Canadian singer-songwriter and three-time Grammy-winner Sarah McLachlan brought her tour to San Diego, where she played to a sold-out Spreckels Theatre downtown.

There was no opening act. Instead, two members of McLachlan’s band, Buttefly Boucher and Melissa McClelland, played mini sets during the show, performing their own songs with the band. Each proved to be a strong performer and songwriter in her own right.

The star of the show, however, was McLachlan, who led her band through two sets — broken up by a 15-minute intermission — that lasted almost three hours.

Along with the songs you'd expect to hear — "Possession," "Building a Mystery," "I Will Remember You" — McLachlan pulled songs from all of her albums, including her latest, Laws of Illusion.

Audience members could submit questions to McLachlan by putting them into a top hat in the lobby, and those questions, which ran the gamut from "What's your favorite song you've written?" to "Will you marry me?" were read by McLachlan throughout the show. It made for an unusual but fun concert experience.
