Sarah McLachlan at SPAC

sarah mclachlan Announced today: Sarah McLachlan is lined up to play SPAC July 16. Tickets go on sale March 15 -- they're $40.50 and up.

It seems like a long time ago now (because it was), but McLachlan was one of the music industry's biggest figures during the late 90s because of her efforts to organize the Lilith Fair concert tours. And McLachlan herself sold millions of albums.

The tour that's stopping at SPAC is in support of a new album she has coming out in April.

By the way: You know those commercials McLachlan did for the ASPCA -- the ones that make you want to change the channel the second they come on because they're so sad? As of the end of 2008, they had raised more than $30 million for the animal org. (McLachlan parodied the ad in a car commercial during the Super Bowl this year.)

I saw her perform live in 1998. That's still in my top 5 shows of all time. I will be making every effort to be at this show!

No lawn tickets will be available for this concert…bummer.
