Lucy Lawless To Stage Own Rock Concert

New Zealand Press Association

9 January 2007

New Zealand actress Lucy Lawless, 38, says she is launching a new career as a rock singer, with her debut in Los Angeles next week.

The concert has already sold out The Roxy Theatre in Hollywood on January 13 with an additional show added for the following night, according to a fan website.

Lawless finished in a close second place on the recent Fox television network series Celebrity Duets where she performed with musical icons Smokey Robinson and Dionne Warwick.

"I've become a junkie for live performance. I can't get enough," she told a website.

Lawless began singing in New Zealand, and toured with Dave Dobbyn in the summer of 2003.

She said on the website earlier this month that her plans to hit the gym over six weeks to transform from "frump to fabulous" were sabotaged by a Christmas trip to New Zealand.

"Usually I go home a broken shell of a woman and this time was no exception, only now I didn't have the will power to resist all those great kiwi sweets, custard tarts, chocolate and biscuits (cookies) that I have loved since I was a child," she wrote.

"Naturally, the relaxation spread to my waist".

Lawless created a high profile on television with six years on two hit series Hercules and Xena: Warrior Princess, and has gone on to star in the science fiction series Battlestar Galactica.
