Delta Goodrem's massively successful first-ever national tour of Australia, Visualise 2005, came to an end in Hobart last night, with Oz's #1 female artist delivering a stellar final show to wrap the tour. Expect to see the Visualise DVD in October!
Delta Goodrem's first-ever national headline tour of Australia has been one fans have been waiting eagerly to see for years, and as the final show of Visualise 2005 concluded last night, it was clear to everyone that it had been more than worth the wait...
Supported by a 100 member cast and crew - including a fully live five piece band, five piece string section, three backing singers, four dancers and occassional guest appearances by beau Brian McFadden on their awesome #1 smash duet 'Almost Here' - Delta was nothing less than breathtaking as she took Australia by storm with her live two hour concert extravaganza that was seen by 80,000 people over the ten show run.
Featuring 300 lights, a massive state-of-the-art sound system, three video screens, a purpose built catwalk, a custom designed stage set and six costume changes, Delta left little doubt she had truly earned her stripes as a world-class live performer. She thrilled her audiences as she sung, danced and played her way through all of the hits and fan faves from 'Innocent Eyes' and latest album 'Mistaken Identity' that have seen her claim the title of Australia's #1 female recording artist.
Delta also managed to break some records with the tour - not only was she the first Australian artist to headline a show at the Sydney Superdome, tickets to the two Sydney shows on Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24 have officially outsold shows by the likes of Destiny's Child, Green Day and 50 Cent, amongst others, in Sydney earlier this year.
In other big news for fans, Delta's Sydney shows were recorded for an upcoming DVD of the Visualise Tour, set for release this October. The DVD is set to include excerpts from the concerts as well as exclusive behind the scenes footage tour - it's going to be huge!
Stay tuned to the website for some exclusive tour photos coming soon.
"...Such an amazing show is a testament to her courage and talent. Let's hope the bar she has set will inspire other local artists to similar heights." The Herald Sun
"A slick and frequently dazzling performance from Australia's reigning pop princess... Beyond all the glamour of this show, it is her music by which she will ultimately be judged. On this showing, she will be around to entertain our grandkids in the arena of her choosing."The Weekend Australian
