Heather Nova Intimate Evening Tour 2006 ended

With the concert in Tongeren, Heather Nova ended her Intimate Evening Tour 2006 through Switzerland, Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, and United Kingdom. She gave ten concerts in less than two weeks, and all of them were sold out, so it was a big success.

The shows were the most unique Heather Nova concerts since many years. In contrast to her previous, mostly rocking tours, she played this time a much more intimate set, accompanied only by violinist Fiona Pears from New Zealand and by London based pianist Ian Tilley, also by her guitars and pedals. Fiona was allowed to play four of her own songs each night, Heather read a poem, Heather did solo parts, and she played also together with Fiona and Ian.

The setlist was very widely spread. From her first EP, to the latest album, we could hear songs from the last 16 years. Most notably were songs like New Love, These Walls, Mothertongue, Ear To The Ground, Heal, Water From Wine, Grow Young, Like A Hurricane, and especially Sugar acoustic, where she fulfilled a wish of many Heather Nova fans. But even the other songs have been played like never before, in this unique arrangement with violin and piano. All this was so special and new even for Heather, that she had no problems to admit being quite nervous on stage this time. But Heather did a great job, and nothing bad happened.

At the concerts, you could buy a "the sorrowjoy" CD with her poems mixed with ambient music (unfortunately except in Zurich). Surely, those CD's will be a collector's item, due to the fact that the CD was only pressed for being sold on this tour, and you cannot buy it in stores.

A lot of Heather fans made it to at least one concert, many of them visited even more, up to all ten gigs! We hope you all enjoyed the gigs and we thank our forum members very much for contributing so many impressions of that tour.

Many thanks to Heather, Fiona, Ian, and all people who helped her doing this tour, making everything so well.

Heather ended the tour with Sugar, like she ended last years' Redbird Tour 2005. But, in Antwerp in last October, she played it with full band. Now, in Tongeren, she played it acoustic style.

We hope you liked our regular updates during the tour. Maybe we will see you at the upcoming Heather gigs in summer, too?
