Emmylou Harris with Daniel Lanois – Massey Hall, Toronto

The timeless Emmylou Harris brought the North American leg of her Wrecking Ball tour to a close at Massey Hall along with the album’s producer and (just about) hometown boy Daniel Lanois. The tour celebrates the nineteen-year anniversary of her landmark record simply because she “just couldn’t wait for twenty.”

Lanois kicked off the night opening the show on the pedal steel, and moving onto guitar and vocal accompaniment for Emmylou’s headlining set. Sounding as sweet and heartbreaking as ever, Emmylou commanded the stage with grace.
