Croatian pop star Jelena Rozga is heading downunder to Australia this month to play three concerts.
Rozga, who as a teenager in the 1990s made her name as the singer in the mega-popular group Magazin, will play three concerts this month in Sydney, Canberra, and Melbourne.
Rozga will start her Australian Tour in Sydney with a concert at the Croatian Club – Punchbowl next Saturday on 17 March.
She will then head to Canberra to play at Croatia Deakin Soccer Club on 23 March, before finishing her tour in Melbourne at the Melbourne Knights stadium on 24 March.
We caught up with her before she left Croatia.
What are you looking forward ahead of your tour of Australia?
There are so many things to look forward to! It’s my first ever time performing in Australia and I’m having not 1 but 3 concerts! The Sydney show is already sold out so I’m really looking forward to that. I’m also so excited to meet my Australian fans and to see the Croatian community there.
It will be your first visit to Australia, what have you heard about the country?
This is my very first time visiting. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about Australia – mostly how beautiful it is and that there is no place quite like it, and now I will finally get to experience it!
What can fans expect from your concerts?
I love what I do. I absolutely adore singing live in front of my fans and that really shows when I’m performing so they can expect nothing short of a great and unforgettable night.
Will you have much free time to see the sights?
I have a few days of free time which I’m definitely going to take advantage of. We’re going to plan carefully so we can get the most out of each day and see/do as much as we can!
Do you have a message for fans in Australia?
I want them to know how excited and thankful I am for the opportunity to perform in Australia for them and get ready for an amazing night!
Lots of people have asked will you hop over to New Zealand since you will be close?
I wish we had more time and visit more cities in Australia and also in New Zealand, but unfortunately, we have to go back to Europe. For the first time, it is ok to have those 3 concerts, let’s leave something for next year!
