Grace Jones announces new tour...
The legend that is Grace Jones has announced a UK tour in January 2009.
The seven date extravaganza is scheduled to start at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall on January 19th, will travel across the country, before finishing with two nights at London’s Roundhouse on January 27th and 28th.
As anyone who saw Grace at last summer's Meltdown Festival will testify, she iz like well fierce (seriously!). Her charisma blows most teeny-boppery pop starlets right back to school.
