Two Girls: Indigo Girls Canadian Tour 2013
September 21, 2013
Vogue Theatre, 918 Granville Street, Vancouver
Decades into their career, the Indigo Girls still amaze conventional pundits with their ability to grow and thrive despite the changing state of the music industry. Emily Saliers and Amy Ray began performing together in high school. Since then, they have had a recording career that consists of fourteen studio albums, three live records, and three greatest hits compilations. Of these releases, seven reached gold status, four reached platinum, and one hit the double platinum mark, with cumulative sales in excess of twelve million albums in the U.S.
With the duo’s tour history spanning twenty-five years, as well as their staunch dedication to a number of social and environmental causes, the Indigo Girls have earned a devoted following over the years. So many artists who launched their careers in the late 1980s have slipped from our collective memory. In contrast, the Indigo Girls stand tall, having earned the lasting respect of a multi-generational audience.
“Whenever we play in Canada, it’s always a total blast and we come away talking about doing a whole Canadian tour … this has happened for years, well, decades actually … so I am super psyched about this tour,” says Amy Ray.
“I’m really looking forward to doing a real Canadian tour. I find Canada beautiful, diverse, and interesting, and I want to get to know the country and its people more closely. There is no better way to do that than to go town-to-town, playing shows along the way,” Emily Saliers adds.
