UK SENSATION EMELI SANDE TO MAKE HER NORTH AMERICAN LIVE DEBUT WITH A STRING OF STATESIDE SHOWCASES BEGINNING FEBRUARY 27; SHE RETURNS TO THE U.S. THIS SUMMER TO OPEN FOR COLDPLAY
Our Version of Events – the debut album from Capitol Records’ artist Emeli Sande – debuted on the UK Album Chart at No. 1 this week. Due for release in the U.S. on June 5, Our Version of Events is a powerful platform for Sande’s rich, soulful voice and sophisticated songwriting. As Q magazine put it: “She’s made an album that deserves to linger in the limelight – passionate, powerful, and possessed of real star quality.” A heady and complex soundscape to showcase her towering talent, Our Version of Events is rife with raw emotion, while bearing a sharp and shining retro-futurist feel.
Emeli will make her North American live debut with a string of stateside showcases beginning Monday, February 27. In addition to private shows in New York City and Los Angeles, she will perform for the public in San Francisco, Minneapolis, and Toronto before returning to the U.S. this summer to open a series of arena shows for her Capitol Records’ label mates Coldplay, whom she toured with in the UK in December.
The Scottish-born singer and songwriter won the 2012 Critics Choice Award at the BRITs (recent winners include Adele and Florence + the Machine) and was also nominated for “Breakthrough British Artist” this year.
Emeli’s upcoming tour dates are as follows:
02/27 New York, NY The Box (private)
03/01 Los Angeles, CA Hollywood Forever Cemetery (Private)
03/02 San Francisco, CA Caf
