Record-breaking voting sees new stars celebrated on Adelaide Festival Centre’s Walk of Fame
Adelaide Festival Centre's Walk of Fame will feature three new names of accomplished performers in recognition of their artistry and hit shows presented in 2019.
The recipients are ARIA award-winning didgeridoo virtuoso William Barton, Malaysian pop star Siti Nurhaliza and Helpmann award-winning choreographer Frances Rings.
They will join more than 130 names of the great artists who have graced the stages of Adelaide Festival Centre since it opened in 1973 and whose names shine bright on the walkway overlooking the River Torrens.
Receiving a record-breaking number of online votes, Siti Nurhaliza won the public choice vote for her first ever Australian concert at Adelaide Festival Centre's OzAsia Festival last year.
The best-selling singer songwriter, who has sold more than 6 million records and won almost 300 Malaysian and international music awards, attracted audiences from interstate and overseas for one night only in Festival Theatre.
First Nations Kokatha woman, choreographer and dancer Frances Rings received the critics' choice award and rave reviews for her choreographic masterpiece, Unaipon - Bangarra: 30 years of Sixty-Five Thousand.
