She’s been on Neighbours. She appeared in Johnny English. She’s got two Brit Awards. Is she the best thing to come out of Australia since the dual flush toilet? We’re ‘torn’.

Natalie Imbruglia, best known for her chart-topping 1997 cover (!!!) of Ednaswap’s Torn, is coming all the way to Guildford as part of her upcoming tour (although she’s actually lived in Britain for two decades).

Imbruglia is not one to often grace the UK with the delight of a tour, so if you’re even the teeny, tiniest bit interested we’d recommend snapping up a ticket.

It’s also not too often that Guildford finds itself acting as a stage for an artist who has sold over 10 million records worldwide.

She’ll be stopping off at Guildford’s premium live music venue G Live next year, on 10 February, with general tickets going on sale this Friday (22 September). Pre-sale tickets will go live this Thursday (21 September).

The Aussie singer-songwriter will no doubt be performing some of her greatest hits as well as tracks from her latest album, Male. The record, which was released in 2015, is entirely made up of covers of songs originally performed by male artists. Intriguing stuff.

Speaking of covers, it seems as though every time someone realises that Torn is in fact just that, a cover of US rock band Ednaswap, social media goes into meltdown mode.

Natalie Imbruglia was awarded the coveted awards of ‘Best International Newcomer’ and ‘Best International Female’ way back when in 1999 at the Brit Awards.

It was also her presence during this iconic X factor UK audition in 2010 that caused one contestant to punch her friend in the face, after being outraged that her pal had said to Imbruglia: ‘Who are you, may I ask?”

If you fancy getting your hands on tickets to see Natalie Imbruglia in Guildford, keep an eye on the G Live website.

Also, while you’re here, why not have a poke around the star’s own site.
