Imelda May has announced her first UK tour in over three years - and one of the stops will be the iconic London Palladium!
Long celebrated by peers as one of the most sensational singers of contemporary music, Imelda May has made the album of her life. Produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett, the album was recorded in LA and features some of the most well renowned musicians in America with guest appearances by long-time supporters; guitar hero Jeff Beck & piano maestro Jools Holland.
Imelda’s life changed considerably in the run up to recording, and first single ‘Call Me’ is one chapter that needed to be covered. In the past she would sometimes “hide things in my songs and twist them around.” but this time the singer tells it exactly how it is.
Imelda May doesn’t just sound different, she actually looks physically different. “I always loved the Fifties rockabilly style but there was a point where I felt I was almost dressing up as Imelda May. It was as if I was getting into character for a gig. And I didn’t want to do that anymore. This is me. I’m so proud of this album and can’t wait to bring it out on the road to you”
Taking the biggest band line up she has ever toured, the shows promise to delight both old and new fans of Imelda’s music. Featuring members of her longtime band with some additional finest musicians in the UK, the new line up brings the wonderful new material and old favourites to full colour whilst also showcasing Imelda’s unique ability to evoke the purest of emotion using her voice as her sole instrument.
