Live Review : Def Leppard + Live + Electric Mary at Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne – November 18, 2015

Def Leppard at Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne - November 18, 2015
I will declare an interest from the outset – I love Def Leppard – and have been a fan since I bought their debut EP “Getcha Rocks Off” in 1978, saw them as a support band to Sammy Hagar and Ozzy among others, and then devoured everything they released through the 1980s.

Elton John – 2011 Australian Tour Announced! [Tour News & Tickets]


“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

Chugg Entertainment is proud to present the much-lauded return of the one and only Elton John to Australia this summer.

Trial Kennedy ‘Living Undesigned’ National Tour – May/June 2011 – Tour News

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.

And then… well, then a whole lot of bad mojo went down. The band’s original bass player left, there was illness, the daily struggle of balancing day jobs and personal relationships with artistic careers, and the band parted ways with their management and label.

BRISBANE GETS A NEW MUSIC EVENT – Track & Field – June 4th, 2011

  Track & Field is a brand new boutique music event taking over Brisbane’s Old Museum on Saturday, June 4. Featuring the cream of local talent, the line up includes indie-popsters Last Dinosaurs and Ball Park Music, party starters The Belligerents and Mitzi as well as DJ sets from Hungry Kids of Hungary, The John Steel Singers and The Honey Month.

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

to make it feel like a regular warehouse party. Kind of like you and your friends taking over an interesting space every 3-4 months” outlines McCullough.
