One of this countrys most beloved singers is going into back-to-basics mode to mark Canadas 150th as well as the 25th anniversary of her landmark Ingenue album.

After concentrating on collaborative projects with Neko Case and Laura Veirs, as well as her band the Siss Boom Bang, k.d. lang is heading out on a cross-Canada summer tour that will wrap up in Toronto with two shows at Sony Centre on August 30 and 31.

The set list will include cuts from Ingenue which spawned hits Constant Craving and Miss Chatelaine as well as her 2004 record Hymns Of The 49th Parallel, which featured covers of fellow Canadian legends such as Joni Mitchell and Neil Young.
