Sarah McLachlan announces 17 additional dates for the “Sarah And Friends” tour, featuring Butterfly Boucher and Melissa McClelland. The newly announced dates include a Los Angeles show at Nokia Theatre at LA Live on February 9 and second nights added in New York City, Toronto and Montreal.

Praised as a mini-Lilith tour by many critics, “Sarah And Friends” offers fans an intimate evening with Sarah McLachlan as she not only performs classic hits and new favorites from her critically-acclaimed new release Laws Of Illusion (Arista Records), but also takes moments throughout the evening to answer questions from the audience. Sarah’s two friends and band members, Butterfly Boucher and Melissa McClelland, also have their moment in the spotlight, each performing their own short sets.

Said the Dallas Morning News of the November 1 opening night show of “Sarah and Friends” at the Verizon Theatre, “The revered Canadian singer-songwriter was personable, engaging and in great voice during two-and-a-half hours of stage time,” while the Ft. Worth Star Telegram called Boucher and McClelland “a pair of promising talents – burgeoning troubadours…” Prior to the “Sarah And Friends” tour, Boucher and McClelland spent the summer on the road with McLachlan during the 2010 Lilith Tour.

Of LAWS OF ILLUSION, her first album of brand new material in 7 years, USA Today raves: “Some of her most buoyant and beautifully crafted songs ever. Candid and thoughtful, LAWS OF ILLUSION, finds her tackling heartache head-on and leaves no doubt that she wants to find love again – and will.” And The New York Times glows: “The songs are as direct as Ms. McLachlan’s have ever been, and as finely tuned…The album is as lush and measured…It’s a collection of ballads, hymns, and waltzes, sung in long arcs of melody with a voice that enfolds its strength in breathy intimacy. Acoustic instruments gleam, with unearthly keyboards and electric guitars billowing up around them.”
