Iconic singer-songwriter k.d. lang performs a 25th anniversary concert celebrating her critically acclaimed 1992 album “Ingénue” from the Majestic Theater in San Antonio, Texas. Lush and subtle, “Ingénue” allowed lang and co-writer-producer Ben Mink to explore jazz, cabaret and Tin Pan Alley songwriting, resulting in some of her greatest compositions.

"k.d. lang – Landmarks Live In Concert" premiered in 2018.

This Landmarks Live in Concert special features an uninterrupted performance of the complete “Ingénue” album, including lang’s GRAMMY® Award-winning hit “Constant Craving,” “Save Me,” “Wash Me Clean,” “Season of Hollow Soul” and “Miss Chatelaine.”

The concert also includes the beloved Leonard Cohen song “Hallelujah” and a previously unreleased song by lang and Joe Pisapia, “Sleeping Alone.”

The special also features an interview with lang by James Reed, an entertainment editor at Los Angeles Times.

Twenty-six years ago, k.d. lang was embraced by the music world, its elders (including collaborators such as Tony Bennett and Roy Orbison) and audiences all over the globe for her powerfully emotional voice and often quirky take on country music.

“‘Ingénue’ was a change in vernacular and vocabulary in that it was personal—finding some romantic space,” said k.d. lang. “It was time. It was me. I had gotten to a time and point where I wanted to be me.”

“Working with k.d. to create such a personal and special piece is one of the highlights of my career,” said Landmarks Live in Concert Director and Executive Producer Daniel E Catullo III. “This show is special in so many ways and I was honored to be able to work with k.d. to translate this show onto TV.”
