Rickie Lee Jones, One Auckland Show
Showcasing Jones’ unique vocals and her extraordinary and celebrated song catalogue spanning nearly 35 years, audiences can expect a varied set list of musical offerings plucked from throughout her extensive career - such as Pirates, Chuck E’s In Love, We Belong Together and The Horses - moving with deft versatility across a wonderfully spirited patchwork of folk, rock, jazz, soul and pop.
The Grammy Award winning and multi-million selling Jones will be joined on stage by the incredible talents of Jeff Pevar on guitar, bass and keys, and Ed Willett on cello, for what is sure to be concerts of inspired musical genius that showcase her unique and creative performance style.
Last year Jones furnished fans with her latest studio album, the Ben Harper-produced covers album The Devil You Know, featuring sublime arrangements of beloved songs including Neil Young’s Only Love Can Break Your Heart, Van Morrison’s Comfort You, the Stones’ Sympathy For The Devil, plus one new ballad, Masterpiece written by Ben Harper.
Rickie Lee Jones was propelled into the global spotlight with the release of her now classic 1979 self-titled debut album. The album became a phenomenal multi-million selling hit, featuring the timeless Chuck E’s In Love, earning five Grammy nominations and winner of Best New Artist in 1980. Garnering two Rolling Stone magazine covers in just two years, Jones and her unique style became a cultural icon of the time.
Jones’ influential career has delivered more than 14 studio albums, among them Pirates, Girl At Her Volcano, Flying Cowboys, Pop Pop, Traffic From Paradise, It’s Like This which earned Jones an eighth Grammy nomination, Balm of Gilead and the current The Devil You Know.
