From a press release:
Five-time Grammy Award-winning jazz pianist and world renowned singer Diana Krall announced U.S. dates for the fall leg of her “Wallflower World Tour,” which includes only one stop in Pennsylvania – at the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre) on Nov. 26 at 8 p.m.

Krall’s 26-city tour also includes stops at some of the most prestigious venues across the country, including the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, and the Beacon Theatre in New York. Her latest U.S. tour is in support of her new album “Wallflower,” which will be released on Verve Records on Oct. 21.
Produced by 16-time Grammy Award-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 in her early years, as well as an unreleased composition from Paul McCartney (“If I Take You Home Tonight”). Pre-order “Wallflower” here.
The “Wallflower World Tour” will feature Krall performing pop classics such as The Mamas and the Papas’ “California Dreamin’,” the Eagles’ “Desperado,” and Bob Dylan’s “Wallflower,” which inspired the album’s title track, among others.
She will be accompanied on tour by Anthony Wilson (guitar), Dennis Crouch (bass), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Karriem Riggins (drums), and Patrick Warren (Keyboards).
Krall recently headlined The Montreal International Jazz Festival, performing to over 100,000 of her most loyal fans. She 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 Grammy Awards, eight Juno Awards, and has also earned nine gold, three platinum, and seven multi-platinum albums.
