Marianne Faithfull on Tour

Some of you enjoyed Marianne Faithfull during her concerts this summer, like the one at Sheperd's Bush Empire, during the Stones concert series at Wembley in July. Now she is on to a new project, touring clubs in Europe with "An Evening In The Weimar Republic", singing the songs of Kurt Weill, featuring Paul Trueblood on the piano.

For a review of the (pre-tour) Berlin show see UK magazine MOJO Feb. 96 issue page 93.

This is the set list from the Berlin concert:

  • Alabama Song
  • Pirate Jenny
  • Ballad of Sexual Dependency
  • Bolevard Of Broken Dreams
  • Complainte de la Seine
  • What Become of the Solder's Wife
  • Falling In Love Again
  • Mack The Knife
  • Don't Smoke In Bed
  • Suraboya Johhny
  • Don't Forget Me
  • She
  • Mack the Knife
  • Solomon Song
  • She Moved Through The Fair.

    These are the tour dates so far:

    March 1996:
    6, 7: Thessalonika - Milos Club
    8, 9: Athens - Rodon Club
    11: Naples *

    After IORR 25 was out, I got the then unconfirmed dates confirmed as shown above (*) in Italy.

    This is a different concept from previous Marianne shows, just herself and Paul Trueblood on piano; no other backing. I will be in Oslo on March 22, to check it out. If any of you go to any of the early shows, please email! Thanks!
