Tegan & Sara “Thrilled” to Take the Stage at Lollapalooza

Riding the wave of success from their latest album, Heartthrob, Canadian rockers Tegan & Sara are ready to take the party to Lollapalooza. VH1 Top 20 Video Countdown host Jim Shearer recently sat with the twins to chat about their upcoming performance in August.

The duo is excited to be a part of the festival’s lineup, but Sara is particularly motivated. During their Lollapalooza appearance in 2005, Chicago’s notorious heat and humidity left her out of commission. “At our last performance at Lollapalooza, I fainted and I couldn’t make it through our set. I went down,” says Sara.

However, fans should have no fear – Sara’s figured out how to beat the heat. “This time, I’m going to wear a hat, and I’m going to ice my neck in a strategic way, and I’m gonna get on stage, and I’m going to give Lollapalooza twice the show.”

Catch Tegan & Sara at Lollapalooza in Chicago’s Grant Park, August 2-4.
