Jewel Ready To Play Again

 

17 June 2002

When Jewel gets the urge to move on, boy does she feel it. "I've always had a strong internal movement, a real fierce instinct to move," Jewel says on the day she is to begin a fifty-date U.S. tour in Tampa, Florida, behind her latest release, 'This Way'. "If I feel like I'm standing still inside of myself, it's when I'm the unhappiest and the hardest to be around."

Jewel won't be standing still onstage either, as she will get back to playing guitar. She had to take a break from playing on her European jaunt after injuring herself this April when she was thrown from a horse.

This time around, Jewel will avoid the non-stop push of the world tour behind her last album, 1998's 'Spirit', taking breaks of five, sometimes ten days between some performances. "I decided to make it fun and not think about record sales or anything but just do what I liked - play smaller venues," she says. "I'm playing theatres, which is one of my favourite sizes, 'cause you can still do solo music and you can still rock out. And I can have a rapport with the audience, and that's hard in those bigger places."
