We are Supa-excited to announce a fantastic guest for the November shows in Brisbane and Adelaide; the vivacious and multi-talented Rachael MacFarlane!
November will be a month of firsts when Rachael visits the continent down under. MacFarlane is not only the younger sister of Fox’s animation royalty, Seth MacFarlane, she’s also one of America’s elite voice actors, and has created dozens of characters throughout her career in animation. Most prominent is her nine years as “Hayley”, Stan Smith’s daughter in Fox’s highly rated series, ‘American Dad!’*. In Australia, the series airs on 7mate.
This will be Rachael’s first visit to Australia, and the first opportunity for the local animation fanbase to meet her, pose for studio portraits and receive autographs*, and hear her sing. For the first time ever, Supanova will produce official Closing Ceremonies for each event in Brisbane and Adelaide, at which Ms. MacFarlane will perform songs from her Concord Records release: ‘Hayley Sings’. She will also act as host for the Closing Ceremonies, which should prove to be a very exciting conclusion to each weekend’s festivities.
These two concerts in Australia will be the first time Rachael has performed in this country, following successful tours in Germany, New York, Boston, and Los Angeles. Her singing has been described as having “wonderful phrasing, superb intonation, lyrical and sexy”. Her brother has also been quoted as saying ‘Rachael is the real singer in the family’.
Supanova will provide great package incentives for sales of these special Closing Ceremony concert tickets; details will be announced following Supanova’s imminent Sydney and Perth events.
During her career, Rachael has sung in many animated series including Family Guy, American Dad!, and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, and has imitated the voices of Barbra Streisand, Christina Aguilera, Madonna and Celine Dion, amongst others. Rachael has also recorded three seasons of the brand new, highly anticipated ‘Star Wars Detours’ series for Seth Green, which will be released in 2015 immediately after the new ‘Star Wars’ movie.
Rachael is just the beginning of a huge line-up of Supa-stars who will be joining us for our Brisbane and Adelaide Expo’s watch this space for more updates!
