    Randy Newman to Tour Europe in February, March 2012

    Randy Newman has announced he will play three UK concerts as part of a European tour in February & March 2012 to coincide with the release of the CD/DVD album package Randy Newman: Live in London in November. The tour includes dates in Gateshead, Glasgow, and London, as well as cities in Belgium, Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Switzerland. Please see below for all of the currently scheduled tour dates. Most tickets are on sale now; tickets for Switzerland are on sale November 1 and the Netherlands November 4. For additional details and ticket links, head to nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Randy Newman: Live in London was recorded while Newman was touring in support of his acclaimed 2008 album Harps and Angels. He performed a special televised concert for the BBC at London’s intimate LSO St. Luke’s, accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra, conducted by Robert Ziegler. The 22-song set features material from throughout Newman’s four-decade long career, including some of his best-known songs like "Short People," "Louisiana 1927," and "I Think It’s Going to Rain Today," as well as newer songs like "A Few Words in Defense of My Country" and "Laugh and Be Happy."

    Earlier this year the second volume in The Randy Newman Songbook series, in which the songwriter takes a fresh look at his work in new solo recordings, was released. The Daily Telegraph called the album "An invigorating celebration of the joys of great songwriting and proof of the power of one man and his piano." The Independent declared, "Newman never sounds more quintessentially Newman than when experienced, as here, alone at the piano, with the lyrical intricacies and ironies of his songs dependent on just his laconic delivery and trenchant accompaniment for their effect."

    To pick up a copy of any of the albums in the Randy Newman Nonesuch catalog and to pre-order the Live in London CD/DVD, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the music starting release day.
