Pop legend Anastacia – the mega voice behind massive hits including I’m Outta Love and Left Outside Alone comes to Symphony Hall.
With over 30 million records sold worldwide, Anastacia is one of the most recognisable voices of our time and will celebrate her career with the new release. The record follows her last studio album Resurrection that reached the UK Top 10 – the fifth in her career – cementing Anastacia’s timeless status, with a voice that will continue to reach many for years to come. The Ultimate Collection sees the superstar return to her native label home of Sony Music, the label that were instrumental in catapulting Anastacia to global stardom, where she debuted and released her breakout smash hits starting with I’m Outta Love in 2000. 2015 has been a huge year for Anastacia so far; she is currently performing on her 80-date ‘Resurrection’ World Tour.
“I feel so blessed and humbled to be experiencing this exciting next chapter of my life. The idea for my ‘Ultimate Collection’ is to include something for everyone. I’m eternally grateful to be reunited with Sony, the record label that made all of this possible from day one. 15 years later I’m back, I’m home and I couldn’t be happier”.

… “Supported by a tight backing band, Anastacia took the time to introduce each member with a school room style ‘Hi Mrs …’ however it’s her powerful vocals that truly carry the performance.
Tracks such as Heavy On My Heart, You’ll Never Be Alone and The Fantastic Four’s Everything Burns allowed her to remind us just how distinctive a voice she has, while Why’d You Lie To Me and Paid My Dues showed a rockier and livelier side.
Even covering Foo Fighters Best Of You, the evening took in a plethora of tracks from different stages of Anastacia’s career before ending on biggest hits Left Outside Alone and One Day In Your Life which had people spilling into the aisles for a dance.
Taking time in the evening to reflect on past illnesses, you get the impression that she is truly and sincerely thankful to still be performing on stage doing what she loves.
Clocking in at more than an hour and a half, fans couldn’t help but be reminded just how strong a back catalogue Anastacia has and, I’m sure that for as long as she’s performing, she’ll never be Outta Love. “
