Indigo Girls joins Brandi Carlile in Salt Lake City
The collaborations on “Least Complicated” and “Go” came as part of the singer-songwriter’s callback to Vivint Arena.
Brandi Carlile welcomed Indigo Girls to share the stage during her show Thursday in Salt Lake City. The duo made up of Amy Ray and Emilie Saliers emerged for two songs as part of the encore last night at Vivint Arena.
Indigo Girls and Celisse supported Carlile on the final leg of the singer-songwriter’s Beyond These Silent Dreams tour. Brandi has a long history of working live with Ray and Saliers, including opening slots for the iconic duo in 2008 and 2009 and swapping guest spots at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, Calif., last June.
Brandi Carlile brought in Amy Ray, Emily Saliers and violinist member of the Indigo Girls tour Lyris Hung to lead his band through “Least Complicated” and “Go” amid the seven-song encore in Salt Lake City. Indigo Girls originally released the first in 1994 Swamp Ophelia and the latter on 1999 go now social.

Last night’s encore started with Celisse performing her song “Freedom” with Brandi Carlile and her band. Brandi then went without guests for a cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock” before inviting Indigo Girls on stage. Celisse also appeared during Carlile’s main set for the tour’s base mix combining elements of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” and Radiohead‘s “Creep”.
Brandi Carlile will perform Saturday at the Wildlands Festival in Gallatin Gateway, Montana. The headlining tour then resumes with the opening of Indigo Girls and Allison Russell at the Merriweather Post Pavillion in Columbia, Maryland on Thursday, August 18.
