Sarah McLachlan Announces More Summer Tour Dates


(May 2, 2011 – New York, NY) - SARAH MCLACHLAN has announced additional performances to her scheduled summer shows – with stops in Denver, CO, Saratoga, CA, and Redmond, WA with special performances at the Hollywood Bowl with Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, Red Rocks with the Colorado Symphony and Music Fest with the Vancouver Symphony. She’s also added more “Sarah and Friends” dates throughout the United States and Canada. “Sarah and Friends” offers fans an intimate evening with her as she not only performs classic hits and new favorites from her recently released album LAWS OF ILLUSION (Arista Records), but also answers questions from the audience. Also, Sarah offers her band members the opportunity to perform material of their own during the set, while Sarah supports them as a background vocalist.

Said the Dallas Morning News of the opening night show of “Sarah and Friends” at the Verizon Theatre, “The revered Canadian singer-songwriter was personable, engaging and in great voice during two-and-a-half hours of stage time,” while the Ft. Worth Star Telegram called band members Butterfly Boucher and Melissa McClelland “a pair of promising talents – burgeoning troubadours…” Prior to the “Sarah And Friends” tour, Boucher, McClelland and Luke Doucet spent the summer on the road with McLachlan during the 2010 Lilith Tour.

Multi-platinum, Grammy-Award winning singer/songwriter Sarah McLachlan released her first studio album of new material in 7 years last summer LAWS OF ILLUSION on Arista Records to overwhelming critical acclaim. USA Today raves: “Some of her most buoyant and beautifully crafted songs ever. Candid and thoughtful, LAWS OF ILLUSION, finds her tackling heartache head-on and leaves no doubt that she wants to find love again – and will.” And The New York Times glows: “The songs are as direct as Ms. McLachlan’s have ever been, and as finely tuned…The album is as lush and measured…It’s a collection of ballads, hymns, and waltzes, sung in long arcs of melody with a voice that enfolds its strength in breathy intimacy. Acoustic instruments gleam, with unearthly keyboards and electric guitars billowing up around them.”
