While Philippine singers and entertainers abound, few are at par with artist extraordinaire, Jun Polistico.
After years of absence from the Australian scene, Jun Polistico returns to Australia and promises to entertain his audience better than ever. Jun will be performing in Sydney at the Marconi Club on September 22, 2018, and at Spring Vale Club in Melbourne on September 23, 2018.
Polistico is simply class and undoubtedly the Philippines’ best! Dubbed as the Frank Sinatra of the Philippines, he’s the crooner with the golden voice. Yet ever so humble, Jun simply quips, “I owe it all to the One up above who continues to bless me.”
Polistico was born in Ormoc, Leyte and with his velvety tones, he skyrocketed to fame in the 70s. He was the star attraction at the nightclub circuit in the Philippines – from Kudos to Hilton, Philippine Village and many others. In 1975, he was the chosen entertainer for the Ali-Frazier Fight, “Thrilla in Manila”.
He later joined the Society of Seven band in the USA and sang his way up and down Las Vegas strip. He returned to the homeland and slipped right back as Philippines’ number one male vocalist in the country with hit songs, “Mahiwaga” and “Sana’y Walang Wakas”. He has also toured Australia numerous times between 1999 and 2001.
What makes Jun Polistico a cut above the rest is his unparalleled charm as an entertainer.
As a performer, he simply oozes with emotions with every song he sings, each note caressing as he belts out classic ballads from yesteryears as well as some of today’s top hits.
He continues to perform in hotels in the Philippines and was recently awarded the Lifetime Achievement award by the Philippine Entertainment industry ALIW Awards during their 40th anniversary.
Singer, recording artist and entertainer Polistico continues to thrill audiences in the Philippines and around the globe. Jun Polistico is a rare breed of talent, undoubtedly the Philippines’ best. “I’m looking forward to singing for Filipinos in Sydney and Melbourne. It’ll be good to be back in Oz” said Jun.
Headlining on the Polistico show will be local artists in Sydney and Melbourne.
