‘She's the definition of ‘fierce’ on stage, donning wild, androgynous '80s-style get-ups, busting moves that put Beyonce to shame, and singing her obviously love-scarred heart out like it's the last time she'll ever get the chance... Robyn rocked it from the get-go.’ LA Weekly

‘In what could be one of the greatest performances I have ever seen by a solo artist, Robyn took the stage like an unleashed wild animal and was ready to entertain. Backed by two drummers and two keyboardists, she packs more punch and energy than a case of Red Bull. Opening with ‘Fembot,’ and never seeming to let up one bit, she turned the venue upside down…’ The Huffington Post
Robyn became best known in the late nineties for her worldwide pop hits "Do You Know (What It Takes)" and ‘Show Me Love’. After severing ties with her major record label, Robyn started her own label, Konichiwa Records, and reinvented her career on her own terms.
Subsequently in 2007, she released the internationally successful album ‘Robyn’, which produced the #1 smash single ‘With Every Heartbeat’ & a string of top 10 hits including ‘Be Mine’ and ‘Handle Me’.
Three years later in 2010, Robyn released a trilogy of critically acclaimed albums titled ‘Body Talk’, which were featured in numerous end of year best album polls. The albums spawned hits such as Dancing on My Own, Indestructible and Call Your Girlfriend and included collaborations with the likes of Snoop Dogg, Diplo, Royksopp and Kleerup.
Having previously toured with Madonna, Katy Perry, Coldplay and Kelis, ROBYN’s full-on live shows have played on some of the biggest stages round the world. Robyn doesn't rely on backup dancers, numerous costume changes or props, her energy, empowering lyrics and prolific pop gems make this a show you do not want to miss!
‘As the crowd spilled out of the (venue) and into the midnight chill, they were still dancing to those infectious melodies. The near-unanimous review: "So good! Soooooo good!’ Spin.com
