The three date mini tour tours at Guildford on Saturday 18th August, taking in Bexhill on Sunday 19th August, finishing at Leeds on Tuesday 21st August.

Vega will perform tracks such as Luka, Tom’s Diner, and Blood Makes Noise from Solitude Standing and 99.9FTom’s Diner is often referred to as the Mother of the MP3, as it lays claim to the first track to use the pioneering audio compression.

Having emerged as a leading figure in the folk-music revival of the early 1980s accompanying herself simply with an acoustic guitar, Vega released her ‘Solitude Standing’, her second album, in 1987. The record would go on to chart at number 2 in the UK and number 11 in the USA, going platinum and earning a nomination for Record of the Year at the Grammys in the process.

Always pushing the boundaries of music both lyrically and sonically, Vega released ’99.9F’ in 1992, and album with a more electronic sound, which brought descriptions of ‘industrial folk’ and ‘techno folk’. The record was certified gold, and also won a New York Music Award for Best Rock Album.

On looking back on these two pivotal albums in her career, Suzanne Vega says: “These songs were written and recorded many years ago, but I still love playing them live, and have ever since the albums first came out. Now to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Solitude Standing and the 25th Anniversary of 99.9F, my band and I will perform them both in their entirety for the very first time. Please join me for this very special concert!”

Audiences across the UK in August can look forward to experiencing Vega’s distinctive and cutting vocals, matched with her unique ability as a storyteller looking back on the songs that encapsulate an iconic career.
