Here's what you need to know about Sarah McLachlan's Vancouver concert

The show is sure to be as sweet as "Ice Cream"
Singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan will kick-off her Fumbling Towards Ecstasy 30th Anniversary Tour in Vancouver on May 23, 2024

Sarah McLachlan fans won't have to go "Elsewhere" or "Hold On" much longer as she prepares for her tour to start in Vancouver.

They're likely "Plenty" excited if they're in "Possession" of a ticket for the singer-songwriter's May 23 show, but if they don't they shouldn't "Wait" for "Fear" of missing the show as tickets are nearly sold out.

The Pacific Coliseum concert is the only one in Vancouver. The tour will "Circle" back into B.C. for a date at Salmon Arm's Roots and Blues Festival, which would be "Good Enough" but the Vancouver date will be special as she's based on B.C.'s coast.

The tour is to celebrate her breakthrough Juno- and Grammy-nominated album Fumbling Towards Ecstasy which was released in 1993 in Canada and 1994 in the rest of the world. It was the first of a series of massive albums for her making McLachlan one of the best-selling solo Canadian female acts of all time.

No opening act has been announced; Feist is listed as the opener starting May 25 in Seattle.

Proceeds from the show go to the Sarah McLachlan School of Music, a non-profit organization providing music instruction to children in Metro Vancouver and Edmonton facing barriers to access at no cost.


Additional tickets have been added twice to the show so far and using areas not typically opened up for full concerts, but TicketLeader still shows what appears to be fewer than 100 tickets left in the Coliseum, which is set up for around 13,000.

Original tickets are $69.50 or $89.50 before fees.

StubHub also has about 150 resale tickets available with prices ranging from $114 to $223.


Neither Hullo nor TransLink have special trips planned for the night. No alerts have been issued for bus routes near Pacific Coliseum either.


In general, items not allowed in the Pacific Coliseum include:

  • outside food and beverages including gum and candy
  • glow sticks
  • selfie sticks
  • e-cigarettes/vaporizers
  • cameras

A full list of restricted items can be found on the TicketLeader site. It doesn't appear that the tour has any additional or different restrictions.
