Fools Heaven Is A Place In Chelsea Heights

World-renowned singer-songwriter, Belinda Carlisle, returns to Melbourne this month for her Heaven on Earth tour at Chelsea Heights and Doncaster.

 Known for solo hits like Heaven Is A Place on Earth, I Get Weak, Runaway Horses, Leave A Light On and Summer Rain, Carlisle’s music career began in 1978 as the lead singer for the Go-Go’s – “the most successful all female rock band of all time”. The band rose to fame in the early 1980s, making history as the first all-female chart-topping band to write their own songs and play their own instruments. The Go-Go’s debut album, Beauty & The Beat climbed the US Billboard 200 chart, remaining at number one for six consecutive weeks. The LP sold more than three million copies and was one of the most successful debut albums ever. The Go-Go’s sold over seven million albums in just three years, recording hits like We Got The Beat, and Our Lips Are Sealed before breaking up in 1985.

Carlisle then pursued a solo career, making a name for herself worldwide and releasing seven studio albums between 1986 and 2007. Her first solo album was self-titled and included her hit Mad About You. Carlisle also had songs featured on movie soundtracks like In My Wildest Dreams, which appeared in the 1987 movie, Mannequin. Her hugely successful second solo album Heaven On Earth (1987) became a top 5 bestseller in the UK and Australia, including top 10 singles Heaven Is A Place On Earth, I Get Weak and Circles In The Sand. Her third album, Runaway Horses (1989) featured hit singles Runaway Horses, Leave A Light On and Summer Rain.

Carlisle has released 4 more studio albums over the years, namely Live Your Life Be Free (1991), Real (1993), A Woman & A Man (1996), and Voila (2007). Since 1992, she has released another seven compilation albums, The Best of Belinda/Her Greatest Hits being the most popular hitting number one on UK charts.

More recently, Carlisle was on the eighth season of Dancing with the Stars in 2009, and joined the cast of Hairspray as Velma Von Tussle in London’s West End production between October 2009 and January 2010. She has also published an autobiography, Lips Unsealed, reaching 27 on The New York Times Best Seller list in 2010. The extremely talented performer also received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as a member of the Go-Go’s on August 11, 2011, before touring the US with the band in 2011 and 2012 and releasing another single in March this year entitled Sun – featured on the new greatest hits album ICON.

Belinda Carlisle returns to Melbourne for shows at The Chelsea Heights Hotel and the Shoppingtown Hotel in Doncaster on November 22 at 8pm and 23 at 7pm respectively. Expect to see a mixture of old and new, with a line up of Carlisle’s biggest and best hits, as well as her newer releases! Tickets are available from Ticketmaster for $60 (standing room only).
