Diana Krall Kicks Off Final Leg Of ''Smoldering'' ''Glad Rag Doll'' World Tour

Diana Krall's final ten dates of her adventurous and lauded "Glad Rag Doll" World Tour - a swing-around-the-globe marathon of 109 shows since October, 2012 that has garnered some of the best reviews of her career - begin next month.

The concerts will feature material from Krall's "Glad Rag Doll" album, songs mostly learned from her father's collection of early 20th century 78 records. On opening night of the most recent leg of the tour this fall, the Orange County Register wrote of Krall's risk-taking approach: "She may be mixing things up, but she's exactly where she should be." Of other dates, the Philadelphia Inquirer called Krall's voice "smoldering, " the Seattle Times said her show was "breathtaking" and the St. Louis Post Dispatch called the musician "truly impressive" and the night an "exhilarating show - perhaps the best in St. Louis this year."

Krall will be joined by Aram Bajakian (guitar), Dennis Crouch (bass), Stuart Duncan (fiddle/guitars), Karriem Riggins (drums) and Patrick Warren (keyboards).
