Ciao Walter,

I'm Mark Gartenberg and am a member of the Italian Language
MeetUp group in New York.  You may remember I contacted your
group when Carmen Consoli made her Seattle concert debut last
September.

This time I wanted to let you and your members know that
Italian vocal superstar, and 2001 San Remo Festival winner, 
ELISA ( http://www.myspace.com/elisaUS ) will be making her
Seattle concert debut on Monday November 24, 2008 at The Triple
Door.  Information on this show as well as on Elisa���s complete
17 date North American debut tour are below.  I hope you will
join us once again to welcome another exceptional Italian
artist, Elisa, to Settle.

Grazie 1000!

Mark

ITALIAN VOCAL SUPERSTAR ELISA POISED TO LAUNCH FIRST-EVER U.S.
TOUR THIS FALL IN SUPPORT OF HER DEBUT NORTH AMERICAN ALBUM
DANCING, RELEASED JULY 15 ON SUGAR/UNIVERSAL

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CLIP OF ALBUM���S TITLE TRACK HAS
YIELDED 1 MILLION+ YOUTUBE VIEWS

Italian-born singer-songwriter Elisa, a multi-platinum, award-
winning star in her native country, will launch her first tour
of the United States and Canada on October 29. As acclaimed
internationally for her powerful live performances as for her
inspired, emotionally direct pop-rock recordings, Elisa has
appeared on various world stages with music legends including
Andrea Bocelli, Luciano Pavarotti and Tina Turner. To date,
though, her only North American engagements have been singing
the Italian national anthem at the closing ceremony of the 2002
Salt Lake City Winter Olympics and two sold-out shows at NYC���s
Joe���s Pub in April 2008. Elisa���s highly anticipated upcoming
tour is in support of her North American debut album Dancing,
released July 15 on Sugar/Universal.

The itinerary kicks off with a show in Toronto on the 29th
followed by one in Montreal the next night. The remainder of
the tour encompasses coast-to-coast dates in the U.S.,
beginning with a Boston-area show at Great Scott in Allston on
November 1, as well as another venture into Canada at Vancouver���
s Biltmore Club on November 23. Highlights also include
bookings at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC (11/5), Martyrs��� in
Chicago (11/11), the Roxy in Los Angeles, CA (11/19) and San
Francisco���s Caf�� Du Nord (11/20).

Stateside fans first became familiar with Elisa when Dancing���s
title track was featured in a breathtaking routine on So You
Think You Can Dance
in June 2007. Organic fan reaction from
that airing has since accumulated over 1 million views of the
clip on YouTube, and propelled the song to the Top 20 on
iTunes, where it reached close to 100,000 paid downloads prior
to the album���s release. Another stand-out track from Dancing, ���
Rock Your Soul,��� has also been featured on the hit program.

Other album highlights include the ethereal, hypnotic ballad ���
Rainbow,��� which has a new video spotlighting Lacey Schwimmer,
who originally danced to ���Dancing��� when it captivated music
lovers on SYTYCD. Also featured are the passionate album
opener ���The Waves,��� the heartbreaking ���Broken,��� the rock-
flavored ���Stranger��� and an elegiac take on Leonard Cohen���s ���
Hallelujah.��� Another cover, Elisa���s dreamlike rendition of the
Rolling Stones��� ���Wild Horses,��� is available exclusively on the
iTunes version of the album.

To date, Elisa���s artistry has been honored with major awards
including five from Italy���s prestigious Festival di Sanremo, an
MTV European Music Awards Best Italian Artist win and a Tenco
Award for Best Debut Album for  Pipes And Flowers (���97). With
her North American album and touring debut, Elisa is poised to
win honors and hearts in the new world as well.  ���Having the
opportunity to play here, especially, is very important because
for me, it really comes down to the face to face with an
audience,��� says Elisa. ���I���m very curious about what that will
be like on the tour. I believe that we are all the same, that
the world is one place. I want to see if that is true.���
