The Washington Center for the Performing Arts is thrilled to announce that the Indigo Girls are coming to Olympia September 26, 2023 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the show go on sale to the general public on Friday, August 11. Pre-Sale for Subscribers and Friends of the Washington Center begins August 10 at noon.

Released in 1989, Indigo Girls’ eponymous major label debut sold over two million units under the power of singles “Closer to Fine” and “Kid Fears” and turned Indigo Girls into one of the most successful folk duos in history. Over a thirty-five-year career that began in clubs around their native Atlanta, Georgia, the Grammy-winning duo has recorded sixteen studio albums (seven gold, four platinum, one double platinum), sold over 15 million records, and built a dedicated, enduring following. 

On their 16th studio album, “Look Long,” Indigo Girls tell their origin story. “Look Long” is a stirring and eclectic collection of songs that finds the duo of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers reunited in the studio with their strongest backing band to date as they chronicle their personal upbringings with more specificity and focus than they have on any previous song-cycle. “We’re fallible creatures shaped by the physics of life,” says Saliers. “We’re shaped by our past; what makes us who we are? And why?”

“People feel lost in these political times,” explains Saliers. “Let’s lament our limitations, but let’s also look beyond what’s right in front of us, take the long view of things, and strive to do better. As time has gone on, our audience has become more expansive and diverse which gives me a great sense of joy.”

Crowd singalongs that often overpower the band itself are a trademark of Indigo Girls concerts. The duo has returned to the road and venues across the country are once again filling with the sound of those collective voices raised in song. The phenomenon epitomizes the sense of community and celebration that defines Indigo Girls’ music.

Tickets start at $59. For tickets, visit the Washington Center for the Performing Arts website.
