Hits & memories Live at the Foreshore! Picturesque Nobbys Beach, could you ask for a better backdrop for a concert? One of Australia’s most scenic beaches complete with a working lighthouse, a bustling harbour and all in the heart of Newcastle. “Live at the foreshore” returned to this venue, this time selling out with a week to spare. Record sales prove yet again this country’s fixation with past music icons is not going away, in fact it will only get bigger.
As they announce they’ll be opening for The Superjesus in October in Sydney and Newcastle, prog-rock outfit MOON have released the much-anticipated third single from their album, “The Orbitor”.

A perfect autumn afternoon into night, a well behaved crowd and music history live on stage, as a music lover could you ask for more?
Kicking off The Badloves the audience sang loudly to ‘Green Limousine”, “Lost” and “The Weight”. Lead singer Michael Spiby lead the 5000 plus crowd in song and a fitting warm up of what was to come.
Last month the Australian music industry was devastated by the tragic death of well-known and much loved production manager, Shane Cooper, and the serious injury of drummer Mick Skelton, in a car accident while on their way to a gig in regional Victoria.
If there’s one pop artist that multiple generations can relate to its David Bowie. There’s always a tinge of nostalgia listening to Bowie’s mellifluous tones whether it is listening to the Man Who Fell To Earth, Thin White Duke, Aladdin Sane or of course The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust, which signified his ‘comeback’ in 1972 after a brief lull in his pop career.
ZIGGY, THE SONGS OF DAVID BOWIE pays homage to Bowie, the pop phenomenon – the influential individualist with the uncanny ability to push boundaries and transform himself and the world around him. Performed by four of Australia’s leading contemporary musicians and performers – iOTA, Jeff Duff, Steve Balbi and Brydon Stace – Ziggy, the Songs of David Bowie is as multi-dimensional as the man himself.
