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:
These are the tour dates so far:
March 1996: 6, 7: Thessalonika - Milos Club 8, 9: Athens - Rodon Club 11: Naples * 12: Florence * 13: Milan * 15: Zaragoza - Sala Multiusos 16: Murcia - Auditorium 18: Luzerne - Union Theatre 19: Bern - Bierhubeli 20: Vienna - Metropol 22: Oslo - Rockefeller 23: Helsinki - Student House 24: Stockholm - Gino 26, 27: London - Jazz Cafe.
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!
