Suzanne Vega Adds October Barbican Show

Following a hugely successful summer UK tour, pioneering American singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega returns for a very special anniversary show on October 16th at London's Barbican, celebrating 25 years since the release of the universally renowned Solitude Standing album.

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 Tunstall, Tracy Chapman, and Alanis Morissette.

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. Her next offering of the series - Volume 4: Songs of Family follows in September 2012.
