Icon stomps back to play Gladstone
MORNING Melodies returns to the Gladstone Entertainment Centre on October 11, with 60s icon Little Pattie taking to the stage. With hits including 'He's my Blond-headed Stompie Wompie Real Gone Surfer Boy' and 'Stompin' at Maroubra', Little Pattie established herself as a prominent force in the Australian music industry.
Today, Little Pattie is as energetic as she was when she took a strong hold on the Australian music scene in the mid 60s as a bright 14-year-old schoolgirl from Sydney.
"I used to tour in Gladstone all the time," Pattie told The Observer.
"I'm really looking forward to coming back and seeing how much it has grown. I hear it's fantastic."
As for revisiting all those old favourites, Pattie said she never tired of it.
"That's the challenge, to approach those old songs in a fresh way every time," she said.
"But I really do love singing them, so I never get sick of it. It's fun."
Little Pattie's show covers several decades of music, as well as different genres, including musical theatre, jazz and rock'n'roll.
The performance starts at 11am. For tickets call 49722822.
