Saturday 22nd November sees the international singer, songwriter and musician Christina Perri paying a visit to Manchester’s The Ritz with special guests as part of her ‘Head or Heart’ tour that is first visiting an extensive number of US and Canadian states before making its way over to Europe.
Hailing from Philadelphia, Perri’s debut single ‘Jar Of Hearts’ caught the attention of many when it was featured on the TV show ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ in 2010, leading to it gaining 14 platinum certifications that included sales of well over 3 million in the US. Christina consequently went on to releasing her debut album the year after that led to critics praising her voice and vocal work that is smoothly accentuated throughout the album. Perri’s second album ‘Head or Heart’ was released this year thus giving the same name to her tour that first stopped at New Jersey in July. As well as her own album tour, the singer is also appearing as a special guest with Demi Lovato and One Republic, who are also playing many dates around the US this summer.
The Ritz in Manchester was built in 1928 and originally kept as a haven for classical music lovers to gather in and dance. With the evolution of music and the club scene in Manchester, The Ritz underwent a £2 million refurbishment and is now one of the most iconic places in Manchester to attend live music and clubbing events. With club nights Roller Disco at The Ritz and Ultimate Power regularly making an appearance, together with notable performances from the like of R.E.M, The Smiths and The Arctic Monkeys, The Ritz has seen it’s fair share of stars through its doors. It is now the turn of Christina Perri to step into its spotlight and share with us her musical talents.
