AMP Concerts presents K.D. Lang

K. D. Lang brings her "Ingénue Redux 25th Anniversary tour to Santa Fe.

One of the most celebrated, iconic voices of American popular music returns to the Lensic, where she gave one of the most captivating, beautiful performances that we have ever seen.

This ambition can be heard as the brothers take the guitar into genres such as jazz, folk and contemporary music. There are no boundaries, only new frontiers to cross. In concert, mix it all together and you have a dimension to guitar-playing rarely seen in the musical world.

When not on stage they are in the studio, having released six duo albums, four of which have been nominated for ARIA awards (Australia's prestigious music awards).

Tickets: $349.00 - THE K.D. LANG MEET & GREET EXPERIENCE, $175.00 – THE DIAMOND PACKAGE (VIP2)
