Live Nation Lushington is proud to present award winning, internationally successful Canadian indie-pop duo, TEGAN AND SARA. The identical twin sisters will perform live in Singapore on Friday, 29 July 2016 at The Star Theatre, as part of their promotional tour for Love You To Death.
Tegan and Sara’s Love You To Death, is the latest sonic chapter in a celebrated 17-year career that has seen them build an avid global following of fans and fellow musicians alike. Their unique ability to bridge the pop and indie worlds has allowed their music to cross boundaries of genre and culture effortlessly. This is a band that has performed comfortably alongside Katy Perry, Neil Young, Taylor Swift and The Killers, while also performed in the dusty desert at Coachella and on the pristine stage at the 2015 Academy Awards.
Tegan Quin and Sara Quin were born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1980 and began playing guitar and writing songs at age 15. Following the release of their first independent full-length album in 1999, Under Feet Like Ours, they caught the attention of Neil Young’s iconic manager, Elliot Roberts, who quickly signed them to his Los Angeles-based label, Vapor Records. Tegan and Sara’s first international release on Vapor, This Business Of Art, was followed by extensive worldwide touring, including opening slots with Neil Young himself and a first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman.
In 2002, the band released If It Was You, a foundational moment in Tegan and Sara’s creative path and musical identity. Its fresh sonic template and critical success in the US set up their fourth studio album, So Jealous, which ultimately provided their global breakthrough.
Since then, Tegan and Sara has achieved impressive career numbers – over 1 million albums sold, 7 Gold certifications, 1 Double Platinum certification, 3 Juno Awards, 2 Polaris Prize nominations, and a Grammy nomination. But even more impressive is the conviction that has driven Tegan and Sara’s relentless evolution as artists. Transitioning from acoustic roots to indie rock royalty in the mid 2000s, with widely acclaimed albums So Jealous (2004) and The Con (2007), they began the path of reinvention that continues to inform their creative identity today.
The duo explored a transcendent pop sheen for the first time on 2013’s Heartthrob, which deftly balanced critical acclaim with mainstream ambitions. The album, featuring lead single “Closer“, debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 chart and secured the band’s highest US chart position to date.
Produced by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia, Beck, Ellie Goulding), Tegan and Sara’s 8th studio album,Love You To Death, delivers 10 new tracks more vibrant and visionary than ever. Taking a page from dramatic non-fiction, Love You To Death finds Tegan and Sara mining their own lives to investigate complex relationship dynamics with the first single ”Boyfriend“.
