Andy Allo Unfresh Summer Tour – Brussels, Amsterdam and Paris
Andy Allo ended her UnFresh Summer Tour in Europe with a brilliant performance at La Maroquineire in Paris. It was a short tour to promote her forthcoming album with remixes of her first cd ‘UnFresh’.
Also, Andy Allo has just been added to the North Sea Jazz Festival line-up on July 12th and will be an hour show starting at hour show starting at 21:30.
The shows all sold out very quickly, showing that the fans were very excited to see the singer/songwriter/musician perform her music. The last time Andy was touring in Europe was with Prince and the NPG.
The mini tour kicked off on Saturday, June 29 at the Couleur Café Festival in Brussels, where she performed a very funky set with a full band, including a 4 piece horn section. Andy sang songs from both UnFresh and Superconductor. A beautiful balance of both records that showcased her journey. She opened the concerts with the song 'When Stars Collide' and closed with the funky single from Superconductor titled, "People Pleaser". In between those songs anything was possible.
Nikka Costa invaded California last week for 2 shows in Southern California and 2 shows in Northern California and the funk was hot, sweaty, and nasty.
The San Francisco shows were straight fire as you would expect. The shows in San Juan Capistrano and Redondo Beach brought out some real music lovers with Nikka doing about a 95 minute set alone in Redondo Beach, playing a plethora of her back catalog sans "Push & Pull" and I'm not sure if it was played at her other shows.
