Schneider’s unconditional love for Newcastle fans


Multi-Golden Guitar Award winner and chart-topping singer-songwriter Melinda Schneider is heading to Newcastle this weekend.

The balladeer will present Love Songs, an intimate two-hour concert, at Lizotte’s on Saturday 3 September.

It’s a show inspired by the unconditional love Schneider has found with her long-time partner Mark Gable, of The Choirboys, whom she will marry in 2022.

“I’ve been living in un-wedded bliss for the past 13 years with Mark,” she said.

“But, our little boy Sullivan, who is eight, came to me last year and said: ‘Will you please marry daddy?’, ‘I just don’t want anyone else to marry you’.

“How could I refuse such a beautiful proposal?”

In this emotional, intimate and soulful performance, Schneider will perform a selection of her own original love songs spanning her four decades in entertainment together with some timeless romantic cuts from the likes of Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Dolly Parton and more.

She’ll also preview new tracks from her forthcoming 15th studio album to be released in 2022.

According to Sydney Arts Guide, “When Melinda sings ballads, she has the power to make you cry”.

Schneider continues to tour the country every year as a performer, all while writing, recording and advocating for mental health, having shared her own lived experience of it in late-2020.

In recognition of her artistic achievements, she has won six CMAA Golden Guitar Awards and is a two-time ARIA Award nominee and an APRA Award nominated songwriter.

Schneider’s songs have been recorded by numerous artists, including John Farnham, Paul Kelly and the late Olivia Newton-John.

To date, she’s released 14 studio albums, two of which are gold-certified records, and she is closing in on a third with her offering, Melinda Does Doris: A Tribute to Doris Day.

Come and celebrate love with Melinda Schneider at Lizotte’s.
