Coming off the back of four sold-out UK shows in February this year, including London’s Barbican, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega has announced an extensive UK tour for February and March 2023, taking in dates which you can peruse below. Widely regarded as one of the foremost songwriters of her generation, Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early 1980s. Since the release of her self-titled, critically acclaimed 1985 debut album, she has written and recorded numerous songs that have become part of the contemporary music vernacular, including ‘Luka, Marlene on the Wall’ and ‘Tom’s Diner,. Her albums, including her self-titled debut, the follow up, ‘Solitude Standing’ and ‘99.9F’ have sold millions of copies worldwide.
Her most recent album An Evening of New York Songs and Stories (Amanuensis/Cooking Vinyl) was released in 2020 to widespread acclaim. Recorded live at the Café Carlyle in New York City, the collection features Vega’s most New York-centric repertoire in a celebration of her long personal and musical relationship with the city.
