Special artist announcement - Bluesfest is heating up!
15 December 2010
Bluesfest is very proud to unveil Grace Jones as a major new artist announcement who performs on the main stage on Friday night April 22, 2011
A Grace Jones performance is not just a concert; it's a MUST-SEE unique happening you'd be crazy to miss! A special event that's part musical tour de force, part runway fashion show, and part theatrical drama full of outrageous extravagance. In fact, her appearance at the 2009 Sydney Festival is still being talked about!
Festival director Peter Noble said, "We usually unveil a group of artists, but Ms Jones warrants her very own announcement. If pop is the preserve of the young, well... nobody told Grace Jones - maybe they were too scared?"
"A live showstopper, musical powerhouse, enigma and inspiration to so many artists from Annie Lennox to Lady Gaga, Grace Jones in concert is spectacular from first to last. There's just nobody quite like her - one of the most recognisable faces on the planet, she's the woman that launched a million haircuts, she's had Arnold Schwarzenegger complaining about being too tough on the set of Conan The Destroyer, and when she walks down the street, traffic stops!"
Bluesfest fans can expect a voice that spans two and a half octaves from her commanding speak-singing to her soaring soprano, plus music from across her whole career - including tracks from her great and critically acclaimed 2008 comeback album Hurricane, plus her hits "Pull Up to the Bumper", "Love Is The Drug", "I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango)", "Slave to the Rhythm" and "I'm Not Perfect (But I'm Perfect for You).
So make sure you're FRONT AND CENTRE for the incomparable Grace Jones - or suffer the consequences!
