Diana Krall live @ Laeiszhalle Hamburg, tonight

(DK during her concert @ the Santa Barbara Bowl; thx to Sergio Benitez)

Diana Krall performs tonight, at the Laeiszhalle Hamburg, the first in a new series of concerts of her "Quiet Nights World Tour 2009," dedicated to promote not only the "Quiet Nights" CD (Verve) as well as the "Live in Rio" (Eagle/ST2) DVD. Tomorrow early she leaves to Paris, for three sold-out nights at the Olympia (where the marvelous "Live in Paris" DVD was recorded). Diana will later return to Germany for concerts in Cologne (at the Lanxess Arena on October 18), Frankfurt (at the Alte Oper Frankfurt on Oct 20), and Munich (Philharmonie Hall, on November 11).
The impressive Laeiszhalle Hamburg was opened in 1908 with a grant by the well-known shipbuilder, Carl Heinrich Laeisz. This “neo-baroque” concert hall was known as the “Musikhalle” (music hall) for many decades and recently renamed after its benefactor. The Laeiszhalle Hamburg is one of the most beautiful concert halls in Germany, so you need to get your tickets to the DK concert at the Laeiszhalle Hamburg as soon as you can before they are gone! The Laeiszhalle hosts the Ensemble Resonanz and the Sounding Museum Hamburg, with the latter offering a collection of instruments to look at - and to even try out!
