ice storms she encountered growing up, while picturing all the possible disasters that could take place if she sings right through a stormy, wintry weather. Her tour, titled, The Ingénue Redux Canadian Tour began 5 days ago in August 12, followed by her next performance in Vancouver’s Orpheum Theatre that’s set to start in a few hours. It will run for two nights, before k.d. lang goes straight across the country and wrap the entire performance up on September 19 in Hamilton, Ontario.

k.d. lang expresses how much she wanted to tour in Australia and Canada. “It’s been a long time since I have gone coast-to-coast, which I am super-excited about. I can’t think of a better place to tour at this time in the world.” Her choice of performing in Canada and Australia also had to do with the current state of the world. The singer has lived half of her life in the U.S., and there is no denying that Trump’s presidency led to huge threats and down times for the LGBTQ rights.

She compared the current state of the U.S. with her hometown. “It’s a very chaotic, confusing time for people. To me, I think there is an openness here both geographically and morally, and heart (wise) and emotionally.” As k.d. continues to reminisce about Canada, she adds, “I think we are pretty open people, even though we tend to be kind of self-effacing and insular…To me it’s really great for an entire culture to have that sort of essence. It’s astonishing.”

Her latest tour was fashioned after the 25th anniversary of her 1992 multi-platinum album, Ingénue. The album contained some of her biggest hits like Miss Chatelaine and Constant Cravings. “It’s going to be interesting. We are going to do the record in its entirety in sequence at the beginning of the show.” k.d. lang describes as she muses on how fast 25 years seemed to have gone by. “My mom always says to me. ‘It goes faster as you get older’.” The Canadian singer couldn’t agree more.

Although she feels a touch of nervousness and doubts on whether she could pull off a performance that will make her and her audience travel back to the emotional component of her previous hits, lang is still filled with excitement for her shows. “I think and I’m hoping that some of the audience will have a relationship with that record. From what I hear from people, they do. It’s a marker in their lives as well. I hope it’s enjoyable for everyone.”

Aside from Ingénue set as the ‘heart’ of the tour, fans will also get to witness other delightful performances like k.d. lang’s rendition of Hallelujah. The song was originally performed by Leonard Cohen, and lang ‘s beautiful live cover at the 2005 Juno Awards in Winnipeg moved the hearts and minds of her audience.
