Facebooktwittertumblrby feather

10 years after the release of their 5th studio album The ConTegan and Sara will be celebrating the journey they’ve embarked on since through “The Con X: Tour.” The duo will perform the record acoustically in its entirety, as well as incorporating other fan favorites into the sets.   In a Facebook post, the sisters announced the tour to fans by saying, “In 2007 we released The Con, forever changing the course of our career and connecting us to so many of you for the first time…10 years later we continue to be amazed by how much it touched people. Much of it hasn’t been performed live in nearly a decade so it’s with great pleasure that we take these beloved songs back to the stage.”

16 dates have been announced so far, and the tour will travel throughout the United States and Canada. A portion of all ticket sales will be directed towards the Tegan and Sara Foundation, a group that fights for the rights, representation and proper healthcare of LGBTQ women and girls.

Tickets go on sale Friday and can be purchased here. Continue reading below to see the official announcement from the band, as well as a full list of tour dates.

In 2007 we released The Con, forever changing the course of our career and connecting us to so many of you for the first time. To honour the album's 10th anniversary, we will be celebrating with two very special projects this year. Today we are excited to announce the first project – The Con X: Tour. This fall we will travel across North America performing special acoustic arrangements of all 14 songs from The Con in order, followed by other T&S classics. Tickets go on sale this Friday at http://teganandsara.com/shows/, and a portion of proceeds from this special tour will benefit the @teganandsarafoundation. As we look back today, the first few records of our career felt like we were navigating winding mountain roads. But with The Con it was obvious we had turned a corner and hit an open stretch of highway – it was our first fully-realized Tegan and Sara record. The album was written about love, death, fear and anxiety, and 10 years later we continue to be amazed by how much it touched people. Much of it hasn't been performed live in nearly a decade so it's with great pleasure that we take these beloved songs back to the stage. San Diego, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Minneapolis, Detroit, Brooklyn, Boston, Upper Darby, Atlanta and Austin… we'll see you all soon! There will also be more dates announced, and please visit teganandsara.com/shows and teganandsarafoundation.org for all details. Xo Tegan and Sara
