Tegan and Sara playing show in Calgary this October

Jul 23 2019, 3:58 pm

This won’t be like any Tegan and Sara concert you’ve ever seen before.

The musical twins are making their back to Calgary for a show this fall as part of their Hey, I’m Just Like You tour, which is in support of their new album of their same name as well as their memoir, High School.

In High School, Tegan and Sara chronicle their time spent growing up in Calgary, Alberta during the 1990s, and the difficulties they faced in finding their identities, sexualities, and futures, according to a Live Nation release.

Along those same lines, Hey I’m Just Like You is a brand new album that is built off of cassette tapes from the same era upon which Tegan and Sara recorded dozens of songs they wrote between the ages of 15 and 17.

The show is expected to feature archival video footage, readings from the memoir, and songs from the new album — mixed in with fan-favourite classics.

“This is the origin story of Tegan and Sara,” the release says.

Two shows will be held in Calgary on Thursday, October 10 — one early, one late — with tickets to both going on sale Friday, July 26, starting at $50.

“The Hey, I’m Just Like You Tour will remind you of all that is uniquely challenging about being a teenager; it will also remind you of that short and singular span of years when the future seems wondrously, enticingly possible.”

The album will be released on September 27.
