Alan Jones Sings on Stage With André Rieu


2GB Broadcaster Alan Jones Sings We Are Australian With André Rieu

He is Sydney's biggest radio show host but Alan Jones last night put his singing voice to the test joining violinist André Rieu on stage to belt out an iconic Australian tune. Jones, who has battled illness for the past few months performed We Are Australian in a mixture of song and spoken words at the Acer Arena Concert in Homebush last night. Dressed in a cream suit with an open neck pink shirt, and with a folded pink silk handkerchief in his pocket, and looking better than he has for some time, he was warmly received by his radio audience made manifest in the flesh.

They joined in the chorus with gusto and listened respectfully during the verses. With a John Travolta like pointed finger, Jones pointed out the Australians in the audience. Only slightly ragged in the closing verses, he acquitted himself well with a roar of appreciation and a standing ovation from the audience as they called out for more! He obliged by giving them another chorus of the song. Rieu and Jones hugged before Jones left the stage, with Rieu shouting out "Aussie, Aussie, Aussie," to which to audience responded with a hearty "Oi oi oi".

Dame Edna Everage also wowed the audience, performing the theme song from Neighbours, in honour of Rieu's appearance on the popular Australian soap earlier this year. ~ by Maureen Shelley. Thanks to Jann for sending this!!
