Tina Arena In Concert @ Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC)


“A beautiful voice telling a beautiful story.” Cameron Adams, Herald Sun ’07. Tina Arena - Singer, songwriter and musical theatre star is one of Australia’s most popular and enduring artists. Her remarkable career spans some 30 years and evokes praise from peers and critics worldwide for her exceptional vocal ability, work ethic, and down-to-earth attitude. She is an international success but an Aussie girl at heart.

In 2007 Tina released ‘Songs of Love & Loss’ – a selection of hand-picked songs that she grew up listening to, and connected with, that centred on the human emotions of ‘love & loss’ – songs by Dusty Springfield, LuLu, REM, Kate Bush etc. The album went on to become one of the highest selling Australian albums of that year and peaked at #3 on the national charts.

In early 2008 Tina sold out three concerts at the Sydney Opera House and two at Melbourne’s Hamer Hall, then returned again mid-year as a special guest on the Andrea Bocelli tour, joining him at the close of the show with 3 duets including ‘The Prayer’ and ‘Canto Della Terra’.
“Tina Arena is a beautiful singer." Andrea Bocelli ’08.
With little time to recover, Tina was straight back into Angel Studios in London to record ‘Songs of Love & Loss 2’ along with conductor Simon Hale and the London Studio Orchestra. In a continuation of the theme the album includes Tina’s unique interpretation of ‘Call Me’ Blondie, ‘Oh Me Oh My’ LuLu, ‘Only Women Bleed’ Alice Cooper, and ‘I Hope I Never’ Split Enz, and others including a Tina original ‘Living a Lifetime’. “She’s amazing...she rises to the challenge of having everything going straight to tape. Many artists would crumble in these conditions but Tina seems to shine. Simon Hale – Conductor London Studio Orchestra ’08.
Whether she is singing her self-penned hits Sorrento Moon, Chains or Burn, or spine-tingling renditions of contemporary classics by Lulu, Dusty Springfield or The Police, Tina is acclaimed as one of the world’s most versatile and magnificent vocal interpreters. Tina Arena returns to Australia in 2009 with a spectacular concert program, accompanied by her superb band augmented with strings, horns, percussion and harp.
Spine tingling, goose-bumping and all those other superlatives spring to mind when you hear an artist reaching grand new heights.” Daily Telegraph “Her shows are a sensation” Sydney Morning Herald
