Simple Dreams - The Songs of Linda Ronstadt

22 Jan 2017 - Capitol Theatre

Long regarded as one of Australia and New Zealand’s finest talents from Theatre to Cabaret, Angela Ayers has had a longing to stage her tribute to an artist she’s long admired, Linda Ronstadt.

Very few artists can claim to have sung Folk, Rock, Pop, Musical Theatre and Opera, but Linda has done it all!  Angela weaves her way through Linda’s famous songs linking humorous stories and events with hits such as; Silver Threads and Golden Needles, Different Drum, Blue Bayou, It Doesn’t Matter Anymore, Desperado, Just One Look, Poor Poor Pitiful Me and dozens more. The beautiful ballads of the Gershwin great Someone To Watch Over Me and Grammy Award song from the movie An American Tale, Somewhere Out There are a stand out.

Review from The Globe Theatre in Palmerston North NZ said; “this show should not be missed, it is a knock-out performance featuring Angela’s superb vocals and her backing band The Stoned Brumbies.”

Her backing band The Stoned Brumbies, are some of Sydney’s finest musicians. Angela says, “Linda has played an enormous part in my journey as a performer and it is an honour to bring these songs to the stage with such a superb band behind me”.
