Amazingly it’s been seven years since Katie Melua last hypnotized us with her voice and excellent songs. A good reason then to hope that concert life will be back to normal next year, as she has just been added to the line-up for next years KunstRasen Season in Bonn. 13 August is the date you need to add to your diary.
The Georgian singer divorced from motorcycle racer James Toseland earlier this year and put her experiences of the break on ‘Remind me to forget‘ which is the last track on her latest release simply titled ‘Album No. 8’. The album itself is an intelligently written (by Melua) light jazz affair, that features the Georgian Philharmonic Orchestra and is well worth getting hold of. Hopefully, you will then be able to sing along in August. All fingers and toes firmly crossed that this show takes place, ideally without the seating which I felt put a distance between performer and audience last time around. But let’s not get lost in details – first let’s hope that the show is possible!
