The Molson Canadian Centre at Casino New Brunswick presents Petula Clark live in Moncton Wednesday, May 23 at 8pm. January 23, 2018 – Petula made her first broadcast as a singer for the BBC Radio Overseas Service in October 1942, and became an overnight star on BBC National Radio in December 1942 at the age of 10. Petula was a recording star in the UK from 1949, with “The little shoemaker”(1954) being her first top 10 hit and “With all my heart” which took her to France where by 1962 she became their top female singer with such big selling hits as “Chariot”, “Coeur blessé” and “Ya ya twist”, securing her the prestigious Grand Prix National du Disque Français. Her song “Sailor” became her first of 2 #1 hits in the UK. Although Petula had recorded an album in Hollywood in 1959 and some of her early songs had limited releases in the USA, it was not until 1965 that she became an overnight sensation with “Downtown” topping the charts, and the first of many appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show. It made her the first British female singer to sell a million copies in the USA and with “My love” first to top the USA charts twice! In Europe and Canada she had self-penned hits “Je chante doucement”, “Que fais-tu là Petula”, “You’re the one”, “L’ agent secret”, and “Bleu blanc rouge”. By 1966, Petula was one of the most popular and bestselling female singers in the world with other hits including “I couldn’t live without your love”, “This is my song”, “Sign of the times”, “Don’t sleep in the subway” and “Kiss me goodbye”. In 1967 she was presented with the “International Award” by the International music industry awards alongside the Beatles and Tom Jones. Petula has given bilingual concerts at the Paris Olympia and Place des Arts in Montreal. She has been a Las Vegas headliner since 1966, with a million dollar contract to headline at Caesars Palace. In 2010 she made a triumphant return to Vegas this time at the renowned Las Vegas Hilton. In 2016 Petula recorded a concert for Arte Television in Germany in one of their popular “Live in Berlin” series to promote her forthcoming album “From now on” .This was shown in Germany and France and also shown by the BBC in the UK. The album hit the UK charts and Petula also toured the UK with 15 dates in October 2016 to further promote the album with her one woman show. In 2017 Petula toured Australia, started recording a new French album in Canada (to be released in 2018) and embarked on an extensive US tour that ended in New York City where she had not performed in concert for many years. The album ‘From now on’ was released in them USA under the title ‘Living for today’ with additional bonus tracks. She will return for a series of concerts in Canada in Spring 2018, with stops in many Quebec cities and English Canada.
