TEGAN AND SARA Tickets
Following a succession of glowing reviews and their highest Billboard chart position to date for their recently released sixth album ‘Heartthrob’, Tegan and Sara can now confirm details of their summer UK tour.
The dates – listed as below – follow last year’s tour which included arena dates with The Killers as well as select headline shows.
Featuring production from Greg Kurstin and Justin Meldal-Johnsen, ‘Heartthrob’ saw Tegan and Sara deliver a new exuberant and polished sound, and also represents the first album on which the duo co-wrote much of the material together (in the past, each twin would usually write songs independently of the other). “No one will confuse this with any of our other records,” says Sara. “It’s got a bigger, bolder, happier sound.” Tegan is explicit about the supersized ambitions motivating the record: “I kept asking myself: Can I hear this in an arena? Can I hear this on a teenager’s iPod as they’re riding the bus to school?” For all the superficial differences, though, ‘Heartthrob’ bears the true hallmarks of a Tegan and Sara record. The songs are terrific, full of lust and longing and regret, bouncing between the familiar poles of erotic rapture (‘Closer’) and post-breakup despondency (‘How Come You Don’t Want Me’).
But the lyrics seem less confessional than usual, a little more universal and philosophical, as if Tegan and Sara are reflecting on the experience of passion rather than undergoing its ecstasies and torments in real time. Tegan and Sara caught the attention of Neil Young’s manager Elliot Roberts after independently releasing their debut album ‘Under Feet Like Ours’ in 1999. Subsequently signed to Roberts’ Vapor Records label, the duo’s major breakthrough came with the 2004 album ‘So Jealous’.
Subsequent releases have seen the pair backed by members of Death Cab For Cutie, Weezer, AFI, while they have toured with the likes of Neil Young, Paramore, The Black Keys and The Shins. They have also collaborated with superstar DJs including David Guetta and Tiesto.
