Canadian singer/songwriter and Lilith Fair co-creator Sarah McLachlan will celebrate the 30th anniversary of her third album, Fumbling Towards Ecstasy, by performing it in full during a 30-date summer North American tour. The trek begins May 25 in Seattle and runs through July 6 in Sugar Land, Tx. Feist will open all dates except in Toronto, where Allison Russell will support.

Fumbling was McLachlan’s worldwide commercial breakthrough, although it was released on a staggered basis first in Canada in October 1993 and then in the U.S. the following February. It is best known for its singles “Possession” and “Hold On,” the former of which was a hit on Billboard‘s Alternative, Dance and Adult Top 40 charts.

“I think it’s interesting as an artist or as a human for that matter, to be able to go back and look at a postcard of a time in your life and reflect on it,” McLachlan says. “I think this tour is going to be a real walk down memory lane for me, and I’m hoping that my audience, many of whom have been with me for 30 years, will also be able to go back in time with me.”

A dollar from each ticket sold will benefit the Sarah McLachlan School of Music, a non-profit providing free music instruction at no cost to young people. Tickets are on sale now via

Before the tour, McLachlan will join Janelle Monåe, Lucius, KT Tunstall, Wendy & Lisa, Mary Chapin Carpenter and many others at Brandi Carlile’s Girls Just Wanna destination festival in Riviera Maya, Mexico, on Jan. 18-21.
