It has now been over 50 years since Marcia first arrived in Australia to join the cast of Hair and to celebrate her extraordinary career the tour is called 'Still Shining' and acknowledges the 22 albums and 2.6 million copies sold as well as the countless charttopping singles that have been a major part of her career. Marcia was Australian Idol's favourite judge for the original show for seven consecutive years and returned to the judging panel in 2024 for the Seven Network's new version. She was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2007 and given the Order of Australia (AM) in 2009 in acknowledgement of her services to the Australian entertainment industry.
This legendary former 'Queen of Pop' shows no sign of letting up! The hit Fringe Festival stage production of Velvet has travelled the world with Marcia in the starring role. 2024 sees her returning to the theatre stage in the role of Teen Angel in the new John Frost/Crossroads production of GREASE, and this after her previous starring roles in Saturday Night Fever and Shrek the Musical.
Marcia's love affair with Australian audiences continues in 2024. The album Still Shining - The 50th Anniversary Ultimate Collection was released in June 2023 and in November of that same year, The Gospel According to Marcia was released in celebration of her musical roots and journey from her childhood in Boston and her experiences with church and gospel music.
This tour is another highlight for the extraordinary Miss Hines and her never-ending career inventions. A musician, an amazing singer and a beloved member of the Australian theatre and music community. In her own words 'There are still many rivers to cross!'
