Suzanne Vega in Rzeszów

Suzanne Vega is a veteran of more than 20 years’ standing on the international music scene. Now the American folk-rocker is appearing at the “pre-opening” of Millenium Hall Square in Rzeszów July 4.

Vega started out in much the same way Bob Dylan had done a couple of decades earlier by working the folk club circuit in New York’s Greenwich Village. She released her first, self-titled album in 1985. Vega’s next album Solitude Standing (1987) propelled her to international stardom when “Luka,” a song about an abused child, became an unlikely hit single. Another track, the a capella “Tom’s Diner” became a hit in 1991 when British dance producers DNA put out a remixed version. The song has since been remixed more than 25 times. Vega’s subsequent offerings include Days of Open Hand (1990), 99.9 F° (1992), Nine Objects of Desire (1996), and Songs in Red and Gray (2001).

After a six-year sabbatical, Vega came back firing on all cylinders with Beauty & Crime (2007). The disk features 11 songs inspired by New York City, where the artist grew up and still lives. Beauty & Crime features Vega’s distinctive poetry set to lush orchestral arrangements counterposed against the quirky rhythms that have long characterized much of her work. Her songcraft is as polished as ever. The three-volume Close-Up Collection contains Vega’s complete oeuvre to date.

Vega will be supported in Rzeszów by Gienek Loska, who won the first Polish edition of the program X Factor, Michał Szpak, who came runner-up, and Ada Szulc, who came third.

The pre-opening of Millenium Hall Square is a foretaste of what we can expect when the largest commercial and entertainment center in the southeastern Podkarpacie province opens in October this year.
