TOM JONES and THE DIVA’S Tribute show
Featuring Australia’s Got Talent finalists “Joey Ace & Susie Jay” direct from Queensland.
The show begins with Joey Ace who captures the true essence of Sir Tom Jones. The voice, character, the songs, music and costumes leave audiences unbelievably impressed with the accuracy and uncanny resemblance to the great man himself. Joey performs hits such as “It’s Not Unusual” “Green Grass of Home” “What’s New Pussy Cat” “She’s a Lady” “Help yourself” and many other instantly recognisable tunes. Joey does a great job at portraying Tom’s trademark tight fitting wardrobe, swivelling hips and those dulcet tones.
Another fabulous dynamic of this show is the when Tom introduces his special guests ( AKA- SUSIE JAY) on stage and what a treat this is for the audience! Not only do they get to see and hear Dusty Springfield performing hits such as “Only wanna be with you” “Son of a preacher man” ”You don’t have to say you love me” and then Cher makes a rockin appearance followed by Tina Turner who belts out some of her hits like “Simply The Best” “Nutbush” and”Proud Mary.” But wait, there’s more! The one and only Liza Minelli also takes to the stage! The whole show comes to a spectacular climax with a sensational ending, always leaving the audience wanting more.
Feedback from Australia’s Got Talent Finalists Judging panel- “Us Judges all agree “ Joey & Susie you are “Just Brilliant!” The costumes, wigs, feathers, bling and leather pants are just fabulously outrageous! This show has absolutely everything!
