Beth Orton Announces Special Solo Acoustic Performances in the US

Beth Orton has just announced dates for a small string of special solo acoustic performances in the US.

If you happen to stumble across tickets for any of these concerts, grab them and hold onto them and do not under any circumstances consider selling them on ebay!

Beth announced the following tour dates on her myspace page yesterday:

"we are excited to announce a series of special solo acoustic dates coming this month! ... tickets will be on sale shortly, we wanted to give you advance notice.

Monday March 24th San Francisco at The Cowell Theatre Friday March 28th Los Angeles at the El Rey
Sunday March 30th Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Music Hall

Monday March 31st NYC at the Hiro Ballroom

I have enjoyed many Beth Orton concerts, one in particular stands out- The Garage in London circa 1999/2000 where Travis were the support act. The acoustic sections of Beth's show are I believe to be the best part. She is just great at captivating you with her fragile, harrowing vocals, they draw you in and make you listen. I had one of those reality check moments once standing in the crowd at the Brixton Academy in London with hundreds of people standing around me slurping pint after pint of lager out of plastic cups and standing still in a King Of The Hill sort of way (a few swaying) while Beth poured her heart out singing in a truly convincing heart felt way. Everyone seemed captivated and stood still and slurped now and again. Sometimes I guess music really moves us, that's why I'm typing right?

If you live near any of those gig locations, go and buy a ticket, seriously.
