Labelle Bring 'Back To Now' To The Nokia Theatre

Three decades after the release of their last album, the formidable group Labelle (Sarah Dash, Nona Hendryx and Patti LaBelle) is back in full form with their new album 'Back To Now' and national tour. When the band takes the stage at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on 1.29.09, they'll mix new songs with classics for an unforgettable show with "too many thrilling vocal performances to count" (Newark Star Ledger, 12.22.08)

The iconic band recently kicked-off their tour in New York City, and proved that audiences will see the high-caliber theatrics and performances that defined Labelle's live shows in the seventies. The New York Times notes that Labelle "still dresses to impress, " adding that for the band, "Each song was its own drama, building slowly or charging into a groove, well-plotted with an improvisatory flourish. The three women were clearly exulting in their partnership and having fun" (12.22.08).
