TEG DAINTY has announced Enchanté: The Songs Of Tina Arena, a tour taking in eight Australian cities to celebrate this Australian icon’s body of work. Composer, violinist and dancer Eric Avery will be special guest on the tour. In Melbourne at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl Tina will be accompanied by her band and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra with a special reserved seated lawn. Enchanté: The Songs Of Tina Arena kicks off in Sydney on Tuesday 4 May, 2021 before touring to Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Wollongong and Canberra. Paul Dainty, President and CEO of TEG DAINTY said, "I could not be more excited to announce that we are touring Tina Arena next year. She is one of Australia’s most extraordinary performers. Tina is an absolute icon - such an essential part of Australia's rich musical history. She has also experienced such incredible success in Europe. We are so lucky to have Tina back on home soil and I can’t wait to welcome her onto our Australian stages once more."
Given that all touring plans ground to a halt early this year and life as we know it was put on hold as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, Tina Arena is ecstatic to announce she has a 2021 tour on the horizon. “2020 has been such a challenging year for us all in so many ways with the music, arts and entertainment sectors suffering,” she said.
“It's really important for us all to have something to look forward to and return to doing the things we cherish the most as much as possible. Performing is my lifeblood - it's all I've ever wanted to do! - and I can't wait to be back on stage singing and connecting with my fans through the power of music.
“My art is all about sharing and when I'm giving it my all, the band's locked in and the audience is responsive - there's no greater feeling in the world! It's a special kind of energy exchange; the whole atmosphere seems to shift. Just thinking about it now, I miss performing so much! It actually feeds my soul. I am also pretty excited to have a reason to glam-up again, to be honest."
