KIM PETRAS ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL SHOWS AND VENUE UPGRADES!

Having sold out both headline shows in Australia within just hours of going on sale, Kim Petras announces additional Australian shows and increases venues sizes to keep up with ticket demand.

Fans in Brisbane will now have the chance to catch Kim Petras at Eatons Hill Hotel, where she will be supporting UK pop sensation Rita Ora, alongside Sammi Constantine.

Sydney and Melbourne fans that missed out on the first release, will now have a second chance at snatching up tickets with a venue upgrade in Sydney and an additional show in at Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club.

The additional dates come after Kim’s recent announcement for the 2019 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

The German pop-star, who is already well-known for transitioning publicly at a very young age, took the music industry by storm, landing the #1 spot on Spotify’s Viral Top 50, collaborating with Charli XCX, Cheat Codes and SOPHIE, and securing tour supports with Troye Sivan.

Fans in both Sydney and Melbourne that are lucky enough to snap up tickets, will have the rare opportunity of catching global hits like ‘1,2,3 dayz up (Feat. SOPHIE)’, ‘I Don’t Want It All’ and ‘Heart Break’ in intimate venues, unlikely to be booked again.

 

I can’t wait to finally get out to Australia’ Said Kim Petras, ‘I’ve always wanted to head over to check out the Sydney Mardis Gras. Performing shows while I’m in the country is another huge plus!”

It allows me to do something completely different celebrating songwriters I love such as Harry Nilsson, Jim Webb, Burt Bacharach, Lennon & McCartney, Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber … the list goes on… as well as many of my hits such as ‘I Know Him So Well’, ‘Don’t Cry for Me Argentina’ and of course my signature ‘Memory’.  This music has been the soundtrack to all our lives, not just mine.  And it’s the ideal opportunity to perform in an intimate way.”

Elaine has performed live in concert all over the world and as a recording artist has worked with legendary producers such as Tony ViscontiDennis Lambert, Peter Matz, & Phil Ramone amongst others and has released 22 solo albums (4 multi-Platinum and 9 Gold,) been featured on 7 cast recordings and has had major worldwide hits with songs such as Memory (Cats) and I Know Him So Well (Chess.)

As a musical theatre performer Elaine has made a major contribution to the modern musical.  She has starred in more smash hit West End & Broadway musicals than anyone else of her generation and continues to present the hugely successful weekly BBC Radio 2 show Elaine Paige on Sunday, now approaching its 15th year on air, which is devoted to musical theatre and film music, and continues to delight audiences of over 2.5 million listeners each week across the UK.
