Suzanne Vega is returning to Brighton Dome celebrating and performing two of her classic albums, Solitude Standing & 99.9F° in full & more, including 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 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.
Audiences across the UK in September 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.
