Thanks to the many supporters and friends from all across North America who have made this tour a reality!
"Not only was this show a complete and utter triumph on all counts, but serves as testament to the fact that a chanteuse as riveting and brilliant as Matthews proved on this night should wholeheartedly be welcomed to New York and elsewhere with unabashedly open arms."
“Sharron is one of those rare performers that comes along once in a while and gets notices in a downtown club and builds a loyal following a la Bette Midler.”

Sharron Matthews, Superstar?? Very Possibly, YES!!
|By Andrew Martin|
The simple truth is, one has to hand it to a performer for having the gargantuan chutzpah to appear in a major club, in a major city where she's almost a complete unknown, and bill herself as a superstar. So it goes with Canadian cabaret artist Sharron Matthews. And if her show at Joe's Pub had ever faltered, just for a blessed minute, the outcome would have been unconscionable. It is, therefore, a joy to report that not only was this show a complete and utter triumph on all counts, but serves as testament to the fact that a chanteuse as riveting and brilliant as Matthews proved on this night should wholeheartedly be welcomed to New York and elsewhere with unabashedly open arms.
With her show, Sharron Matthews, Superstar: The World Domination Tour 2010, the lady wholeheartedly shatters each and every rule heretofore established by New York's cabaret hierarchy, to blissfully unending result, and is almost completely guaranteed to continue to cause a fabulous impact and catch the eye.
The Canadian cabaret artist Sharron Matthews made her New York City appearance last Saturday night at Joe's pub. What a debut it was. Sharron took the stage wearing a pink tutu like halter prom dress With 60's style white heels. She is a is a full-figured lady with an amazing full-sized voice. She is a pinch of Ethel Merman and Bette Midler. Her show is deliciously campy and her interpretation of a song is unique and wonderful. Sharron Matthews's personality and talent really shines as she sails through some of the contemporary hits of the 80's. When she combines Shirley Bassey's "Diamonds Are Forever" with Madonna's "Material Girl" she is able to recreate the original sound of both artists. Her voice is so great that she leaves her audience wanting to hear more. Joe's Pub had a full house full of adoring fans that knew her from Canadian Cabaret. She turned the room into a private party. I felt as if she had a personal relationship to everyone in the audience. Sharron is one of those rare performers that comes along once in a while and gets notices in a downtown club and builds a loyal following a la Bette Midler.
