Best Tina moment: Meeting Tina after
I have been a huge Tina Arena fan since 1995 when
she released Chains. Don't Ask was the first major cd
I had ever bought where I only knew the one song, Chains.
However, after listening to it over and over I came
to learn and love the whole cd. And when I saw her "You
Asked For It" tour, I knew I was going. I went
with my best friend Hayley and we were lucky enough
to be in the front row! I was really impressed with
her performance! And I bought every single piece of
merchandise possible!! You should've seen the man's
face when I said "I want 1 of everything!".
When the "In Deep Live" tour was advertised,
Hayley and I physically ran to the counter to get good
tickets. And it was worth it, because people were allowed
to stand next to the stage so we did!
Anyway, Tina did a signing for Soulmate #9 in Borders,
Adelaide and we were about 3rd in line to meet her.
However a reporter was questioning her while she signed
ours, and even though she was really nice, we were kind
When we heard about Cabaret, Hayley and I saved hard
to fly to Sydney to see it. We searched the streets
for the stage door, as we were hoping to meet her. Cabaret
itself was fantastic!! Tina was soo cute and she is
definately a great actress! As soon as Cabaret finished,
we went to the stage door. And then Tina came out. We
gave her a present and she was so stunned and surprised
at this! After she opened it she hugged us both! Then
we each got a signature then we both got our photo taken
Even now, a week and a half later, and I am still reeling!
She was so generous and didn't mind our requests, and
she was happy to talk to us for about 15, 20 minutes!
So, all in all, this has totally restored my faith
in her. I am so proud she's Australian! What a gorgeous
