Lisa Fischer and Grand Baton  

(USA)

“A phenomenal powerhouse” New York Times

The huge voice that has backed the Rolling Stones for 25 years and belted out that iconic chorus on Gimme Shelter, Lisa Fischer is now stepping into the spotlight.  Capable of raw power and breathtaking subtlety, she mesmerised movie-goers in the Academy Award-winning documentary Twenty Feet from Stardom, which told the story of her journey as backing vocalist to artists like Luther Vandross, Chaka Khan and Tina Turner.

This intimate, one-night-only show brings Lisa together with her new band in a fusion of African and Caribbean rhythms, gospel, soul and rock. A humble and highly inventive performer, this Grammy Award-winning artist heads to Wellington hot off a world tour taking in the Newport and Monterey Jazz Festivals and the legendary Hollywood Bowl.

Partnered by Wellington City Council.
