Tegan and Sara
Thursday 9 March
with special guest Montaigne
Tegan and Sara: 8pm
Grammy-nominated multi-instrumentalists Tegan and Sara will delight Twilight at Taronga presented by ANZ audiences for the first time in 2017, as they fill the Taronga amphitheatre with their catchy, heartfelt indie-pop for an evening under the stars overlooking Sydney Harbour.
Praised by Rolling Stone as “consistently thrilling,” the twin-sister-duo have achieved massive international success since first bursting onto the Canadian music scene in 1998, having sold over a million albums worldwide, performed alongside artists such as The Killers and Lady Gaga, and graced festival stages like Coachella, Bonnaroo and Glastonbury to name a few. Their shimmering eighth album Love You To Death (2016) debuted at #13 on the ARIA chart, and was awarded 5 stars from NME who proclaimed “Love You To Death is an indisputable KO… the Quin twins are relentless in their quest to move our hearts and feet –often in different directions.”
Australian art-pop darling Montaigne will join the 2017 series as support act for Tegan and Sara. In some of her first shows of the year, Montaigne will open for the Canadian superstars on March 9, the news following her two Top 25 features in triple J’s recently announced Hottest 100 of 2016.
