Christine and the Queens: Live in London

A London show tonight by Christine and the Queens, with a sold-out show at Koko by France's number one act.

Christine's album Chaleur Humaine finally got a proper UK release in February, she remarked on it as something of a full circle, having gone from an artist who found acceptance in London's clubs and who subsequently developed into one of France's most significant artists in recent years, to returning triumphantly to a London venue to perform live.

It's no surprise that she's playing in the UK, having already made a significant impression in North America with live dates and appearances. She's been met with critical acclaim and recognition from other artists. Her appeal should easily go beyond the traditional francophone audience, and hopefully she'll get the attention she deserves in the UK.

She's off to North America next month, with shows at Coachella and gigs in LA, Boston and New York.

Christine and the Queens have another date in Londond scheduled at the Roundhouse on May 3. Hopefully we'll see more of her in the UK before too long.
