GRAMMY-nominated singer Deborah Cox will head back to Australia in March to perform live as one of the headline acts for the Mardi Gras Party.

Best known for the RnB anthem Nobody’s Supposed to Be Here and dance track Absolutely Not (which featured on the Queer As Folk soundtrack), the Canadian-American singer has been a staple on club floors since breaking into the scene in the late 90s.

Cox last performed at the Mardi Gras Party — which takes place straight after the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade — back in 2002. Her return to the Royal Hall of Industries main stage with an exclusive live performance comes just as her career undergoes a resurgence with a new album in the works.

More than 12,000 partygoers from across the globe will see Cox perform a medley of her hit songs accompanied by high-quality stage production.

Cox joins a Mardi Gras Party line up of performers and DJs including: Conchita Wurst, Courtney Act, Dirty Pop, Ben Manson, Rado, YO! MAFIA, Tracy Young, Mark Picchiotti, Buck Naked, Mark Alsop MA15+, Victoria Anthony, Kitty Glitter, Maze and Masters, Colin Gaff, Haylenise, Seismic and Tanner Derrby.

The Mardi Gras Party is on March 5. Final release tickets for the Mardi Gras Party are on sale now, click here to book.
