FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – MEDIA RELEASE
Since soul songstress Christine Anu launched her REWIND: The Aretha Franklin Songbook tour, she has been receiving rave reviews and playing to packed out houses across the country. In April 2013, Christine returned with her acclaimed REWIND show after widespread praise for the 2012 tour saw prevalent demand for new dates to be added across Australia.
Christine’s 2013 tour kicked off in spectacular fashion, with two sold-out performances at Bennett’s Lane in Melbourne. The sell-out shows didn’t end here, with a subsequent date at Lizottes selling out, and demand for a new date to be added all too much to be ignored.
Christine is now thrilled to announce a second REWIND show for Lizottes in Central Coast NSW. This second performance is set to take place on 23 June 2013.
In this must-see performance, Anu conjures soulful interpretations of Aretha’s most memorable songs including the signature tunes Respect and (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman as well as Chain of Fools, Today I Sing The Blues and many other unforgettable classic melodies.
REWIND – The Aretha Franklin Songbook was also released in CD and Digital formats at the end of 2012, allowing Aretha fans to take home Christine’s interpretations of these classic tunes.
Christine Anu has been delighting Australian audiences for two decades with an award-winning repertoire spanning across music, theatre, dance, film, television and children’s entertainment and has garnered accolades in all quarters of show business, including a Green Room Award for Best Actress in a Musical for Rent and the Judith Johnson Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Musical at the 2010 Sydney Theatre Awards.
Anu is also a multi-ARIA nominee and recipient, including 1995 Song of the Year for My Island Home, 1996 Best Female Artist for Stylin Up and 1998 Best Video for Bazmark’s Now Until the Break of Day with David Hobson. Anu is also an eight-time Deadly Award recipient. During an illustrious career spanning more than two decades, Christine has amassed a multitude of achievements, including platinum albums, sell-out musicals, Hollywood blockbusters, and high-profiled collaborations with showbiz and musical luminaries such as Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge), Paul Kelly and David Atkins.
