Tegan and Sara announce duo acoustic tour supporting new album & memoir
Tegan and Sara are releasing Hey, I’m Just Like You, a new album of reworked songs the pair originally wrote as teenagers, on September 27, just a few days after their new memoir, High School, which also revisits their teenage years, comes out. Now they’ve announced a tour in support of both. Appearing as a duo, Tegan and Sara will do mostly acoustic performances of their new songs (as well as some older cuts), read from High School, and screen found video footage from their adolescent years on the “Hey, I’m Just Like You” tour, their first in nearly two years.
About the tour, Tegan and Sara write:
This tour is going to be like nothing we have ever done. We’ll be solo (can we still call it “solo” if there are two of us?). We’ll be playing acoustic (mostly). We’ll be reading from our memoir High School, and performing songs from the new album Hey, I’m Just Like You. And we’ll be playing a collection of songs from our older records (don’t worry!). We’ve pulled our favorite moments from all the old video footage from our teenage years we discovered last year, and we will be screening clips throughout the evening. We have so much in store for you. It’s going to be a super special evening that you don’t want to miss. We’ve been away from you all for nearly two years and can’t wait to see you.
Tegan and Sara hit the road starting on September 24 at Murmrr Theatre in Brooklyn, and stop in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Winnipeg, Columbus, Montreal, Boston, Nashville, Atlanta, Austin and other cities. Tickets to the Brooklyn show go on sale Friday, 7/26 at 10 AM. See all of their upcoming dates, and watch a trailer for Hey, I’m Just Like You, below.
