Fiercely talented musician and explosive performer Grace Jones has just announced a one-night-only concert at the Palais Theatre in February next year.

If you're a 'Slave to the Rhythm' of Jones' '80s party anthems like 'Love is the Drug', 'Nightclubbing' and 'Warm Leatherette', then don't miss your chance to see the Jamaican-American artist live as she takes to the stage on Monday February 26. Two years ago, Jones made it Down Under to Vivid Live Festival in Sydney, where she received rave reviews and proved that she's as boundary-breaking as ever. 

You may also know Jones as a model and actress – some of her most notable roles include Bond villain May Day in 1985's A View to a Kill and Zula in 1984's Conan the Destroyer.

For a deeper insight into the diva, check out this extract from her autobiography, where she throws a whole lot of shade at Rihanna, Miley, Gaga and Kanye.

Pre-sale begins Wednesday October 25, and tickets go on sale to the general public on Tuesday October 31 via Ticketmaster.
