Buble hottest ticket in town
By MADELINE DOHERTY
KINGSCLIFF and Tweed Coast accommodation is booked out and phones are running hot as the Michael Buble show moves on Salt for Saturday night's concert.
With almost 4000 of the 5000 tickets sold the concert is poised to be the biggest of the international star's Australian tour.
Salt's media spokesperson, Sarah Brisbane, said Mr Buble's first Australian concert in Brisbane on Monday night was outstanding.
"The Brisbane concerts are sold out, so the phones are runing hot here - there is enormous interest.
"He has an amazing ability to connect with the audience - he's down to earth and charming. He certainly is pulling the crowds," Ms Brisbane said.
Mr Buble, described as a crooner in the Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett style, will cruise into the Tweed tomorrow with his band, spending a couple of days relaxing before taking to the stage at Salt's Central Park for the outside concert.
Ms Brisbane said the venue promised to create an unsurpassable atmosphere.
"You have the ocean on one side and mountains on the other, it's going to be unforget-
table," she said.
By Saturday night the team of 100 working on the concert will have built the temporary stage over four days and put everything in place for a show that is causing a lot of excitement.
"Michael is excited about coming here and with tickets left, but going fast, you can still get in," Ms Brisbane said.
Michael Buble will perform once in the Tweed before moving to Sydney where he will perform at the Sydney Opera House.
There are tickets left in all three categories ranging in price from $99 to $125 to $175. To book tickets phone 132849.
