It is with regret that Lennard Promotions have announced that Irene Cara’s upcoming Australian tour is to be postponed until a later date to be confirmed.
On advice from Irene’s US solicitor the tour’s promoter was advised that Irene is unable to proceed with the tour as some of the key members of her band are now unable to travel. With not enough time for Irene to arrange replacement musicians so she has no alternative than to cancel the tour for the time being. Irene Cara extends her sincere apologies to all her Australian fans and looks forward to rescheduling when the timing allows.
Lennard Promotions presents legendary multi Grammy, Academy and Emmy Award winning singer, songwriter, actor and dancer Irene Cara on her first ever Australian tour featuring her amazing 7-piece band Hot Caramel.
After starting in show business at the tender age of five, the multi-talented Irene Cara went on to dominate the airwaves, silver screens and indeed headlines across the globe during the 1980's with a string of massive hits including Fame, Flashdance, Out Here On My Own and numerous movie rolls, award wins and nominations. This November Australian audiences have the chance to relive Irene's biggest hits and witness the incredibly talented lady in full flight with her incredible band Hot Caramel.
Being Honored by the entertainment industry with an Academy Award, two Grammy’s, a Golden Globe, plus a nod from fans via a People’s Choice won all within the same year might, for some, be considered the pinnacle of a performer’s career. For actress/ dancer/singer/songwriter Irene Cara, who garnered all of these awards for co-writing and performing What a Feeling, the title song from the motion picture blockbuster Flashdance, it simply serves as an auspicious beginning to the productive years ahead.
It was the box office smash Fame, in 1980, which catapulted Irene to stardom. As Coco Hernandez she sang both the title song Fame and the film’s second hit single Out There On My Own, resulting in a multi-platinum soundtrack that shot to the top of the charts. She went on to make Academy Award history that year when, for the first time, two songs from one film were nominated in the same category. Additionally, Irene is the only performer ever to sing two Academy Award nominated songs, Fame and Out There On My Own in one evening. It would be Fame that would go on to win the coveted award that year.
In 1983, for her success with Flashdance, She was presented with five major awards, including "Top Female Vocalist-Pop Singles,""Black Contemporary Female Vocalist-Pop Singles,""Top Pop Crossover Artist-Black Contemporary Singles," and "Pop Single of the Year." As a songwriter Irene’s talent earned her an Academy Award, two Grammy’s, a Golden Globe and a People’s Choice Award for Flashdance…What a Feeling.
She has toured throughout Asia and Europe and made major appearances in Atlantic City and on all the top television shows in Europe, Latin America and Japan. She is currentlyworking on a new cd with an all female band of the most talented musicans very aptley called Hot Caramel. As recently as 2001, she enjoyed a top five duet remake of Flashdance with the Swiss/German rapper DJ Bobo. The new version was a major hit throughout Europe and reached #1 in 7 countries. She has been honored with three lifetime achievement awards since the new millenium.
