Diana Krall brings Wallflower tour to Kelowna

Five-time Grammy award-winning jazz pianist and world renowned singer Diana Krall comes to Okanagan May 12

Five-time Grammy award-winning jazz pianist and world renowned singer Diana Krall has announced the Canadian leg of her Wallflower World Tour.

The 15-city tour will kick off in Edmonton, and will include performances with local symphony orchestras in select cities, including Kelowna at Prospera Place May 12.

Krall will perform material from her anticipated new album Wallflower, which will come out on Verve Records Feb. 3.

Produced by 16-time Grammy award-winning producer David Foster, Wallflower finds Krall breaking new ground with her interpretations of some of the greatest pop songs of all time.

The album features popular classics from the late ‘60s to present day that have inspired Krall since her early years, as well as an unreleased composition from Paul McCartney (If I Take You Home Tonight).

The Wallflower World Tour will feature Krall performing pop classics such as The Mamas and the Papas’ California Dreamin’, The Eagles’ Desperado, and Bob Dylan’s Wallflower, which inspired the upcoming album’s title track.

Krall will be accompanied onstage by Anthony Wilson (guitar), Dennis Crouch (bass), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Karriem Riggins (drums) and Patrick Warren (keyboards).

Tickets for Krall’s  Kelowna appearance go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. and range in price from $78 to $113.50. They are available online at www.selectyourtickets.com, call 250-762-5050, or in person at Prospera Place box office.
