When: Thursday February 3, 2000

HOT pop sensation VANESSA AMOROSI will join TAXI RIDE at their Newcastle show next Thursday, February 3, at the Workers Club.

To say that Melbourne-born Amorosi, 18, had the most amazing year in 1999 would be an understatement.

After debuting at number 25 in the ARIA charts with her debut single HAVE A LOOK, she went on to perform in front of 110,000 people at the NRL Grand Final at Homebush Olympic Stadium.

In addition to numerous profiles in teen, music and lifestyle magazines, Amorosi opened the Motorcycle Grand Prix at Phillip Island and performed at the ARIA Awards in Sydney.

After seven weeks in the charts her debut song went gold, soaring to the number one position for an Australian artist, remaining in the Top 10 for 13 weeks.

Recorded in London with STEVE MAC (BOYZONE, FIVE and WESTLIFE), she also worked with GARY MILLER (PETER WATERMAN'S songwriting collaborator, who has written and produced for KYLIE MINOGUE, DONNA SUMMER and JIMMY SOMMERVILLE.) In November her second single ABSOLUTELY EVERYBODY debuted slightly higher at number 22 and has confirmed that Amorosi is anything but a one-hit wonder.

She has already toured with KATE CEBERANO and VIKA & LINDA BULL, performed at the Sydney Opera House for the MOMENTUM PARTY on New Year's Eve, and joins Australia's premier all-male pop group for a national tour. TE
