Anthony Callea to headline Glitter Festival

Gold Coasters will be able to enjoy Anthony Callea’s soaring vocals when he takes to the stage at Glitter Festival next month.

Backed by a six piece live band, the ARIA award winning and multi-platinum artist will make his Glitter Festival debut with his hit show Ladies & Gentlemen: The Songs of George Michael at the Arts Centre Gold Coast on Saturday October 8.

In 2014 Anthony performed The Songs of George Michael in front of a sellout crowd at The Palms at Crown in Melbourne. This concert sold out months in advance, and what was meant to be a one off performance turned into a national tour, a TV special on Foxtel and a LIVE DVD which debuted at Number 1 on the DVD Aria Charts.


Anthony will perform many of George Micheal’s hits including Careless Whisper, Too Funky, Faith, Jesus to a Child, Father Figure, Outside as well as relive the early days of WHAM!

Tickets to Ladies & Gentlemen: The Songs of George Michael are on sale now. For more information visit:
