This year marks 20 years since Christine Anu released her smash hit breakthrough, Stylin’ Up. To celebrate, Christine is heading to Lizotte’s Newcastle on August 14 for a special anniversary show.
In a 2 hour show, Christine will perform the songs that drew in fans from around the globe and cemented her place as an iconic Australian performer. Audiences will be entertained with Christine’s hit songs Island Home, Party, Monkey and the Turtle, and Wanem Time as well as the full repertoire of songs from the album that started it all! Christine will also surprise audiences with other favourite tunes from her illustrious and successful career as one of Australia’s most well-known, loved and respected Indigenous artists.
“I can’t believe it’s been 20 years since I released STYLIN UP. In many ways it seems like a long time ago, but also the blink of an eye. So many wonderful things happened because of the success of that album and the wonderful songs that appear on it. I am enormously proud of My Island Home and the special place it holds in the Australian Songbook. Then there are songs like Party that still get played on radio and television and is still fun to sing live,” said Christine.
2015 has already stated with some memorable events for Christine. She celebrated Australia Day in Vietnam where she performed for the Australian Ambassador and dignitaries at the prestigious Hanoi Opera House. Christine also took part in workshops at the National University of Arts Education and met some of the women at the Vietnam Womens Union.
Tickets for Christine’s show at Lizottes are on sale now.
