Ute Lemper announces a retrospective live show for Southampton in April 2024

Ute Lemper has announced a short run of UK retrospective live shows for April 2024, including Turner Sims in Southampton on Thursday 25 April.

The acclaimed New York-based German chanteuse invites fans to join her as she takes a musical journey through her life and career at the shows, where she will perform songs from throughout her illustrious and celebrated 40 years in music, including selections from her acclaimed latest album, Time Traveler.

With a career spanning four decades, Lemper is one of the world’s most exciting and respected performers, having achieved success on the concert stage, on Broadway and the West End, and also as a much feted recording artiste.

Renowned for her unsurpassed interpretations of Brecht and Weill, she is regarded as the premier interpreter of their works and continues to record the chanson of Brel and Piaf, alongside multilingual material by Phillip Glass, Sondheim, Ferre and Piazzolla.

As well as her award-winning stint as Sally Bowles in the original Paris production of Cabaret, Lemper was the recipient of the coveted Olivier Award for her role in Kander and Ebb’s Chicago where she played the role of Velma Kelly.

Time Traveler, which is out now via Jazzhaus, is a retrospective of Lemper’s career, her favourite songs interspersed with some of her newest self-penned tracks, reflecting on her journey through time and life.

Ute Lemper will play the following UK live dates next month:

24 April – Bristol, St. George’s

25 April – Southampton, Turner Sims

26 April – Brighton, The Old Market

27 April – London, St Martin-In-The-Fields
