Grace Jones The Hurricane Tour. London 27 - 28 January 2009 at The Roundhouse

She is one of the most recognisable figures from the last twenty years - as a music artist, model and actress - boasting film credits that include James Bond’s A View To A Kill, an impressive modelling career as well as being Andy Warhol's muse and making excellent music including I’ve Seen That Face Before and Pull Up To My Bumper.

Enigmatic Grace, who this month releases her first studio album in nearly twenty years, has been enjoying a stunning return. Hurricane, the new LP co-produced by Grace herself along with Ivor Guest, has seen Ms Jones collaborate with old friends Sly and Robbie as well as the likes of Brian Eno. This year she was crowned Q Awards Idol winner and seems to have re-entered the public consciousness that began with a sensational show at this year’s Meltdown Festival which is now widely regarded as one of the live music moments of this year.

The show will see Grace perform tracks from Hurricane, which has firmly positioned Ms Jones back on the music-scape. With jaw dropping and spine tingling hooks and rhythms, Hurricane projects Grace at her most enigmatic.
