We’ve been waiting for this announcement. This year’s Electronic Beats Festival in Cologne will be headlined by none other than Grace Jones. The Jamaican model, singer, actress and all-around diva is confirmed to perform one of her rare live shows on May 18 at E-Werk. It marks her first appearance in Germany in seven years as part of her Hurricane tour.
Jones’ first three albums, which launched her career as one of disco and post-disco’s most recognizable faces, were recently re-released as an elaborate boxset, along with a highly anticipated autobiography titled I’ll Never Write My Memoirs. You can read dance music historian Tim Lawrence’s recommendation of the boxset here and Bpitch Control-affiliated singer Mama’s glowing praise of I’ll Never Write My Memoirs here.
