Jupiters Leaves a Light on for Belinda Carlisle

Belinda Carlisle will make her way to the Gold Coast this March when she performs at Jupiters Hotel & Casino as part of an extensive national tour. One of the biggest female artists in the world, the pop icon has toured Australia numerous times to sold out shows playing her big solo songs alongside the much loved hits from The Go-Go’s.

Along for the entertaining ride is iconic Australian ‘80s band Pseudo Echo, who will bring to the stage their infectious electronic beats and catchy pop tunes. Best known for the dancefloor-filling track ‘Funky Town’, Pseudo Echo formed in 1982 in Melbourne combining flashy clothes with blow-wave hairstyles and is sure to deliver their signature synth pop when they hit the Coast in March.

Jupiters Hotel & Casino Managing Director Geoff Hogg said that it was a real coup for the theatre to have internationally renowned megastar Belinda Carlisle and special guests Psuedo Echo perform at the venue. “Belinda Carlisle has a name synonymous with talent and style and promises to bring a high calibre and entertaining show to all in the crowd,” Mr Hogg said. “She has proved to be a real stalwart in the music industry, having a career spanning decades with hits across multiple generations. This is a not to be missed event and one that will have people getting up out of their seats and dancing and singing all night long.”

Belinda’s rise to fame started when acclaimed band The Go-Go’s formed in 1978 and recorded a number of hits including “We Got the Beat” and “Our Lips are Sealed” with their first album “Beauty and the Beat” spending six weeks at No.1 in the United States.

After the band broke up in 1985, Belinda embarked on her hugely successful solo career and released her first ever solo album “Belinda” in 1986 producing a hit in “Mad About You”. Her second album “Heaven on Earth” produced the worldwide hit “Heaven is a Place on Earth” which reached No. 1 in both the US and UK charts and No. 2 on the Australian charts. Another top 10 hit followed with “I get Weak”.

Belinda continued to dominate the International charts with the 1989 release of “Runaway Horses” which became a top 10 album and featured the hit songs “Leave a Light On” and “Summer Rain”.More hits were to come, including the 1996 classic “In too Deep” ten years after the release of her first album, showcasing her longevity in the pop music scene.

A constant performer, Belinda Carlisle continues to sell out shows internationally and in March 2013, released her first US single in 17 years titled “Sun” with other compilations and never before released singles to follow.

The March 4 concert will feature a collection of her biggest and best hits and songs from the past and present.
