    ARIA Hall of Fame inductee

    On 25 October ARIA announced that Tina Arena was due to be inducted into their Hall of Fame. To further honour her, and previous inductees, the ARIA Hall of Fame Walk was established on 6 November with Arena as the first artist to be featured. At the ceremony she was introduced by Kylie Minogue, also a Hall of Fame inductee, and was presented the trophy by cyclist, Cadel Evans. Arena performed a new version of her 1994 song, "Chains", which featured Jessica Mauboy and the Veronicas on co-lead vocals. Arena released the performance as a single, which debutted at No. 14 on the ARIA Singles Chart.

    In her acceptance speech Arena wanted to "acknowledge that ladies over 40 are still in the game" she specifically named Minogue, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and Annie Lennox; she continued "Keep doing what you're doing, ladies, because we will decide when it's time for us to stop." She also voiced her concern about support for local artists by broadcasters, "Radio please don't try and meet your Australian quotas because you have to, exceed them because you really want to".
