In the past couple of months, Ira Losco has been nothing short of unstoppable, having released a brand new studio album entitled 'The Fire' which peaked at number #1 for several weeks on iTunes as well as co-hosting the Malta Eurovision Song Contest alongside Gianluca Bezzina. Well, the tone has been set for her first concert of the year, that being on the 30th May. Ira Losco will be joined by a ten-piece band and several guests, performing some of her greatest hits under the name 'An Evening with Ira Losco and Friends'.
"I am excited about this concert, the best part about writing an album, is what follows...performing it. The beauty of being able to creatively direct my concert is that I see my body of work in a completely different light." said an enthusiastic Ira Losco. Many will remember Ira Losco's sold out "Unplugged Concert” at the Hilton which was also captured in her DVD release. Numerous concerts, including those outside our shores, have confirmed Ira Losco’s strength within the realm of her Live performances and this event will promise nothing short of that.
Ira will not only be performing songs from 'The Fire' though with such an extensive repertoire at her disposal. In the meantime; Gianluca Bezzina, Ivan Grech of Winter Moods, Alex Alden, Dana McKeon and the internationally acclaimed Irene Fargo are amongst the guests confirmed for the show. The female singer/songwriter is ready to perform to the masses who will be present at this concert, aiming to promote upcoming local talent, succeeding abroad with the likes of Alex and Dana flying in specifically for this show from The Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
“I wanted to have a mix of different guests where I can stretch my boundaries. Both Alex and Dana for example are 2 female artists whom I consider as hard working artists. I’m also a fan of their work and I genuinely want to support what they do. Every performance with my guests is going to be special and a one-off experience.’ She added. We hope that you purchased tickets to this event considering that Jagged House revealed that the show is sold out.
