Story by Jack Foley

GRAMMY winner Imogen Heap has announced a one off live date at The Royal Albert Hall in London on Friday, November 5, 2010.

Innovative, unique and multi talented, UK artist Imogen won a Grammy and made history at the 2010 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.

The singer /songwriter / producer received the prize for her work on her album Ellipse and became the first ever female artist to win the award for engineering her own album, the award title being: ‘Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical’.

In true ‘techie’ style Imogen surprised many with her customized ‘twitter’ dress she wore to the ceremony, complete with flashing messages and a handbag-sized TV connecting to her followers.

“I just thought it’d be nice for them to come with me so I’ve got a live Twitter feed from them,” she commented.

Dubbed the ‘Queen of the Digital Age’ Imogen was one of the first musical artists to truly embrace the Internet and even had her fans write a recent biog for her via twitter.

“It was just me there in my studio”, she explained. “All the way through making the record I had so much encouragement and love via Twitter or YouTube or MySpace from the fans and it really helped me to crack the whip in the studio.”

The Royal Albert Hall date is part of Imogen’s 2010 World Tour, which is visiting, North America, Scandanavia, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Luxenmberg, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Malaysia.

Ticket prices range from £20 to £40 and are on sale now.
