We’re so excited to announce that we’ll be performing at WorldPride 2014 – Toronto on June 29!

We attended our first Toronto Pride in 1999! YUP – we’re THAT old! Since then we have had the pleasure of celebrating Pride in Toronto with friends too many times to count. But this year is extra special! It’s WORLD Pride in Toronto! And WE are going to be there. Not just wandering around drinking lemonade and checking out the festivities this time. We’re actually playing this year! We couldn’t be more proud to be involved!

See you there!

Closer Choir at the JUNOs! http://www.teganandsara.com/closerchoir/ http://www.teganandsara.com/closerchoir/#comments Fri, 07 Mar 2014 17:59:06 +0000 admin http://www.teganandsara.com/?p=5861 [read more...]]]>

Hi singers and choir-folk!

As you may know, we’re performing at this year’s Juno Awards and we’ve been working really hard to create a special show unlike any other we’ve done before.

We wanted to keep this a surprise, but even better than a surprise is getting YOU involved.

With the help of directors Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman of Toronto’s Choir! Choir! Choir!, we’ll be performing Closer backed up by 20+ singers, but first we need to assemble the choir!

Now, this is where you come in!

If you think you have what it takes to be a part of our choir, upload a video to YouTube of you singing Closer a cappella, title it “Closer Choir Submission!” and tweet it to us with the hashtag #CloserChoir so we can listen!

But before you do, please read these rules.

1. Videos should be no longer than (1) one minute long.
2. Videos should not include a backing track. We want to hear your voice!
3. Video must be submitted by Monday, March 17th at 12pm (noon) PST.
4. If selected, you must be available in Winnipeg for up to 4 rehearsals and 1 performance between March 26th and March 30th.
5. You must be 19 or older.
6. No accommodations or travel will be provided.
7. We will ask all selected choir members to sign a performance agreement.

Now, let’s get started!

Gifts at VIP Meet & Greets! http://www.teganandsara.com/meet-and-greets/ http://www.teganandsara.com/meet-and-greets/#comments Thu, 06 Mar 2014 21:17:36 +0000 admin http://www.teganandsara.com/?p=5851 [read more...]]]>

Hello friends!

As we prepare for our time out on the road this spring / summer, we have a few things we’d like to share with you about our VIP Meet and Greets!

We’re constantly impressed by our talented and creative fans and overwhelmed by the generosity we witness at the Meet and Greets. Some of the most thoughtful gifts have come from you, and we’re forever thankful for the love and effort you’ve put into them. Though we truly love the presents, your presence at the concert is gift enough, which is why we’d like to make a few requests / suggestions!

- Bringing us food and drinks is not necessary and often goes to waste, as we have a full rider of food and drinks backstage!

- The stuffed animals (especially the giraffes) are sweet and thoughtful but we usually end up donating them to local second-hand or charity shops.

- We LOVE the fan art and letters. If you have either of these items for us, please bring them without frames!

Again, we want to stress how much we greatly appreciate the thought and love that goes into the gifts. As a rule of thumb, remember that we’re on the road and space is limited! As much as we’d love to take EVERYTHING you give us, we simply don’t have the room.

Our preference is that you come to the show, enjoy the VIP experience, and not feel the need to give us anything. After all, we’re supposed to be your gift!!!

See you soon!

Holy puck!

It doesn’t get much more Canadian than this! We’re so excited to be performing at the NHL Heritage Classic this Sunday, March 2nd with Sarah McLachlan and Odds at BC Place! The Vancouver Canucks are taking on the Ottawa Senators and we hear it’s going to be a good one!

We’ll be playing the Pre-Game and the 1st Intermission, so if you’re in the area you can get tickets to the game at http://www.ticketmaster.ca/NHL! If you’re not in the area, make sure to tune in on Sunday at 1pm PST on your trusty television!
