      Concert publicity
      February 8, 2001
      • TV commercials have begun screening in Perth to promote Petula's concert.
      • Radio 1080 6IX is playing Petula at an ever increasing rate as are other radio stations in the city. Newspaper features will increase awareness of the concert which is selling fairly well. All Perth internet tickets are sold out and the theatre is about 70% full at this stage. Reports indicate that ticket sales are also picking up in other cities as the concerts draw near.
