We are sitting backstage at the Bronson Centre in Ottawa. Tonight is the 1st of 2 shows here at this beautiful venue. Officially we are in the final stretch! 5 shows left and we’re done for a few weeks before heading back into the US. Its been 2 years since we toured Canada and boy have we missed everyone. This past month has been a dream. Every night I fall asleep counting my lucky stars that things have worked out the way they have for us. Our fans, our family, our friends and this wonderful country are more than we could ever ask for. Thank you to everyone. Backstage tonight we’re all feeling a bit tired but also very silly. So we have drafted a list of our favourite moments from the tour so far. Also, we’ve collected some of our favourite photos by the lovely LINDSEY BYRNES!!! Enjoy!
The Tegan and Sara Official Band and Crew List of Things that we LOVED on this tour:
*Playing Place Des Arts in Montreal. Akin to playing the Starship enterprise.
*The PA shutting off in the middle of song #2 in Kelowna. They were so patient!
*Meeting Ryan Johnson from The Canucks! Him and his arms! What!
*Shooting an Episode of Mamma Yamma. We wrote and sang brand new
lyrics for Alligator on the show. Stay tuned for later posts about when this will air!
*Playing Massey Hall in Toronto. A classic venue we’ve aimed to play for 12 years. Finally!
*Playing radio stations all across the country for a live in studio
audience. It was SO nice to connect with our fans again! You all are so sweet and cute!
*Seeing the Women’s National Hockey Team play in St Albert!
*Getting sick from the Swing of the Century at West Edmonton Mall. What happened to you West Eddy?
*Doing yoga as a group in the venue. We’ve officially gone green!
*Getting over sinus Headaches and dry skin when we hit the eastern part of Canada.
*Playing 28 songs a night and STILL feeling like we’re not playing long enough.
*My Number! Its baaaaaaack!
*Sara and Shaun’s snowshoe in Saskatoon.
*That’s what She said.
*The Heart and soul of the audience in Saskatoon, by far one of the best
audience we’ve EVER played to!
