Singing up a storm - Lisa Marie Presley is pure entertainment
April 4, 2014
Lisa Marie Presley and her five-piece band played to a full house at Hurstville Entertainment Centre on Thursday night.
It was the last of the Memphis-born singer’s Australian shows for her Storm and Grace world tour promoting her album of the same name.
The only child of Elvis Presley, Lisa Marie wowed the audience of fans, aged from eight to seniors, who cheered and laughed at her jokes and banter between songs and her disbelief at the size of spiders and crocodiles in Australia.
One fan arrived as a Lisa Marie look-alike and another fan took home one of the drumsticks she threw into the crowd after her last song.
Presley reclaims her roots on her latest album, Storm and Grace.
Rolling Stone magazine has said that ‘‘Storm and Grace is the album she was born to make — a raw, powerful country, folk and blues collection that finds her embracing her southern roots and family name’’.
