He’s the platinum-selling artist whose undeniable vocal-gift and engaging boy-next-door charm took the nation by storm and now, Stan Walker is set to take the stage at Jupiters Hotel & Casino.
In what promises to be an impressive yet intimate show on November 20, Walker will woo audiences with the soulful sounds of his latest hit album, Truth & Soul, as part of his landmark Australian tour.
The exclusive event will see the popular artist joined by an incredible line-up of talent, including The Voice Australia’s Scott Newnham, brother and vocalist Russ Walker, and hip-hop/street dance duo The Oneill Twins.

Managing Director Queensland Geoff Hogg said it seemed only fitting to welcome the former Gold Coast local back to where it all began, before Walker won Australian Idol and the hearts of the nation in 2009.
“Jupiters continues to place a huge emphasis on establishing the Gold Coast as an entertainment hot spot and Stan’s personal connection to the coast means this will be a show like no other,” he said.
“We’ve watched him transform over the years, as he’s developed from an effervescent raw talent into a multi-faceted artist with true direction and determination, and we’re incredibly proud to welcome him to the Jupiters Theatre stage. You can guarantee that this is not just any performance for him, but an intimate affair that will share his evolution as an artist.”
The soulful display will continue on the back of Walker’s success as a judge and mentor in the recent X Factor New Zealand series.
Walker, who’ll perform a roll call of soul giants and a couple of left turns, said the performance would present the opportunity for him to literally show his soul to the world.
“From Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder and Otis Redding to Bob Marley and Maxwell – these are the songs I’ve loved forever and I’ve fallen in love with all over again,” Walker said.
“They’ve always been with me and played a role in transforming me into the artist I am today so I wanted the chance to really make them my own. On the stage is where the songs really come together.”
Tickets to Stan Walker Live at Jupiters Hotel & Casino will go on sale 9.00am, Thursday September 3.
