ELTON JOHN & HIS BAND RETURN TO AUSTRALIA THIS SUMMER
“Singing in an unfaltering voice, and projecting an exuberant air, Mr. John behaved more like a master of ceremonies than a guest of honor. His patter between songs was affable enough to defy the dimensions of the arena.” New York Times
“Elton played and sang awesomely, with gale-force gusto. Lord knows how many times he’s performed these songs, but somehow he still manages to sound as if he means every word of them.” The Telegraph UK
On May 13, Trial Kennedy releases its long awaited second album, Living Undesigned. To celebrate, the band is taking their show on the road for a string of album tour dates around the country in May.
On paper, you’d have to wonder how Trial Kennedy is even still a band.
Two years ago, the Melbourne rock outfit were perched at the edge of something big. After two killer EPs (2004’s Present for a Day and 2005’s Picture Frame), their Nick DiDia-produced debut album, New Manic Art, was garnering the sort of critical acclaim every band aspires to. Songs such as ‘Neighbours’ and ‘Colour Day Tours’ became instant Triple J anthems. The band toured hard, earning a burgeoning Australian fan base to go with their stellar live rep, and coveted support spots with the likes of Fall Out Boy and Birds Of Tokyo. Their star was rising.
Australian singer-songwriter Matt Walters will launch his new album at this show featuring his unique blend of folk influenced pop music. Having toured Australia extensively, the 25-year-old has supported the likes of Ben Folds, Paul Kelly, and Liam Finn.
The debut album Farewell Youth was produced by Paul Mckercher (Sarah Blasko, Augie March) and Francois Tetaz (Bertie

Track & Field is the brainchild of artist managers Ben Preece and Stu McCullough that sits between a club night and a festival. “Ben and I had been kicking the idea around for a while now, and both liked the idea of a boutique event that happened a few times a year, instead of the one big event at the same time and location every year. The idea is
