Maxine Linehan to Perform ONE: The Songs Of U2 at New York’s Legendary Feinstein’s/54 Below
Four Performances Only, September 15, October 13, November 4 and December 9
(New York, NY) International concert and recording artist Maxine Linehan will return to Broadway’s supper club Feinstein’s/54 Below (254 West 54th Street, Cellar) with her show ONE: The Songs of U2, at 9.30pm for four performances only, Friday, September 15th, Friday, October 13th, Saturday, November 4th and Saturday, December 9th.
“With the 30th Anniversary of U2’s historic Joshua Tree album, it is my absolute joy to return to their vast songbook with lyrical interpretations and orchestral arrangements of some of their greatest hits, along with their deep cuts,” said Linehan. “These are some of the most meaningful and heart-wrenching songs I’ve ever performed and I am thrilled to share them with the audiences at Feinstein’s/54 Below.”
Tickets range from $35 to $80 and can be purchased at 54Below.com, or by calling 646.476.3551. Doors open at 8.45 p.m. Please note, Feinstein’s/54 Below has a $25 food and beverage minimum.
Already considered the premiere interpreter of the U2 songbook, Linehan breaks new ground with a unique, lyrically driven orchestral show devoted to the work of this world-famous band. The extraordinary songs written by Bono and U2 find a new voice in a concert that holds to the beautiful melodies, while bringing the lyrics forward into a fresh light. Accompanied by piano, cello, violin, bass, and drums, Linehan will continue her mission of providing audiences with the unexpected experience of hearing U2’s famous songs as if for the first time – while staying true to the heart and soul of each time-honored hit.
Hailed by the New York Times as “fiercely talented,” Linehan‘s success on both sides of the Atlantic includes sold-out concerts at Paris’ famed Theatre du Chatelet, Lincoln Center, Town Hall, Feinstein’s/54 Below and cities across America. Her solo shows An American Journey, Beautiful Songs, and What Would Petula Do? have all garnered rave reviews and spun off critically acclaimed albums.
U2 are one of the world’s best-selling music artists of all time, having released 13 studio albums and selling more than 170 million records worldwide. They have won 22 Grammy Awards, more than any other band, and are ranked by Rolling Stone at number 22 on its list of the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time.”
ONE: THE SONGS OF U2 will be produced and directed by her longtime collaborator, Scott Siegel, who has produced, written, and directed shows for Michael Feinstein at Jazz at Lincoln Center and is, perhaps, best known as the creator/writer/director/host of Town Hall’s signature series, Broadway by the Year.
