The Spirit Indestructible Tour


The Spirit Indestructible Tour is the fifth concert tour by Canadian singer-songwriter Nelly Furtado, in support of her 2012 album The Spirit Indestructible.

The tour was announced on November 13, 2012 via Furtado's official website. The tour suffered from low ticket sales and several shows were cancelled and several shows had to be moved to smaller venues. In place of the cancelled shows, smaller shows were announced for Burlington and Belleville. The opening act is Dylan Murray, an artist from Furtado's label Nelstar Records. Murray also duets live with Furtado on the track "Be OK".

Ahead of the tour's debut in Furtado's hometown of Victoria, local radio station Ocean 98.5 held a contest offering tickets to the first show. The Huffington Post Canada held contests for free tickets throughout the tour's Canadian dates. Mississauga News held a contest for free tickets to the Toronto show.

Mike Devlin of the Times Colonist reviewed the first date of the tour and gave the show three stars out of five. Devlin wrote, "A mid-set run that included a faithful but lovely I’m Like a Bird and an empowered Força, during which she played ukulele, reminded fans why she became so famous in the first place. But few songs on this night could match the splendour of her most moving ballad, Try, during which her voice was nothing short of spectacular. “All I know,” she sang during the song, “is everything is not as it’s sold.” That much is true — about life, and about Furtado, too. Think she’s simply a pop star? Think again." The lt Vancouver Sun gave the concert a mixed review, writing that the concert "opened on an uplifting, hopeful note" but that the "rest of the concert was laborious".lt Marsha Lederman of The Globe and Mail was equally mixed, stating that "[Furtado] still has the vocal chops and stage presence, but the show was uneven".
