Sir Michael launches his new show in Sydney

Sir Michael Parkinson will soon arrive to tour Australia in Parky, The One-Man Show, an evening with Michael Parkinson live on stage, when he will relive the best of his guests and their greatest moments on screen beginning on 12th October.

Parkinson's broadcasting and television career spanned 40 years before his retirement last year. Now, the legendary chat show host will share his anecdotes about the famous, in a stage show, supported by video clip highlights from his career. His 2008 autobiography and CD "My Life in Music" have been huge sellers and did anyone really expect Parks to retire quietly ?
After all, he has to do something between cricket matches.

 The Shuttle caught up with Sir Michael and Lady Mary (she gently chides people when greeted with her title) at the launch of the Moonlight Cinema in the Botanic Gardens earlier this year. The Parkinsons have owned a harbourside apartment in Rushcutter's Bay for 20 years and spend nearly 2 months of the year here over summer. They confided they planned to spend far more time here to be with their daughter and grandchildren who moved to Australia 10 years ago.
The Shuttle  plans to join Parky for lunch at Doyles in Watson's Bay 2 days before Michael begins his Aussie tour.
