Heidke's glittering one-night show

Award-winning multi-talented Kate Miller-Heidke will perform a glittering one-night show on Sunday December 6 at Munro Martin Parklands, hot on the heels of releasing her fifth album, ‘Child In Reverse’ last month.

The Brisbane-based singer-songwriter’s sweet yet deceptively powerful voice can most easily be brought to mind by recalling her three-times platinum tearful ballad ‘The last Day on Earth’, which made it to number three on the Australian charts in 2009.

With her four previous albums she has achieved multi-platinum status, appeared in the top 10 album and singles charts numerous times and has been nominated for numerous ARIA awards.

As if being a multi-platinum pop star wasn’t impressive enough, Miller-Heidke is also a classically trained singer and composer, performing in the New York and London operas, as well as writing her own opera ‘The Rabbits’ and collaborating on the music and lyrics to ‘Muriel’s Wedding: the Musical’ which both toured to sold out crowds across Australia in 2015 and 2019 respectively.

In 2015 Miller-Heidke broke into national television, featuring in The Divorce, a four-part ABC mini-series and was recently crowned fan favourite for her performance as The Queen, on hit TV series ‘The Masked Singer’ in 2019.

Miller-Heidke was also Australia’s representative at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, where her heartfelt performance and the out-of-this world staging won her a top ten placing.

Now, having just released her first pop album in six years, ‘Child In Reverse,’ Miller-Heidke said she was excited to return to pop.

“I keep getting drawn back to pop music. The minimalism, the economy... I find that incredibly rewarding and challenging. It’s like a quest to nail the perfect pop song. When it can be done, for me, as a listener, it’s my favourite music,” said Miller-Heidke.

Kate has been widely praised for her unique ability to combine moving, heartfelt songs and laugh out loud humour.

 “She’s classically trained, yet her style crosses contemporary pop, folk and opera. Her songs are stamped with witty humour and poignant insight - always touching,” said a Sydney Orchestra spokesperson.

To experience Kate’s masterful song writing and ethereal voice in an outdoor venue unlike any other, book now through www.ticketlink.com.au and remember, ‘Buy Together to Be Together’. Tickets are $ 59 (Adult) or $49 (Concession/Youth).

Concert goers are invited to bring along a picnic, low set chair or rug and take advantage of the onsite food vendors and licensed bar.
