Tegan and Sara have always been known for their between-song banter. Now, the Canadian pop sibling duo are working it more formally into their upcoming tour. They'll kick off the Not Tonight Tour on March 20 in Richmond Hill, Ontario, which is billed as a special "Intimate Evening Of Music & Storytelling."

The trek is a 13-city run of specially curated shows across Ontario with stops in Brantford, Brampton, Chatham-Kent, Huntsville and more, and the pair promise acoustic performances and storytelling. It's a rare opportunity for fans in secondary markets to catch their heroes. Supporting on all dates is guest Becca Mancari. Tickets are available now at


The storytelling focus of the Not Tonight Tour reflects the fact that throughout their 20+ year career, spanning ten studio albums and more than a million records sold, Tegan and Sara's music has always served as a medium for storytelling. The sisters continue to build a multi-faceted media empire that encompasses TV, books, newsletters and public service.The latest addition to their resume is executive producer credits after the fall 2022 release of the coming-of-age TV series High School, based on their critically acclaimed, New York Times best-selling memoir.

In 2023, Tegan and Sara released Junior High, a young adult graphic novel series they authored, to be followed by the October 2024 release of CRUSH, Volume Two in the series. The publisher describes CRUSH as "a contemporary middle grade graphic novel duology, all about crushes, crushing it, and being crushed by life in junior high." It can be pre-ordered here.

Tegan and Sara will take a short pause in the tour to fly out to Halifax for the Juno Awards on March 24. There they will be presented with the 2024 Humanitarian Award, fitting recognition for their LGBTQ+ Advocacy work through the Tegan and Sara Foundation.
