Sarah Mclachlan Tickets for Sale

Sarah McLachlan returned in 2010 with a new album, a reborn Lilith Fair, and she plans to continue her musical rejuvenation in 2011. The Canadian singer spent much of her time in the United States over the course of the year, but will return to Canada in 2011 with Sarah McLachlan tickets for an all encompassing North American tour. The tour schedule begins on New Years Eve at Atlantic City and will end March 26, 2011 in Oshawa at the General Motors Centre.

McLachlan, a Halifax native, spent years studying classical piano, guitar and voice, before being discovered fronting the band October Game in 1985 by execs at Nettwerk Records. She was 19, and had no experience writing any original material, but they signed her to a development deal which would cultivate the young artist's talent over a 3 year period in a new environment - Vancouver.

With the assistance of drummer Darryl Neudorf (54.40) and keyboardist Darren Phillips (After All) she made her recording debut with 1988's 'Touch'. With its ethereal lead off single, "Vox", the disc went gold in Canada.

While enthusiasm grew with her next album, 1991's 'Solace', Sarah was gaining a reputation as part of the new movement of female acoustic folk acts. Her stunning videos for the hits "Drawn To The Rhythm" and "Into The Fire" made her artistic creations part of the MuchMusic popular visual domain as well (read: she had been drawn into the MTV culture club).

Her audience was swelling underground and her popularity as a performer was being confirmed as she moved from opening act to headliner and 1993's 'Fumbling Towards Ecstasy' would establish her as a contender in the eyes and ears of the US market. The solid foundation of the album was built on the strength of the radio hits "Hold On", "Possession" and "Good Enough".

Another 3 years passed before McLachlan was able to once again offer her rabid fan base a new original platter. In defense, while the peddles were spinning, Nettwerk offered up two curios in the 1994 "live-off-the-floor" 'Freedom Sessions' disc (which featured a version of Tom Waits' "Ol' 55"), followed by a collection of rarities and besides including McLachlan's version of "Dear God" from an XTC tribute album.

1997's 'Surfacing' was the result of a long dry bout of writers' block following the long touring schedule from the previous 'Fumbling Towards Ecstasy'. The album took 8 months to produce and featured the additional help of McLachlan's newlywed husband, Ashwin Sood (drums), Brian Minato (bass, guitar), Pierre Marchand (keyboards, bass), and the Barenaked Ladies' Jim Creeggan (bass).

In the summer of '97 she launched a 35 date traveling concert caravan known as Lilith Fair conceived by McLachlan herself and was designed to highlight other female artists and their accompanying acts on two stages featuring the likes of Suzanne Vega, Indigo Girls, Paula Cole, Dayna Manning and Tracy Chapman among others. The tour gained steam and North American media exposure made it necessary to add a second leg.
