Hindsight: A Night for Simon

^^

When: Sunday 3rd December
Where: Factory Theatre

Some people make a mark, they make an impression, they leave a lasting legacy from which others gain joy and inspiration. Simon Holmes was one of those people. In person and in music, the founding guitarist of revered Australian band The Hummingbirds did all those things and more, creating a body of work which sings down the years with shining guitar pop brilliance, forging a path from the then hitherto completely underground music scene of Sydney in the late 80s/90s to a national and indeed international presence. The Hummingbirds gained a top 10 hit with their song 'Blush', their debut album LoveBuzz was named in the Top 100 Australian albums and Simon produced superb albums for the likes of Custard and the Fauves.

Glassjaw

^^

When: Monday 15th January
Where: Metro Theatre

Long Island, New York Post-Hardcore legends Glassjaw are today announcing that they will be gracing Australian shores in January 2018 in a tour presented by MJR Presents. The influential and revered outfit are renowned for their intense live shows and their bombastic and hard-edged music. The storied band, who have been instrumental in the formation of underground music scenes in Eastern USA and the UK, have released two studio albums including Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Silence (2000) and Worship and Tribute (2002), as well as EPs Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (1997), El Mark (2005), Our Color Green (The Singles) (2011) and Coloring Book (2011). This tour will be the first time that the band has been in Australia since 2014 for Soundwave and their "sidewave" shows with Dillinger Escape Plan and Dir En Grey. Heavy Mag described their set "Glassjaw are LOUD, yet fantastic. It takes a special kind of band that can manage to be so off kilter, yet maintain some degree of melody." and FasterLouder praised their Soundwave set - "Long Island’s Glassjaw had no trouble holding their audience’s attention, with their sprawling post-hardcore delivered with volume and vigour. Of course, it helps having such a charismatic frontman as the sky-punching and hip-shaking Daryl Palumbo."

George Thorogood & the Destroyers

^^

When: Wednesday 24th January
Where: Enmore Theatre

Currently touring extensively through North America, GEORGE THOROGOOD AND THE DESTROYERS will bring their Rock Party Tour to Australia for two shows only this summer. The Rock Party Tour promises to raise the bar, rock the house and tear off the roof like never before, unleashing at Melbourne’s Forum Theatre on January 22 and Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on January 24. Tickets for both shows go on sale at 10am Wednesday, September 27. My Live Nation members can be among the first to secure tickets during the pre-sale commencing at midday Tuesday, September 26. With more than 40 years of touring and recording, 15 million albums sold and 8,000 live shows, George and his longtime band – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – remain among the most relentless and relevant classic rock acts on tour today. The band has amassed a catalogue of hits that includes “Who Do You Love,” “I Drink Alone,” “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,” “Move It On Over,” “Get A Haircut,” and 1982’s anthemic, “Bad To The Bone.”  The band has released 16 studio albums – including six Gold and two Platinum discs on Rounder, EMI and Capitol – but it’s their powerhouse live performances that have made GT&D legendary. “We play for a different audience every night, and that keeps it fresh. There are people who’ve never seen us before, and we have to impress them. There are fans that keep coming back, and we want to surprise them,” Thorogood said. "This is my job,” he added. “I’ve always loved it, and I love it now more than ever.” From coast to coast, the critics agree. “I’m happy to say, after all these years, that George is still ‘Bad To The Bone’ and he’s never let go of the true spirit of rock ’n roll!" L.A. Daily News. “Thorogood is a guitar-blazing revivalist whose enthusiasm and showmanship make the music fresh.” Baltimore Sun. “He’s got charisma and personality to burn, a fact that becomes evident the moment he walks on stage.” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. This year Thorogood released Party of One, the first solo album of his 40-year-plus career, marking a true back-to-the-roots approach for the singer and guitarist.

George Ezra

^^

When: Tuesday 6th March
Where: Enmore Theatre

With Special Guest: Ainslie Wills

Bringing his unmistakable baritone pipes back to our golden shores, acclaimed 23-year-old English singer-songwriter George Ezra will be enchanting crowds in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane on a newly announced Australian tour next March. With his latest single, the joyous romp 'Don't Matter Now', fresh in our ears, Ezra is wasting no time in rescheduling some regrettably cancelled July shows. George Ezra first came to prominence back in 2015 as he rode the sunset across Falls and Southbound Festivals on the back of his hugely successful record Wanted on Voyage. A precocious debut from a young man with a voice well beyond his years, the album featured massive singles 'Budapest' and 'Blame It On Me' and went on to sell a total of 3 million units worldwide. He was also nominated for 4 Brit Awards, MTV Music Awards, Q Awards and the prestigious Ivor Novello - a tribute to songwriting talents forged in the shadows of heroes like Bob Dylan and Hank Williams. As anticipation for a follow-up album grows, the Bristol native has been busy wowing crowds in a series of “top secret” shows across the UK. Debuting new material and getting himself match-fit, he also took in a cheeky Glastonbury set, after which DIYmag.com proclaimed that we were in for a “smasher of a new record”. With a touring schedule that takes in some of the biggest festivals on the planet including Pukkelpop and Lollapalooza, George Ezra will arrive on Australian soil in peak form. Also appearing at these shows will be Melbourne-based spark Ainslie Wills. Dealing in powerfully quixotic song craft, Wills has forged her reputation with an enchanting voice and jaw-dropping musical dexterity. Her debut album You Go Your Way, I'll Go Mine was nominated for the Australia Music Prize and its tonal turns and lyrical twists will provide the perfect foil for Ezra's earthy propulsions.
