Elaine Paige lets the memory live again on tour and at London’s iconic Theatre Royal Drury Lane
March 29, 2016  //  By:   //  News  //  Comments are off

Elaine Paige has announced a 20 date series of concerts from October to December 2016, entitled ‘Stripped Back’, which will see her perform her favourite tracks, from an array of contemporary songwriters, with a small group of musicians in some of the UK’s most beautiful venues (detailed below). This follows Elaine’s last solo tour in 2014 which was a sell-out celebratory concert encompassing her incredible 50 year career and saw her say “farewell” to a full touring schedule.

“I’m so excited about this series of ‘weekend’ concerts. Having made the decision not to do a back to back tour again, this appealed to me not only because of the schedule, but as I’ve marked my 50 years on stage, this is going to allow me to do something completely different, a brand new show celebrating the contemporary songwriters I love such as Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Jim Webb, Burt Bacharach, Leonard Cohen, Sting, Elton John, Lennon & McCartney … the list goes on. Their music has been the soundtrack to all our lives, not just mine. And its the ideal opportunity to perform in an intimate way … I recently played the Royal Albert Hall with the 60 piece BBC Concert Orchestra … I’m doing these new shows ‘Stripped Back!” – Elaine Paige
