Australian pop icon, Tina Arena will embark on an eight-date national tour May 2021.
Set to visit Brisbane, Sydney, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, Wollongong and Canberra, the ARIA Hall of Fame inductee will be backed by a band and a string quartet performing songs from her illustrious back catalogue.
"2020 has been such a challenging year for us all in so many ways with the music, arts and entertainment sectors suffering," Tina says.
"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."
Since Tina first took to the stage in 1974 as a seven-year-old contestant on 'Young Talent Time' she has released 12 studio albums, 4 live albums, 5 compilations, 45 singles and 36 music videos.
"Performing is my lifeblood," Tina adds. "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."
Tina will be joined by special guest, renowned composer, violinist and dancer Eric Avery.
