Landmark on Main has announced that tickets are now on sale for New York singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega’s scheduled concert on Friday, Dec. 15 at 8 p.m.
Vega will be making this stop on her upcoming tout that celebrates the 30th and 25th anniversaries respectively of her albums “Solitude Standing” and “99.9F” by performing both in full, as well as more tracks from her distinguished career that has seen her sell over 7 million albums worldwide.
Vega will perform tracks such as “Luka’,” “Tom’s Diner’,” and “Blood Makes Noise” from “Solitude Standing” and “99.9F.”
This concert marks a return to the Jeanne Rimsky stage for Vega, whose last highly successful Landmark concert was in May, 2015.
Having emerged as a leading figure in the folk-music revival of the early 1980s accompanying herself simply with an acoustic guitar, Vega released “Solitude Standing,” her second album, in 1987. The record would go on to chart at No. 2 in the UK and No. 11 in the U.S., going platinum and earning a nomination for Record of the Year at the Grammys.
Vega released “99.9F” in 1992, an album with a more electronic sound, which brought descriptions of “industrial folk” and “techno folk.” The record was certified gold, and also won a New York Music Award for Best Rock Album.
Looking back on these two pivotal albums in her career, Vega says, “These songs were written and recorded many years ago, but I still love playing them live, and have ever since the albums first came out. Now to celebrate the 30th anniversary of “Solitude Standing” and the 25th Anniversary of “99.9F,” my band and I will perform them both in their entirety for the very first time. Please join me for this very special concert!”
