The Roundhouse in London has held a wide range of events (after it stopped housing trains) ranging from Bob Dylan to the iTunes Festival and much much more, but I went there to see the ever-talented multi-instrumentalist Katie Melua.

When you think of Alanis Morissette, you are no doubt automatically transported to the 1990s when the female singer-songwriter movement was thriving. Back then, no one could have predicted that out of nowhere, a 21-year-old Canadian singer would explode onto the music scene with as much originality and intensity as Morissette, a musician unlike any...

It is pretty safe to say that a return for Roxette to the U.S. stage is a very long time overdue.
