With a stellar lineup  comprising Hunters & Collectors, James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, The Baby Animals, Killing Heidi and Boom Crash Opera the Red Hot Summer tour hit South Australian shores on Sunday. Playing to yet another sell out crowd off around 3,000 people. The audience demographic was mixed with a heavy focus on the 50 plus bracket who enjoyed a drink and settled in for an afternoon of fine music and memories. With the rest of the country sweltering in 40 plus heat the temperature dropped rapidly to a chilly 18 degrees by late afternoon. With old brick work and rusty razor wire from the days gone by as a backdrop the crowd was waiting for the fun to begin.

Kevin McCloud Bringing His Live Show To Australia – February 2020

BAFTA award winning broadcaster, TV host, writer, environmentalist, amateur balloonist and storyteller. Kevin McCloud is all that and a bit more that you don’t know about. Now it’s time for him to tell his remarkable story – in his own words, live on stage. Kevin McCloud will be doing just that in February 2020 as he brings his live show to Australia. 

Thu 13th February        Perth                  Perth Concert Hall
Sat 15th February          Adelaide           Festival Theatre
Sun 16th February        Melbourne        Hamer Hall
Thu 20th February        Brisbane           Concert Hall
Fri 21st February           Sydney             State Theatre
Sun 23rd February        Canberra           Canberra Theatre
Tue 25th February         Hobart               Wrestpoint

Kevin has been a part of our lives for the past two decades, since the last millennium in fact, as the presenter of the hit TV show Grand Designs.

The World According to Kevin McCloud is a live theatre event, with Kevin sharing stories from the show, as well as anecdotes from his eventful life.

Australia is an extraordinary place where luckily I feel very welcome,” Kevin says. “I like the can-do attitude that people have. It also has this fantastic energy about it, which is very appealing. So I’m looking forward to returning with my  brand new show.” 

It’s an evening that will entertain – and make you think. “I enjoy taking complex ideas and making them accessible,” Kevin says.

The World According to Kevin McCloud includes a Q&A session that allows audience members to ask Kevin questions and air their deep-seated concerns about architecture, DIY and cushions. Kevin will also dig into his own past in an entertaining survey of 1960s wallpaper, the Space Programme, McMansions, Community and the Planet.  Everything that makes our environment in fact.

Raised in a house his parents built in Bedfordshire, Kevin, the son of a rocket scientist, studied the history of art and architecture at Cambridge, where he designed shows for the Footlights theatre club and its stars, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie and Emma Thompson.

Kevin also studied opera in Italy and designed the famous fruit and vegetable ceiling at the Harrods Food Hall, of all things.  The Daily Mail described Kevin as a “heartthrob – the one your wives all fancy”, while The Guardian called him “a serious man of taste and integrity”. To prove that, he’s an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects and is now allowed to use grown-up scissors and power tools.

In a piece headed “Kevin McCloud Is, Hands Down, The Greatest TV Host of All Time”, VICE dubbed him “the most puzzlingly charismatic TV host ever to grace our screens … Kevin McCloud is a character. He’s the person you dream of being sat next to at an otherwise dull dinner party.” Kevin, however, objects to the word ‘puzzlingly’.

In short, The World According to Kevin McCloud gives you the chance to get up close and personal with the man himself.  “Come one, come all,” Kevin says. “There’ll be some very poor music and maybe a little construction mayhem. No hard hat necessary. Hope to see you there.”
