FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Norwegian Pop Singer MARIT LARSEN to Tour China in September-October
With the support of Norway at Expo, the Royal Norwegian Consulate General in Shanghai, the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Beijing and Rikskonsertene (Concerts Norway), YGTwo Productions is proud to announce that internationally-renowned recording artist Marit Larsen will perform a limited number of concerts in China. Between Sept 29 and Oct 2, Larsen and her band will perform in a variety of cities and settings around the country. The highlight of this short tour will surely be the band’s performance at MAO LIVEHOUSE in Shanghai, one of the newest and best live music venues in the country, on THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 30.
Marit Larsen first shot to fame as half of the pop sensation M2M, who, Chinese fans are already well aware, recorded Mandarin versions of several of their many hit songs. Marit Larsen’s post-M2M career has brought her wide praise for two albums that have solidified her status as a recording artist in her own right. In 2009, one of Norway’s largest newspapers, VG, called Marit’s song “Under the Surface” the best song of the decade; fourth place on the same list was another Larsen tune: “If a Song Could Get Me You”. The newspaper called her debut album Under the Surface the second-best album of the decade.
Shanghai audiences’ chance to see Marit in a relatively intimate environment comes on Thursday September 30 at the venerable MAO LIVEHOUSE. Tickets are RMB120 at the door of RMB100 in advance.
Marit also performs at Europe Square, Shanghai Expo on Wed Sept 29 and Chang Jiang Midi Festival on Fri Oct 1. Other performances are TBA.
