Stacey Kent
  • West End

The internationally acclaimed, Grammy-nominated vocalist, Stacey Kent, returns to the UK for a very select number of 2018 dates, featuring music from her latest album 'I Know I Dream' (Sony Music/Okeh).

It's a big year ahead for acclaimed Grammy-nominated singer, Stacey Kent. With the release of her most ambitious project yet, her first orchestral album, and another worldwide tour, Stacey returns to Leicester Square Theatre with her 5-piece band, featuring songs from the new album, 'I Know I Dream'.

This beautiful collection of songs, includes American Standards, Bossa Nova classics, Chansons, as well as original songs and reprises of some of Stacey's most loved repertoire - including numbers co-written by Nobel prizewinner Kazuo Ishiguro, whose songwriting partnership with Stacey has formed an essential plank of her repertoire.

With career sales approaching 2 million albums, Stacey's 11th studio album, 'I Know I Dream', is a highlight not only for its breathtaking beauty but also for its assured expressiveness. The Album follows 'Tenderly' (2015), an intimate collaboration with Brazilian music master, Robert Menescal. Stacey's previous albums include, the Brazilian-flavored, 'The Changing Lights', (2013), 'Dreamer In Concert' (2011), recorded live in Paris at La Cigale, her all-French, 'Raconte-moi' (2010), and the Platinum-selling, Grammy nominated, 'Breakfast on the Morning Tram' (2007).

For Stacey, whose international touring schedule keeps her on the road for most of the year, her return to London provides a rare opportunity for UK fans see her 'live' in concert.

"She has charm to burn, a smile that could give you hope in February and sings like nobody's business" - The Wall Street Journal

"Devastatingly Stylish" - The Observer

"Stacey Kent has been quietly sitting on top of the world of jazz vocals, for many years" - Jamie Cullum

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
