Loreena McKennitt Comes to Toronto

Published: 2007-02-14
Loreena McKennitt will open her first North American tour since 1998 with two concerts at Massey Hall and a stop at Montreal's Place des Arts. Although McKennitt has plans to tour more of Canada in the Fall, the current emphasis on US concerts is to meet additional demand expected from the airing of her first major American TV special, Loreena McKennitt: Nights From the Alhambra, to be seen on the PBS network in March.

Worldwide sales of her new CD on her own Quinlan Road label, An Ancient Muse, have exceeded more than half a million copies worldwide, is platinum in Canada, and has triggered two Juno nominations; McKennitt is nominated as Artist of the Year, and An Ancient Muse is nominated as Roots/Traditional (Solo) Album of the Year.

Here is where McKennitt will be stopping in Canada:

April 15, Toronto, ON - Massey Hall
April 16, Toronto, ON - Massey Hall
April 17, Montreal, QC - Place des Arts

Tickets for her Toronto shows will go on sale tomorrow (Feb 15) at the Roy Thompson and Massey Hall box offices www.masseyhall.com
