MAJOR EVENT:

THURSDAY 18 JANUARY 2018

“PAPA ROACH: CROOKED TEETH TOUR 2018” - USA alternative rock band Papa Roach confirm their first ever headline shows in Australia for January 2018, first stopping in Brisbane before taking to the stage for two nights in a row in both Melbourne and Sydney. Papa Roach have performed previously on Australian shores in 2002 as support to Red Hot Chili Peppers and returned again for Soundwave 2015. Papa Roach released it's 9th studio album May 19, 2017 to critical acclaim with the lead single HELP a global top 10 hit and American Dreams currently #3 in the USA Rock charts. The band is currently on a sold out headline tour of Europe and they are excited to see their Aussie fans for the first time for their own headline shows. Papa Roach has released 20 top 10 hits in their home country including Last Resort, Scars, Forever, Face Everything and Rise, Gravity and HELP.

Commenting from Europe, lead singer Jacoby Shaddix said this is the first time we have been able to bring our show to the people of Australia. We know that Aussies are some of the best fans in the world and we have not been able to tour there as much as we had hoped but our label Sony convinced us that we had to come over and start the process to build our base and we are more than ready for the challenge.

The internet has been a great tool and our fans are still finding us through YouTube and now Spotify helping us regenerate our audience after nearly 20 years as a band. Our streaming numbers are pretty undeniable and they are growing rapidly. The Tivoli Thurs 18 Jan. Doors open 7pm. Papa Roach

“SUNNYBOYS” - Remarkable to believe that the 2018 edition of Sunnyboys (featuring all original members) have existed longer than the bright-eyed young men who burned so brightly back in the eighties but also burned-out so fast.

And play live they will, as this summer Sunnyboys will be performing a series of headline shows across venues big and small, regional and urban and ALL of them expected to sell out.

The band will be performing material from across their entire catalogue including their three albums for Mushroom, the infamous debut ep on the Phantom label and even the odd b-side or rarity. For the Sunnyboys, every show is a celebration. The Tivoli Thurs 25 Jan. Doors open 7:30pm. Sunnyboys

“Paul Kelly” - The trademark of a great artist is one who creates pictures that are scorched into our memory and come back to us clearly whenever we hear “those songs”. Paul Kelly has written “those songs” over 350 times in his lengthy career. Over thirty five years, Paul Kelly has released 18 albums, 5 film scores, co-written with Nick Cave, Kev Carmody and Yothu Yindi, and written for Jenny Morris and Renee Geyer. He has never stood still musically, performing and recording with bands like The Dots, The Messengers, The Coloured Girls, Professor Ratbaggy, the Stormwater Boys and his acoustic A-Z shows with his nephew Dan Kelly.

He has recently released his memoirs in a book, (“Paul Kelly – How to make Gravy”) and also a full length feature film of his life (“Stories of Me”). He was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame. This show trims the huge volume of Kelly’s work down to the most essential and powerful essence of his appeal. It is designed as a high energy performance relying on audience interaction. It is performed by a group of six seasoned professional musicians, conscious of the huge task set for them and respectful of the value of Kelly’s music that they are entrusted with to present to audiences.

Audiences hear all the hits and recreate all those characters and places which Paul Kelly’s audiences and loyal fans have come to know and love. All this appeal is packed into two x 1 hour powerful musical sets supported by lighting and visuals. No time for navel gazing and introspection here, but a real “show” to send audiences home singing Norths Leagues Club Fri 26 Jan 7:30pm. Paul Kelly
