A few days ago, Regina Spektor announced that she was coming back to Australia and New Zealand! Currently touring Spain, she released the statement below on her Facebook:
Hi everyone!!!! I’m very excited to announce that I will be coming back to New Zealand and Australia in December!!! Soon we will give the link with show dates and ticket updates(sign up for mailing list on reginaspektor.com if you want early notices) big cheers from Spain!!!(i love you Madrid!!!thank you!)regi
You have no idea how excited I am of this news. I love Spektor and she is coming in December, playing a show in Sydney the week before my birthday at the Sydney Opera House! This would be one of the better birthday presents I would receive, if any one of my friends want to be extra nice and buy me a ticket. 😉
But seriously, if anyone reading this is not familiar with Regina Spektor’s music, you should head to YouTube and search her name now. I discovered her through her album, “Begin To Hope”, which is a great record and has some stand-out tracks on it including my favourite ‘Samson’ – listen below!
Although she’s played there before, the Sydney Opera House would be the perfect venue for Spektor to play again. The acoustics in there would definitely complement her voice and piano-playing. Argh. I want to see her play live in concert. If I wasn’t saving for my upcoming holiday, I would totally go by myself. Seriously. She is awesome. Damn.
Check out her official tour dates below.
