NZ first for Bruce Ma­son Cen­tre: Juice New­ton live

Central Leader - - NEWS -

One of the world’s most tal­ented and pas­sion­ate fe­male coun­try mu­sic stars, Juice New­ton, will per­form one night only in New Zealand – at the Bruce Ma­son Cen­tre on Au­gust 19.

Juice New­ton likens her singing to a paint­ing pro­ject: ‘‘It’s very vis­ual for me – the story of the song un­folds be­fore my eyes while I sing.’’

Now this Grammy, CMA and Bill­board award-win­ning artist, with mul­ti­ple plat­inum and gold al­bums, 10 mil­lion records sold and 15 Top 10 hits has a new set of ‘paint­ings’ to dis­play.

You’ll hear dis­tinc­tive ver­sions of You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin, Still the One, Fooled Around and Fell in Love, Up Where We Be­long, With­out You, Th­ese Dreams, The Big­gest Part of Me, Take It to the Limit, Funny How Time Slips Away and Touch Me – along with her own Grammy-nom­i­nated hits.

Juice New­ton ex­ploded into the main­stream in 1981 with Juice – an al­bum com­pi­la­tion of tear­ful, wall-of-sound pop and coun­try rock de­liv­ered with crys­talline tone, in­fec­tious en­ergy and au­then­tic­ity.

In­clud­ing in Juice were hits An­gel of the Morn­ing, Queen of Hearts and num­ber one coun­try smash hit The Sweet­est Thing I’ve Ever Known.

Juice went plat­inum and in­ter­na­tional sales rock­eted; The Sweet­est Thing spent 18 weeks in the Top 40, and New­ton earned two Grammy nom­i­na­tions for Best Fe­male Vo­cal­ist. Her ren­di­tion of An­gel of the Morn­ing topped one mil­lion sales in the US.

Juice will be ac­com­pa­nied on this tour by Kylie Price. At 19 New Zealan­der Kylie cap­ti­vated au­di­ences as the open­ing act for The Hol­lies’ New Zealand Tour, be­fore win­ning more hearts at the Tam­worth Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val in Aus­tralia.

Dubbed ‘Kiwi Kylie’ by the fans she won Over­all En­ter­tainer of the Year 2013, CCMA Over­all Win­ner 2013 and the Tam­worth Song­writ­ers As­so­ci­a­tion award.
