In 2017, one of Australia’s most prolific and iconic bands will celebrate another milestone in a long line of major milestone when ICEHOUSE mark the 40th anniversary of their very first live performance, which was at the Warriewood Surf Life Saving Club, with shows across Australia and New Zealand.
It’s been quite a weekend for Montaigne; she just turned 21 years old, and her triumphant album Glorious Heights made a stellar debut at #4 on the ARIA charts – a remarkable feat for such a young artist. Due to high demand, two extra shows in Melbourne and Sydney have been added to the BECAUSE I LOVE YOU national tour. On this tour Montaigne and the band will be hitting the road running, kicking off at The Brisbane Festival on September 13, moving through Toowoomba, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Port Macquarie, Caloundra, Wollongong, Sydney, Newcastle, Geelong and finishing up at the iconic Corner Hotel in Melbourne on October 15.
Lennard Promotions presents the long-awaited return of legendary vocalist and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member Eric Burdon and his band The Animals for their first Australian shows in nearly a decade.
One of Australia’s biggest musical exports The TEN Tenors have Christmas all wrapped up, announcing a 2016 tour and launching a new video which puts their unique spin on Mariah Carey’s Christmas classic ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ in aid of the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
After wowing Australian audiences in April this year at Bluesfest Byron Bay and in Sydney, Bluesfest Touring is bringing back Southern rocker JJ Grey and his band Mofro for a run of festival performances and headline shows this October.

“I have been touring in Australia regularly since 1974, and have actually lost count of how many times I have been here, but I think this tour will be number 29. It is my second home and I love it dearly. This year I celebrated my 50th year in the business and it just felt like the right time to take my final bow. It’s a daunting prospect and one I am preparing seriously for. I want this to be a night to remember in every way….tears, laughter and lots of rock and roll. This has been my life. Nobody in the world rocks as hard as the Aussies….and from me that’s what they’re gonna get….foot on the gas and go. So looking forward to this tour” ~ Suzi Quatro
