It feels as if it was only yesterday that Lucy Rose set foot in Southeast Asia for an intimate ethereal evening.
But fans, you’re about to get closer as the indie folk nymph returns in less than a year with Cinema Tour 2017. Rose will be playing Manila’s 19 East on Saturday, September 16 (with Ben&Ben supporting) and Singapore’s The Projector on Monday, September 18 and Tuesday, September 19.
The concerts will include a charming live performance with a backup band, as well as a screening of the Rose’s documentary about her debut tour in Latin America last year. The short documentary is a fly-on-the-wall account of a 33-show trek organised independently by the Brit singer with the help of her fans.
The Cinema Tour is in support of Lucy Rose’s forthcoming third album Something’s Changing, which is also inspired by the aforementioned 2016 tour. The album is due July 7.
“The documentary is a big part of this record and I think it explains why that trip was important and why it lead to me making the record that I’ve made,” said Rose. “The trip gave me confidence to do things like record in just one take and the songs came more easily.”
With an exciting new band for touring, Lucy Rose is as revitalised as it gets. This year for some dates she’ll tour alongside the documentary, returning to Latin America then India, Europe, the US and Asia.

Update (Jun 13): Having sold out the first show, Symmetry Entertainment today announced a second Singapore show on Tuesday, September 19 at the Projector. Tickets are now available through Peatix for SGD50.
