Grace Jones is returning to Australia for a one-night-only show at Melbourne's Palais Theatre, Monday, February 26th, 2018. It's been two years since Jones last performed in Australia at Sydney's Vivid Festival, and even longer since she performed in Melbourne — coming on seven years.

The artist was the subject of this year's hotly anticipated documentary Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bambi, shot over a period of five years. Filmmaker Sophie Fiennes was granted unprecedented access to Jones' personal life, and family home in Jamaica. "This film began in a collaborative creative spirit," Fiennes explained in a press release. "Grace had fiercely controlled her public image, but made the brave decision to unmask."

Presale tickets will be available here from 10AM Wednesday the 25th, with general public tickets going on sale Tuesday, October 31st. Until then, brush up on this classic.
