Brandi Carlile has been one of the hardest working musicians in the game for a long time, but the last few years have brought her up to a brand new level. She has been collaborating with everyone from Secret Sisters to Marcus Mumford. She has been having annual Girls Just Wanna Weekend festivals in Mexico. She has been all over the Grammys. Whether you know it or not (you probably do), you’ve been in the presence of her music.
It’s only natural that she throws a North American tour in there, too. She’ll be stopping at Xcel Energy Center on July 30th touring behind her latest album In These Silent Days. If you’re anything like me, you’ve been waiting for her return to Minnesota since the lights dimmed over the MN State Fair stage in 2019. Hearing her voice in person is an essential experience in my book. Her music is just as inspired on this album as when The Story came out in 2006.
Lake Street Dive and Celisse are supporting the date as well. Celisse happens to be my favorite musical discovery of the year so far. Her opening set for Lucius left me wondering why she isn’t headlining her own tour NOW. She even played guitar for Lizzo on SNL. If you go to the show, make sure to not spend her set in a beer line. You’ll regret it very much.
Carlile’s performances are moving and her voice is larger than life. It will be a night to remember! Grab tickets here.
