Brad bound? Angelina Jolie has left Down Under just in time for the holidays! The 38-year-old actress arrived at an airport in Sydney, Australia, on Friday, Dec. 20, with all of her six children in tow. Brad Pitt’s fiancee has been busy directing her film Unbroken in the area, while Pitt, newly 50, has been finishing his World War II-era film Fury in London.

This Girl Is On Fire! Alicia Keys hit the right note at Arena show

Fourteen-time Grammy® Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and global superstar, ALICIA KEYS, has put on a performance at the all phones arena and  Set the World on Fire.   Tour (presented by Blackberry) to Australia this December, joined by special guest JOHN LEGEND.

Both Grammy Award winning artists and their full bands  has performed and thrilled fans at arena an show in Sydney. Australia marks the final leg of Keys’ Set the World on Fire world tour.

Hitting the stage at 9pm, Keys smashed into her hit Empire State of Mind. Getting to the point, she was quick to follow with Karma.  Fans were on their feet in anticipation and the cheering was phenomenal.

She is comfortable being louder, simpler and straighter. She is happy to role play and play act (even if it adds a layer of cheese to a strong song such as You Don’t Know My Name).

An interesting comparison was her support, John Legend, a songwriter not in her shadow by any means but a performer not made for this room despite his efforts throw to the back stalls.

Notwithstanding movers such as Get Lifted and Used To Love You, his preference for slow building mid tempo soul ballads will be all the more rewarded at his more intimate solo shows, which will take in the Opera House.

All that said, Keys still avoids the flashy stage production, multiple costume changes and ”augmented” live vocals of some of her arena peers. We got dancers but not hydraulics; we got some sequenced instruments but not all taped; we got the glittery dress but only for the finale.
