Kevin McCloud Bringing His Live Show To Australia – February 2020

BAFTA award winning broadcaster, TV host, writer, environmentalist, amateur balloonist and storyteller. Kevin McCloud is all that and a bit more that you don’t know about. Now it’s time for him to tell his remarkable story – in his own words, live on stage. Kevin McCloud will be doing just that in February 2020 as he brings his live show to Australia. 

Thu 13th February        Perth                  Perth Concert Hall
Sat 15th February          Adelaide           Festival Theatre
Sun 16th February        Melbourne        Hamer Hall
Thu 20th February        Brisbane           Concert Hall
Fri 21st February           Sydney             State Theatre
Sun 23rd February        Canberra           Canberra Theatre
Tue 25th February         Hobart               Wrestpoint

Kevin has been a part of our lives for the past two decades, since the last millennium in fact, as the presenter of the hit TV show Grand Designs.

The World According to Kevin McCloud is a live theatre event, with Kevin sharing stories from the show, as well as anecdotes from his eventful life.

Australia is an extraordinary place where luckily I feel very welcome,” Kevin says. “I like the can-do attitude that people have. It also has this fantastic energy about it, which is very appealing. So I’m looking forward to returning with my  brand new show.” 

It’s an evening that will entertain – and make you think. “I enjoy taking complex ideas and making them accessible,” Kevin says.

The World According to Kevin McCloud includes a Q&A session that allows audience members to ask Kevin questions and air their deep-seated concerns about architecture, DIY and cushions. Kevin will also dig into his own past in an entertaining survey of 1960s wallpaper, the Space Programme, McMansions, Community and the Planet.  Everything that makes our environment in fact.

Raised in a house his parents built in Bedfordshire, Kevin, the son of a rocket scientist, studied the history of art and architecture at Cambridge, where he designed shows for the Footlights theatre club and its stars, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie and Emma Thompson.

Kevin also studied opera in Italy and designed the famous fruit and vegetable ceiling at the Harrods Food Hall, of all things.  The Daily Mail described Kevin as a “heartthrob – the one your wives all fancy”, while The Guardian called him “a serious man of taste and integrity”. To prove that, he’s an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects and is now allowed to use grown-up scissors and power tools.

In a piece headed “Kevin McCloud Is, Hands Down, The Greatest TV Host of All Time”, VICE dubbed him “the most puzzlingly charismatic TV host ever to grace our screens … Kevin McCloud is a character. He’s the person you dream of being sat next to at an otherwise dull dinner party.” Kevin, however, objects to the word ‘puzzlingly’.

In short, The World According to Kevin McCloud gives you the chance to get up close and personal with the man himself.  “Come one, come all,” Kevin says. “There’ll be some very poor music and maybe a little construction mayhem. No hard hat necessary. Hope to see you there.”

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.

Splendour in the Grass 2011 – ‘Woodfordia’, QLD [Festival News]

PLENDOUR IN THE GRASS – the annual, ephemeral city of sounds that exists solely for sweet music and good times will transform Woodfordia, near Woodford, south east Queensland from Friday 29 to Sunday 31 July. The Woodfordia campgrounds will open from 7am Wednesday 27 July until 5pm Monday 1 August. Please note the entire festival site including the three main stages – Amphitheatre, Mix Up Stage and GW McLennan Tent – will operate on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only. For those camping onsite, the event area will open from 9am Thursday 28 July with a bunch of spaces and entertainment in full swing to keep you busy right across the weekend.

Due to the very heavy traffic congestion when arriving and departing SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS 2010 we have spent the past year working on initiatives that will simultaneously ease traffic on local roads and within Woodfordia, whilst also creating a greener event. Borrowing from other international music festivals that have experienced similar issues, and in an effort to radically reduce traffic congestion, we will be implementing a car pass system which will encourage carpooling. More info on this plan and all of SPLENDOURs environmental initiatives will be supplied in the coming weeks.

Sampology’s Super Visual Monster Mash – April/May 2011 [Tour News]

  Sampology mixes YouTube clips, exerts from films, TV shows and vintage VHS finds, turning your ordinary club night into a crazy AVDJ mashup.

The technical aspect to Sampology’s Super Visual AVDJ shows is pretty darned impressive. He’s madly manipulating video via two turntables and a mixer and triggering animations from his drum machine, all projected live onto a big-ass widescreen. But it’s Sampology’s cheeky sense of humour, sprinkled across the exerts from film and TV shows, filmclips, YouTube clips and vintage VHS finds that takes your ordinary club night and turns it into a stupidly exciting and crazy fun visual mashup.

Its like dancing your butt off at your favourite movie of all time, and laughing the whole way through.
