+LIVE+

^^

When: Thursday 1st March
Where: ICC Sydney

After a triumphant return to Australia for near-capacity outdoor shows in Brisbane, Melbourne and the Hunter Valley in November, one of the world’s biggest reunited rock acts +LIVE+ are returning this March. The reunited original line-up of +LIVE+ - Ed Kowalczyk (vocals, guitar), Chad Taylor (guitar, backing vocals), Patrick Dahlheimer (bass) and Chad Gracey (drums, percussion) received rave reviews for their recent run of shows, proving that they are back in force as they delighted fans with all their hits including Lightning Crashes’, ‘Selling the Drama’, ‘I Alone’, ‘Lakini’s Juice’, ‘All Over You’, The Dolphin’s Cry’, ‘Heaven’, ‘Run to the Water’, ‘Turn My Head’ and many more. "Our recent shows in Australia were some of the best of our career and while we had a blast, we missed our fans in Sydney, Perth and Adelaide, so it was really important to us to get back and give them the opportunity to see the show,” said Ed Kowalczyk. “We can't wait to see you all in March." With their seminal album ‘Throwing Copper’, +LIVE+ cemented themselves as one of the most popular bands of all time in Australia. Ticking over eight times platinum with that album, holding down five triple j Hottest 100 places and hitting gold, platinum and multi-platinum on every one of their seven Kowakczyk-fronted releases, +LIVE+ were the band that led a generation of teens from grunge back to rock with hits which continue to be staples across rock radio globally. The Sydney show will also welcome seminal 90s rockers The Tea Party to the bill, creating a night of alternative rock not to be missed.

A two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year and multi-Billboard Music Awards winner, Luke Bryan is one of the hottest stars in the country music world. He’s sold over 10 million albums, 40 million tracks worldwide and has chalked up 3 billion music streams. He performed the US National Anthem at this year’s Super Bowl, has headlined and sold out some of the most iconic venues across the States from New York’s Madison Square Garden to Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, and consistently sells out stadiums across the country, performing to over 5.6 million fans over the last three years.

Lynch is currently on the road serving as opening act for Brad Paisley’s Weekend Warrior world tour.

NOFX

^^

When: Friday 23rd March
Where: Hordern Pavilion

Support: Hot Water Music
Bad Cop/Bad Cop
Dad Religion

Punk rock fans rejoice! NOFX have confirmed two headline shows ahead of their appearance at the inaugural Download Festival! Joining forces with Hot Water Music, Bad Cop/Bad Cop and Australian supergroup, Dad Religion (members of Frenzal Rhomb, Bodyjar & Clowns), this is one show you don’t want to miss! What’s left to say about NOFX? The reigning kings of punk rock have been wreaking havoc in the scene since they exploded onto it over 30 years ago. Gold records, sell out shows, their own realty TV show…they’ve even penned a New York Times Bestselling memoir, NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub And Other Stories. Continuing to push the boundaries of their music, lyrics and good taste in a way that’s as endearing as it is infectious. For that reason it's remarkably apt that the band's latest LP First-Ditch Effort is also their thirteenth because ominous black clouds hang over this collection of songs that see frontman/bassist Fat Mike exploring self-loathing and mortality in a more raw and honest way than he ever has before.

When he formed The NPG in 1990 they went on together to create ‘Diamond & Pearls’ a record that sparked more hits on the Billboard charts than any other Prince album released since Purple Rain. These included “Cream”, “Gett Off” and of course “Diamond and Pearls”. For the NPG’s Australian tour, Morris Hayes, Kirk Johnson, Tony Mosley, Damon Dickson and Mono Neon will be joined by guitarist Homer O’Dell (from the Grammy-nominated Minneapolis band “Mint Condition”) and former NPG keyboard player and vocalist, Kip Blackshire. Special guests on lead vocals are Grammy-nominated Támar Davis and longtime Prince friend and bandmate, André Cymone – who was in Prince’s first acclaimed band, Grand Central. The NPG’s shows will be an opportunity to hear Prince’s music played by the people who made it with him. Get ready to laugh, dance and cry to some of his biggest hits one more time.

Michine Gun Kelly

^^

When: Wednesday 2nd May
Where: Enmore Theatre

Colson Baker’s rapid-fire lyrical talents earned him the nickname ‘Machine Gun Kelly’ or ‘MGK’ and helped him to shoot his way to the top of the hip hop world. Cleveland-raised MGK used rapping to get him through a hard childhood with no mother. After releasing several mix tapes starting in 2009, he experienced a meteoric rise in late 2011 when his performance at SXSW was seen by Sean Combs. MGK signed with Comb's Bad Boy imprint that night and released the single "Wild Boy" on the label that same year. MGK's debut album, Lace Up, landed in 2012. In 2013, MGK released The Black Flag mixtape, featuring likes of French Montana and Wiz Khalifa. Its success saw MGK off on a world-wide international tour, including his first visit to Australia. In 2015 he released General Admission, a dark, autobiographical LP. The album peaked at number four on the Billboard 200 and topped the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. However, the 2016 duet ‘Bad Things” with ex-Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello ushered in his first #1 hit on Pop radio and a Billboard Award nomination for Top Rap Collaboration, and truly cemented his name in the hip hop history books. In 2017, MGK issued his third studio album, Bloom which swiftly went gold and has sold over 6 million copies. In addition to the #1 single Bad Things the album also featured hit singles “Trap Paris” and “At My Best”. “MGK is one of the most versatile creators around and it is an honour to watch, and be part of, his evolution as an artist. His story is like no other, his sound is so raw and intense, and his new album proves MGK is on top of his game right now. Sean "Diddy" Combs. In addition to his musical successes, MGK has shown his acting chops being signed to the Netflix $30 million-dollar thriller, Bird Box (currently in production). In addition to Bird Box, MGK can next be seen starring in the upcoming Rupert Wyatt-directed, big budget, sci-fi film, Captive State (2018). Rounding out a phenomenal year, Machine Gun Kelly also landed the Winter 2017-2018 John Varvatos Campaign and partnered with Reebok for their Club C sneaker campaign.
