Along with a twelve-piece orchestra led by conductor/drummer Michael Berkowitz and pianist/musical supervisor Billy Stritch, the performance will feature many of Liza’s showstoppers such as “Cabaret”, “Maybe This Time” and “Theme From New York, New York”.
Liza Minnelli first toured Australia in the late 1960’s with Peter Allen and played Chequers Nite Club in Sydney. The last visit to Australia for Liza was with Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jnr. in 1989 with The Ultimate Event.

Alice Cooper returns to Australia with his “Theatre of Death” tour and performs in Perth at Challenge Stadium on Tuesday 1 September 2009.

He has been described as a legend in one’s own time, which is certainly a blatantly abused cliché, but no one has taken a vivid imagination and unusual persona to the people with as much controversy and success as Alice Cooper. Call him Master of Shock Rock, Black Humorist Supreme, or simply one of the era’s great showmen, his mark has been undeniable.

Tickets on sale from Ticketmaster for $99.90 (B reserve) and $129.90 (A reserve).

Ticketmaster online pre sale on now and general public on sale 4 May.
