DavidHasselhoff The Hoff will bypass Darwin on his next tour. Themanwho gave teenage boys Pamela Anderson and Carmen Electra will visit Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane in February 2013. His performances have been described as an intimate, hilarious evening of song, dance and audience interaction. Well have to take their word. Muso finds cave art also rocks Kenny Rogers with Jawoyn elder Margaret Katherine MUSIC legend Kenny Rogers remained in the Top End to take a look around after his history-making Darwin concert at the amphitheatre. The avid photographer and his crew took a helicopter into the bush to take in some of the sights, including our historic rock art. An industry insider said Rogers was at the sacred Garbarmung Cave all day on the Sunday after his concert, accompanied by Jawoyn elder Margaret Katherine. The touring party included band members who have been with Rogers for more than 30 years. The source told ConfideNTial the group rated their visit to the Territory among the top two of all time. It was Rogers first visit to the NT in his 55-year career and it was fitting he left with a lasting impression. It was likely to be his last trip Down Under as he wants to spend more time with his family. Inflight fall turns bloody Charlie King ONE of Darwins most wellknown radio presenters had a rude awakening when flying home after completing the job of a lifetime. ABC radios Charlie King was on a flight to Darwin after covering the London Olympics when he woke up to find fellow ABC sports broadcaster Shannon Byrne covered in blood on the seat next to him. I woke up thinking wed been hijacked by terrorists or something, King said. But it wasnt nearly as dramatic as that. It turns out Byrne had a nasty turn while using the inflight lavatory. She wound up with a broken nose that required surgery. She had fainted in the toilet and fell against the door, King said. Shes OK now after an op. Byrne began her career in Darwin hosting Grandstand with King and NT News sports journalist Ian Butterworth before moving on to greener pastures in Sydney about five years ago. Bums, boobs in the frame Mark Hamilton Darwin girl Rachael Abbott was photographed by Mark Hamilton and appeared as a Sunday Stunner in the Sunday Territorian ONE of Darwins most prominent glamour photographers is on the prowl for lady bits in Darwin. Picture and People magazine freelance snapper Mark Hamilton posted on Facebook that he wants: Nothing too out-there just boobs and bum stuff easy! Vjs can be hidden with the cross of a leg. The pay is $1000 for an hour in front of the lens. I do raunchier stuff with my models in the studio, he said. You can even use a fake name and location i.e. Becky Smith from Rabbit Flat, LOL. So far this week we have had two English girls, two French girls and an Irish girl. One respondent said: After seeing what happened to (model) Ellen Musk when she did a naked photo shoot Im not sure about it . . . Darwin is a small place. But Hamilton replied: Ellen used her real name and let everyone know that was her mistake. In response to one breast-sensitive enquirer, he said: We would spraytan the hell out of you so boobs dont stand out so much.
