      Did you know how Sarah got to Vancouver? “The signing with Nettwerk prompted McLachlan to move to Vancouver, British Columbia. There she recorded the first of her albums, Touch, in 1988, which received both critical and commercial success and included the hit song “Vox”. During this period she also contributed to an album by Manufacture, and embarked on her first national concert tour as an opening act for The Grapes of Wrath.”

      Yes this would be a Grand Night!

      I would love to attend this amazing concert with Sarah McLachlan.
      My elderly Mom and I attended Lilith last year at Ambleside expressly to see Sarah but had to leave long before Sarah ever came onstage due to the total clusterf*** of the evening. Couldn’t eat/couldn’t see/could barely hear. What a disaster that was! Her manager promised to help us out at a future concert (but he is not her manager any more)!

    177. BritaSaturday, July 16th, 2011 — 10:08am PDT

      I have loved her music from the beginning – what a treat this would be!

    178. jeffSaturday, July 16th, 2011 — 12:56pm PDT

      I haven’t listened to her in years, but Fumbling Towards Ecstasy was one great album.

    179. mariaSaturday, July 16th, 2011 — 12:59pm PDT

      “listen as the wind blows from across the great divide” – sarah has guided thousands through heartache and loss, love and triumph.
