Tegan & Sara – Ambleside Park – August 31, 2013
Ambleside Park in West Vancouver was the filled with music and revelry on Saturday night as the ‘Most Nights Summer Tour’ featured Tegan & Sara warming up the large audience before FUN. headlined.
Starting their set under the late day sun, the all ages venue filled up nicely as the day progressed and came alive once Tegan & Sara came onstage. The duo are well known for their lively and witty banter with each other and their audience. Being a homecoming for Vancouver based Tegan they had an even more lively performance, Sara teasing Tegan for requiring a “Benadryl” before going onstage due to an allergic episode. Filling their near hour long set with a mix of material from their career; older folk-inspired tracks mingled with their more recent forays into dance and DJ collaborations. The setlist allowed something for all ages to sing and dance along to in a beautiful setting, with the sun dropping behind the stage and the Lions Gate Bridge illuminating behind the audience.
Perfectly timed with nature’s dimming light the set and audience energy reached its peak with the final song, their number 1 dance hit, “Closer”
As always the duo leave the audience wanting more of their effervescent pop energy but we’ll have to wait until next tour or find them live as they continue on the road with FUN. through the end of September.
