In December 2009, prior to the release of her debut album, The Family Jewels, Marina and the Diamonds announced an eight-date concert tour for the United Kingdom in February 2010. Following the success of her British tour, with tickets selling out, Marina Diamandis announced her second United Kingdom and Ireland tour, entitled "The Gem Tour".[1] Tour dates for the United States and mainland Europe, in countries such as France, Germany, The Netherlands and Switzerland, were shortly added.[2]

Diamandis is also planned to perform at several music festivals in the United States (SXSW 2010[3]), the United Kingdom ("The Great Escape 2010",[4] "Isle of Wight Festival 2010"[5] and "The Secret Garden Party 2010"[6]) Norway ("Øyafestivalen 2010"[7]) and Sweden ("Way Out West Festival 2010"[8]).

Reception

Katy Ratican from Contact Music rated Diamandis' Manchester concert on 21 February, 2010 nine starts out of ten saying it "was impressively cohesive and Marina held the limelight with charisma and confidence". She also predicted that the "next time [Diamandis] plays Manchester, it will be to a sold out Academy 2 audience, with a top-selling album gracing the merchandising stand. Marina won't be playing to a few hundred people above a trendy bar in the foreseeable future."[9] Joanne Dorken from MTV UK praised Diamandis' performance of "Obsessions" at London's Bush Hall on 23 February, 2010 calling it the "highlight of the evening as Marina proved her vocal ability as well as showcasing her talent for playing live."[10]
