Australia’s favourite country rockers The Wolfe Brothers are heading back out on the road in 2021 with their highly anticipated Startin’ Something National Tour. After signing a new world-wide record deal with BMG in 2020, the band released two smash hit singles in the second half of the year. No Brakes and Anybody Ever went straight to #1 on the national radio charts, with No Brakes holding the #1 spot for a record breaking eight consecutive weeks. Anybody Ever is still in the charts, currently at #1 for the fifth week in a row. Not only did these two smash hit songs bring the band’s tally to an incredible 14 consecutive #1 singles over their career, but No Brakes was named #1 Song Of The Year on the KIX Network and the 88.9FM end of year Charts.
With a swag of new songs recorded during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown in 2020, The Wolfe Brothers are planning to release their new album in the first half of this year. “We are so grateful for the response to the first two singles released from our forthcoming album,” says Tom Wolfe. “The plan is to put out one more single before we release the album and I am super excited to get this one out there.”
Nick Wolfe says the band can’t wait to share the album with fans. “We put a lot of time into this record and I think it shows in how all the new songs have come up,” he says. “Tom and I are really happy with it and can’t wait to release it and to get back out on tour with the new songs. I am sure we will test run some of the album’s songs at all the shows leading up to the release. It is always fun to give everyone a taste of what is to come and get the feedback from the fans.”
The Wolfe Brothers have built an ever-growing fanbase from the quality and energy of their live shows. After a year of being in lockdown and unable to travel, they are ready to get the party rolling again all over Australia with a new show and a bunch of new songs that will take it to the next level.
Book your tickets and join the Wolfe Pack for a great night of Aussie country rock at its best. The Wolfe Brothers special guest for the first two shows in March is two-time Golden Guitar winner Andrew Swift. Since finding his feet in the Australian country scene as a Toyota Starmaker grand-finalist in 2017, Andrew Swift as gone from strength-to-strength, his debut album Call Out For the Cavalry debuted at #1 on the ARIA Australian Country Charts.

Plini Announces Impulse Voices Australian Tour With Special Guest Stephen Taranto
This July, Sydney guitar-wizard PLINI is set to return to the stage to celebrate the release of his latest album, Impulse Voices. After a year of show postponements and cancellations, PLINI and his band of musical superheroes (Chris Allison, Jake Howsam Lowe and Simon Grove) are thrilled to reunite on stage, performing new songs, old songs and all the notes in between.
“It was definitely a little strange releasing a new album without being able to celebrate it with live shows, but being able to announce these three (and hopefully more soon) has me and my band over the moon! Going to be practising like crazy, putting together a new setlist… I’m even a little excited just to coil cables after the shows. See you all soon!” says PLINI.
To ensure a truly memorable evening, all three shows of this east coast run will be supported by the inimitable STEPHEN TARANTO and his band, playing music from his critically-acclaimed EP Permanence for the first time ever.
PLINI and STEPHEN will also host a music masterclass / Q&A session before each show – an opportunity to ask about their approaches to playing, writing, creativity, music business and more.
PLINI’s last Australian tour sold out weeks in advance, so grab your tickets now!

Just Announced: The Angels’ Greatest Hits, Live In Concert “The Greatest Show On Earth”, Melbourne June 2021!
Emerging from lockdown and ready to rock, The Angels have put something special together for their fans, and it doesn’t get any bigger or better than this – an unbelievable greatest hits show, “The Greatest Show On Earth” presented by Mr Damage.
Kicking off in Melbourne initially, with two shows at The Palms at Crown on June 18 and 19, the band is thrilled to confirm a setlist of wall-to-wall hits including ‘Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again’, ‘No Secrets’, ‘Take A Long Line’, ‘Shadow Boxer’, ‘Marseilles’, ‘Comin’ Down’, ‘After The Rain’, ‘Face The Day’, ‘Fashion and Fame’, ‘Let The Night Roll On’, ‘We Gotta Get Out Of This Place’, ‘Mr Damage’ and many more.
As the book The 100 Best Australian Albums points out, “The Angels can lay claim to being Australia’s longest-lasting band.” They have been on the road consistently since 1974 and it took a global pandemic to slow them down. Now the band is itching to get back on stage and they’re not mucking around!
This is the start of a huge year for The Angels as they celebrate some major anniversaries in 2021. It’s 45 years since the release of their debut single ‘Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again’, a song that’s now an indelible part of the Australian culture.
This tour also marks the 10th anniversary of Dave Gleeson joining the band, a position he treats with great reverence. “I’m definitely respectful of the fact that I’m not the creator of the Angels’ sound,” Dave says. “And I’m mindful of bringing that energy that Doc brought to the band. But it’s a real treat for me to be up there blasting out songs that I’ve loved since I was a kid.”
Acknowledging their disappointment at the cancellation of Bluesfest recently, Rick Brewster notes, “We were devastated. We all know it’s been a very tough 12 months for the music industry and every music fan. Our relationship with the audience means everything to us and it’s fantastic to have the opportunity to play more shows and reconnect again”.“It’s time to get back out there and do what we love doing,” adds John Brewster. “It’s time to rock.”
Let The Night Roll On!

Steel Panther & Sevendust unveil Brisbane Mini-Fest Lineup on their ‘Heavy Metal Rules’ Tour
DEAD LETTER CIRCUS, LAGERSTEIN, DEVILSKIN & BARE BONES ROUND OUT LINEUP IN BRISBANE ON SATURDAY OCTOBER 30
TICKETS ON SALE NOW AT HTTP://MJRPRESENTS.COM
Steel Panther is going big. Really, really, really big. Like, outdoor festival style show type of big! And they’re bringing 5 kick ass bands with them to electrify and amaze your eyeballs and ear holes.
Sevendust, Dead Letter Circus, Lagerstein, Devilskin, & Bare Bones will help round out this amazing lineup! Tickets are on sale now for the new Brisbane show and remaining tour dates.
This tour marks the largest venues that Steel Panther will have played in Australia due to growing demand every time they return down under! The ‘HEAVY METAL RULES TOUR’ starts in New Zealand at Powerstation on Sunday October 24th. On Tuesday 26th October they meet up with Sevendust to double-team Australia. Catch both bands at Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne on the 26th, at Newcastle Entertainment Centre, Newcastle on the 28th, at Hordern Pavilion, Sydney on the 29th and then for the final blow-out at Eaton’s Hill Hotel, Brisbane on Saturday 30th October.
For the uninitiated, Steel Panther was formed in 2000 and is comprised of Michael Starr (lead singer), Satchel (guitarist), Lexxi Foxx (bass) and Stix Zadinia (drums). Hailing from Los Angeles, the epicenter for rock n’ roll in all its debauchery and glamour, Steel Panther has established themselves as the world’s premier party band, melding hard rock virtuosity with parody and criminally good looks. Steel Panther is a global phenomenon with four full-length albums, touring across the world, platinum-level YouTube status and a #13 debut for the new album Heavy Metal Rules on the ARIA charts.
Along for the ride are Sevendust, who were last here in 2019 on their tour celebrating the 2018 album ‘All I See is War’. While demonstrating their musical mastery accumulated over more than 25 years as a band and simultaneously destroying all expectations for their live show, Sevendust show no signs of slowing down. To this day, the connection between fans and the GRAMMY® Award-nominated gold-certified hard rock outfit only grows stronger. They released their latest album ‘Blood & Stone’ in October 2020 through Rise Records.
