K.D. Lang

Lighthouse, Poole’s centre for the arts, is delighted to announce Canadian singer k.d. lang will play the Concert Hall on Thursday 25 July as part of her Ingenue Redux – 25th Anniversary Tour, a continuing celebration of her platinum-selling breakthrough album that was re-issued in 2017. Tickets went on sale online at 9am on Friday 1 March and 10am by phone and in person from the box office. As well as performing songs from IngÈnue – including the Grammy award-winning hit “Constant Craving”, k.d. lang will play highlights from her career that began in 1984 with A Truly Western Experience – the first of three albums she made with country group The Reclines. Her most recent release 2016ís case/lang/veirs, was a supergroup collaboration with Neko Case and Laura Veirs.

She is renowned for her live shows, prompting 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 Canadaís highest civilian honor, 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 IngÈnue 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 albums 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 IngÈnue that includes eight previously unreleased live performances from langís 1993 MTV Unplugged episode. Regarded as Australiaís finest guitar duo, The Grigoryan Brothers will open the show. Having developed a reputation for enthralling audiences with the energy of their performances and the breadth of their repertoire – embracing classical, jazz and contemporary music from around the world – between them Slava and Leonard Grigoryan have won three ARIA awards from an incredible 24 nominations. As a duo they have made 11 albums and plan a new release this year.
