Pop/Jazz Star Basia's It's That Girl Again Tour at The Grove of Anaheim
* Additional fees apply.
The last date listed for Basia's - It's That Girl Again Tour was Saturday November 13, 2010 / 8:30pm.
The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.Shawn Colvin & Steve Earle: Songs & Stories, Together On Stage info • Jul 14 2014 star this tip starred

The show started on time and Basia was as great as ever. She started the show with songs from her latest cd "It's That Girl Again" (which I bought when it first came out and unfortunately did not like as much as her older cds). Anyways, we really enjoyed the show especially when she sang her more popular older songs (Miles Away, Promises, Jobim's Waters of March etc) She was even gracious enough to do 2 more songs as encore. Overall, I would recommend this show to all her fans and to those who are into Bossa Nova and Pop Jazz. My only disappointment though was she didn't do any songs from her Matt Bianco cds. Hopefully she won't wait for another 10 years to do a concert here in the US.
Btw, the tickets that were sold by Goldstar were the most inexpensive ones, but surprise of surprises we actually got very good seating! Thanks again Goldstar!

I have been waiting for 23 years to see Basia and it was well worth the wait. Her vocals and her band were tight and offered many audio memories of the late 80's, early 90's. She was extremely charming on stage and gave all a good hearted evening...continued
Quotes & Highlights
Visit Basia’s website for more information and song samples.
Basia and her collaborator Danny White have always drawn from timeless influences: the rhythms and styles of Latin music, the sound of classic American soul and R&B, and the polish of ’50s and ’60s jazz; yet the sound is undeniably fresh. There is nothing about It’s That Girl Again that is stuck in the past; rather it presses forward, building upon their many accomplishments during the course of their career. The songs on It’s That Girl Again reprise Basia’s global pop sound, fusing stick-in-your-head-for-days melodies with complex arrangements that don’t overshadow the heartfelt lyrics or stunning instrumentation. Each song is a dedication to someone in Basia’s life, though her narratives describe characters many can relate to. The musical backing is inspired and inventive, taking the listener to surprising places.
