Katie Melua to Pare it Down with 'Simplified' Tour

On the heels of arguably her finest album to date, Ketevan, singer/songwriter Katie Melua is set to embark upon what is being billed as the “Simplified” tour, starting March 29th in Esbjerg, Denmark. Accompanied only by bassist Tim Harries and keyboardist Mark Edwards, Melua will perform bare-bones versions of material from the new album along with selections spanning her entire catalog to date.

“I know this will test me as a musician like never before,” said Melua in a recent statement, “but I love the purity and nakedness of performing with hardly any accompaniment. I have always included one or two stripped down songs in my previous gigs but never a whole tour like this. There is nothing to hide behind.”
