Was it really 25 years ago that she first came to our attention as Brad’s girlfriend Beth in the Aussie soap opera Neighbours?
Sexy as hell, it was inevitable she’d follow in the footsteps of cast members like Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan and launch a pop career. However, she opted for less cheese, biding her time somewhat before releasing the mega hit ‘Torn’ in 1997 – a song first released as ‘Brændt’ (Burned) in 1993 after it was unwisely translated for Danish singer Lis Sørensen.
Twenty years later, she now has five albums behind her. Her most recent, Male (2015), is a collection of covers – a safer option after Come to Life bombed in 2009 upon its Australian release and was not released in the UK, the two-time Brit Award winner and now British citizen’s main market.
So tear yourself away from your prior commitments and join Imbruglia on her 2017 Acoustic Tour.

You know the songs; you know the lyrics. The Honolulu native is leaving the “island in the Pacific” to promote a new album, 24K Magic. Including songs like ‘That’s What I Like’, the dancefloor will be our new home.

This one is for your daughters, as Denmark’s teeny-boppers have really taken to the Canadian who started his career by posting song covers on Vibe. Now Mendes is a regular on the Billboard Top 100 and bedroom walls all over.
