Lisa Marie Presley to hit Boston on upcoming tour

, Staff

Lisa Marie Presley has revealed plans to return to the road for her first tour in five years as she promotes her new album, Storm and Grace. The singer-songwriter and daughter of icon Elvis Presley will make her way to Massachusetts for a performance at the Wilbur Theater in the heart of downtown Boston’s Theater District on Saturday, June 16. Tickets for the show are on sale through Ticketmaster for $29.

Storm and Grace, Presley’s third studio effort and follow-up to 2005’s Now What, was released last month. Produced by 12-time Grammy Award-winner T Bone Burnett (Robert Plant, John Mellencamp), Storm and Grace was recorded at The Village in Los Angeles. The video for lead single “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” is streaming below.

“Just over two years ago, I went to England to attempt to write another record after finding myself in a considerably disheartened and uninspired state creatively,” explained Presley in a press release. “Over an eight-month period, I wrote 30 songs. I was fortunate to be able to write with some incredible artists and singers such as Richard Hawley (from Pulp), Ed Harcourt, Sacha Skarbek and Fran Healy (from Travis), to name a few. Nothing was planned or contrived in any way and out of it came a very organic record that was always inside of me and that I am incredibly proud of. It was a dream come true and such an honor when T Bone liked the songs and produced and played on the record.”

“When songs from Lisa Marie Presley showed up at my door, I was curious,” added Burnett. “I wondered what the daughter of an American revolutionary music artist had to say. What I heard was honest, raw, unaffected and soulful. I thought her father would be proud of her. The more I listened to the songs, the deeper an artist I found her to be. Listening beyond the media static, Lisa Marie Presley is a Southern American folk music artist of great value.”
