Whitney Houston For MardiGras?

Whitney Houston is touring Australia in February next year, and today announced that she will be performing at Hope Estate Winery in the Hunter Valley on Saturday, 27 February 2010, smack bang in the middle of Mardi Gras season.

The full dates of her Australian tour have not yet been released. It will be her first tour since 1988.

Dubbed ‘The Voice’, Whitney Houston is the ultimate soul-pop diva. She has sold over 170 million records in a glittering career, producing world-famous tracks such as The Greatest Love Of All, Saving All My Love For You, I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me), My Love Is Your Love, and of course, I Will Always Love You – the theme track from her starring role alongside Kevin Costner in The Bodyguard.

Earlier this year Whitney released her comeback album I Look To You, re-instating her diva status. Listen to a stream of the album here.

But the question on the gay community’s lips – will she be performing at Mardi Gras? “We make announcements about performers in our own time – if indeed we choose to announce them,” says Head of Marketing at Mardi Gras, Damien Eames. “Until such point we won’t confirm or deny any speculation about who’s appearing.”

Tickets to Whitney’s Hope Estate Winery concert are on sale from 9am, 11 December through Ticketmaster. Diamond – $195, Gold – $165, Silver – $125 and GA – $95. Full National Tour Dates To Be Announced On 30 November 2009.

Who's going!!

Only the hunter valley show has been announced so far but more cities to be announced shortly!



Announced today is the first very special show at

Hope Estate In The Hunter Valley.



Worldwide superstar Whitney Houston will be embarking on a full tour of Australia for the first time since her ‘Moment Of Truth Tour’ travelled around the country in 1988.

The American singer starts her tour in February 2010 and, today, we are pleased to announce one very special performance at Hope Estate in The Hunter Valley on Saturday, 27 February 2010.

Often dubbed ‘The Voice’, Whitney Houston is renowned as the ultimate soul-pop diva. She has sold over 170 million records in a glittering career, producing world-famous tracks such as ‘The Greatest Love Of All’, ‘Saving All My Love For You’, ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me), ‘My Love is Your Love’, and of course, ‘I Will Always Love You’ – the theme track from her starring role alongside Kevin Costner in The Bodyguard.

Whitney will be performing all of her greatest hits, along with some new songs from her Top 10 comeback album, ‘Look To You’, which was released in Australia in September 2009.

Cited by the Guinness Book of World Records as music’s “most awarded female artist of all time,” with an unsurpassed tally of 411 awards, inclusive of 6 Grammy Awards, 2 Emmy Awards, 23 American Music Awards and 16 Billboard Music Awards…… Whitney Houston remains a singular force in music today.

From one crack addicted singer to another. I dare say she can sing but she's a boring performer. Maybe the drugs will help with that.

Sneaky Spammer.

That preferred seating website is so suspect to me. I'd never buy tickets off there.

I can imagine this is true. There will certainly be enough crack at the party to keep Whitney singing all night long. Bobby! Bobby!!!!!

I've used them before - super reliable if you don't mind paying a little more for the privilege of buying before the general public sales.
