SUZI QUATRO – FINAL AUSTRALIAN TOUR

Duet Productions Presents
suzi
“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

Propagandhi “You Call That A Knife?” Australian Tour 2014 – Supports Announced

propTouring Australia for the first time since the brutal Failed States album was released in 2012, Propagandhi bring their celebrated and feared combination of punk rock and melodic hardcore to ten shows in nine cities this May/June!

Their first release on Epitaph Records, Failed States willfully careens between brazen metallic tendencies and the ragged punk rock roots of Propagandhi’s earlier work, further raising the lyrical and musical bar set by their critically-acclaimed 2009 release, Supporting Cast(e). One of the band’s most forward thinking and musically varied albums to date, Failed States reaffirms the Canadian four piece as not only one of the most consistently innovative bands musically, but as a damning voice in socio-political affairs.
