Pop Up Tour 2012
20 June 2012
Australia’s foremost female children’s entertainer, Justine Clarke is preparing to ‘pop up!’ this summer for a pre-Christmas treat in ‘Justine Clarke’s Pop Up Tour 2012’.
Pre-schoolers will be tickled pink at the news of Justine and her three-piece band performing at capital theatres around the nation this November – December.
Tickets for shows in Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne will go on sale at 9am on Monday June 25th. My Live Nation and fan club members will be able to access pre-sale tickets from midday on Friday June 22nd.
Justine will bring the stage to life in a pop up book theme highlighting the stories we tell through music and song.
It will also include a musical reading of Justine’s first book ‘The Gobbledygook Is Eating A Book’ due for release in late October through Penguin.
Through live music, the magic of story telling and an interactive use of the large screen backdrop, the audience won’t be able to resist being thoroughly engaged with this 55-minute musical odyssey of fun!
The ‘Pop Up Tour’ will showcase the ‘best of’ Justine’s tunes – a selection of the ‘pop’ular songs from her three top-selling, ARIA nominated CDs and accompanying DVDs – platinum seller ‘I Like To Sing’, ‘Songs To Make You Smile’ and of course the chart-topping ‘Great Big World’ (released through ABC).
A fourth album – a live ‘best of’ CD entitled ‘A Little Day Out’ inspired by last year’s hugely successful tour – will be available in stores this August.
With a career beginning at the early age of seven, Justine has become one of Australia’s most highly regarded and popular performers of today.
As an adored long-standing presenter on ABC TV’s Play School – now in her 13th year – Justine Clarke is a cheerful, calming and familiar face in the living rooms and lives of children around Australia.
However her extensive career, reaching far beyond children’s entertainer, includes performances across the mediums of television, film and theatre, as well as numerous musical ventures.
Stand-out TV credits include perhaps most notably, playing Ally in Showcase’s brilliant Australian drama series Tangle, for which Justine won the 2010 ASTRA Award for ‘Most Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor’ and was nominated for the ‘Most Outstanding Actress’ Logie.
While numerous film credits include: Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, Japanese Story, Blackrock and the critically acclaimed, award winning Look Both Ways, Justine can also be found treading the boards, often in Sydney Theatre Company productions, and following her passion for singing, particularly jazz.
There is no doubt Justine Clarke is a versatile performer, bringing heart and soul to the stage.
