Legendary American singer-songwriter Melanie is a-comin’ to town. 

If you were there when Woodstock happened in 1969 (unlikely, we figure), you’ll remember Melanie. Even if you don’t, you should. History has it that she’s the one who spawned the neat encore signal of holding up a light to the artist.

 

Best known for chart hits ‘Brand New Key’, ‘Lay Down (Candles In The Rain)’ and ‘What Have They Done To My Song Ma’, Melanie was re-introduced to a new generation when Hilltop Hoods released ‘Nosebleed Section’, which sampled Melanie’s song and recording of ‘People In The Front Row’.

 

The last time Melanie toured Australia in the ’70s, her Melbourne show grew from to two concerts to 12 sold-out dates.

 

Melanie will be appearing at The Clarendon on Wednesday June 18, the Enmore Theatre on Friday June 20, Lizotte’s Newcastle on Sunday June 22, and Lizotte’s Kincumber on Monday June 23. Tickets on sale from 9am Friday March 14 via Ticketek.
