Suzanne Vega performing Solitude Standing &
99.9F In Full at Landmark on Main Street
Dec 15th | 8 PM
Legendary New York singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega celebrates the 30th and 25th anniversaries respectively of her albums Solitude Standing and 99.9F by performing both in full, as well as more tracks from throughout a distinguished career that has seen her sell over 7 million albums worldwide.
Vega will perform tracks such as 'Luka', 'Tom's Diner', and 'Blood Makes Noise' from Solitude Standing and 99.9F.
Having emerged as a leading figure in the folk-music revival of the early 1980s accompanying herself simply with an acoustic guitar, Vega released Solitude Standing, her second album, in 1987. The record would go platinum and earn 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, an 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!"
