Music is in our bones and PLAY is designed to entertain and thrill the auditory senses, which is why we are constantly working to bring you the very best of the world’s music.
This time we are very proud to present you the venerable Ida Nielsen who has toured the world with the late Prince as a bassist and vocalist. Choosing Hong Kong as the first and only stop of her Asia tour, Ida and her band will be joining us to give a very special live performance at PLAY on 17th June (SAT) from 8pm to 11pm followed by a resident DJ set. Tickets are selling online and at the venue for $200 and $300 respectively.
“I think I learned that anything is possible, if you put your mind to it. …There’s no limit. If you push, then the limit is pushed, too…I feel like you can improve in so many ways in your whole life, but I guess what I mean is to not stop improving. To be kind of a life student.” said Ida Nielsen in an interview with The Current.
As a member of the 3RDEYEGIRL and The New Power Generation, backing bands for Prince, Ida Nielsen describes playing with Prince as “a huge gift and as the most magical musical journey ever, and an on-going learning experience beyond all imagination.” She has constantly been seeking diversity in music. Her new solo produced and programmed album “Turnitup” released in 2016 revealed the spirit of her by integrating different genres of music including hiphop and reggae into her unyielding funk style.
