The fantastic Diana Krall is back to Budapest Arena
on May 21, 2023!
Diana Krall is the only one jazz singer to have eight albums debut at the top of the Billboard Jazz Albums chart. To date, her albums have garnered two Grammy® Awards, ten Juno® Awards and have also earned nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum albums. Krall's unique artistry transcends any single musical style and has made her one of the most recognizable artists of our time. As The New York Times recently noted Krall possesses, “A voice at once cool and sultry, wielded with a rhythmic sophistication”
Born in Nanaimo, British Columbia which is outside of Vancouver, Krall grew up in the western part of Canada and began studying the piano when she was four years old. By the time she was 15, she was performing jazz locally and with the encouragement of her father, a stride pianist with a vast knowledge of such Twenties and Thirties keyboard masters as Fats Waller, James P. Johnson, and Earl Hines, she devoted herself to music. "I think Dad had every recording Fats Waller ever made," she says, "and I tried to learn as many as I could."
Krall was still a teenager when she was awarded a scholarship to the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. It was only 1993 when her debut album was released. In the following years she had further 3 albums, but her watershed moment came in 1999 with the release of When I Look in Your Eyes. The recording spent an unprecedented 52 weeks in the #1 position on Billboard's Jazz chart and went platinum in the U.S. and Canada. Krall's next album, The Look of Love, continued her international success and became a top ten seller on Billboard’s Top 200 Album charts. Since then she has released a string of recordings that have all reached the top of the charts around the world.
Diana Krall’s recordings have been included in several film soundtracks and she has expanded upon her role as a performer to include songwriting, producing and arranging and has brought her talents to collaborate with many other artists including Paul McCartney, Barbra Streisand and Tony Bennett. She tours extensively around the globe to sold out audiences, appearing at premiere jazz festivals and concert halls throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
After her triumphant success at Veszprem Fest, Diana Krall will be back to Budapest Arena for her 7th Hungarian show in next May. Tickets will be available first for the registered Live Nation members from 10am on October 12. General onsale begins at 10am on October 14 via www.livenation.hu and www.funcode.hu.
