Vika & Linda Bull have taken over the Australian music landscape since their multi-platinum conquest of pop radio with the Black Sorrows in the late 80's. They've sung their way through diverse pathways and are currently working on their first full length album of original material in 17 years! Not too long ago, Vika's voice echoed through the theatre in The Etta James story, her powerful vocals leaving audiences in awe, while Linda performed a series of shows paying tribute to country legend Willie Nelson.
Joe Camilleri is a living legend and he has an awarded status by Rolling Stone to prove it. His youthful good looks and energetic performances belie the fact that his career spans 50 plus years as a singer, songwriter, musician and producer that had him inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame. Even though Joe has a string of new music, his Hit & Run, Shape I'm In, Harley & Rose and Chained to the Wheel will always be synonymous to this musical giant from The Black Sorrows.
Former King of Pop Russell Morris' The Real Thing, Hush, Sweet Sweet Love, Wings of an Eagle and many more will forever echo through the passage of time. His most recent releases, the Blues Trilogy albums - Sharkmouth, Van Diemen's Land and Red Dirt Red Heart all reached Top 100 on the ARIA Album chard and garnered nominations for ARIA Awards for Best Blues & Roots Album.
From Mondo Rock to Daddy Cool Ross Wilson has been the Eagle Rock of a singer, songwriter and producer that has made this a Cool Cool World filled with Chemistry. Ross is one of Australia's most awarded, respected and well-known artists with 26 ARIA Top 40 hits to his credit.
Kate Ceberano won Best New Talent in 1984 at the Countdown Awards and has never looked back. Her exotic good looks and massive talent has had her career soar, with multiple Gold and Platinum albums to her name. Racking up 25 albums over 35 years, she was recently seen at the St Kilda Festival as a surprise guest for a couple of numbers with rocker Dallas Frasca.
One of Australia's most prolific musicians, singer, songwriter, producer, platinum album seller and ARIA Hall of Fame inductee, Briad Cadd's Ginger Man and A Little Ray of Sunshine amongst many others will forever haunt you and leave you nostalgic and humming for hours. He's written songs for the likes of Joe Cocker, Ringo Starr, John Farnham and many more.
Last but not least the man known as JPY is none other than John Paul Young that makes up this amazing crew of legends. He went from sheet metalworker by day to a singer by night and the rest is history, becoming a regular on Countdown. From Yesterday's Hero, and I Hate the Music to the original Love is in the Air, he was the hottest act in the country. He has secured his place in music history just like the rest and if you miss this tour, you'll never forgive yourself. GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!
