Hands down one of my favourites from the tour! I was fascinated and for the first few shows I legit thought Grant and Kirk were somewhere backstage doing backing vocals LOL my friends made fun of me for that 😂 anyway, thanks for sharing ❤️ now just patiently waiting for the release of the live songs.

The first night I wondered that myself. I was trying to figure out where the deep voice was coming from ha

Your hands may hurt but your voice remains the draw for me - and the banter with Tegan, of course.

The tour was amazing and I really enjoy the acoustic set. I loved the version of Can’t Grow Up. My jaw rightfully dropped.

Please release the tour music. I’ll buy it. 😊

What’s next for you? For Tegan? For Tegan and Sara.

P.S. I’ve drawn in another fan. I gifted my neighbor the TnS Hat from the tour and she began listening to your music. She told me “it’s like they made the music just for me.”

Back In Your Head will always be my all time favorite. I’m super emotional and this song always gets me teary eyed more than others (I am a Cancer, so that could explain that maybe).

This version is perfection and can’t wait for a recorded version! ❤️

It sounds amazing!! You're playing so well! It's hard to pick and sing at the same time (I find it harder than strumming chords).

I'm staring at your hands trying to figure out the chord shapes so I can pick along as well. Would you give me a hint, if this in standard EBGDAE or an alternative tuning?

EGDGBE is the tuning I'm using there!

Thank you <3 I thought that might be it! Same tuning as Want to Be Bad, and Not Tonight, which I've been playing often on my guitar since going to your recent show and re-discovering If It Was You. Love the artistic evolution of all your albums across the years.

Thanks again!

I found this episode of Ezra Klein’s podcast about pain really interesting… it opened up a whole new understanding of my experience of my body for me https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-ezra-klein-show/id1548604447?i=1000600805466

I think it means that maybe tegan was right and you should try yoga haha.

The tour was magical. Back in your head was beautiful.

Love it and love the tour's version.

Subtitles are great for accessibility, and not so great when it turns words like "Jews" into "Juice" (based on a true online experience from earlier today.)

It's fun for all of us I'm sure to hear you're finding your love for the guitar again, even though it sounds like you need an extra stock of Bengay.

I love that y’all keep mentioning a recording of the tour songs. It gives me hope. Absolutely loved this song live, it gave such a cool, macabre undertone.

Hey Sara,

Thanks for posting! I love this song! It’s so universally relatable but feels very personal too! ‘I just want back in your head’. And that iconic piano riff (can you call it a riff if it’s on the piano?).

Does this mean we’re going to get an EP of the not tonight tour/an acoustic re done IIWY? I really hope so!

Also please clear up the meaning of this line ‘I’m not unfaithful but I’ll stray’, I never thought that that meant you were, or had ever cheated, but someone in my family (who also likes the song) thinks that is what the line means? I thought it just meant ‘I’ll stray from things we agreed on, from us as a couple’ not that you were actively cheating. But I’ve always wondered?

I love this recording! I saw it on TikTok! (I also love that you don’t need an account to access people’s profiles on there).

I think all the BTS stuff is awesome!! Especially seeing as I can’t see you live!

Thanks for sharing with us! (And as a trans AFAB the back pain is very real for me too).

PS: I’m so excited to be officially part of the loners club now!
