Marina And The Diamonds Reveal Upcoming US Tour

Chop Shop/Atlantic Records recording artist Marina And The Diamonds has announced plans for a new series of US live dates. The second leg of her “Burger Queen Tour” begins with April 7th, 8th, and 9th with a three-night-stand at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ Book & Stage (see dates below). The trek – which includes her first-ever performance at the annual Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California, slated for April 15th – will then traverse the country through a June 21st show at New York City’s Webster Hall.

The very next evening will see Marina And The Diamonds hitting the road as special guest on Katy Perry’s enormously successful “California Dreams Tour.” The North American dates begin June 22nd at Uncasville, Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun Arena and run through mid July.

The nom de musique of Marina Diamandis, Marina And The Diamonds made a dazzling chart entry last summer when her extraordinary debut album, “THE FAMILY JEWELS,” burst onto Billboard’s “Top New Artist Albums” chart at #2. The album also received ecstatic coverage in a wide array of US media outlets, including Interview, Fader, Spin, Nylon, Entertainment Weekly, and innumerable others. The New York Times hailed Diamandis’ superior songwriting, stating, “… she’s redefining songs about coming of age, and the aftermath, with bluntness and crafty intelligence.”

“’THE FAMILY JEWELS’… delivers alt-pop gems on which she (Marina Diamandis) emerges as the missing link between Lady Gaga and Florence + The Machine,” exclaimed People Magazine in their 3.5 out of 4 star review.

Marina And The Diamonds is currently hard at work recording her anticipated second album, having spent much of 2010 traveling the globe, with countless festival performances and headline tours to her credit. In addition to positive press attention, Marina was among the big winners at last year’s 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards, taking home the prestigious “Best UK & Ireland Act,” while also scoring a nomination as “Best European Act.”

Named the #2 artist on the BBC’s ever prescient “Sound of 2010” ranking, Diamandis more than lived up to the buzz to become one of the year’s brightest new stars. A gold-certified sensation in the UK, “THE FAMILY JEWELS” is easily among 2010’s most distinctive debuts. Songs like the first US single, “I Am Not A Robot” and the UK Top 20 hit, “Hollywood,” see Marina gleefully melding the theatrically lavish vocal and orchestral flourishes of Kate Bush with the wonderful pop eccentricity of everyone from Sparks to the Scissor Sisters.

Furthermore, tracks from “THE FAMILY JEWELS” have received an array of high-profile placements, including MTV’s World of Jenks and The Hills, American Movie Classics’ AMC Favorites, and Lifetime’s two-night movie event, Marry Me!
