For those of us lucky enough to have lived it the first time around it’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years since the release of the ‘Matchbook’ album. On Saturday night at the Palais Theatre in Melbourne the near full house got a chance to relive the memories live again. We may all be a little older but Ian Moss has lost nothing in momentum or ability to engage and play an electric guitar like an extension of his own anatomy.

Live Review : Mirusia & The Original Seekers At Melbourne Recital Centre – 2nd November 2019

Review by Natasha Wyborn

Mirusia & The Original Seekers At Melbourne Recital Centre – 2nd November 2019 Photographer: David Jackson

It’s hard to believe the act I was witnessing in 2019 originally formed way back in the early 60’s. The Seekers have been a part of Australian music culture for close to 60 years. Formed as a folk quartet in Melbourne in 1962 the band has travelled the work and left its mark alongside some of the biggest bands of the 60’s. To put The Seekers popularity into perspective at the height of their career the seekers shared the same bill with The Rolling Stones and the Beatles whilst drawing an estimated crowd of 200,000 to the Sydney Myer Music Bowl. The original lead singer Judith Durham has left the quartet however the remaining three original members Athol Guy, Keith Potger and Bruce Woodley continue to delight fans both within Australia and abroad.
