Kiki Dee

Join the legendary Kiki Dee for a special, intimate performance as she celebrates five decades as one of the most prolific recording and touring artists in the UK.

Following sell out performances in the UK, Kiki Dee brings Australian audiences the most memorable songs of her illustrious career including I Got The Music In Me, the hauntingly beautiful Amareuse, True Love - one of the most requested wedding waltzes of all time and of course the smash hit Don’t Go Breaking My Heart. With 12 Albums, 4 EP’s and 40 Singles to her credit, Kiki’s repertoire also includes tributes to Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, The Everly Brothers and a host of other great songwriters of our generation. Her performance at the historic Live Aid concert at Wembley stadium is a milestone in her long career.

Other hit songs include Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, How Glad I Am, On a Magic Carpet Ride and Star, which later became the theme music to the BBC TV programme Opportunity Knocks.

In the early 1990s, Kiki joined forces with songwriter, producer and guitarist Carmelo Luggeri, who had worked with Bill Wyman, Julian Lennon, Andy Williams, Paul Rodgers, Kenney Jones, Ray Cooper, Chris Rea and Ralph McTell. Carmelo produced some bonus tracks for The Very Best of Kiki Dee album, and, having hit it off musically, they took on a new musical direction together, playing acoustic concerts.

Touring together over the last 18 years, their first release in 1995 was the live album Almost Naked, which was recorded whilst on tour with violinist Vanessa-Mae.

It was a shock at first to perform just the two of us, said Kiki, I remember bursting into tears after our first tour date, but it soon felt good to have the freedom of working with just a voice, guitar and keyboards and writing songs while on the road.
