There are plenty of passionate Cliff Richard fans in this town, with the musical legend’s Burswood Dome concert alongside The Shadows sold out.

Fans have been starved of the chance to see the band live since 1961, resulting in unprecedented demand.

A second concert was announced. The band will be playing again on Sunday February 7.

Legendary guitarist Hank Marvin, who plays in The Shadows, lives a mostly quiet existence in East Perth, but will surely bust out some hot tunes during the tour.

It is 50 years since Cliff Richard and The Shadows got together. This Australian tour, billed as their Final Reunion, will bring them back to Oz for the first time since 1961.

Promoter Paul Dainty said there had been “unprecedented demand for tickets for this tour.  Cliff Richard and the Shadows have not been to Australia since 1961 so it’s been a long wait to see this legendary band”.

Tickets for the Sunday February 7 show go on sale on September 17, from midday.

Bookings can be made through www.ticketek.com.au or 132 849.

In 2007 P!nk staged the biggest Australian concert tour ever by a female artist, with more than 307,000 tickets sold for a 35 show itinerary that grew to a run of more than 8 weeks around the country’s arenas.

Winning the 2007 Helpmann Award for ‘Best International Contemporary Concert’, 2007’s I’m Not Dead Tour was a spectacular that drew critical raves and standing ovations!

“Such was the deafening reception for the singer… it was impossible not to be swept up in the excitement of her opening songs… the singer’s strikingly energetic performance left them tickled pink .” Sun Herald

“The pop rebel shimmied, grooved and rocked her way across the arena all night, turning her performance into an elaborate stage show to take her sometimes controversial messages to the masses. And they loved it.” mX

Now P!nk brings her Funhouse Tour 2009 to Australia, presented by Optus for what is certain to be another recordbreaking run of shows.

Aiming to top the raunchy theatrical performances of the I’m Not Dead Tour, Funhouse will not disappoint! Expect a dazzling carnival-styled stage set, feats of aerial daring and surprises that can only be hinted at… and at the core, the confident and charismatic vocal powerhouse that is unmistakably P!nk .

P!nk said, “I’m so excited to get back on the road. The ‘Funhouse’ tour ideas are running rampant in my head. Who knows what they’ll come out as…. And I can’t wait to see.”

“When P!nk lets rip there’s no denying her soul or sass.” Herald Sun

“She’s real, fallible, positive, gutsy, a self-confessed dork and knows her own mind. And she has proved to be a great entertainer too, offering….one of the best shows….seen in a long time.” West Australian Set to add substantially to the accumulated albums sales of 23 million world-wide, P!nk ‘s 5th studio album Funhouse will be released on October 25 by Sony/BMG, and features the 1 smash hit So What.

SANDALFORD Wines is set to expand after an agreement to buy the Killerby vineyard on Caves Rd, Margaret River.

The vineyard is located on the boundary of Sandalford’s existing 400ha vineyard.wines

Sandalford Wines chief executive Grant Brinklow said the purchase provided Sandalford with a unique, long-term opportunity.

“First and foremost and coinciding with our vision of delivering ‘a fine wine experience’, our primary objective is for Sandalford to be a benchmark producer of premium and super premium wine from one of Australia’s – and fast becoming the world’s – leading wine-producing appellations, Margaret River,” he said.

“This acquisition will help achieve that objective by giving us access to some more well-established vines on arguably one of the best sites in the region.”

Mr Brinklow said the site would play host to large-scale concerts and events over the coming years.
“Negotiations are currently underway with our promoter partners to bring some truly world class performers to our Margaret River vineyard next season, the likes of which haven’t performed in the region previously,” he said.

Mr Brinklow said the venue would hold at least 12,000 people.

“We have aspirations of making our Margaret River vineyard the premier winery concert venue in the country.”
