Diva Down: Anastacia back in the UK
The lady with the most distinctive voice in pop music is back. Fresh off the back of the release of her critically acclaimed album ‘Heavy Rotation’, Anastacia is set to tour the UK and Europe this summer.
With over 14 million album sales in Europe alone, in excess of 225 Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum discs, countless awards (from MTV to Marie-Claire awards), and a record-breaking chart history to her name, Anastacia is not only one of the biggest selling artists of this decade, but also one of the biggest names in today’s music industry.
This tour will be the first time Anastacia has hit the road since 2005. Aside from featuring songs from ‘Heavy Rotation’ Anastacia will also be performing favourites such as ‘I’m Outta Love’, ‘Left Outside Alone’ and ‘One Day in Your Life’ from previous albums ‘Not That Kind’, ‘Freak of Nature’, and ‘Anastacia’. The tour is being directed by Kim Gavin, the Creative Director and Producer of all live events for Take That, (including their forthcoming Stadium tour), the 2007 Concert For Diana and the 2007/2008 Viva La Diva Tour with Darcey Bussell and Katherine Jenkins.
Anastacia will begin the UK leg of her pan-European tour in London on 25th June, (see dates below). Prior to her arrival in the UK, Anastacia will be performing at the Women’s World Achievement Awards in Vienna on March 5th, where she is nominated for the award of ‘Woman of the Year’. Previous winners include Oprah Winfrey, Vivienne Westwood, Susan Sarandon and Whitney Houston amongst others.
