The acclaimed Potato Head Beach Club Bali, known for hosting some of the world’s biggest and most diverse and exciting musical acts, welcomes pop culture visionary and music icon GRACE JONES to the Island of the Gods for the first time ever this summer.
A legendary show woman, Grace Jones regularly plays to tens of thousands of people at music festivals internationally, but will headline a more unique show at the Potato Head Beach Club on 8 October, 2016, giving fans access to an unrivaled, intimate experience with the art-pop pioneer.
The American musician, model and actress has been a recognisable figure in the international art and popular culture scene since the early ’70s. After a successful international modeling career, she moved into music by adapting the then-emerging New Wave and Post Disco genres to create a distinctive style all of her own. Her first recordings “Warm Leatherette” and “Nightclubbing” included original tracks such as the anthemic “Pull Up To The Bumper” alongsidecreative, out-of-the-box takes on popular songs such as Sting’s“Demolition Man”, Iggy Pop and David Bowie’s “Nightclubbing” and Roxy Music’s “Love is the Drug”.
In addition to her music, Grace Jones is known for her cult film roles,most notably alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in“Conan the Destroyer”, and the James Bond film “A View to a Kill”.
Grace Jones’ special set is just the latest showcase from an international act taking place on the tropical stage at Potato Head Beach Club. In August 2016, Disclosure and Mark Ronson headline the two-day Sunny Side Up Tropical Festival and previously, Snoop Lion, John Legend, Ellie Goulding, M.I.A and Fat Boy Slim have all performed at the Beach Club.
