Live Tour Info

The USA quartet first achieved worldwide success with their 1994 album, Throwing Copper, which spawned the huge hits Lightening Crashes, I Alone and All Over You and has now sold over 10 million copies worldwide. This is the first time Australian audiences will be introduced to Live’s new front man, Chris Shinn, who joined the band in 2012.

 

Their latest album, The Turn, marks the band’s ninth studio album and original members, Chad Taylor (Guitar & Backing Vocals), Patrick Dahlheimer (Bass & Percussion), Chad Gracey (Drums & Percussion), who are joined by Chris Shinn (Lead Vocals & Guitar), have re-invigorated its sound with effusive energy and massive hooks.

 

‘’Love it, The Turn, is easily the best Live album since Throwing Copper”

albumoftheyear.org

 

‘’The Turn is full of surprises and a brand new energy. The band hits harder and heavier than before,

which is a very welcome adjustment.”

thefive10.com

 

‘’Newcomer Chris Shinn is a fine replacement’’

Keerang! Magazine

 

 “Shinn, sincerely, is a better singer than the former face of the group. He has a ripe fervor that few artists in the rock genre can boast these days’’

about.com

 

“Shinn’s ability to mix up his vocals have added a diversity to the band that was previously missing’’

Rush on Rock

 

Supporting Live will be Chocolate Starfish, one of Australia’s most successful bands of the 1990’s and widely regarded as the best live band of their era.  The band’s lead singer, Adam Thompson, became fast known as an entertaining frontman and still to this day, holds a captivating and theatrical stage persona.  Chocolate Starfish produced two Top 10 albums and six Top 50 singles including ‘Your So Vain, ‘Mountain’ and ‘Four Letter Word’.

By | Past Tours

KISS JOINS WITH THE COLLINGWOOD FOOTBALL CLUB FOR COMMEMORATIVE TOUR T-SHIRT
They are the giants of their respective fields and have two of the most fanatical, dedicated fan bases imaginable. It’s a match made in heaven!
Legendary rock band KISS and the biggest sporting club in Australia, the Collingwood Football Club, today announced they have teamed up to produce a very special, one-off commemorative T-shirt – KISS MAGPIE ARMY.
This collector’s item has been produced to celebrate the iconic band’s return to Australia in October to perform for the “KISS Army” as part of their 40th anniversary world tour.
It’s no secret KISS has had a love affair with Australia which goes back to their very first visit 35 years ago. The band loves being here and was keen to offer fans a fun “Australian-specific” item of merchandise to mark this special anniversary tour. But what?
In August 2013 Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons became co-founding partners of the only football team of any kind in the greater Los Angeles area – LA KISS ™. The team is part of the US Arena Football League. Suffice to say Stanley and Simmons are huge football fans and so an alignment with the biggest football club in Australia seemed the perfect fit.
This amazing T-shirt features incredibly detailed drawings of the four iconic KISS faces on the front with the KISS and Collingwood FC logos, while the back is emblazoned with the words ‘KISS MAGPIE ARMY”.
This incredible one-off collector’s item – which is a combined KISS, Collingwood Football Club and AFL promotion – is sure to be hugely popular with both the KISS Army and avid Pies supporters.

 
The T-shirt retails for only $40 plus postage & handling and is available for purchase for a strictly limited time period from Thursday July 16 9.00pm until Friday October 2 through both the KISS (www.KISSONLINE.com) and Collingwood Football Club (shop.collingwoodfc.com.au) websites.
Fans may also purchase the T-shirt in a bundle with a Gold Reserve concert ticket for the Friday October 9 show at Rod Laver Arena for a reduced price of $140, from Ticketek: http://premier.ticketek.com.au/shows/show.aspx?sh=KISSCOLL15
KISS arrives in early October for a two-song performance on the Grand Final Footy Show live from Rod Laver Arena before heading to Perth to begin their Australian tour.
Expect to see a multitude of KISS MAGPIE ARMY T-shirts during the tour!

Cypress Hill Tour Info

With over 18 million albums sold worldwide, a massive back catalogue of hits and their dynamic live show, the group, who have sold out all their previous Australian Tours, will be performing at The Enmore Theatre in Sydney on December 8th and The Forum in Melbourne on December 11th.

Cypress Hill have continually pushed musical boundaries since their inception in the early 90’s. The release of their self-titled debut album in 1991 sold over 2 million copies and established them as one of rap’s most potent groups. They followed this up with their sophomore release ‘Black Sunday,’ which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Chart in 1993 and recorded the highest Soundscan ever for a hip-hop group.

 

Coin Banks Info

Hailing from Perth, Coin Banks has released his long awaited debut solo release HEADS, featuring Ta-Ku, Homeboy Sandman, 20syl and Atom from C2C, Like from PAC DIV and others. Coin has been featured as the feature artist on Rage, Triple J and RTR FM and had his second single Think Of You added to full rotation on Triple J.  His EP has received critical acclaim and has shown what he is capable of a solo artist.

Cutting his teeth in Perth hip-hop group The Stoops, Coin left in early 2012 to pursue new projects – including the Coin & Ta-ku collaborative album, the full-length Letters To The Sun collaboration with producer Akouo, and membership of rising live hip-hop collective UPNUP, whose lone track “Whatever Man” earned Triple J Unearthed profile and a Macklemore & Ryan Lewis support.

Coin has also spent the last year crafting away on some of his best music to date, gearing up to debut as his first solo release in 2014.

HEADS will be closely followed by its companion piece, ‘Tails’. Both releases show Coin Banks striving to make music that is original and carries a social and conscious message, drawing on inspiration from the Native Tongue movement and its modern day equivalents such as Top Dawg Entertainment. Coin is currently working on his full-length album, with Ta-Ku and Nottz listed as contributors.
