Acid house hedonists, indie rock ‘n rollers; PRIMAL SCREAM are a band who have built a 30 year career on the art of reinvention and they are bringing their incendiary live show back to Australia, more powerful and engaged than ever. Bobby Gillespie is the consummate rock & roll star. Willowy, wispy and radiating swagger, he struts around the stage, mic in hand like the genetically-engineered love child of Mick Jagger and Jim Morrison. His presence and ability to throw himself into a tune - spinning, sweating, hair plastered over his face, accompanied by trademark hand claps - still thrills crowds and propels PRIMAL SCREAM into a league of their own. PRIMAL SCREAM will always say it with passion and energy and will be wowing Australian fans in February 2018, playing an all-encompassing greatest hit set including tracks from their legendary 1991 album ‘Screamadelica’.

Rag 'N' Bone Man

^^

When: Tuesday 27th March
Where: Enmore Theatre

Arriving in Australia as part of the massive Bluesfest line-up, English singer-songwriter Rag’n’Bone Man will be heading out for an exclusive Sydney sideshow in March 2018. BRIT & Echo Award winner, Rory Graham (aka Rag’n’Bone Man) will embark on the highly anticipated Grande Reserve Tour set to hit the continent in 2018. Performing tracks off his multi-platinum selling album ‘Human’ The Grande Reserve Tour will see Rag’n’Bone Man perform across 23 European countries, as well as Australia and new Zealand throughout February, March, April and May next year. Rag’n’Bone Man released his debut album Human in February 2017 to mass critical acclaim, the album was immediately certified gold and swiftly certified platinum just 3 weeks later having spent 2 consecutive weeks at the number 1 spot in the UK charts. The album has now sold more than a three quarters of a million copies in the UK to date, with the single ‘Human’ selling more than a million copies. The phenomenal success of his single Human around the globe follows years of relentless performing for Rory. At the age of just 15 he started rapping in his hometown of Uckfield and then at 19, encouraged by his father, started singing at local blues nights. His combined love for blues and rap soon developed into something bigger, when he joined Brighton’s hip-hop crew The Rum Committee, regularly travelling up to London to play hip-hop nights in Brixton. The releases of his Blues Town, Wolves and Disfigured EPs earned him huge crowds across the country, firming a dedicated fan base incredibly early on in his career. So far in 2017 Rory has won two BRIT Awards – making him the first BRITs Critics’ Choice Award winner to win Best British Breakthrough Act in the same year - sold out tours across Europe & the UK including three nights at London’s O2 Brixton Academy, and performed on The Graham Norton Show, Comic Relief, Later with Jools Holland, The Jimmy Fallon Show, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. One of the major draw cards of the 2017 Splendour In The Grass lineup, Graham returns to Australia in March 18. The success of Human, which recently went Gold in Australia, has allowed him to pull together a world class live show, replete with pulsing rhythms, divine backing vocals and, of course, that unmistakable voice - sounding more like something from the deep American South than of the British seaside town he calls home. The reaction of Australian audiences to his previous shows has been nothing short of ecstatic, so it’s fitting that the East Coasters in Sydney will be given a chance to witness Rag’n’Bone Man at these exclusive sideshows.

Rose Tattoo & Special Guests

^^

When: Saturday 7th April
Where: The Bridge Hotel

The wise amongst us have always said ”never say never” so with the spirit of that in mind..’here we go again!’. I’m very excited to be going out again as Rose Tattoo, 100% adrenalin fueled Aussie rock ‘n’ roll, played in the traditional Aussie way with passion and total commitment to the moment. As there is no permanent Rose Tattoo line up at the moment, until Demarco gets out, I have assembled the finest bunch of rogues, worthy to wear the colours, to accompany me into the fray. Dai Pritchard on slide off course, in my eyes he has no equal. Second guitar is Bob Spencer, a monster of a player, one of the greatest players I have ever seen and has been a close friend, brother and ally for the past forty years. Mark Evans on bass, his pedigree is enshrined in Aussie rock history.
