The iconic, BRIT and Grammy Award-winning Joss Stone has announced her first ever headline show at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
Having performed at the prestigious venue several times over the years, this will be the first time Joss Stone will headline her own show at the Royal Albert Hall, where she will perform hits from across her career.
The show announcement comes following the recent success of the song ‘Golden’ which Joss Stone features on as part of TV presenter Lorraine Kelly’s ‘Change + Check’ campaign which aims to raise awareness about the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, which went to No.1 on the Official Singles Downloads Charts. It rounds off a busy year for Joss, who earlier this year debuted the West End musical ‘The Time Traveller’s Wife’, which she co-wrote the music and lyrics for with long-time collaborator Dave Stewart.
Joss will perform a song from ‘The Time Traveller’s Wife’ this coming weekend when she will appear on BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing: The Results on Sunday night. Last year, Joss Stone celebrated the 20th anniversary of her star-making, critically acclaimed debut album, The Soul Sessions, with a show at the London Palladium which the Daily Telegraph gave 5*’s and commented ‘… Stone’s grooves could have easily kept us moving all night long’. Since the release of The Soul Sessions in 2003, she has released nine studio albums which have sold over 15 million copies worldwide, including her second Mind Body & Soul which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2024, and upon its release made her the then youngest female artist to top the UK Album Charts. Stone has kept the company of musical royalty, performing alongside legendary artists such as James Brown, Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Sting, Van Morrison and Melissa Etheridge.
In addition, she has collaborated with and contributed to albums for many of the world's finest musicians, including Jeff Beck, Mick Jagger, and Damien Marley, and garnered over one billion streams in the US alone. Stone has been known to experiment with different styles in her own work as well, and her albums feature an exciting patchwork of various influences, creating a catalogue characterised by the fusion of her powerhouse soul vocals with reggae, world music, and hip-hop soundscapes. Tickets for Joss Stone at the London Royal Albert Hall will be available on Pre-Sale from Thursday 30th November at 10am, and general sale from Friday 1st December at 10am via Ticketmaster.co.uk
