Vivid Sydney, Carriageworks, and Modular Music are thrilled to announce that fashion and music icon Grace Jones will perform a third and final concert as part of Vivid Sydney on Tuesday 2 June. With the first two concerts close to selling out, organisers have confirmed the internationally lauded music superstar will perform a third night exclusively for Vivid Sydney, the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas, owned and managed by Destination NSW, the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency.
The Tuesday 2 June concert at Carriageworks will follow concerts on Sunday 31 May and Monday 1 June. Tickets to the third concert go on sale today, Monday 18 May at 10am. This will be Jones’ only Australian appearances and her first visit to Sydney since her sell-out shows in 2011. Modulations has been delighted by the enthusiastic response from Sydney audiences as tickets have been in high demand to see the music superstar in this intimate setting for her Sydney-exclusive performances.
Carriageworks Director, Lisa Havilah said, “Grace Jones has a large and loyal following in Australia so we are thrilled to add a third concert to the Modulations program. One of the most influential artists of her generation, Jones is one of the original female music industry pioneers and a true cultural innovator of our time.”
Modulations Creative Director Stephen Pavlovic said Jones is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential music and fashion icons of the 20th century, and her reputation for electric on-stage performances makes this a must-see music event. “Grace Jones at Modulations will be a rare opportunity to experience a true music legend in the intimate and immersive spaces at Carriageworks. A truly iconic singer, songwriter, model, actor and all round enigma. Her live sets are duly renowned as nothing short of incredible, segueing from disco to funk, from pop to punk, all presented within a visual spectacular as stunning as the musical artistry. Grace’s performance promises to be unmissable.”
Modulations returns with an expanded program this year set across two jam-packed weekends promising six days of exclusive music performances, contemporary ideas and innovative food experiences as part of Vivid Sydney.
Vivid Sydney transforms the city into a colourful canvas of light, music and ideas for 18 nights from 22 May to 8 June.
