Modularpeople, Destination NSW and Carriageworks have joined forces for this year’s Vivid Sydney and will play host to the multi-award winning iconic singer, songwriter, model, actor and all round enigma for three exclusive concerts at the Modulations series at Carriageworks.
These shows will be Jones’ only Australian appearances and her first visit to Sydney since her sell-out shows in 2011.
Starting as a model working for Yves Saint Laurent, Claude Montana, and Kenzo Takada, and appearing on the covers of Elle and Vogue, Grace Jones ventured into the world of music when she secured her first record deal in the 70’s with Island Records. Her list of award-winning Top 40 hits is endless, including ‘Pull Up to the Bumper’, ‘Private Life’, and ‘Slave to the Rhythm’; songs that were lifted from such seminal albums as ‘Warm Leatherette’ (1980), ‘Nightclubbing’ (1981), and ‘Slave to the Rhythm’(1985). Widely recognised for influencing decades of fashion movements, Grace Jones has also been an inspiration for an endless list of artists: Annie Lennox, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Brazilian Girls, Santigold, and Basement Jaxx.
Her live sets are duly renowned as nothing short of incredible, segueing from disco to funk, from pop to punk, all presented within a visual spectacular as stunning as the musical artistry.
With her first two shows already sold out, we have been lucky enough to get our hands on some tickets to her third and final performance, so for a chance to attend this must-see music event and experience Grace Jones’ electric on-stage performance on Tuesday June 2nd, leave your details below.
