Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce the long-awaited return to New Zealand of one of the USA’s most critically acclaimed singer/songwriters – nine-time Grammy winner Norah Jones.
The ‘Come Away With Me’ singer will perform at Christchurch Town Hall on 29 April 2019. This will be one of the beguiling pianist and vocalist’s first performances in New Zealand in 14 years!
‘She put on a self-assured show that drew from all aspects of her career while finding focus seated at the piano in her sultry, smoky-voiced comfort zone.’ – Philadelphia Inquire
Jones’ groundbreaking 2002 debut album, Come Away With Me, was a massive global phenomenon, selling over one million copies in Australia alone and 27 million globally. To date, Jones has sold over 50 million albums worldwide, her incredible career showcasing an enviable versatility and true mastery of her craft.
From jazz to country, folk, rock and soul, Jones is a singular talent whose work crosses all the boundaries of American music – as evidenced on her chart-topping solo releases: Feels Like Home (2004), Not Too Late (2007), The Fall (2009), the genre-bending Little Broken Hearts (2012, produced by Danger Mouse), and her most recent longplayer, Day Breaks (2016). Not to mention, her work with collective bands The Little Willies and Puss N Boots.
One of the music world’s most consistently intriguing singer-songwriters, Jones’ sees her latest album, Day Breaks, as a kind of kindred spirit to her smash hit debut, the singer returning to her unmistakably unique sound.
