The Pretty Things

^^

When: Wednesday 3rd October
Where: Factory Theatre

After 55 years of live performing, The Pretty Things - the iconic, 1st wave R&B / psychedelic cult heroes, formed by Ex-Rolling Stone Dick Taylor and singer Phil May - will retire from electric performances at the end of this year when they play one final show in London on December 18 with special friends including Van Morrison and Pink Floyd’s Dave Gilmour. Unbelievably, Australia has lucked out and will be witness to some of the band’s final performances. And it may have taken them half a century, but The Pretty Things will be performing for the first time ever to Brisbane, Adelaide, Geelong and Perth audiences. Of course, Sydney gets a show (supported by Pretty Things fans Tumbleweed), and there’s three Melbourne shows including a one-off performance of their landmark Abbey Rd. psych classic, S. F. Sorrow. It cannot be overstated the enormity of the impact The Pretty Things had on the UK music scene when they burst upon it with the dirty garage 1, 2 punch of Rosalyn and Don’t Bring Me Down. Prettier than the Stones and grittier than The Who, the band racked up a huge history of musical and cultural "firsts" – the “longest hair in the world”, first ever rock and roll drugs bust, most arrests of any band, first ever rock-opera, arrested for discharging a sawn-off shotgun, first U.K. band to win Rolling Stone Record of the Year – The Pretty Things are an indelible part of the fabric of popular music and the social influence that it has created.

Panic! At The Disco: Pray For The Wicked Tour

^^

When: Saturday 6th October
Where: Qudos Bank Arena

Making their return to Australia this October for Frontier Touring and performing arena shows off the back of their most ambitious release to date – two-time Grammy nominees Panic! At The Disco are back! Led by frontman Brendon Urie, their long-awaited sixth album Pray For The Wicked drops next week – and now they’re headed down under. ‘Panic! At The Disco wowed... Brendon Urie rocked through a medley of career-spanning hits, from “Say Amen (Saturday Night)” to “I Write Sins, Not Tragedies” – although the most memorable moment came with his rendition of “Bohemian Rhapsody.” He recorded the cover for the Suicide Squad soundtrack and has performed it live before, but nailed it … hitting notes that would make any Queen fan’s jaw drop.’ – Variety, May 2018. Panic! return 13 years after they first burst onto the scene with 2005’s platinum, emo-fuelled debut, A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out. Now, anticipation for Pray For The Wicked is high: just witness the video for rousing first single ‘Say Amen (Saturday Night)’ (the final instalment of a trilogy, following earlier clips ‘This Is Gospel’ and ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’.) Check out the band’s recent, unforgettable live performance of ‘Say Amen (Saturday Night)’ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show here.

Ruel

^^

When: Wednesday 10th October
Where: Enmore Theatre

Emotional, resonant and astounding considering his youthful age of 15, London-born, Australian- raised Ruel’s voice is like the eighth wonder of the music world. He already counts Elton John, Khalid and millions of YouTube streamers as fans and now builds on some seriously snowballing hype by announcing a huge Australasian tour (including dates for all ages in every city) slated for September and October 2018. Showcasing breathless talents that have seen him compared to the likes of James Blake, Frank Ocean and Sam Smith, Ruel is a prodigious talent who is moving ever sharper into focus. His affecting, soul-infused singles Younger, Don’t Tell Me and Dazed and Confused have been praised globally, prompting Sir Elton to describe him as “the most amazing voice that I've ever heard from a male singer at 14 years of age”. This rave was followed up by an interview on John’s massively popular Rocket Hour Beats1 radio show, exposing Ruel to an international audience and resulting in an opening spot on rising American star Khalid’s huge Australian tour just weeks later. All this global attention had seemed inevitable for the Sydney native since he made his official debut via a feature on M-Phazes track Golden Years (a tune he was later to perform at the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony). The collaboration was lined up after Ruel’s father sent a demo to the Grammy winning producer of Ruel singing James Bay’s song Let it Go. M-Phazes reaction? “I lost my mind when I heard his voice!”

Peter Murphy

^^

When: Saturday 27th October
Where: Factory Theatre

Bauhaus 40 year Ruby Anniversary. Featuring special guest - Bauhaus bass guitarist David J. DRW Entertainment is proud to present the return of iconic front man Peter Murphy to Australia for the first time since 2013. Murphy first made his mark up front of influential UK group Bauhaus, who this year celebrate their 40th anniversary. Bauhaus appeared out of the London post-punk scene in 1978 and with their darkly romantic image and brooding songs like the David Jpenned "Bela Lugosi 's Dead ", quickly became the touchstone for the nascent goth movement. Bauhaus, with Peter Murphy at the helm and David J 's soul wrenching bass, helped take goth mainstream, culminating in an appearance in David Bowie 's 1983 film "The Hunger ", noted by Rolling Stone as one of the greatest rock 'n' roll film movie moments of all time. Murphy then set forth on his internationally acclaimed solo career, and his pioneering and long-lasting influence was reinforced when Trent Reznor brought him in as a collaborator and Nine Inch Nails guest in the late 00 's, and when he made a cameo appearance - as "The Cold One " - in "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse " in 2010. Peter Murphy will be reunited with David J on this tour and promises a set comprising the classic Bauhaus debut album In The Flat Field plus other brilliant Bauhaus works such as "She 's In Parties ", "Kick In The Eye ", "The Passion Of Lovers " and of course "Bela Lugosi 's Dead " and their amazing rendition of David Bowie 's "Ziggy Stardust ".

Passenger

^^

When: Sunday 18th November
Where: Enmore Theatre

From humble beginnings to the record-breaking with seven times platinum single “Let Her Go”, the singer-songwriter has performed on street corners and stadiums to a combined audience of millions around the globe. Across his 11 year career Passenger's works have also been recognized across the world, with “Let Her Go” being nominated for a Brit Award, 23 Official No. 1’s, and Rosenberg being awarded The Ivors Novello for ‘Most Performed Work' for the same song. Previous album 'Young As The Morning Old As The Sea' also went to No 1 in 4 countries include Australia, New Zealand and the UK. The new album 'Runaway' is set for release on August 31st and while it was recorded between the UK and Australia, but its aesthetic is North American, thanks in large part to his American father who organized trips back to the States every other summer while Mike was growing up in Brighton, UK. While some songs point to specific locations such as Yellowstone or Detroit, Mike imagined all the new songs unfolding against a backdrop of American landscapes, which led to a month long road trip across the U.S. to create a series of live acoustic versions of each album track, and videos to match.
