Under The Southern Stars Postponed To 2022

Published

on

The Under the Southern Stars spectacular concert series featuring  Cheap TrickBush and Stone Temple Pilots has regrettably and unfortunately been postponed. Again.

We must protect our patrons, our artists and our crews. 

Given the disappointingly slow roll-out of the vaccine by the Government, there is no confidence that we can keep all safe and proceed as planned at our festivals this May. The continuing mismanagement of the Covid-19 situation at all levels of government has led to numerous inconsistencies and on-going broken promises by officials that ultimately affect the safety of our patrons, artists and our crews, both domestic and international. So much so that the situation presents too much to risk to go forward with the dates as planned at the end of April and into May 2021. 

The very recent eleventh hour cancellation of Byron Bay Bluesfest by the NSW government on the eve of the landmark festivals start date over Easter was an incredibly disheartening display of what could possibly happen to our patrons, artists and crews – being left stranded high and dry only moments before one of our events is set to kick off.  We wish to protect all, and avoid a situation such as this. 

To keep all involved as safe as we can and limit the possibility of getting stuck in the middle of further snap lockdowns, border closures and other knee-jerk reactions, we have to move Under The Southern Stars to a time that gives the series its best chance of running smoothly, as planned and ultimately allowing for the best experience possible to all ticket holders.

This is not a decision that we have taken lightly, but the safety of all is our motivation.

Under The Southern Stars promoter, Andrew McManus has issued the following statement.
‘We ask you all to continue to believe in us. We must protect our artists and patrons. We get it … how many times can the Australian system force another postponement? So we are making the hard decision to reschedule Under The Southern Stars to the first quarter of 2022 and ask that all our valued supporters hold on to their tickets and in return we will be announcing some truly exciting additions to the line-up and festival circuit! 

We sincerely apologise for the situation and ask once again for our loyal patrons to #keepyourticket and stay tuned. Not only for new dates, but we are planning on making Under The Southern Stars bigger and better. It will absolutely be worth the wait.

A full announcement including the rescheduled dates, additions to the line-up and more will be shared in the coming weeks.

All tickets already purchased will be valid for new shows when they are announced.

Further information concerning rescheduled dates will be available via

Published

on

Scandinavia heads down under as Silverback Touring bring you two of Sweden’s finest Hard Rock exports H.E.A.T and CRAZY LIXX. This will be the first Australian Tour for both bands and the action takes place in the rescheduled dates of September 2022.

Over the last several years H.E.A.T have established themselves as one of the leading bands in the melodic rock scene, both in their homeland Sweden and internationally. They have toured and performed front of thousands and thousands of fans around the world.

In April 2008, their self-titled debut album was released and became a massive vitamin injection for the genre and instantly received accolades from both fans and critics worldwide. The release was followed up by immense touring and H.E.A.T played with bands such as Alice Cooper, Thin Lizzy and on big festivals like Sweden Rock.

Since that time H.E.A.T have released a further 5 studio albums that latest being this years H.E.A.T II and have established themselves as a major force in the hard rock world.

“What can you say about H.E.A.T? If you don’t like these energetic Swedes you must be dead inside, as this year they’ve shown the UK crowd how to be the most complete band on the planet” – Classic Rock Magazine.

Joining H.E.A.T are fellow Swedes CRAZY LIXX! CRAZY LIXX carry the torch of Rock ‘n’ Roll with pride with their brand of Hard Rock and Hair Metal. Since their album debut in 2007, the band has been enthralling crowds with their unique brand of 80’s Hard Rock and stellar live show.

Their latest album Forever Wild is another sleaze metal gem that harkens back to the best of ‘80s rock, while also keeping a foot planted in the 21st century. Forever Wild further cements CRAZY LIXX as one of the leaders of the Scandinavian led ‘80s hard rock revival.

Rendering the pure nostalgia of 80’s Arena Hard Rock and ‘The New Wave of Swedish Sleaze’ CRAZY LIXX come packed with impressive guitar solos, memorable hooks, catchy choruses, big drums and genre defining riffs.

H.E.A.T and CRAZY LIXX 2022 Australian Tour Dates:

Thursday 8 Sept – Sydney, Manning Bar
Friday 9 Sept – Melbourne, The Prince
Saturday 10 Sept – Brisbane, The Zoo
Sunday 11 Sept – Adelaide, The Gov
