A Day on the Green at the picturesque Rochford Wines at Yarra Valley in Victoria promised so much and delivered even more. Joining forces for the first time in Australia were Debbie Harry AKA Blondie and Cyndi Lauper. The tour aptly touted “The bitches are coming back” pitted two veterans of modern music on some of the country’s biggest stages.

While supporting Tame Impala on their national tour, Mini Mansions took a moment to play a laid back, grassroots show at Sydney’s GoodGod Small Club. Exchanging the open stage and flair of a larger venue for a stripped back, tight venue. The experience at GoodGod was a pure representation of the band’s skill and appeal to music lovers.
“Hanging on the Telephone” was originally written by Jack Lee. It was first performed by his short-lived US West Coast power pop trio The Nerves.
McManus Entertainment have announced the return to Australia of one of music’s most acclaimed bands Blondie. Boasting one of the most compelling front-women in music Deborah Harry, Blondie have enjoyed a stream of timeless top ten hits bursting with great hooks and brilliant iconic lyrics. Aussie fans can expect a stellar performance from this renowned group.
Blondie’s tour will hit Australia in December. They will play to fans in Hobart, Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Townsville and Brisbane and will also grace the stage at this year’s Homebake Festival. Joining Blondie for these special shows will be special guests The Stranglers and The Saints. For the Sydney show special guests The Machinations will play to crowds in place of The Saints.
