The 26-city tour is in support of her stunning new album Wallflower, which will be released on Verve Records on October 21.
Produced by 16-time Grammy-winning producer David Foster, Wallflower finds Krall breaking new ground with her interpretations of some of the greatest pop songs of all time. The album features popular classics from the late ’60s to present day that inspired Krall since her early years, as well as an unreleased composition from Paul McCartney ("If I Take You Home Tonight").
The “Wallflower World Tour” will feature Krall performing pop classics such as The Mamas and the Papas' "California Dreamin’ " and the Eagles' "Desperado," as well as Bob Dylan’s “Wallflower,” which inspired the album's title track, among others. Krall will be accompanied onstage by Anthony Wilson (guitar), Dennis Crouch (bass), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Karriem Riggins (drums) and Patrick Warren (keyboards).
Diana Krall recently headlined the Montreal International Jazz Festival, performing to over 100,000 of her most loyal fans. Diana Krall is the only jazz singer to have eight albums debut at the top of the Billboard Jazz Albums chart. To date, she has won five Grammys, eight Juno Awards and has also earned nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum albums. Her unique artistry transcends any single musical style and has made her one of the most recognizable artists of our time.
