For many years, the American singer, fashion designer and style icon Beth Ditto was the energetic, eccentric frontwoman of the dance punk band Gossip, well-known for hits like ‘Love Long Distance’, ‘Standing In The Way Of Control’ and ‘Heavy Cross’. After Gossip split in 2016, Ditto began a solo career (although she’d already had a solo hit in 2011 with ‘I Wrote The Book’). On her debut album ‘Fake Sugar’, which was released in 2017, she flirts with soul, pop and disco. Earlier this year, the BBC proclaimed the first single from the album as ‘the world’s hottest record’, so this promises to be a scintillating evening in Utrecht.
