MULTI-PLATINUM INTERNATIONAL ARTIST ELISA ANNOUNCES 2019 UK TOUR NEWS
Following her recent sell-out European tour, multi-platinum International artist Elisa, announces two UK dates as part of her world tour. Presented by DMP, Academy Events and 432 by arrangement with ITB booking agency, the live dates include a headlining London show at internationally renowned Union Chapel on Tuesday 30th July, before heading to Edinburgh Festival Fringe on Friday 2nd August where Elisa will play at The Liquid Room.
The tour celebrates the release of upcoming brand-new music she will perform for the first time ever during her highly anticipated UK and European shows. Written entirely in English, the new body of work, will be available on all streaming platforms over the summer and follow up on last years international single Will We Be Strangers.
Steadily touring the UK and selling out shows over the years, including Londons KOKO in 2014 and Shepherds Bush Empire in 2017, as well as Manchesters Gorilla and The Academy in Dublin for the same tour - the incredible singer-songwriter - ended up selling out two special shows in one day at The Jazz Cafe last February
Audiences have recently proven that language and nationality shouldnt be a barrier when it comes to music, and Elisa has certainly redefined how Italian artists cross over to the international music scene. Accomplishing the unthinkable in the Italian music industry: a raw and credible artist, writing and singing entirely English and reaching the top of the album charts, as well as crossing over into the international music scene market - with albums released in several European countries, USA and Canada, SA and New Zealand - she is comfortable in both worlds.
Armed with a career spanning over twenty years, Elisa has collaborated with some of the most important international artists in the world; from Bjorks early producer and trip-hop creator Howie B, Katy Perry, No Doubt and Alanis Morissettes producer Glen Ballard, as well as writing and recording #1 single Teach Me Again, released with the Grammy Award-winning rock singer Tina Turner for the anthology film All the Invisible Children. Whilst Anohni formerly known as Antony Hegarty featured on Forgiveness, a single included in her #1 album Heart, which peaked at #34 on the Global Album Charts. Her collaboration with Ennio Morricone - featured on Quentin Tarantino's Oscar-winning movie Django Unchained and its soundtrack album ended up being pre-nominated for an Academy Award as Best Original Song. Her most recent duet with British songwriter Jack Savoretti, was the crowning of a long friendship, started when the acclaimed bluesy singer opened Elisas past Arena tours in Italy.
Her song Dancing topped the iTunes charts both in USA and Canada and ranked 25th in the Billboard Hot Singles Recurrent for the Year, with her 2008s album Dancing climbing to number 5 on Billboard's poll for Best Album of 2008, prompting Decca Records to release a special anthology album Steppin On Water, in USA and Canada.
During her career she has won numerous prestigious music awards both in Italy and internationally, her beguiling performance at Sanremo Festival won her the first prize, from there she went to win several MTV European Music Awards, she sung at the Winter Olympics Games closing ceremony in Salt Lake in the USA, as well as becoming an ambassador for Save the Children. Her most recent accolades include giving her voice to the Italian version of Baby Mine for Tim Burton's Dumbo and gracing the cover of Vanity Fair Italy.
