In April Johnette Napolitano, the charismatic singer/songwriter/ founder of Concrete Blonde, will make her first visit to the UK in nearly a decade, performing a series of acoustic shows that will feature songs from her entire career and showcasing her incredible voice. 

Concrete Blonde came howling out the chute in 1986 and knocked out three classic albums by 1990: Concrete BlondeFree and Bloodletting. The latter begat the hit single “Joey” – a sobbing love song to a dying alcoholic – perfect rock balladry and here is the video for “Joey”

Napolitano was born in Hollywood – the belly of the beast – and her songs were (and remain) cinematic – feature films compressed into three-minute rock ‘n’ roll: “Still In Hollywood,” “God Is A Bullet,” “True.” Walking In LondonMexican Moon, and a collaboration with Chicano punk-rockers Los Illegals followed. “Ghost Of A Texas Ladies Man” and “Heal It Up” – among others — hail from that period. She is also one of the great song interpreters of our time, as proven by the way she turned James Brown’s “It’s A Man’s World” , Leonard Cohen’s “Everybody Knows” and Coldplay’s “The Scientist” into Johnette songs.

The 21st Century brought the gorgeous, solo album Scarred, various Concrete Blonde reunions and her book Rough Mix – a collection of short stories, lyrics and drawings. She’s now touring on her own – just an acoustic guitar and her songs, passages read from Rough Mix against projected backdrops of original and found art – and that voice.

JOHNETTE comments, “I’m looking forward to finally get back to the UK and seeing a lot of old friends”.

 This will be a long awaited chance for UK fans to see a truly inspiring artist deliver heartfelt versions of some amazing songs in an intimate environment. Something not to be missed.

MICK FLANNERY will be support on the dates. https://www.facebook.com/mick.flannery.musician
