Critically celebrated songwriting force TEGAN AND SARA have announced dates for a late Summer, early Fall American tour which will kick off in San Diego on Sep. 20, and will culminate with a 4 night stand in Los Angeles Oct. 16-19, in support of their current Vapor/Sire album, THE CON.

Following several months of continuous touring behind sold-out tours of the USA, Canada, UK, Europe, and Australia along with various summer festivals inbetween dates on Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Tour, Tegan and Sara return to the States before a well-deserved break to contemplate their next album. “The Mighty Quins” continue to enthrall audiences and draw rave reviews wherever/whenever they perform:

“A few songs into their Bonnaroo set, not only was the entire crowd singing along but they were understandably enraptured with the musicians. Despite the heavy heat, Tegan and Sara seemed remarkably cool.” – Spin.Com

“Tegan and Sara’s performance was among the best I’ve seen all year.” – Seattle Weekly

“Unpredictable anecdotes, playful banter…when the lights come up, a derisive jeer bubbles from the crowd…they don’t want to see them leave.” -- Blender Magazine

“Their heart-on-sleeve songs have a raw, emotional quality that’s uncommon in this era of high-gloss girl singers. These days, their sound has evolved into an edgy, dramatic style of pop-rock.” -- NY Newsday

Tickets for the tour will go on sale to the general public on Monday, June 23. However, there will be an internet ticket presale through Music Today beginning Saturday, June 21, at 10:00A.M. For details, go to: Support on all dates from City and Colour, and Girl In a Coma.
