GWAR

^^

When: Thursday 26th April
Where: Metro Theatre

Attention human scum! Earth's favourite interplanetary warriors, GWAR, are returning to conquer and destroy Australia in APRIL 2018! “The Blood of Gods Tour” continues on into Australia, as your masters and supreme overlords take their one of a kind carnival of blood-drenched death and destruction Down Under. The last time GWAR visited Australia in 2014, they upset the Australian public with the controversial and media-hyped beheading of an effigy of then-Prime Minister, Tony Abbott. The body count will be even higher when GWAR returns to Australia in April of 2018 for more heavy metal carnage. Mark your calendars or leave the country. Blothar the Berskerer had this to say about the upcoming bloodbath: "People of Australia, koala bears, kangaroos, crocodiles, wallabies...lend me your ears...and your skulls, and all of your internal organs...GWAR is coming to turn the Land of Dreams into your worst nightmare. Fire up the barby, we are going to eat Australia!"

Ian Moss: National Theatre Tour

^^

When: Saturday 14th July
Where: Enmore Theatre

Respected as one of Australia’s iconic musicians, Ian Moss delivers an unforgettable sound – not only as a telling soloist on guitar but especially with his silken voice, ringing with clarity and resonating with pure soul. While primarily recognised as an axeman of tenacity and sweet melodic sensibility, Ian’s distinctive vocal is the essential signature of his soulful, bluesy muse – as it has been since his first tentative foray into music during the early 1970s. Born and raised in Alice Springs, Ian started playing guitar in local teenage bands but moved to Adelaide after failing one of his high school years, planning to repeat in the big city. Fate intervened when he answered an advertisement for a guitarist in a shop window in 1973, joining the band that was to become a legend in Australia and that made such an undeniable impact that they are now etched in the Australian music psyche forever. That band was Cold Chisel. Moss has released five incredible and dynamic studio albums – The #1 and multi-platinum, Matchbook, Worlds Away, Petrolhead, Let's all Get Together and Soul on West 53rd. 2018 will bring a new chapter in Ian’s career as he releases the new self-titled studio album, his sixth, and heads to the road for what will be his biggest national tour in decades. In 2007 he told the Sydney Morning Herald, "I haven't made my definitive album yet." Ten years later with his the self-titled Ian Moss, he might have just done that.

Golden Features

Bursting on to the scene with 2014’s debut self-titled EP, featuring hit single ‘Tell Me (feat. Nicole Millar)’, Stell grabbed the attention of genre-busting international artist Porter Robinson who enlisted Golden Features for an official remix of his track Years of War, which clocked up over 1 million plays in just a fortnight. The magic kept coming as Golden Features released his XXIV EP in 2015, led by the haunting single No One featuring Thelma Plum on vocals, which was quickly put on high rotation at triple j and later placed in the station’s coveted Hottest 100. While over on the iTunes charts, the EP went all the way to #1.
