Marina has been to Salt Lake City today where she did a small gig at the Coca-Cola Lounge for the local radio station 97.1 ZHT. The small concert consisted of “Primadonna”, “Starring Role” and “How to be a Heartbreaker” and a video is still to follow, while pictures have already been uploaded into our gallery.
The video is now up and it’s in high quality, so very enjoyable to watch. After her performance she answered a couple of fan-questions, too.
Marina going back to the US for two more shows (Denver and Chicago) tomorrow, but Sunday (July 15) she spent in Vancouver. We’ve already posted a review and some photos of her concert here, but there’s actually a bit more of stuff from Canada: Daniel Sean has been lucky enough to meet her as she arrived at the venue, so there are a couple of photos he took there while PR Press was able to interview Marina (the chat is yet to be released, a photo has been already shared though).
Additionally, 97.1 ZHT is live-streaming Marina’s concert on July 17th here, so if you’re interesting in watching it, check out the link. The video will be published afterwards on that site, so if you miss it, you don’t have to worry!
And the “Lonely Hearts Club” Tour continues with her only stop in Canada! Marina performed in Vancouver on Sunday (July 15) and both Christine Redmond and Larissa Cahute were able to take photos which you can look at in the gallery by clicking on the banner above. The Province published a review, too:
The Welsh singer sure knew how to work the crowd, offering not only music, but a performance – complete with a set of props: A comfortable looking couch with heart pillows, a nightie, a miniature stuffed toy poodle (named Marilyn) and a martini glass to wet her whistle. She worked the crowd from all angles, strutting across the stage in her Barbie doll outfits while performing a balance between new and old – singing favourites like ‘Mowgli’s Road‘ and ‘I Am Not A Robot.‘ — Read the full review?
Marina stopped in Seattle for her “Lonely Hearts Club” Tour on Saturday (July 14) and Dave Lichterman took some great photos you can browse in the gallery. Furthermore Another Rainy Saturday has posted a review:
Ripping in to “Bubblegum Bitch,” the opening track on Heart, Marina took the stage in head to toe pink, delivering with a sugary disposition almost too syrupy to bear. And on “Primadonna,” Marina dipped the mike into the crowd, coaxing her hypnotized Diamonds in a punchy sing-along. The night proved to be an eclectic mix of sugar and spice, peppered perfectly with hits old and new – and glazed in 80s power pop for the lover and dreamer in all of us (minus the mess of being overused and sleazy). — Read the full review?
The third successful concert of the US “Lonely Hearts Club Tour” leg took place last night (July 13) in Portland. Jasette took a couple of pretty photos which you can take a look at in the gallery. The setlist can be seen here and the two videos below show the anticipation of Marina at the concert’s start and the intro of Power & Control.
Marina’s second concert of the US leg of the “Lonely Hearts Club Tour” took place in San Francisco and we’ve uploaded four images by San Francisco Weekly and Paige K. which you can take a look at by clicking on the banner above. There’s also a review, here’s an excerpt:
Despite all the theatrics of the evening, Marina never once seems disengaged with her audience — even when she’s reclining on a chaise lounge at the back of the stage during “Starring Role.” She is clearly thrilled to be here. She grins throughout “I am Not a Robot,” giggles with her fans between and during songs, and indulges in some in-jokes that go down incredibly well — one of which involves a toy poodle named Marilyn who “is a crack addict” (the fake dog appeared in the video for “Primadonna” earlier this year). — Read more?
Just like Marina in the UK when “Electra Heart” was released there Marina is currently doing some promo in the US through radio stations. There are quite a few new photos and interview and this post gives you an overview of all the recent appearances she has made.
There’s an interview she did with Miles from Live Radio 105, which you can listen to here. Seems like she made a positive impression, as she’s being described as “quite stunning”!
She also stopped at 99.7 Now to have a chat with Letty B. whom she also gave a Primadonna make-over, so there are two videos of that appearance:
Then there’s also a pretty interesting interview Audrey Kitching did, which does not quite fit the radio-station-post but it’s an interview, too, so here you go:
Do you prefer to be touring and out on the road, or home recording and living the day to day life?
When I’m on the road, I want the normal life and when I’m living the normal life, I want to be on the road performing. Being an artist is a luxurious thing, as you are always stimulated and can never predict what will happen next for you. You’re paid to be an escapist so if I had to pick one, it would be the touring life. — Read more?

On Tuesday Marina’s second leg of the “Lonely Hearts Club Tour” began! This one will lead her through the United States, starting in Los Angeles. Take a look at some professional photos (by Idolator and Losanjealous) by clicking on the banner above, in which you can see how she added some new clothes. She performed 18 songs in total and added “Hypocrates” back to the setlist. There’s a review by Idolator, too, in which you can find out some details, such as what Marina said, too:
Her (fake) toy poodle dog Marilyn made a cameo at one point, with Marina sharing that her pooch’s “favourite thing is snuffling piles of cocaine”. Her sense of humor shined throughout the show, especially when she accepted poems and drawings from her fans in the crowd. “Imagine if I put them on my fridge, then brought a boyfriend home and my walls are full of this stuff, pictures of me and poems for me,” she laughed. — Read more?
