Harry Connick, Jr. announces fall tour
Supporting recent critically acclaimed album relase, “Every Man Should Know”
Multi-talented musician, singer, songwriter’s latest CD features twelve new original songs
(July 31, 2013) – Harry Connick, Jr. announced today a Fall concert tour along with additional summer tour dates in San Francisco and Tanglewood, MA on the heels of a critically acclaimed album release. Connick exposes his feelings as never before on his 29th album release, “Every Man Should Know” which contains twelve original songs for which Connick wrote music, lyrics and arrangements.
“No rules, no limits,” is how the multi-talented artist describes the songs in his liner notes for the new collection. “I don’t recall ever reaching quite as deeply – or confidently – into my inhibition pool.”
The range of the CDs songs is vast, touching upon love and loss, celebration and sorrow, tragedy and hope. With “Every Man Should Know,” Harry Connick, Jr. triumphs once again, with a depth of feeling that signals another milestone for one of the music world’s most multi-faceted artists. Critics have been quick to agree with People Magazine calling it “impressive,” and the Boston Globe saying the album features “his most thoughtful and personal songs to date” and says its “an album that every Harry Connick Jr fan should own.” The Chicago Tribune said, “Harry Connick Jr achieves a personal best” about his summer concert in Chicago. The Fall tour will begin this October and dates are listed below. More information can be found at www.harryconnickjr.com.
A limited number of VIP after-show meet and greet passes will be available for purchase at each of these shows. All proceeds from these passes will be donated to the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music at the New Orleans Musicians’ Village. To purchase passes, please email www.ellismarsaliscenter.org..
