Classical Notes: January 30, 2007 Archive

I guess that means her tour with Tom Jones is out of the question...

It seems Dame Kiri TeKanawa has some qualms about sharing the stage with underpants. She bowed out of a scheduled 2005 concert series with Australian songster John Farnham after learning that his more zealous fans sometimes fling their knickers onstage.

Why is a 2005 cancellation in the news now? Because the resultant (inevitable?) breach of contract lawsuit is now in court.

Read all about it.

P.S. In case you were wondering, John Farnham and Tom Jones have indeed shared the stage...in 2005, the very same year Kiri bailed for the aforementioned reason - those unreasonable unmentionables.

Tom: "Hey, John, what are you singing about under there?"
John: "Under where?"

bah dum bah!
