Currently gearing up for the release of her 12th studio effort, Wallflower, acclaimed jazz singer and pianist Diana Krall has this week announced the rescheduled dates for her world tour of the same name.
The five-time Grammy winner originally intended to kick off the North American run last fall, but was forced to postpone all dates in order to give herself enough time to recuperate from a severe case of pneumonia.
After getting back to full health, the 50-year-old will now return to the road for an expanded 56-date trek which kicks off at Boston’s Shubert Theater on February 25 – tickets for which are available on TicketIQ at a get-in price of $147.
Joined on stage by guitarist Anthony Wilson, bassist Dennis Crouch, fiddler Stuart Duncan, keyboardist Patrick Warren and drummer Karriem Riggins, Krall will then take in the likes of Wilkes-Barre’s Kirby Center for the Performing Arts on March 7 ($92), Miami’s Knight Concert Hall on April 14 ($169) and London’s Budweiser Gardens on May 26 ($138) before wrapping up at the Santa Barbara Bowl on August 30.
There are plenty of Diana Krall tickets still up for grabs on TicketIQ with the Aug 12 performance at Morrison’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre currently with the lowest get-in price at $60 and the Apr 13 concert at Jacksonville’s Jacoby Symphony with the highest at $238.
Krall will no doubt be keen to showcase her new covers album, which hits the shelves on Feb 3, and includes renditions of The Mamas and the Papas’ “California Dreamin’,” Eagles’ “Desperado” and Bob Dylan’s “Wallflower,” as well as the unreleased Paul McCartney composition, “If I Take You Home Tonight.”
But fans should also expect to hear plenty of her classic back catalogue, with her most recent shows featuring material spanning from her 1993 debut, Stepping Out (“On the Sunny Side of the Street”) right up to 2012’s Glad Rag Doll (“Just Like a Butterfly That’s Caught in the Rain”).
