Kevin Bloody Wilson

In the

F.U.P.C Tour

The Kevin Bloody Wilson Show is not just a concert performance, for most, it’s a full on event and an opportunity to tick from your bucket-list a chance to see Australia’s most unique International comedy legend. Kevin has become a national institution – a must see for any person wanting to see absolute original Australian comedy.

If we were asked to nominate one individual to best define Australian humour, for most of us, the name Kevin Bloody Wilson immediately springs to mind. His recently released biography ‘DILLIGAF, The Life And Rhymes Of Kevin Bloody Wilson’ is a raucous, earthy, in depth look at perhaps one of the only Australian comedians who has not bowed to the pressures of political correctness.

Kevin Bloody Wilson’s story is remarkable.  He has become a part of Australian Culture, a part of who we are and how we define ourselves. His DILLIGAF attitude is a quality to be envied.

He’s been listed in Who’s Who, his entire body of work has been preserved for future generations with the National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra and his fan base stretches from Broken Hill to Buckingham Palace.

It’s also a known fact that nobody tells Australian stories better than Kevin Bloody Wilson. His peers agree:

‘The world’s funniest Australian’ Billy Connolly

‘I love Kev.  My favourite is Livin’ Next Door To Alan.’ Paul Hogan

‘Hello John, is the funniest song I’ve ever heard in my entire radio career.’ John Laws

Kevin Bloody Wilson is also the only international artist who can shift seamlessly between an outback pub to the hallowed halls of the London Palladium.

His record sales are now nudging the four million mark. Without traditional media support, all of Kevin Bloody Wilson’s albums and DVDs have achieved Gold Sales status globally, with many reaching Platinum, and one, ‘Kev’s Back’, awarded an amazing quadruple Platinum. Kev’s recordings can be found in such diverse locations as Outback Australia to Antarctica. From Big-Rig road trains to the console of Prince Charles’ Aston Martin.

It seems ironic that twenty-five years ago, Kevin Bloody Wilson was being arrested for performing his songs in public, yet on Australia Day in January 2010, he was officially nominated for Australian Of The Year for doing exactly the same thing.

Now, Kev tours often in Australia and internationally, always to large audiences of adoring fans. He maintains his stringent tour schedule because of his love of live shows, and the incredibly interaction he has with the multitude of fanatical Kev fans worldwide.

Well done Kev, you’ve done us proud. Don’t miss the legend in a venue near you!

ACCA DACCA WEBSITE

History lessons are, by nature, elongated and tedious affairs full of facts and figures and not much else, but when you combine history and live music things become interesting and entertaining. Fast.

Such is it with The AC/DC Story, a three hour plus interactive performance that documents the life and times of one of Australia’s finest ever musical exports.

Taking you on a journey from the humble beginnings of the legendary band through the Bon Scott era and the fallout from his death, through to the many highlights with Brian Johnson at the helm, The AC/DC Story succeeds where others have failed through the use of visual mediums such as film clips, interviews, and rare photographs and combines them with a live performance from Accadacca in selected increments, performing songs from each album and adding an authenticity to the show that takes you back to the days when this cheeky group of Aussie underdogs defied all odds to reach the summit of rock and roll.

It is a show that will inform and entertain, with the famous bells from ‘Hells Bells’ and the cannons from ‘For Those About to Rock’ making a welcome return. It is an all-encompassing spectacular that tells the story of AC/DC with music and allows you to actually feel and enjoy the journey from a unique and rewarding perspective.

Accadacca have been belting out all of your favourite AC/DC tunes since 2000, with vocalist Larry Attard having supported and run in the same circles as an up and coming AC/DC in their early years with the occasional drinking with Bon himself at The Victory Hotel Sydney as well as… well you will just have to catch the show to hear the rest.

LADIES NIGHT WEBSITE

The story of four unemployed guys, motivated by ‘The Chippendales’

to form a male stripping act, in order to make some fast cash.

They pitch the notion to a local club owner and take lessons from a slightly shop-worn, dance instructor with a heart-of-gold in all manner of things, including what women really want from a male stripper (and how to deliver it).

Written in 1987, by Anthony McCarten and Stephen Sinclair, Ladies Night has been translated into twelve languages and remains New Zealand’s most commercially successful play, of all time.

With eight sell-out tours of Britain and the U.K, it won France’s premiere theatre award for comedy- The Molière Prize, in 2001.

Ladies Night will leave you hyperactive and ready to party!

It’s the kind of show that you can take your granny to…

Cheeky, fun, a little bit naughty – and a damn good giggle.

AKMAL WEBSITE

 

Have you always wanted a perfect body, with rock hard abbs and buns of steel without ever getting out of bed?

Imagine having enough confidence to get out of your car during a road rage incident that wasn’t your fault, instead of apologising and cowardly driving off as quickly as you can.

If you have ever wanted to be so financially wealthy that you could pay Rupert Murdoch to drop his pants and perform a silly dance while singing in a high pitch voice, just for a laugh.

Well in this one-hour show, Akmal will be asking the audience if they know how he can achieve these things.

A life changing experience or your money back!

Known for his incredible ability to deal with hot topics in a hilarious and slightly offensive way, Akmal promises this year to deliver a show that is punctual and jam-packed with words…some of which he will be using for the first time.

One of Australia’s most respected and accomplished comics, Akmal draws on his Arabic heritage, his experiences immigrating to Australia at the age of 11, and his disillusionment with religion and the modern world to deliver a stand-up show that is fresh, honest and ridiculously funny. Whatever you do don’t mention the words – Bush rats.

Saleh entered the world of comedy in 1990 under the alias Peter Saleh (‘‘so people would think I was white’‘, he says).  Since then he’s performed in movies, on TV and as a regular radio and talk show host, and has written a book about his journey from Egypt and his life as an Arab on the Australian comedy circuit.

As a stand-up he’s performed at Festivals all around the world including Edinburgh, Montreal & The Melbourne International Comedy Festival and has won numerous awards, including two ARIA nominations for his live specials…

PRESENTED BY
PETER CUPPLES
MOTOWN RECORDING ARTIST

SATURDAY JULY 6, 2019
Doors: 7.30pm – Show: 8pm

Adults: $30

PETER CUPPLES WEBSITE

 

Stevie Wonder is one of the greatest artists of all time. Sometimes referred to as the eighth wonder of the world, Stevie was a true musical virtuoso and complete all-rounder. As a singer he possesses one of the most distinctive voices ever heard, his tone, control and range being second to none.

As a musician he could play piano, drums, harmonica and bass by the age of 10, and now he is proficient on so many instruments he’s regarded to be in a league of his own.

As a writer he’s penned and produced over 30 top ten singles, picked up 25 Grammies along the way and left us with some of the all time classics:  ‘You are the Sunshine of my Life’, ‘Superstition’, ‘For Once in my Life’, ‘Sir Duke’, ‘Lately’, ‘I Just Called to Say I Love you’, ‘All is Fair in Love’ just to name a few.

You may wonder why there hasn’t been a Stevie Wonder tribute show done before. Well, it’s quite simple. There are very few people with the quality of voice, musicianship, sensitivity and sheer foolishness to try! But now, Australia’s very own Motown recording artist, Peter Cupples has embarked on such a challenge. Some people say, ‘if anyone can do it, it’s Cupples’, others shake their heads and call it ‘vocal suicide’. I guess we will have to let you be the judge of that.

Featuring some of the hottest musicians in Australia, this show celebrating the music genius of Stevie Wonder will absolutely delight Wonder fans and all those who love great music.

At Last! An act that goes beyond a Band. A show that goes beyond a concept!

See and experience Fleetwood Mac the way they really were – a sensational and enduring band of the 70’s and 80’s – by a talented group of musicians dedicated to the task of bringing this era, this sound to the stage for all to enjoy.

Before your eyes, see this concept take shape – the fabulous costumes of the 70’s, especially those worn by the two beautiful ‘Mac’ ladies – Stevie and Christine. Hear the magical Fleetwood Mac sound, reproduced to the highest degree of authenticity, by this committed team of musicians who genuinely love what they are doing.

This is total impersonation!   This is something special!

Formed on the Gold Coast of Queensland in 1995, the band consists of five musicians who have pooled their talents and energies to achieve a combination that is hard to equal. A tight, punchy rhythm section, guitar work which varies from sensitive to screaming, combined with piano and keyboards both rich and full. Add to this, the harmonies of four superb vocalists, and Fleetwood Mac, at its best, lives again. Introducing Joanne Stanley, the mysterious and charismatic Stevie Nicks – Fleetwood Mac’s breathtaking songbird. Also featuring Debbie Hinton as the alluring and brilliant keyboardist and vocalist Christine McVie. Graeme Thompson is at his best as the solid Bass Master – John McVie. He is the ‘Mac’ of Fleetwood Mac. See Rick Hay portray the Moody, artistic and sensitive Song & Guitar man – Lindsay Buckingham. And to compete the show, the powerful drum sound of Mick Fleetwood, the creator and Mentor of Fleetwood Mac, – superbly delivered by Terry Gascoigne.

This is without doubt, one of the best musical concept shows to come out of Australia.

Presenting such Hits as…

Rhiannon  –  Seven Wonders  – Tusk – Sara – The Chain

Don’t Stop – Hold Me – Tell Me Lies – You Make Loving Fun – Gypsy

Gold Dust Women –  Albatross – Enchanted

DAMI IM WEBSITE

SEAFM Presents Australia’s most revered pop artist of the new millennium, Dami Im is set to take her all new national tour on the road in 2019. Bringing her exciting band along, concertgoers can expect to see something special in Dami’s live show; an array of established hits and fan favourites from X Factor, power ballad and international Eurovision smash, “Sound of Silence” and a mix of new material including ‘Dreamer’.
Dami is no stranger to the stage, since performing in intimate venues along the east coast of Australia, Dami reveals “I’ve always felt most confident when I’m on stage performing and it’s been a dream of mine to live this life as a performer. It’s going to be a very special tour where I get to show my musical evolution as I sing my previous repertoire as well as the new music that I’ve been working on this year.”
Dami Im has amassed a multitude of hits and achievements during her relatively short career. The Korean born singer and musician first came to national prominence when she won season five of The X Factor in 2013. Dami walked off The X Factor stage victorious and strode, without delay, into the #1 spot on the ARIA charts with her platinum self-titled album DAMI IM.
Since then, she’s released three more acclaimed studio albums, including the Gold accredited 2014 release, CLASSIC CARPENTERS, which peaked at #3 on the ARIA album charts and gave rise to a sold-out national tour. Dami then travelled to Sweden to represent Australia at The Eurovision Song Contest 2016—where she placed second in the world performing in front of an audience of 200 million with her international hit, ‘Sound of Silence’. Early 2018, Dami released her fourth studio album I HEAR A SONG which peaked #3 on the ARIA Album Charts.

Kiki Dee is best known for her smash hit duets with Elton John, ‘Don’t go breaking my heart’ and ‘True Love’ one of the most sought-after Wedding waltzes’ in the English language.

Her fist hit single however, was ‘I got the music in me’ followed by the haunting and beautiful ‘Amarouse’ which stayed on top of the international charts for many weeks.

Kiki Dee is one of the most prolific recording artists of our time with 40 singles, 4 EP’s and 12 Albums to her credit.

Her performance at the historic Live Aid concert at Wembley stadium is a milestone in her long career.

Other hit songs include

‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, ‘How Glad I Am’ ‘On a Magic Carpet Ride’ and ‘Star which later became the theme music to the BBC TV programme Opportunity Knocks.

Kiki was the first British artist to be signed by Tamla Motown.

In this, her first ever tour to Australia Kiki will perform all her hits as well as classic covers and tributes to Leonard Cohen and others

In the early 1990’s Kiki joined forces with songwriter, producer and guitarist Carmelo Luggeri, who had worked with Bill Wyman, Julian Lennon, Andy Williams, Paul Rodgers, Kenney Jones, Ray Cooper, Chris Rea and Ralph McTell. Carmelo produced some bonus tracks for ‘The Very Best of Kiki Dee’ album, and, having hit it off musically, they took on a new musical direction together, playing acoustic concerts, starting with an appearance at The Royal Albert Hall for World AIDS Day in 1994.

Over the last 18 years, Kiki and Carmelo have successfully curated and toured their unique acoustic-based show in the UK and Europe. Their first release in 1995 was the live album ‘Almost Naked’, which was recorded whilst on tour with violinist Vanessa-Mae. ‘It was a shock at first to perform just the two of us’, said Kiki. ‘I remember bursting into tears after our first tour date, but it soon felt good to have the freedom of working with just a voice and guitar and writing songs while on the road’.

SATURDAY AUGUST 24

All Tickets: $20

Sophistication Facebook

Dean Doyle with Sophistication present an afternoon of swinging music and great vocals as we salute the fabulous Big Band Crooners. The modern Big Band vocal style began with Frank Sinatra’s ‘Songs for Swinging Lovers’ in the mid-fifties. Since that album, singing with a laid-back delivery in front of a swinging band has never gone out of style!

Big Band singers had been around for almost 20 year. But the cool singer with an attitude and seemingly all the time in the world to deliver a song (in front of cooking band), started with Sinatra’s concept albums of the 50’s. Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr, Bobby Darin and more recently Harry Connick Jnr and Michael Buble have kept this Music current and hip over the years.

To kick through this fabulous repertoire, Sophistication are joined by our little Rat Pack Brother: Bruce Rollo (vocalist, avid Sinatra fan and an excellent impersonator). The band will also be a major part of the show with vocal and piano solos from the fabulous Narelle Harris, and classic drum features from Paul Belsham.

Due to overwhelming demand, Elvis an American Trilogy, the show that embodies the essence of The King, is back in Australia this September. Three of the world’s leading Elvis performers will take the audience on a spellbinding journey through the many eras of The King, a 20th century icon and one of the world’s most recognisable figures.

The show begins with Vic Trevino Junior, who is returning to Australia for his fifth tour. Vic captures the audience with his raw rockabilly sound and feel combined with some of the best Elvis dance moves.

Ben Thompson, winner of the 2018 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist contest, takes the role of Elvis in his movie years and the ‘68 comeback special. He effortlessly recreates him straight out of the army and into black leather, personifying this period with all the songs and sex appeal that was Elvis.

Since the passing of Elvis there has never been a tribute artist that has captivated the look, moves and sound, more than Justin Shandor. He is the only tribute artist to make the front page of USA Today, feature in Vogue Magazine and perform on The David Letterman Show. Justin transcends the Aloha From Hawaii concert with the voice and the shy but charming banter.

She has lived through a lot of heartache in her life, including the death of her brother and her four-year-old daughter, both to tragic accidents. Her mother passed in late 2006. These deaths have made her a most compassionate and understanding reader, especially in relating to how her clients may be feeling.
