The legend that is Ronnie Spector continues her love affair of the UK with 6 live dates in June including a first ever appearance at the Glastonbury Festival.
Ronnie arrives in support of her critically acclaimed (and Billboard Top 10) new album English Heart. Described by Classic Rock as “warm and beautiful”, and “a wonderful album of British invasion covers” by the FT, English Heart is her first full length album of new material since 2006 and her own personal love letter to 1960s Britain. The eleven tracks on English Heart comprise a collection of Ronnie’s hand–picked favourites including songs recorded by the Kinks (‘Tired Of Waiting’), The Dave Clark 5 (‘Because’), the Beatles (‘I’ll Follow The Sun’), Sandie Shaw (‘Girl Don’t Come’) and Gerry & the Pacemakers (‘Don’t Let The Sun Catch You Crying’).

Ronnie’s affection for the country dates back to January 1964 when she first toured the UK with the Ronettes who were supported by the Rolling Stones. A second tour in Sep ’64 saw the Ronettes joined by the Kinks and The Yardbirds with Eric Clapton. During those early tours Ronnie became close with a lot of the great UK artists – the trio of Ronnie, sister Estelle Bennett and cousin Nedra Talley had completely wowed the likes of the Beatles, the Stones, the Kinks and Dusty Springfield with their perfect pop singles, sassy live shows and their trademark slit skirts, stiletto-sharp mascara and sky-high hairdos. Everyone in show business wanted to meet and hang out with the Ronettes because they were simply the most self-assured and outrageously sexy of all the early girl groups, a reputation that remains unchallenged to this day.

A Ronnie Spector live show is an enthralling experience. The voice behind ‘Walking In The Rain’, ‘Be My Baby, ‘Baby I Love You’, ‘I Can hear Music’ and ‘You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory’ still melts the heartstrings and she commands the stage with all the charisma, style, confidence and personality that have made her one of the world’s most enduring and iconic female performers. At last year’s Ronnie Sings The Fabulous Ronettes shows, in its 5 star review the Guardian declared, “it’s hard to believe this extraordinary woman with a teenager’s physique and the audience hanging on her every word is 72.”
