Norah Jones coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater
Next year marks the 15th anniversary of Norah Jones' Come Away With Me, a sensation of an album that became one of the most unexpectedly successful LPs of this century.
Perhaps to mark the occasion -- and celebrate her new album Day Breaks, a return of sorts to the dreamy piano-jazz form of Come Away With Me -- Jones is going out on tour.
The singer and pianist will play Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater on March 7, the venue announced today. Tickets start at $75.50, and will go on sale Saturday. Click here for details.
This will be her first Clearwater gig since performing for a crowd of 15,000 at Coachman Park at the height of Norahmania in 2003, and a rare chance to catch her anywhere around town. She was scheduled to play the reinvigorated Lilith Fair before that got canceled in 2010, and ended up playing the Straz Center instead.
Don't know why she hasn't come here more often, but we'll take any show we can get.
