Rumour Has It

Rumour Has It Naomi PriceFollowing standing ovations across the country, Australia’s smash-hit stage spectacular Rumour Has It returns to Melbourne, bigger and bolder than ever, on Friday 28 June 2024.

Starring award-winning British performer Naomi Price in her career-defining tour de force, Rumour Has It charts the astonishing story of soul sensation Adele with the upfront wit and heartfelt tunes that made her one of the highest-selling recording artists of the 21st Century.

Adele’s story comes alive through the delectably brash words of world-class stage performer Price, supported by the stunning vocal talents of Rachel Everett-Jones, Luke Kennedy and Lai Utovou and a 20-piece live band.

Featuring the biggest hits from chart-topping albums 19, 21, 25 and 30 including the titular Rumour Has It, Rolling in the Deep, Hello, Skyfall, Easy on Me, Someone Like You and more, Rumour Has It is an unmissable evening of story and song.

Price said the new production of Rumour Has It promises an unparalleled showcase of Adele’s back catalogue. “The British powerhouse is one of the best-selling artists of all time and her songs hit a high note with audiences of all ages and musical tastes,” said Price.

“We are excited to bring Adele’s biggest hits to life with the magnificent voices and incredible musicianship of the Little Red team and to fill venues with unrivalled energy and spectacle.”

“I’m looking forward to injecting a dose of her daring and playful personality throughout the show and delivering an unforgettable experience for audiences,” said Price.

Rumour Has It debuted as a work-in-development at Brisbane Cabaret Festival in 2012 before making its mainstage premiere at Brisbane’s Judith Wright Arts Centre, winning a 2013 Matilda Award for Best Musical or Cabaret.

More than 85 performances have since delighted audiences in iconic venues including the Sydney Opera House, Adelaide Festival Centre, Hamer Hall, QPAC’s Concert Hall and Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre.

Rumour Has It was co-created by Naomi Price and Adam Brunes and spawned Little Red’s collection of modern songbook adaptations including Wrecking Ball, Lady Beatle, Christmas Actually, From Johnny to Jack, There’s Something About Music and Your Song.

“A joyous, heart-warming celebration of a major musical talent, performed with love, passion and skill by equally talented Australian artists led by the incomparable Naomi Price.” – ArtsHub
