Grace Jones

Adelaide Premiere / One Night Only

  • About

    The music world has recently mourned the loss of our most blazing art-rock aristocrats leaving only one with that level of skill, mystique, star-power and otherworldly androgyny: Grace Jones. She demolishes pop culture conventions on how female performers should age or behave.

    In a career that seems to have spanned several lifetimes she has been a singer, songwriter, supermodel, record producer and actress. She is listed in VH1’s 100 Greatest Women of Rock and Roll and has been an inspiration for numerous artists including Annie Lennox, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Lorde, Santigold and Basement Jaxx.

    It is 36 long years since Grace Jones appeared in Adelaide. But her latest festival gigs have been leaving audiences and reviewers around the world gasping at the spectacle (a new outfit for each song!), the spontaneity, the simultaneous warmth and danger of her stage presence.

    Heed the warning of James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem: “If you missed Grace Jones… you’re going to find out from your friends that were there, you fucked up.”
