The Casanovas Intimate Sunday Sesh With Special Guests The Crookeds & Wicked Things

Published

on

There are not many bands like The Casanovas in Australia. Built on a foundation of both riff driven rock ’n’ roll and punk influences, think Kiss meets AC/DC with dashes of The Stooges, MC5, Turbonegro and then back to The Rolling Stones, The Casanovas have been flying the flag for Aussie rock for 21 years.

Their latest album, “Reptilian Overlord” released in the midst of the pandemic in August 2020 is a refinement of what the band is all about with the influences coming from punk, blues and mid ‘70s metal.

As we see out the year that was, we are stoked to present a celebration of all things rock ’n’ roll as Silverback Touring presents a pre Christmas Sunday session with Melbourne icons, The Casanovas. Join us in putting the lockdown behind us with some festive rock ’n’ roll vibes.

Special guests: The Crookeds and Wicked Things (Sydney).

Andrew Farriss Announces Tour Dates For April & May 2021

Published

on

Legendary songwriter, and founding member of INXS, Andrew Farriss will be performing a number of intimate shows in April and May 2021 to celebrate the release of his first solo album. Andrew’s self-titled LP features a selection of eclectic songs with a unique blend of rhythm, roots, Americana and country influences. The album, which is set for a 19 March 2021 release, follows the 2020 release of Andrew’s critically acclaimed EP Love Makes The World – a wonderful mix of folk, ballad, contemporary and experimental songs that focus on humans and their relationships with each other and also with the earth. 

Andrew’s songs have sold INXS of fifty million albums during his career (pun intended). He is one of Australia’s most successful songwriters of all time with his works being played constantly on radio around the world over the last 40 years. In January 2020, he was honoured with a Member of the Order of Australia (AM), acknowledging his considerable contribution to music.

Andrew released his debut country single, Come Midnight, in 2019, aptly demonstrating his versatility as a songwriter and endearing him to country music fans. His follow-up single, Good Momma Bad, which he debuted at Tamworth Country Music Festival this January, helped cement Andrew as a formidable presence on the country-roots scene. His last single, All The Stars Are Mine from his recently released EP, Love Makes The World, continued to showcase the many facets of Andrew’s songwriting.

Spend an evening with one of Australia’s most successful and respected artists and experience the craftsmanship and beauty of his music, and the stories that lay within his songs. Be taken on a journey through places, emotions, observations and the personal experiences of a true legend of the Australian music industry.  

These shows have limited capacity due to COVID-19 restrictions so book now to avoid missing out on what will be an awesome night of music with Andrew Farriss and his friends.

Andrew Farriss will release his self-titled debut album on 19 March 2021 through BMG.

Steel Panther ‘Heavy Metal Rules’ Tour With Sevendust Re-Scheduled To October 2021

Published

on

Steel Panther‘s Heavy Metal Rules Australian and New Zealand tour dates (with special guests Sevendust on the Australian dates) are now officially re-scheduled until October 2021! MJR Presents are bringing the Metal Mayhem down under later than expected, but better late than pregnant, ahem, never!

Don’t think of it as being let down by a lover, think of it as your lover extending, teasing and delaying your pleasure until you can take it no more and you crave their smooth, heavy-metal riff-laden touch and beg for more! That’s the kind of considerate lovers Steel Panther are. It’s not like they are out playing other shows and cheating on you, right? They Are? Oh.

October 2021 will FINALLY (!) see the wildest, wettest, dirtiest, hardest, heaviest most rocking heavy metal tour to hit Australian shores ever in the history of anything – EVER. MJR Presents are bringing Steel Panther to Australia once again for a Heavy Metal Party the likes of which have never been seen by human eyes and they are bringing none other than their US mates Sevendust along for the party!

This tour STILL marks the largest venues that Steel Panther will have played in Australia due to growing demand every time they return down under.

In true Oprah style, you feel the steel! You feel the steel! EVERYBODY gets to FEEL THE STEEL because HEAVY METAL RULES!
