Ida Maria's Fortress 'Round My Heart is easily one of the best albums of the past 12 months.
Spin magazine agrees with us, naming her CD one of the 20 Best Albums of 2009 So Far and saying "Ida Maria throws herself into every song as if it's all a big finale, which makes for an auspicious beginning."
And watching her perform these songs live is an experience that is not to be missed!
We've had the pleasure of seeing Ida Maria in concert and she is one of the most dynamic performers around! This feisty Norweigan brings a rawness and ferociousness to the stage that is completely captivating.
That's why we are thrilled to have Ida Maria be a part of our first-ever tour, Perez Hilton Presents, playing across North America this fall.
Tickets go on sale to the general public this weekend and our Perezcious readers will have access to a special pre-sale this Thursday.
