Guns N’ Roses Are Bringing Stadium Rock Back To Australia & New Zealand, November 2021

Published

on

Stadium rock is back!

Guns N’ Roses made our collective rock’n’roll dreams come true with 2017’s Not In This Lifetime tour and now Paul Dainty AM, President & CEO of TEG DAINTY is thrilled to announce one of the greatest bands of all time will return to tour Australia & New Zealand in November 2021.

As the first stadium tour announcement since the advent of COVID-19 and border closures pressed pause on touring, it’s fair to say our appetite for live music performances by international megastars has peaked and in Guns N’ Roses we trust!

The Australian leg of Guns N’ Roses’ Not In This Lifetime stadium tour marked the first time that Australian fans witnessed Axl, Slash and Duff reunited since 1993’s Use Your Illusion tour and the band’s onstage chemistry was undeniable.

GNR’s 2021 Australia & New Zealand tour is the light at the end of the bleak tunnel we’ve all negotiated this year. All aboard the Nightrain to Paradise City for what promises to be a heaving celebration of the unbreakable human spirit!

The Silverback Agency Launches, With A Roster Of Killer Aussie / NZ Rock!

Published

on

THE SILVERBACK AGENCY is a full-service artist and talent agency offering artist services in management, booking, touring, artist development, digital distribution, merchandise, publicity and media.

The agency was developed as the next phase in the evolution of SILVERBACK TOURING, the touring agency, which was established in 2018 and has established itself, in a short time, as a serious player in rock touring in Australia. Whilst the music industry came to a screeching halt in 2020 thanks to COVID-19, the Silverback team accelerated their plans for a local talent agency.

Bad Moon Born

The focus of the agency is its artists first and foremost. Whilst the traditional model of talent agencies continues to operate, the Silverback team believe that it is a new world we are now in where the role of an agent extends beyond simply booking shows for its artists. The agency is adaptable and multi layered.

Silverback’s Danny Bazzi elaborates, “the development of artists is paramount in this day and age. The roles of agents, managers and business managers cross over more today than they ever have. If we can offer our artists a team to get them up and running, put them in front of great audiences and, in the process, contribute to re-imagining the rock scene in Australia and extend that into New Zealand, Asia and the rest of the world , then we are doing our job”.

Shepherds Reign

The foundation Silverback roster includes a range of up and coming rock acts which sit comfortably side by side in the very wide and diverse lane that is hard rock and metal. The artists range from alt-metal, heavy blues through to straight up hard rock and glam.

The Black Cardinals

In addition to the original artist roster, Silverback has also established a tribute arm to its roster of artists. On the topic of tribute acts, Bazzi says, “tribute acts are both loved and polarise at the same time. Some of these acts are amazing at what they do. Everyone loves nostalgia and we established our tribute roster to put these bands in front of new audiences, some on their first ever national tours, as well as into new territories. South East Asia is our first international stop for a number of these acts, a far reach from playing local pubs”.

If 2020 has taught us one thing, it is that the local music landscape is rapidly changing. It is time to bring some of our amazing local artists to the forefront.

Silverback Touring is ecstatic to announce the launch of their new brand, Icons & Legends, a nod to the artists which have shaped our lives and popular culture as we know it.

On the concept, Danny Bazzi, head of Silverback, says:

“We wanted to bring the music of some of these iconic and legendary acts to the forefront. This is not a dress up tribute show, this is about the music and the legacy of the music, delivered by a killer band with some amazing voices up front and in some of our countries best rock venues. This is a celebration that will appeal to every single fan. We wanted to select bands that have that universal appeal and who better than Bon Jovi to kick things off”.

Icons & Legends: A Tribute To The Music Of Bon Jovi will focus on Bon Jovi’s releases between 1983 and 2005 and will feature a hit and anthem filled set including: ‘Living On A Prayer’, ‘Wanted Dead Or Alive’, ‘It’s My Life’, ‘Runaway’, ‘Keep The Faith’, ‘Bad Medicine’ and lots more. Leading the charge and up front on vocals are the massive voices of Virgina Lillye & Mark Furze who both gave Australia an insight into their rock credentials as semi-finalists on The Voice this year. The backing band, providing the soundtrack, are Melbourne band, HEADHUNTERS, an accomplished group of Australian musicians led by Brazilian guitar maestro, Marcelo Machado.

This is a show which is a must for not only any Bon Jovi fan, but any rock fan. Tickets are limited as all venues are operating in COVID safe capacities.
