Could Amy Shark’s Warrnambool show break ticket sales records for Paul’s Kelly’s two recent shows at the Lighthouse Theatre? Today, the award-winning Australian singer-songwriter announced his biggest tour to date, with shows only in regional areas, including a stopover in Warrnambool. She is performing at the Lighthouse Theater on July 19, with tickets on sale from 10 a.m. tomorrow. The Lighthouse Theater Warrnambool’s acting service manager, Amanda Kenneally, told The Standard that the venue is planning a “really big” matinee of ticket sales and the chance to sell out. “Who knows if she can beat Paul Kelly’s record of 18 minutes for the general public,” Ms Kenneally said. Kelly performed at Warrnambool last week. IN OTHER NEWS Shark’s national tour takes him to more than 40 cities and towns in every state and territory from May through August. The musician is known for the hits I Said Hi and Everybody Rise. She earned nine 2018 ARIA Award nominations and four wins, including Album of the Year, Best Female Artist and Best Pop Release. The tour follows the conclusion of his major city arena tour. Ms Kenneally said it was quite nice to see the artist perform on location. “We have a state-of-the-art facility that recently had upgrades to its sound and light system,” she said. “We’re fierce competition right now, being able to get Paul Kelly (with two sold-out shows), Human Nature (doing two shows in May) and now Amy Shark.” “We are delighted to be able to get such a great performer, but we are also in a really lucky space as we are the only performing arts center between Geelong, Mount Gambier and Ballarat.” Ms Keneally said there was no indication a second show would be announced if the first sold out. The capacity is 583 seats. Tickets are $91.50 per person or, if purchased at the door, $95. Tickets can be purchased on the Lighthouse Theater website at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesdays and at the box office at 11:30 a.m. Our reporters work hard to provide local, up-to-date news to the community.
