Diana Ross to Tour Australia (May Bring an Aussie Pop Idol Along)

Posted: August 8, 2006 in Music

Mixed blessings then.

She will play Melbourne’s Regent Theatre on October 30, Sydney’s Capitol Theatre on November 3, and Sanctuary Cove in Queensland on November 4.

She will also be a special guest performer along with crooner Chris Isaak at the Victoria Racing Club’s Chairman’s Dinner at Flemington Racecourse on November 1.

Tickets for the shows go on sale on Thursday, August 10.

POCKET rocket chart-topper Anthony Callea has landed the coveted support role on legendary diva Diana Ross’s Australian tour.

Callea, an Australian Idol runner-up, enjoyed great chart success last year.

His debut single The Prayer spent five weeks on top of the charts and earned a swag of industry awards for the young singer.

Callea will open for Ross in Sydney and Melbourne, and described the opportunity as one of the highlights of his career.

“Diana Ross is one of the all time greatest singers in the world. I am absolutely thrilled to be able to perform with such an icon in the music industry,” Callea said.

Ross, who was last in Australia in 1997, will perform three concerts in Australia.

    Thats fantastic news. I will definately be going to this show. I have seen Diana Ross in concert years ago and it was an absolutely fantastic show. I have also seen Anthony Callea in concert and I have to say he is one Australia’s stars of the future. I hope he gets the opportunities to venture into the overseas market, maybe this tour with Miss Ross will be the start of something good for Anthony.

    >> Edit>>, glad you liked the story, don’r forget to digg the story if you want.
