Diana announces U.S. Tour
Jazz powerhouse Diana Krall, who has been taking some time off recently to be with husband Elvis Costello and her twin boys, who were born last December, has announced that she will tour the U.S. this summer.
The trek will be split between performances by The Diana Krall Quartet and co-headlining shows with trumpet wunderkind Chris Botti and features several multi-night stands.
Krall will kick things off with a pair of shows June 8 and 9 at Yoshi's in Oakland, Calif., and is scheduled to play 38 concerts around the country in a impressive array of venues including the Mountain Winery in Saratoga, Calif. (June 20 and 21), the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Atlantic City (July 7), the Cape Cod Melody Tent in Hyannis, Mass. (July 13), Wolftrap at Filene Center in Vienna, Va. (July 16), Detroit's Fox Theater (July 21), Red Rocks Amphiteater in Morrison, Colo. (August 27) and the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Ill. (Sept 2).
Joining Krall at both her Las Vegas dates at the Hilton Hotel (June 14 - 17) and her Los Angeles dates at the Hollywood Bowl (August 17 and 18) will be The Clayton / Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, who were featured on her latest album, From This Moment On.
Moment, Krall's first new studio album of standards in five years, debuted at the top of the charts when it was released last fall and has been called some of her finest work yet by critics.
