UTSS feat +LIVE+, BUSH & Stone Temple Pilots Announce Rescheduled Dates For Feb 2021

Published

on

In great news for Under The Southern Stars fans and patrons, the rescheduled dates of +LIVE+, Bush and Stone Temple Pilots tour are announced today! 

Despite the unprecedented fall-out from COVID-19, all three bands were resolute in their decision to postpone rather than cancel the tour, determined not to disappoint fans and determined to support the Australian live music scene.    

Promoter One World Entertainment has been working hard behind the scenes to secure the new 2021 tour routing and thanks patrons for their patience during this time.  

The rescheduled tour – which sees +LIVE+, Bush and Stone Temple Pilots alternate their playing order across nine outdoor and two indoor shows – will commence in Perth on February 16, 2021 and end on the Sunshine Coast QLD on March 7, 2021. 

Special guest support acts Rose Tattoo and Electric Mary have also committed to the new dates. 

Tickets for the new dates are on sale on Friday, April 3 from 10.00am

+LIVE+ frontman Ed Kowalczyk said: “While the world is in an uncertain place right now, we can be certain that the UTSS festivals will go ahead in early 2021. We are super excited to get in front of our Australian fans so please, keep your tickets for the rescheduled events as they are 100% valid.  We can’t wait to be playing for you very soon, so please come and celebrate with us.” 

Gavin Rossdale from BUSH added: “I wanted to reach out to all our fans in Australia and say that UTSS is going to be happening in 2021. Our hearts go out to all the medical teams around the world and the first responder teams that have been taking care of everyone. We’re going to be back better and stronger than ever as an entire human race. Australia, I love you and can’t wait to be there. All tickets will be valid – so much love and take care.”  

And STP’s Robert De Leo: “We thank you for your patience as we got all this sorted out. Stay safe, spend some time with loved ones and we will see you all very soon. Much love.”

As has been reported, the Australian music industry has been completely crippled by COVID-19. Those working in lighting, sound, production, rigging, security, site management, catering, ushers, not to mention the musicians themselves, are all now unemployed and, will likely be, for many months.  With so many concerts and events cancelled, the industry desperately needs support and any positive news about the future is welcomed.  

+LIVE+, Bush and Stone Temple Pilots have delivered that today by rescheduling rather than cancelling their tour.  We hope that fans will echo their commitment and support the live music scene by retaining their tickets for next year’s rescheduled dates, rather than seeking a refund.

All 2020 tour tickets are valid for the rescheduled festival dates and no exchange is necessary, so just hold on to your tickets and we’ll see you next year.  The rescheduled dates are listed below. 

Unfortunately, the concert scheduled for April 3 at Tuncurry NSW cannot be rescheduled, but Tuncurry tickets are valid for the nearby Newcastle or Gosford shows. No exchange is necessary, just present your Tuncurry ticket at either venue on the day. (Further information will be sent directly to all Tuncurry patrons.) The tour has one venue change for the Sunshine Coast, with the show there now being held at the iconic Sandstone Point Hotel on Bribie Island.     

For fans unable to attend the rescheduled dates and wishing to re-sell their tickets via a legitimate outlet, the tour‘s official resale partner is Tixel. > tixel.com/k/utss-rescheduled
For assistance using Tixel please visit tixel.com/help where fans will be able to access FAQs or get in touch.

Fans who are not able to attend the rescheduled dates will be able to apply for a refund via our
event website between the 4th of May and 18th of May 2020. 

By today’s announcement, +LIVE+, Bush and Stone Temple Pilots have signalled their support for the Australian live music scene.  So make a diary note of the rescheduled dates, and let’s all look forward to seeing this cracking tour. Roll on 2021 we say……!

KISS OFF – The Ultimate Kiss Party Set To Rock February 2021!

Published

on

KISS fans aka “The Kiss Army” are some of the fiercest and most loyal rock ’n’ roll fans on the planet. Whether they prefer the make-up years, and the subsequent return to make-up, or the non make-up years of the ‘80s and early ‘90s, being a Kiss fan is nothing but a celebration of good time rock ’n’ roll and fun.

Silverback Touring will encapsulate the essence of being a Kiss fan with KISS OFF – The Ultimate Kiss Party, which will pay homage to both the ‘70s and ‘80s eras of KISS in a nationally touring live spectacle.

The ‘70s era (complete with full make-up, costumes and stage show) will be performed by the world famous KISSTERIA – The Australian KISS Show whilst the ‘80s era will be represented by Melbourne glam rockers, SISTERS DOLL, in an exclusively curated ‘80s set.

Each show will be rounded out by DJ JORDAN ADAM (Frankies Sydney) playing KISS deep cuts and ‘80s Rock favourites as well as a KISS marketplace for all die-hard fans to secure much sought after merch.

This is the ultimate experience for any KISS fan and will certainly fill the void whilst fans await the return of KISS to Australia on their final ever tour.

Tickets on sale now, both general admission and VIP packages available (limited numbers).

CRASHDIET and PRETTY BOY FLOYD Announce May 2021 Australian Tour

Published

on

Get set for a wild ride on the Glam, Sleaze and Hair Metal rollercoaster as Silverback Touring brings together Swedish hellraisers CRASHDIET, L.A. Glam legends PRETTY BOY FLOYD and local Glamsters SISTERS DOLL for a night of utter chaos.

“Go big or go home” is a phrase we’ve all muttered, shouted, or heard multiple times in our lives. For Swedish hard rockers CRASHDIET, it has been the motivational catch phrase since they started out back in the beginning of 2000.

As fans who have followed the band know, the band has gone through a bit of turbulence in their career, with deaths, line-up changes, and a history of substance abuse that would make some legendary ’80s hard rockers blush.

However, the boys have also become known for picking up the pieces and returning to the fight every time they get knocked down. Their undeniable mixture of ’80s arena rock with notable elements of punk has made them a significant name in the revival of the sleaze and glam (or hair metal) genre. CRASHDIET released their critically acclaimed debut album Rest in Sleaze in the fall of 2005 through Universal Music, giving them a springboard to success in their home country of Sweden, which then spread like wildfire across the globe. In September of 2019 they released their fifth studio album Rust.

Back in the late 80’s NYC guitarist Kristy Majors hooked up with west coast front man Steve Summers and laid the foundation for
their dream band. They worked, wrote songs and played and played and played. The band chose the name PRETTY BOY FLOYD because it seemed to describe them; 4 tough teens armed with guitar licks and teenage angst who set out to conquer the world.

The group signed to MCA records and released Leather Boyz with Electric Toyz, an album whose very name was a tongue-in-cheek tip of the hat to their glamorous heroes – Sweet, Kiss and The New York Dolls – all the bands who believed that rock music wasn’t just music. The Howard Benson-produced album made a significant impact, being named one of the hottest albums of its genre by Metal Edge and Spin magazines. PRETTY BOY FLOYD also landed on the cover of the then metal bible Kerrang!


Two Top 20 videos ‘I Wanna Be With You’ and ‘Rock and Roll is Gonna Set the Night on Fire’ hit MTV when it was the hot place to be. The band toured the world and was recognized as the kings of the Sunset Strip, breaking attendance records held by Van Halen and Warrant. Their album would go on to sell 750,000 copies worldwide. It’s now 2020 and PRETTY BOY FLOYD are still flying the glam flag higher than ever. PRETTY BOY FLOYD will be performing their infamous debut album in full as they return to Australia for the first time in over a decade.

Rounding out the bill are Melbourne glam rockers, SISTERS DOLL, who have developed a solid reputation for their explosive live show, showmanship and enjoy one of this country’s most fierce and loyal followings.

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.
