Corinne Bailey Rae Is Coming To The New Daisy

Posted by Holly Whitfield | July 28th 2016 9691 0

Attention music fans: Grammy Award-winning soul singer Corinne Bailey Rae is making her way to downtown Memphis.

The British singer is touring the U.S. to support her new album, The Heart Speaks In Whispers and she’ll perform at the New Daisy Theater on Sunday, August 14. I have two tickets to give away! Keep reading to find out how to win.

Here’s a video for “Been To The Moon” from Corinne Bailey Rae’s newest album.

Tickets are $25 – $28, doors open at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. The show’s opener is extra special because – and I’m really happy about this – Memphis’ own uber-talented singer Brennan Villines will get things started for Ms. Rae.

Check out Brennan’s work here:

If you want to win tickets, just leave a comment on this post and tell me who you’d take with you. I’ll do a random drawing at 11 a.m. on Monday morning, August 1 and email the winner right after that.

If you haven’t heard about the New Daisy’s Theater’s total remodel (really, remodel doesn’t do it justice) I urge you to check out the post The New New Daisy Theater on Beale Street. The place is seriously swanky now, with a world-class sound system that will be perfect for these two lovely vocalists. I think it’s the perfect show to try out the VIP areas.

Click here to buy your tickets to Corinne Bailey Rae at the New Daisy at 7 p.m. on August 14 or leave me a comment to enter to win.
