Indigo Girls tickets

Indigo Girls tickets - Indigo Girls Tour

Indigo Girls Schedule

They may have emerged in the late '80s as part of the folk music revival period, but the Indigo Girls have proven they possess timeless qualities to give them some longevity while other artists from that era faded into the background. The blend of their two distinctive dispositions and songwriting approaches boast an interesting balance.

Emily Saliers was known for her mellow sound and complex music, and was inclined to be drawn to the spiritual and intangible. On the other hand, Amy Ray tapped into punk rock, drawing inspirations from Husker Du, the Pretenders and the Jam. Despite their different approaches, the Indigo Girls have managed to transcend three decades and to maintain their loyal fan base.

The Indigo Girls are back on the road again, and you can catch them at venues like the Belly Up Aspen in Aspen, Colorado; Ocean City Music Pier in Ocean City, New Jersey; Sun Center in Aston, Pennsylvania; Whitaker Center in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; Akron Civic Theatre in Akron, Ohio; Ferguson Center for the Arts Concert Hall in Newport News, Virginia; and more. Sign up for event updates through StubHub to get the skinny on the Indigo Girls full schedule, so you'll always be in the know when they head to a town near you.


Indigo Girls Background

Emily Saliers and Amy Ray initially were introduced in elementary school and began playing together in high school in Decatur, Georgia.

They named themselves the Indigo Girls in 1985, while attending Emory University, gigging weekly at a bar in the Emory Village area. Prior to that, they performed under the names of The B-Band and later on as Saliers and Ray. Their self-titled and independently recorded EP arrived in 1986. A year later, Strange Fire, a full-length album, was issued. With only 7,000 copies released, the album didn't garner much attention.

In 1988, things started to perk up for the Indigo Girls, in the age of other successful acts like Tracy Chapman, 10,000 Maniacs and Suzanne Vega.They quickly inked a deal with Epic Records. In 1989, their eponymous album was a success, featuring the hit "Closer to Fine" single. The album eclipsed the Top 30 and claimed a Grammy for Best Folk Recording in 1989. By the time 1991 came to a close, the album attained platinum sales.

Re-released in the fall, Strange Fire contained a cover of "Get Together," which was swapped for one of the album's initial tracks. The follow-up, 1990′s Nomads Indians Saints, received a Grammy nod and later on claimed gold status.

In 1991, an EP, Back on the Bus, Y'All, was cut and earned gold status and a Grammy nomination as well. A year later in the spring, the Indigo Girls' Rites of Passage, landed at No. 22 and earned platinum status by the end of the year. Next came Swamp Ophelia which debuted the charts at No. 9. Another gold album was added to the Indigo Girls' repertoire by the year's end.

In 1995, the double live album 1200 Curfews, was released followed by the much-anticipated Shaming of the Sun in 1997. Two years later, Come on Now Social arrived.

Other albums included: Become You (2002) and All That We Let In (2004), which was noted as one of the Indigo Girls' strongest albums in years. A rarities set came out in 2005, celebrating their 20-year anniversary as the Indigo Girls.

In 2009, Poseidon and the Bitter Bug became their first independent record in over two decades. Staring Down the Brilliant Dream was a double-disc project that appeared in 2010, highlighting live performances from concerts held between 2006 and 2009. The year was wrapped up with the release of Holly Happy Days, a holiday-themed bluegrass album. In 2011, Beauty Queen Sister served as the Indigo Girls' 14th studio album.
