Suzanne Vega brings her anniversary tour to Lincoln!
Suzanne Vega - Tuesday 26th June
Widely regarded as one of the most brilliant songwriters of her generation, Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early 1980s when, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, she sang what has been labeled contemporary folk or neo-folk songs of her own creation in Greenwich Village clubs. Since Suzanne’s critically acclaimed debut album 32 years ago she has sold over 7 million albums and has been nominated for 7 Grammy awards. She tours constantly and continues to play sold-out concerts in many of the world's best-known halls and arenas.
2017 marked the 30th anniversary of Suzanne Vega’s album "Solitude Standing", and the anniversary tour continues into this year. The album featured the surprise hit “Luka,” written from the perspective of an abused boy. "Luka" helped earn Vega three Grammy Nominations that year, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. The song resonates with so many people, that Suzanne still gets letters today thanking her for writing it. Solitude Standing went to #2 in the UK charts and #11 in the States.Suzanne Vega brings her anniversary tour to Lincoln!
