Long awaited Annie Lennox Sings Tour is dazzling critics and fans accross North America

Less than a month into her solo tour, iconic artist Annie Lennox is already dazzling fans and critics alike on her current North American headlining tour, ‘Annie Lennox Sings.’ The rare, intimate theatre tour is only the 3rd solo outing of the singer’s career, and mixes both beloved classic hits and new material from Lennox’s just-released Arista Records album, Songs Of Mass Destruction.
 
Here’s a glimpse at what the critics are saying:

“Like the best gospel and soul music, it burrowed through pain in search of meaning, and transcendence. The cascading vocals of “Thorn in My Side,” the disco pulse of “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” and the Creole-streaked rhythm of “Ghost in my Machine” were positively celebratory.Lennox’s multi-octave alto remains a formidable instrument…”

“Annie Lennox has entered her 15-city, small theater tour armed with an impressive, rabble-rousing album, ‘Songs of Mass Destruction,’ and one of rock’s most powerful and distinct voices sounding great on the record…’Mass Destruction’ and its predecessor, ‘Bare,’ reveal Lennox’s enduring relevancy: She’s no ’80s act forced to reproduce a version of her video-self. She proved that with a new song, ‘Ghosts in My Machine,’ a soul-warming amalgamation of southern R&B and techno with a zydeco flourish.”
Daily Variety

“One thing [Annie Lennox] doesn’t have to worry about is whether her songs move people. She can see that for herself.”
New York Times
 
“The ardor with which the powerhouse singer’s fans greeted this rare tour stop was just what a legendary leading lady would expect… Lennox is one of pop’s most venerated singers, envied by aspiring prima donnas and zealously supported by her cult…. Her extraordinary alto somehow matched timelessness with urgency. Committing to every note, Lennox made each song a sacrifice, and each climax a cry of survival.” 
Los Angeles Times

“Ms. Lennox is such an expressive singer, able to dip into a rich lower register, then soar to a piercing high. She feels each lyric, singing it with potency and reverence. Within the space of the song, she’s in character…. With her force of personality, everybody will stand up and listen.”
Dallas Morning News

 “Opportunities to hear Annie Lennox sing live are not to be passed up if at all possible.…The Scottish singer – unquestionably among the greatest living voices, and one of the most soulful ever to emerge outside of R&B…received one rapturous ovation after another here. Not only do her vocals tend to overwhelm the spirit – her expertly controlled acrobatics and impassioned delivery can have the inspirational impact of primo Aretha Franklin – but the rarity of encountering such a powerful force only enriches its potency in person. In such a small space, it’s no wonder certain climaxes got some people to virtually leap from their seats.”
Orange County Register

 “…her energy and enthusiasm were extraordinary… And indeed, this crowd loved her, adored her, swooned for her every dramatic gesture.   It’s all about that voice — soul deep and so muscular it can pummel you or, just as easily, carry you away.”
Contra Costa Times

“Lennox put show stopping exclamation marks on the stomping choruses of songs like ‘Walking on Broken Glass’ and ‘Thorn in My Side.’  But it was the ballads that gave her soulful voice room to take flight, especially during the concert’s exquisite centerpiece, ‘Cold’…”
San Francisco Chronicle

“…the Scottish-born singer’s sold-out show at the Cadillac Palace Theatre was ultimately about the power of straightforward, unadorned and emotionally honest music — and the importance of soul over all of pop’s superficial trappings.”
