Following a hugely successful summer UK tour, Pioneering American singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega returns for a very special anniversary show celebrating 25 years since the release of the universally renowned 'Solitude Standing'.
With songs such as Tom's Diner and the Grammy nominated/ MTV award winning 'Luka', Solitude Standing became Suzanne's best known and most critically acclaimed album. Following this she became regarded as the vanguard of a new generation of female singer/ songwriters.
This one off London show will see the album performed in its entirety plus a selection of Suzanne's other classic material.
Suzanne's career received an extra boost in the early 90's when UK-based dance duo DNA released a remix of a cappella song 'Tom's Diner', which charted worldwide.
Her music has inspired a generation of female singer/songwriters such as KT Tunstell, Tracey Chapman, and Alanis Morrisette.
In 2010 and 2011, Suzanne released an exclusive collection, consisting of three 'best of' albums- 'Close-Up', with the most recent- Volume 3 'States of Being', released in the summer of 2011. The series of albums explores her whole catalogue of work- the basis for which is the main inspiration for this tour.
