Dream Theater – two shows only

By | Past Tours

The undisputed heavyweight champions of Prog Metal are celebrating 25 years of unequalled mastery of their craft with two very special performances in Sydney and Melbourne next month.

“Dream Theater are MAJESTIC… With plenty of heart, aggression and unbridled joy to hand, these lords of progressive metal ensured all who sat before them left with many images and words to share of the experience. (this) is all about enjoying, appreciating and exalting in a band whose musicians are at the precipice in ability… A veritable tour de force!” – 5/5 Lee Carter, MetalWani.com , April 2017.

At a time when bands appear and disappear as quickly as twitter hashtags, it is a testament to Dream Theater to have created such a legacy which enables them to tour the world to sold out crowds for over two decades.

Being infrequent visitors to Australia, this is a rare chance for fans to experience a mouth watering and career defining set list that spans 25 years in well over 2.5 hours; with a production to match the grandeur of the songs and the splendour of the talent delivering them.

Dream Theater are John Petrucci (guitar), John Myung (bass), James LaBrie (vocals), Jordan Rudess (keyboard) and Mike Mangini (drums).

“For just under 30 years Dream Theater have basically been the hallmark of knowing how to play your instrument properly. And piss all over everyone else whilst you’re doing it.” – Metal Rules.

“Whenever a band of the magnitude of Dream Theater comes to town, the excitement is palpable… with fans itching to share in an experience that only takes place once every few years.” – FasterLouder.

“Unbelievable live shows and a rabid fan base worldwide. Dream Theater continue to be at the top of their game.” – Music Feeds.

David Bowie famously said of The Human League ‘’I have seen the future of Pop Music” and he wasn’t wrong. Decades later, they are still in high demand and touring. For the first time in eight years, they’re on their way to Australia for a special run of theatre shows. The Human League have become pop icons in their own lifetime, with a career in which they have earned a reputation for fantastic live shows, sold millions of albums, and inspired two generations worth of recording artists.

They have had No. 1 singles across Australia, Europe, the US, and undeniably given us some of the most memorable pop songs ever. Fans adored their unique mix of sound and image – from their beginnings as an artsy, avant-garde electronic band, to their chart-topping new wave hits of the 80s. The Human League’s landmark album, Dare, which was released in 1981, saw them blowup worldwide.

It spawned the smash single, Don’t You Want Me and followed on with favorites such as Love Action (I Believe In Love) and Open Your Heart. Dare was so successful that it went on to be included in Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Albums of the 80’s. In turn, the pop group constantly pushed forward, staying together and playing together.

The story of The Human League encompasses three very distinct line-ups, all of which have their merits but one thing unites them; The Human League are not just a pop group – they are possibly the last great pop group. Believe. Pseudo Echo will support The Human League on their East Coast tour of Australia. They formed in 1982, releasing their first album, Autumnal Park, in 1984 which skyrocketed the band to household name status across the country.  Their second album, Love an Adventure, spawned another string of hits including its title track, Don’t Go, Try, Living in a Dream and their remake of the Lipps, Inc. song Funkytown. 

This particular songbrought the group their biggest international success and spent seven weeks at No. 1 in Australia from December 1986.  In 2012 Pseudo Echo celebrated their 30th anniversary and released their sixth studio album, Ultraviolet.  Later this year, they will release their new single Nutbush City Limits.

Tickets go on sale for all East Coast shows on Friday 11th August, 2017.

Dream Theater – Australia 2017

By | Past Tours

For nearly three decades of continually redefining the parameters of hard rock, progressive heavy metal and surpassing critical expectations, devoted fans will be in their element as Dream Theater announce their two only Australian shows.

Having last toured here in 2014, Dream Theater have arguably become the prototypical progressive metal band. And, not by coincidence, they are also probably the most successful purveyors of the form. Dream Theater have a legion of fiercely diehard fans around the world and expect nothing less than a smart, fully immersive, experiential journey through otherworldly soundscapes from each and every live performance.

They have been nominated for a Grammy Award, have sold more than 12 million albums worldwide, earned countless accolades and shared stages with iconic bands Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Yes and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Dream Theater have also just been nominated for this year’s Progressive Music Awards for International Band/Artist of the Year.

Dream Theater are John Petrucci (guitar), John Myung (bass), James LaBrie (vocals), Jordan Rudess (keyboard), and Mike Mangini (drums)

International superstars Culture Club have announced they will be touring Australia later this year. Culture Club are led by front man, Boy George, currently endearing himself to new Australian audiences as their favourite coach on TV’s top rated show The Voice. Thus, this tour is bound to take Culture Club to a large legion of new fans.

In 2016, their triumphant return sold out some of the world’s most iconic venues including the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles (two nights) and London’s famous Wembley Arena. Culture Club proceeded to sell out shows across the rest of the world including the UK, Europe and USA, making their resurgence one of the most noteworthy success stories of today. Musically, they are sounding better than ever as Boy George and the rest of the original line-up including Roy Hay, Jon Moss, and Mikey Craig are now joined by an incredible group of great musicians including extra percussionists, keyboard players, backing singers and a horn section. This bigger line up now stands as an incredible musical revue that adds a whole new element of warmth and sound to their live shows, all of which are consistently receiving glowing reviews.

Special guests will be Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey, who will play hits live for the first time in 27 years. For nearly three decades, fans of the Thompson Twins have been waiting for more live performances from one of the biggest bands of the 80’s. Thompson Twins had huge hits – songs such as ‘Hold Me Now’, ‘Doctor Doctor’, ‘You Take Me Up’ and ‘Love On Your Side’ provided the soundtrack for so many people’s lives worldwide in the mid-eighties. It’s been 32 years since Thompson Twins have been to Australia and no doubt fans will welcome Tom Bailey back with open arms. Says Tom: “This will be the first time I’ve sung the Thompson Twin’s hits in decades. It’s taken a long time, but now I’m really looking forward to playing those songs to some of the fans that were there first time around.”

Featuring Grace Knight on vocals and Bernie Lynch on guitar and vocals, Eurogliders took the charts by storm in the 1980s. In 1984, Eurogliders released their album This Island, which spawned their No. 2 hit single, ‘Heaven (Must Be There).’ Another Australian top ten album, Absolutely, followed in 1985, which provided three further top ten singles, ‘We Will Together’, ‘The City of Soul’ and ‘Can’t Wait to See You.’ Grace and Bernie, along with their superb band, have reunited to once again captivate audiences with their sophisticated and high-energy brand of pop. Eurogliders will play all shows (except Perth).

The Human League will be special guests for Perth audiences only (as part of the Culture Club tour). The Human League have sold millions of records, inspired two generations of artists, written some of the all-time great classic pop songs, had No. 1’s across the world and yet still remain fiercely independent. Watch this space for more Human League headline shows to be announced in other cities in the coming weeks.

UB40 are the UK’s most successful reggae band. Naming themselves after the unemployment benefit form, UB40 formed in 1978, releasing their debut album “Signing Off” in August 1980 – considered by many to be one of the greatest reggae albums ever released. With nearly four decades of success that has spanned over forty hit singles including “Here I Am (Come And Take Me)”, “Red Red Wine”, “I Can’t Help (Falling In Love With You)”,  “The Way You Do The Things You Do

Drummer Sly Dunbar and his bass playing musical partner Robbie Shakespeare are Sly And Robbie, one of the greatest Rhythm sections in the world. The duo teamed up in the mid-1970’s after establishing themselves separately in Jamaica as professional musicians.

When looking at Inner Circle and their 20-year history in the reggae field, there is much more than what meets the eye. The Jamaican bred, Grammy Award winning quintet, are one of the world’s most respected reggae groups with a long string of successes stretching back to the mid-70’s.
