Whitney Announces National Australian Tour!
30 November 2009
Following on from the announcement last week of her special one off show at Hope Estate Winery, Whitney will also be performing in arenas around the country, kicking off in Brisbane on February 22nd 2010.
Whitney Houston is the ultimate soul-pop diva and the only artist to chart seven consecutive #1 Billboard Hot 100 hits ("Saving All My Love For You," "How Will I Know," "Greatest Love Of All," "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)," "Didn't We Almost Have It All," "So Emotional," and "Where Do Broken Hearts Go").
Among Whitney's other record-setting achievements: she is the first female artist to enter the Billboard 200 album chart at #1 (her second album, Whitney, 1987); and the only artist with seven consecutive multi-platinum albums ("Whitney Houston", "Whitney", "I'm Your Baby Tonight", "The Bodyguard", "Waiting To Exhale", and "The Preacher's Wife" soundtracks, and "My Love Is Your Love").
In fact, The Bodyguard soundtrack is one of the top 10 biggest-selling albums of all-time (at 17x-platinum in the U.S. alone), and Whitney's career-defining version of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" is the biggest-selling U.S. single of all-time (at 4x-platinum).
With over 170 million combined album, singles and videos sold worldwide during her musical career, Whitney Houston has established a benchmark for superstardom that may never be eclipsed.
Whitney’s Australian concert performances will see her performing all of her greatest hits, along with new songs from her recent Top 10 album, 'I Look To You', showcasing why she remains a singular force in music today and one the worlds most beloved pop icons.
Supporting Whitney in her Australian Arena shows is one of Australia's most recognized singers and performers, Anthony Callea.
