Fellow international friends, let’s exercise our patience as other countries and dates should be announced soon.

Idina Menzel fans crash website after tour news
Singer Idina Menzel ‘broke’ the Internet on Monday (24Nov14) after announcing dates for an extensive 2015 North American tour. The Frozen star lined up gigs which begin in July (15) and end up with a Hollywood Bowl showdown in October (15), and fans rushed to pick up the first tickets, crashing her website. Menzel took to Twitter.com to reveal the site was back up, posting, “You guys are amazing! Site crashed. Sorry about that but secretly happy you are excited about the tour new (sic)!”

2014 Bloomingdale’s Holiday Window Unveiling

Earlier today Idina performed at Bloomingdale’s Holiday Window Unveiling. If you missed the livestream you can still watch it here. There was an album signing before the performance.

Pictures of the performance are now in the gallery, and I’ve also added a few pics of the iHeart Radio concert that took place last Friday. Did you miss the livestream? Check our Tumblr! And make sure to follow us as I will be posting some new things there soon.

If you were able to attend any of the concerts/signing (or will go to any of the upcoming ones!) and have pictures you would like to share, please send them to flor[at]idina-here.com and let me know how you would like to be credited. Accepting stage door pics as well. As always, all fan contributions to the site are greatly appreciated.

Idina Menzel lets it go where the music takes her

If the themes of Idina Menzel’s songs resonate so well with her female audience members, it may be because she’s been there herself.

The 43-year-old star with the shake-the-rafters-voice, the emerald eyes and the cascade of chestnut hair has pulled off a trifecta of relatable songs that any actress would envy.

First, there was Elphaba, the odd-green-girl-out from Wicked, who declared her independence with the clarion call of Stephen Schwartz’s “Defying Gravity,” a number so potent that — as Ana Gasteyer once said — “every woman I know has wept over it while on the Stairmaster.”

Then, for a slightly younger demographic, she delivered the goods in Disney’s Frozen, launching Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez’s Oscar-winning hit “Let It Go” like it was a melodic guided missile.

And now, back on Broadway, she’s bringing all the generations together with a powerhouse number called “Always Starting Over” by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, which brings the house down every night in the powerful new musical, If/Then, at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.

So how does she feel about hitting the bullseye so many times in a row?
“I don’t know, I really don’t know,” she laughs from her dressing room, between a matinee and an evening performance. “I’ve thought about it myself. It’s not that I’ve been so successful that I can just sit at home and wait for the perfect project with the perfect song to come along. Sometimes, it’s all about taking a job and paying the bills.
“But I do believe that you’re given things in your life that you need, things you can explore that are going to teach you something about yourself. Every role or character or song can come at a time in your life when it relates to what you’re going through and you learn how to use it.”

And another recent video…

An amazing #‎GypsyOfTheYear fundraising auction occurred at Broadway’s IF/THEN musical over the weekend. Idina Menzel offered audience members the chance to join her in singing “Let It Go,” from the Oscar-winning animated film FROZEN, onstage at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. The impromptu auction raised $4,800 for Broadway Cares.
