Let PK Entertain You

FIFTY+SA Entertainment Writer, Paul Kitching, shares his most anticipated events in Adelaide this festival season, let PK entertain you!

Paul Kitching – aka PK – from Fuller Brand Communication has been out and about enough over his 50+ years to still have his finger on the pulse for the best things to see, do and enjoy in our excellent state. Whilst we all know life starts at 50, we also know what we like right?! And yes, we are choosy about how we dedicate our precious spare time. With lots on offer, PK reckons these gems are all worthy…

The 60 Four: Living In The ’70s

Angélique Kidjo

Adelaide Festival Theatre 

Tue Mar 12

Set to be one of THE musical highlights of the Adelaide Festival “The undisputed queen of African music” returns to set the stage alight with her addictive tunes and constant energy. I saw her at The Old Lion back in the day and she is one incredible performer. With five Grammy Awards and 16 albums to her name, Angélique Kidjo’s striking voice and stage presence needs to be seen to be believed. This will go off!


Tom Jones


Tue Mar 26

YES Tom Jones is coming to Adelaide! Does the legend need an intro!? The fact THE Tom Jones is playing the newly renovated DRIVE is the icing on the cake. So many memories of this iconic place, get ready to make more as one of the greatest singers and recording artists alive today looks to blow the (new!) roof off this awesome venue. See a real living legend and sing along to all the hits you know you love.


Elvis: A Musical Revolution

Speaking of legends this is the story of a man who gave the world a musical revolution.

You simply can’t help falling in love!


James Taylor

Adelaide Entertainment Centre

Fri Apr 19

Not gonna lie, this is set to be my favourite gig ever. I grew up listening to James Taylor’s warm baritone voice and distinctive style of guitar-playing and can’t wait to see it live. Since his break-out debut album in 1968 the man has sold more than 100 million albums, earning all of the awards. And if you need one more reason to see him – this living legend is the first artist to have a Billboard Top 10 album in each of the past six decades!


TINA – The Tina Turner Musical
