Karen O announces two intimate London headline shows (2014)
Story by Jack Foley
TO mark the release of her debut solo album Crush Songs, Karen O will play several exclusive shows in New York, Los Angeles, London and Berlin this autumn.
The intimate dates include two nights at London’s Bush Hall in October. Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 15 at 9am GMT for London. Crush Songs is out on September 8 on Cult Records.
Of the live dates, O says: “I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be performing Crush Songs to some very intimate audiences. If you’re in the mood for love please come join my crush odyssey at these limited engagements. I apologize in advance that these shows are so few but I guess that makes them all the more special if you can make it SO don’t miss out! LUV KO.”

The events will take place at secret locations in homes and apartments where hosts will play the deluxe edition of Crush Songs, featuring O’s own words and artwork, for private audiences in each city.
