THE JUDY HENZELL SUNSHINE MELODIES CONCERT SERIES PRESENTS SIMON GILLESPIE SINGS PETER ALLEN
Simon Gillespie grew up just about as far away from Peter Allen as it’s possible to get and yet has an uncanny affinity for the music of this extraordinary singer/songwriter.
Including Olivia Newton John’s landmark recording of ‘I Honestly Love You’ and Peter’s own soulful and heart-wrenchingly honest delivery of ‘Tenterfield Saddler’ these songs are lovingly recreated in this outstanding new show – ‘SIMON GILLESPIE sings PETER ALLEN’.
From working as Judy Garland’s opening act [Quiet Please – There’s a Lady Onstage] to international stardom as an openly flamboyant and controversial artist [Bi-Coastal] these songs take us on a journey through life, love and finally having to say goodbye [Once Before I Go].
For almost 15 years audiences across the globe have been clamouring for Simon to deliver a purely ‘Peter Allen’ set as only he can. Well here it finally is, working to standing ovations and encores everywhere!
Peter Allen’s songs are his legacy and with Simon’s skillfully sensitive interpretations they serve so well to tell the story of his life and his loves in this new very personal, very intimate cabaret.
Duration: – Approximately 90 minutes without an interval (subject to change without notice)
