Ordway Center for the Performing Arts is thrilled to present multiple GRAMMY Award-winning jazz pianist and world-renowned singer, Diana Krall on Tuesday, June 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Ordway Music Theater. Tickets start at $68 and can be purchased online at www.ordway.org, by phone at 651-224-4222 or in person at the Ordway ticket office, starting this Friday, January 26.
Krall continues with the fourth North American leg of her international “Turn Up The Quiet World Tour” that has visited over 80 cities in Europe and North America thus far. Twenty additional U.S. concert dates have just been announced for June. Among the many highlights of this tour leg are New Orleans, Memphis as well as multiple dates in Texas including Austin’s ACL Live at The Moody Theatre. For a complete list of dates and for local on-sale information, visit www.dianakrall.com.
Having already ventured to Europe and with plans to visit South America, the “Turn Up The Quiet World Tour” is shaping up to be one of the biggest in Krall’s career. Her familiar band of Anthony Wilson (guitar), Karriem Riggins (drums), Robert Hurst (Bass) and Stuart Duncan (fiddle) have been wowing audiences with material from Krall’s stunning latest album Turn Up The Quiet (Verve Records). Earning critical praise, DOWNBEAT Magazine called the album “spellbinding… Krall knows how to put her own distinctive stamp on decades-old standards, making them sound fresh and vibrant.”
“Turn Up the Quiet” holds significant importance as it was the last recording Krall made with her long-time mentor and collaborator, producer Tommy LiPuma, before his sudden passing last year and is dedicated to his memory.
Krall recently wrapped the second leg of her North American tour with two incredible nights at The Hollywood Bowl in August, along with a stellar performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Click here to watch: http://abc.tv/2xTLMai.
Diana Krall is the only jazz singer to have eight albums debut at the top of the Billboard Jazz Albums chart. To date, her albums have garnered five Grammy® Awards, eight Juno® Awards and have also earned nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum albums. Krall’s unique artistry transcends any single musical style and has made her one of the most recognizable artists of our time.
Diana Krall’s “Turn Up the Quiet” concert is part of the Ordway’s 2017-18 Concert Series. For tickets and more information, visit www.ordway.org.
