JUNO-NOMINATED ELL TO BE SUPPORTED BY WARNER
NASHVILLE RECORDING ARTIST ROBYN OTTOLINI ON ALL DATES
PRE-SALE TICKETS AVAILABLE TOMORROW VIA LINDSAYELL.COM;
PUBLIC ON-SALE TO LAUNCH ON JULY 22
Following a career-changing 2020, Lindsay Ell has announced details surrounding her first Canadian headlining tour. Set to kick off on November 21, the wAnt me back tour will see the GOLD-certified performer take to the stage in markets across Alberta and Ontario. Tickets will be available via pre-sale starting tomorrow (July 20).
“It feels so incredible to get back to playing live music. Not that I’ve ever taken performing for granted, but I have a whole new appreciation for hitting that stage,” says Ell. “After not seeing my family or any of my Canadian fans for almost two years, words can’t even describe the excitement in my heart for crossing that border this fall!”
Playing more than 200 shows in 2019, Ell will showcase tracks from her critically-acclaimed sophomore album heart theory as she steps onto the stage for her first Candian live performance in more than a year. Supporting her on all dates of this key-market run is Warner Nashville’s Robyn Ottolini, best known for her viral smash hit ‘F150.’
Celebrating her second #1 late last year, 2021 has seen Ell earn her first JUNO nomination (Country Album of the Year), first GOLD-certified single (“wAnt me back”) and celebrate the release of both a chart-topping UK hit (“hits me”) and a duet with labelmate Jimmie Allen (“Tequila Talkin’”). Ell will spend this summer performing at festivals across the United States and heading out on the Blake Shelton Friends and Heroes 2021 Tour in late August.
Eager to get back to Canada and celebrate the milestones from the past year with her fans at home, Ell will take the stage at 6 cities across Canada throughout November. The complete list of dates for Lindsay Ell’s wAnt me back tour is as follows:
Nov 19 — Edmonton, AB — The Palace
Nov 20 — Calgary, AB — Midway
Nov 24 — Oshawa, ON — Stage 44
Nov 25 — Toronto, ON — The Axis Club (formerly Mod Club Theatre)

Pre-sale for tickets begins July 20 at 10am local time, with public on-sale beginning on July 22 at 10am local time at lindsayell.com.
Earning more than 23M Canadian streams, Ell was the first Canadian female artist to earn a #1 single in more than a decade in 2017 with her chart topping single “Criminal.” Following the success of this release, Ell went on to win two CCMA Awards, became a CMA and ACM Award nominee and earned her first #1 in the U.S. alongside Brantley Gilbert with “What Happens In A Small Town” in November 2019. This remarkable achievement made Lindsay the first Canadian artist to earn this status since 2007 and the first Canadian female artist since 2003.
