MELBOURNE — Wicked Pictures will be helping Aussies get fired up for Valentine's Day as the main sponsor of brand new adult expo Live 08, set for Feb. 7-10 at the Grand Pavilion of the Royal Melbourne Showgrounds.

"We were approached by this fairly new company who is putting together this sort of Lifestyles-meets-Erotica LA type show," Wicked VP of special projects Joy King told AVN. "It actually looks to be a pretty neat event. They've got a lot of entertainment, and they've got this huge band out there called the Rogue Traders performing, and it's supposed to be super-cool.

"There's also a big band called Kisstroyer, they're a Kiss cover band," King continued, "and they'll be performing along with their version of the Cirque du Soleil; they call it Cirque de Vie. And the girls will be announcing the bands on stage, and they will actually do one performance with the Cirque de Vie where they'll be incorporated into the show."

Carmen Hart and jessica drake are the two Wicked girls who will be making the journey Down Under, and in addition to their on-stage duties, they'll be available for autographs and press throughout the four-day expo.

Other attractions during the event will include "Burlesque-a-rama" shows, roving street performers and an international food market featuring cuisine from over 12 different countries.
