Regina Spektor announces Providence show
Regina Spektor will return to the road this fall as she continues to tour in support of her new album, What We Saw From The Cheap Seats. The Russian-American singer-songwriter and pianist will make her way to Rhode Island for a performance at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Providence on Friday, October 5. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $39.50 to $49.50, are on sale through the venue’s box office and website. Opening the show will be her husband Jack Dishel’s band Only Son.
What We Saw From The Cheap Seats, Spektor’s sixth studio album and follow-up to 2009′s Far, debuted at #3 on the Billboard 2000 after its release in May. Spektor wrote each of the 11 tracks on the album and fleshed out its instrumentation with help from co-producer Mike Elizondo (Eminem, Fiona Apple). What We Saw From The Cheap Seats was recorded over an eight week period last summer in Los Angeles. It features singles “All The Rowboats” and “Don’t Leave Me (Ne me quitte pas)”. The second is a new version of “Ne me quitte pas”, a song originally from Spektor’s 2002 album Songs.
