Actress, Recording Artist, Producer, Broadcaster and the First Lady of Musical Theatre, Elaine Paige has announced an 8-date series of concerts in Australia and New Zealand this October.
Paige will perform songs from her illustrious career along side an array of her favourite tracks by contemporary songwriters.
I'm so excited about taking this concert to more venues across the globe... a brand new show celebrating songwriters I love such as Harry Nilsson, Jim Webb, Burt Bacharach, Lennon & McCartney, Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber ... 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 Paige.
Paige has performed live in concert all over the world and as a recording artist has worked with legendary producers such as Tony Visconti, Dennis Lambert, Peter Matz, and 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 and 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 with its mix of music, news and interviews.
