These social-conscious women each have a long list of accomplishments such as setting up a non-profit, restaurant entrepreneurship, and authoring books. The Two North Canadian Tour will kick-off in Vancouver on Saturday, September 21st and will head right across the country, playing from Nelson to Moncton through to October.

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 US.

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.

Tickets for the Vancouver show are on sale now via Northern Tickets or by calling (604) 569-1144 or 1-855-551-9747. You can also stop by the Northern Tickets office (near the Vogue Theatre) at 918 Granville.

    When we were married the first song that Laurie and I danced to was “Power of Two”. It remains one of our favourites.

    Power of Two

  34. TanyaMonday, September 2nd, 2013 — 10:18pm PDT

    “Closer to Fine” I was living and working in Dusseldorf, Germany for a year, partying with a bunch of ex-pats and frequently waking up with “a headache like my head against a board”, but the line that always got me was “I sailed my ship of safety ’til I sank it”. It convinced me to break up with my Canadian boyfriend (safe) and give it a try with a guy in Valencia, Spain I had been in love with for years (scary). The song helped me take my life less seriously ~ it’s only life, after all!
