TINA ARENA IN CONCERT
Following Tina Arena's multi platinum selling French album Autre Univers and her role of Roxie Hart in the London production of Chicago, Tina Arena returns home to delight Aussie audiences with live concerts in Melbourne on 28 December, and
Sydney on 2 & 3 January.
This special concert program performed with a 35 piece orchestra is set to thrill with Tina's lush interpretations of her own greatest hits plus material from her forthcoming album Songs of Love and Loss.
Tina now embraces the ultimate torch songs of all time from Burt Bacharach's soaring Dusty Springfield hit “I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself” and Lulu's wistful “To Sir With Love”, through to Kate Bush's “Man with a Child in his Eyes”, and REM's “Everybody Hurts”. Each one deals in its own inimitable way with the longing, the complications, the highs and the lows of love.
"Nothing is simple anymore", says Tina. "As a woman and mother living in modern times everything has layers, and I wanted to embrace that".
"Lulu, Dusty, Carole King, Diana Ross, these women really took on life in their own
way," says Tina." They sang songs that made a statement."
Tina has spent nearly 30 years in the spotlight from Young Talent Time to 90s disco diva to international chart-topping songstress. She has conquered Australia, the US, the UK and now France with her distinctive and stylish voice.
Don't miss this rare concert appearance of one of Australia's greatest and most versatile stars.
