Celebrate the life and music of one of history’s greatest voices in this Western Australian premiere event! In Perth for two nights only on March 8 and 9.

Experience an unforgettable night of music honouring the legacy of global superstar, Aretha Franklin, staged at a unique, purpose-built concert site at Joondalup’s ECU forecourt.

Narrated and directed by the multi-talented Jada Alberts, ARETHA features outstanding vocalists Emma Donovan, Karen Lee Andrews, Thandi Phoenix, Thndo and Mahalia Barnes, with music direction by Joe Accaria and a nine-piece band.

Groove along to ‘Respect’, ‘I Say a Little Prayer’, ‘(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman’, ‘Think’ and more hits from the woman who broke down barriers and paved the way for generations to come.

Much more than a tribute concert, ARETHA is an ode to the icon’s tumultuous life, charting the highs and heartbreak through a jaw-dropping showcase of Australian talent.
