Her astonishing range, her spot-on intonation, her mastery of the stage, the way her tone wraps itself around your heart and won’t let go . . .
City Winery Chicago, 1200 W. Randolph Street, is proud to announce singer and composer Lisa Fischer – The Rolling Stones’ powerhouse backup vocalist since 1989 – headlines her own show with a full band for two shows, Monday, Dec. 8, 6:30pm and 9pm. Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, Oct. 17 at noon.
Featured in the 2013 movie Twenty Feet from Stardom, Fischer is renowned for her astonishing range. She has toured, recorded and made music with Luther Vandross, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, Beyonce, Dionne Warwick, Dolly Parton, Bobby McFerrin, Alicia Keyes, Lou Reed, Louie Vega, Aretha Franklin, John Scofield, George Benson, Laurie Anderson, Lee Ritenour, Jackie Evancho, Sting, Chris Botti and Nine Inch Nails. The YouTube version of her duet with Mick Jagger on “Gimme Shelter” has millions of hits.
In 1992, Fischer won a solo Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Performance for her hit single “How Can I Ease the Pain” in an unlikely tie with Patti LaBelle (on whose song, “Burnin’,” she also sang backup). For this solo tour, Fischer has put together a brand new band to explore some new territory.
All City Winery Chicago events are open to all ages and start at 8pm, unless noted.
