Legendary pop culture and music icon, Grace Jones will make her highly anticipated return to Australian shores in February 2018. Presented by The Operatives, the critically-acclaimed American musician, model and actress will appear live in concert from Melbourne’s Palais Theatre, for a very special, one-night only affair on Monday.
In a career that seems to have spanned several lifetimes she has been a singer, songwriter, supermodel, record producer and actress. She is listed in VH1’s 100 Greatest Women of Rock and Roll and has been an inspiration for numerous artists including Annie Lennox, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Lorde, Santigold and Basement Jaxx.
It is 36 long years since Grace Jones appeared in Adelaide. But her latest festival gigs have been leaving audiences and reviewers around the world gasping at the spectacle (a new outfit for each song!), the spontaneity, the simultaneous warmth and danger of her stage presence.
Grace Jones will bring her original show to the stage in Melbourne next month.
