If a 'Map to Paradise' existed, what would this map look like?

Come on a journey to discover what underwater paradise might look like and see that dreams do come true. Through a collection of character-driven sea tales, the birth of the global movement to protect the sea will unfold as a long and arduous quest. Travel from the underwater lands of ice and corals to the headquarters of the United Nations to be inspired by diverse ways of saving the sea from perils that threaten life itself. Finding paradise rests upon the dreams of individuals and nations, such as the likes of a prince, a president, a pirate and an island chief, who will show the world the magic of what a bountiful underwater paradise means for humankind.

On this journey, you will visit the old wealthy fishing ports of Europe and some remote islands in Asia where an old chief sets sail to spread the knowledge of what a new world might look like, while a president shares a telling tale about a mermaid legend and you’ll meet a fisherman from a sleepy fishing village of Greece, who laments that he is the last generation of fishermen – as he says there are no fish left to fish. Meanwhile, in his neighbouring country of Italy, lives a scientist, who dreams big and beyond his time. He meets a prince, who helps him on his quest to save the ocean, while a marine biologist studying whales in Antarctica learns how to step outside of the world of science to do everything in his power to change the fate of our dying underwater world, to turn it back into a brilliant underwater paradise like it once was.

Saving our ancient oceans and rediscovering the paradise humans once enjoyed is possible, but we must move quickly to enshrine the world’s big blue map.

COLIN HAY BRINGS THE IMMIGRANTS BACK DOWN UNDER!

“Hay is more than a master musician; he is a master storyteller … There’s more to Hay than the Grammy-winning, world-beating rock band of yesteryear. These days, there is no pretention. There is just the music, stripped to its primal form. And the stories. Don't forget the stories” - BrisbaneTimes.com.au

Following the announcement that Colin Hay will be performing at Bluesfest Byron Bay’’s 30th birthday, Colin has today announced he will also be returning to Australia with his merry band of immigrants for shows in Thirroul, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra and Sydney in April 2019.

Colin Hay, best known as the frontman for Australian hit makers Men at Work, is receiving continued accolades, for his troubadour-style solo performances, spanning the last 30 years, with the release of his 13th, and critically acclaimed album, Fierce Mercy, as well as currently touring the world as a member of Ringo Starr’s All-Starr band.

Colin returns to Australia with his Los Angeles based band, including, from Cuba, San Miguel Pérez (guitar/tres/vocals), Yosmel Montejo (bass/vocals) and Jimmy Branly (drums). Rounding out the front line of the band, is Peru’s own Cecilia Noël (percussion/vocals) and Scheila Gonzalez (keyboard/flute/ sax/vocals) whose family hails from Guatemala. All these musicians are the real deal and are legends in their own right.

Musically, Hay gives a bit of all of his career in the setlist and a lot of who he is personally between the songs … The show is like catching up with an old friend. - Noise 11

The 2010s have been breakout years for this career artist and has included performances on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live and ABC’s Greatest Hits; sharing the stage with Of Monsters and Men, Milk Carton Kids, Choir Choir Choir!, Kings of Leon; being publicly cited as an influence by artists as distinct as James Hetfield (Metallica), Jeremiah Fraites (The Lumineers), Troy Sanders (Mastodon) and The Infamous Stringdusters; as well as the completion of a documentary film about his career entitled Waiting for My Real Life, named for one of his best known solo recordings. Now finding himself in the unprecedented place of having both ’80s fame and a growing cross generational audience, it's possible that Hay is having the time of his life.

Fierce Mercy, Hay’s 13th solo album released in 2017, was recorded in Los Angeles and Nashville and explores themes of love and loss, mortality, and even the odd UFO sighting, but always with the singular perspective and insight that define Hay’s work.

Alongside the thoughtful storytelling in his songs, Hay’s shows are peppered with hilarious anecdotes from his, often surreal, experiences in the world of rock music.

"Touring the land of the wombat and smashed avo toast is one of life’s great joys. Since we were last there, the Cubans have been hassling me, and asking when we’re going back. As it happens, we’re coming back in April ‘19, delightedly so I may add, and more than likely coming to a city within striking distance of where you be. We’re a touring band, and touring is what we love to do; it’s a way of life”, Colin Hay said. “Come join us for a good night out, what’s better than that?"

Special guests in Melbourne will be the wonderful Vika and Linda Bull. For 30 years, the glorious voices of the Bull Sisters have comprised one of the most distinctive, versatile and emotionally charged sounds on the Australian music landscape. Since their multi-platinum conquest of pop radio with The Black Sorrows in the late 1980s, the sisters have forged diverse pathways into soul, gospel, blues, country and the island music of their Tongan ancestry.

Opening the shows in Thirroul, Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra and Sydney will be the celestial Cecilia Noël.

Cecilia Noël is a bandleader, and enjoyed legendary status in Los Angeles and beyond, during the 90’s and 2000s. This was an Afro-Cuban inspired, salsoul funk extravaganza - a unique band, fronted by a uniquely talented woman, from the streets of Lima Peru. She is passionate, flamboyant, exotic, and most of all, a true music artist. Her last album, Havana Rocks, won the Cuban Grammy (Cubadisco), for Best International Album. She lights up every stage she steps on, and will open these shows with a mix of both traditional and original contemporary songs.

Fans seeking tickets for Colin’s shows are reminded to only buy tickets from the official ticket agents listed below so as to avoid “reselling” sites such as Viagogo who typically advertise heavily online and often mislead consumers into paying much higher prices than necessary.

General public tickets go on sale at 10.00am local times, Friday, 24 August 2018. On Tuesday, 21 August exclusive pre-sales for Colin Hay fan club members and venue/Ticketmaster members will commence at 10.00am until 10.00am on Thursday, 23 August.

Fierce Mercy is out now through Sony Music Australia.

The HIT Network Presents Australia’s most revered pop artist of the new millennium, Dami Im is set to take her all new national tour on the road in 2019. Bringing her exciting band along, concertgoers can expect to see something special in Dami’s live show; an array of established hits and fan favourites from X Factor, power ballad and international Eurovision smash, “Sound of Silence” and a mix of new material including ‘Dreamer’.

Dami is no stranger to the stage, since performing in intimate venues along the east coast of Australia, Dami reveals “I’ve always felt most confident when I’m on stage performing and it’s been a dream of mine to live this life as a performer. It’s going to be a very special tour where I get to show my musical evolution as I sing my previous repertoire as well as the new music that I’ve been working on this year.”

Dami Im has amassed a multitude of hits and achievements during her relatively short career. The Korean born singer and musician first came to national prominence when she won season five of The X Factor in 2013. Dami walked off The X Factor stage victorious and strode, without delay, into the #1 spot on the ARIA charts with her platinum self-titled album DAMI IM.

Since then, she’s released three more acclaimed studio albums, including the Gold accredited 2014 release, classic carpenters, which peaked at #3 on the ARIA album charts and gave rise to a sold-out national tour. Dami then travelled to Sweden to represent Australia at The Eurovision Song Contest 2016—where she placed second in the world performing in front of an audience of 200 million with her international hit, ‘Sound of Silence’. Early 2018, Dami released her fourth studio album I HEAR A SONG which peaked #3 on the ARIA Album Charts.

TEG DaintyNice Events and David Roy Williams Entertainment are excited to announce that Postmodern Jukebox will return to Australia and New Zealand in September and October 2019 following four hugely successful tours in as many years. 

To usher in the upcoming Twenty-Twenties, the famed time-twisting musical collective will circumnavigate the globe with their Welcome to the Twenties 2.0 Tour. The tour is meant to prepare the world for a new decade—one that Postmodern Jukebox creator Scott Bradlee hopes will see a return to the style and craftsmanship that typified the music of past generations.

“Last time around the 'Twenties gave us Jazz, America's one true art form. Who knows what is possible in the 2020s?" says Bradlee. "One thing that is for sure is that there are a lot of folks that are tired of the clickbait headlines, mindless reality TV, and smartphone addiction that has only served to divide people in the last decade. We're using our small corner of the pop culture space to tell people to forget their troubles and come join us for a night of celebrating true musical talent and timeless style - live and in real life."

“When creating a touring version of the Postmodern Jukebox concept, we work on pairing the right talent with the right material and building a unique and amazing experience for Postmodern Jukebox fans,” Bradlee says. “Get ready for the most sensational '20s party this side of The Great Gatsby."

Started by Bradlee in 2009, Postmodern Jukebox (PMJ) has gone on to amass over one billion YouTube views with 3.5 million subscribers, and have chalked up more than 1.7 million fans on Facebook. For the past half-decade, PMJ has toured the world, playing hundreds of shows to sold-out houses on six continents. They’ve also performed on shows like “Good Morning America,” topped iTunes and Billboard charts, and caught the attention of NPR Music, NBC News and a wide array of celebrity fans.

RICKI-LEE is one of Australia’s most loved popstars. She became a household name in 2004 when she appeared on Australian Idol - and has since gone on to become a multi-platinum selling ARIA award nominated singer/songwriter, selling over 1 Million records to date and generating more than 25 million streams and views of her music & videos. She’s had 2x #1s on the ARIA chart, a #1 on the UK Club Chart, reached #7 on Japan’s Billboard Hot 100 chart – and has released 3x Top 10 albums and 3x Top 40 albums with 7x Top 10 singles and another 8x Top 40 singles on the ARIA Charts. She has been nominated for the prestigious ARIA Award for Song Of The Year, and her songs have featured in Hollywood blockbuster films like Sex & The City 2. As a recording artist her releases have achieved 5x Gold, 4x Platinum and 2x Double Platinum certifications and she has toured with some of the biggest artists in the world including Jason Derulo and the Backstreet Boys as well as her own sold out tours around Australia and Japan.

She has well and truly turned her 15 minutes of fame into a successful 15-year career. So, in celebration of her first 15 years in the music business – Ricki-Lee will be performing in a special 2 hour concert at The Palms at Crown in Melbourne. The first part of the concert will feature songs from the Golden Globe winning & Oscar nominated film A Star Is Born. The second part of the show will see Ricki-Lee take a trip down memory lane, performing songs that were defining moments for her on Australian Idol including ‘I Have Nothing’, ‘Proud Mary’ and ‘Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough’ - as well as her massive hits ‘Can’t Touch it’, ‘Do It Like That’, ‘Raining Diamonds’, ‘This Time I Know It’s For Real’, ‘Sunshine’ & ‘Not Too Late’.

Much like Lady Gaga’s character in A Star Is Born – Ricki-Lee was discovered in the most unlikely of places; her lounge room, when she got up to sing with the band at her dad’s birthday party. The band immediately asked if she would do some shows with them – so at the age of 15, she began performing around her home town of the Gold Coast, and just three years later her life changed when she appeared on Australian Idol. After watching the film Ricki-Lee said “I was so emotional when I saw the movie - not just because of the music and the tragic romance of the film, but also the parallels that I drew to the path that Ally’s character took in making her entrance into the music industry. Because for me it was very similar – all it took was one person to see me and believe in me and give me a shot, and then the rest was history. One minute you’re living your life, and the next minute you’re thrust onto a stage in front of all these people – and all of a sudden everyone knows your name and your whole world is turned upside down. This movie really spoke to me on a deeply personal level.”

Not just a fan of the movie – Ricki-Lee says “I’m such a huge fan of Lady Gaga, both as a songwriter and an artist. She has such an incredible voice and to me, these songs have become new classics.” Speaking of the songs in the film, she says “I haven’t been able to get the songs out of my head since I first heard them. I’ve been singing them every day around the house, and in the car or the shower. My husband plays the songs on guitar at home and we sing them together – and I swear, I cry every time he sings Bradley Cooper’s part in ‘I’ll Never Love Again’! I cry every time I listen to that song, and I bawl my eyes out every time I watch the movie – so I think I’m going to struggle to get through it without crying on stage! This film and these songs really stir something up inside of me - so I’m really looking forward to performing these songs live!”

Late in 2013, James Reyne played two sold-out shows at The Basement in Sydney, exciting fans with a new live offering, A Crawl To Now.

Showcasing a broad selection of Australian Crawl tracks plus songs from his time with Company Of Strangers and his solo hits, the acoustic trio of James with Tracy and Brett Kingman, paid homage to an exceptional body of work. They brought the house down.

With a self-confessed desire to keep up a hectic touring pace, “I’m always playing a gig somewhere, I just love to play live”, Reyne is poised to take A Crawl To Now on the road, playing right across the country through April and May this year.

James’s output in recent years has been prolific, his most recent long player, 2012’s critically acclaimed album ‘Thirteen’.  Music critic Ed Nimmervoll, in reviewing the album said, “He’s a better singer today than ever, better songwriter, better lyricist. Every track on Thirteen tells you how important all three of those aspects of his craft are to him.” 

His songs have provided the soundtrack to endless Australian summers, including “The Boys Light Up”, “Reckless”, “Beautiful People”, “Lakeside”, “Daughters Of The Northern Coast”, “Fall Of Rome”, “Hammerhead”, “Motor’s Too Fast” and “Slave”.

 Now, following countless requests at live shows and online, James is ready to explore this material further,and will feature songs selected from throughout his career - over twenty albums representing an extensive catalogue, spurning 19 Top 40 hits (seven with Australian Crawl, 12 solo) and 10 Top 10 albums.

Recognised for his extensive charitable undertakings, Reyne received an Order Of Australia in January. His iconic song ‘Reckless’ has featured heavily in the promotion for the forthcoming new series of TV show  ‘Puberty Blues’, and the recent re-release of the Australian Crawl catalogue on itunes resulted in a #4 ARIA Album Chart position for ‘The Greatest Hits’.

Reyne said today, "Whilst I’m not inclined to get all nostalgic, it feels like the right time to go through this material and present it songbook style.  The songs we’ve chosen are a lot of fun to perform - and itscratches my never-ending itch to tour, to play live!”

Australia’s greatest soul voice Doug Parkinson presents a night of soul and rock classics. The electric current runs high generated by the powerful 8 piece band and the unique voice of Doug Parkinson.

Joe Cocker and Ray Charles were irresistible forces. Cocker combined a love of American soul music with standout interpretations of other people’s songs. Feelin’ Alright,  Hitchcock Railway, The Letter and You Are So Beautiful.

Ray Charles (The Genius) completely revolutionised popular music with his reinvention of songs in many genres. Rock, Soul, RnB, Gospel, Jazz and Country.

Aretha Franklin ‘The Queen of Soul’ was one of the most successful, and highest selling female artists in the world, acknowledged my many as being one of the greatest female voices of all time. So great was her impact on popular music, she is known worldwide simply as ‘Aretha.’

There couldn't be a more appropriate singer in Australia to showcase the ultimate tribute to both Cocker and Ray Charles than the gravelly soulful voice of Australian singing legend Doug Parkinson, often described as a "Rolled Gold Superstar." a master of interpreting others’ songs. 

Doug Parkinson is also a multi-award winning artist of soul, rock and box office hit musicals. A highlight of Doug Parkinson’s show includes his own hit records, the iconic Dear Prudence, I'll Be Around, and Unchained Melody.

Throw in a handful of Motown classics and some redefined songs from your youth, exciting, funny and emotional stories from Doug's life on the road and you have the recipe for an unforgettable nights entertainment. 


“You made me laugh, you made me cry.”  

“Wow! What a band, world class.”

“We didn't want the night to end.” 

“Your voice gets better and better.”

“Your voice, band and show belongs on the world stage.”


Just some of the comments from Doug Parkinson's audience.


From “sold out” theatres around Australia this new show is a night to remember and a night not to be missed.

Without question, AC/DC are one of the greatest rock bands in history. Their mammoth power chord roar became one of the most influential hard rock sounds of the '70s and is synonymous to rock culture to this day. It continues to be one of the defining sounds of rock and metal, and combined with the larynx-shredding vocals of Bon Scott (1974 - 1980) and Brian Johnson (1980+), the band enjoyed commercial success well into the 2000s, even up until 2016 selling out stadium shows across the globe.

LET THERE BE ROCK - ORCHESTRATED is a world first and brings to light a unique production scale that brings the thunderstruck sounds of AC/DC in to a world all of its own, featuring a line-up of some of the world's best rockers coming together to form a super group and backed by a 30 piece Symphony Orchestra to power out the biggest sound ever created! 

You want Rock? You want Grit? You'll hear the full orchestrated rock arrangements of many AC/DC classics including 'Highway To Hell', 'You Shook Me All Night', 'T.N.T', 'Whole Lotta Rosie' and so many more in this two-hour concert production. Imagine 'Back in Black', the seminal anthem of generations, with the power of the 30 piece Symphony Orchestra conducted by Australia's most celebrated conductor - George Ellis, behind one of the most rocking super bands that can be assembled! 

Titled in recognition of AC/DC's fourth Australian album released in 1977, Let There Be Rock - Orchestrated will feature ALL the hits from AC/DS's career from both Bon Scott and Brian Johnson era's. With a second to none line-up featuring AC/DCs own Simon Wright, Noiseworks founding bassist Steve Balbi, Guitar legend Joel McDonald, former bassist for ARIA Hall of Famers The Angels James Morley, Mondo Rock bassist Paul Christie, and featuring the vocal stylings of Tim 'Ripper' Owens of Judas Priest and introducing the most powerhouse female rock vocalist in the country Cynthia Gallie on lead vocals, this show will prove to be one of the most exciting Rock 'N' Roll events to hit Australia this year.

“Viva La Vita” – living the life. The Italian Tenors named their new album with a purpose – to regain passion and the Italian way of life. Furthermore they have drawn a line between popular Italian pop songs and classical music. The three handsome looking Italian opera singer Mirko Provini, Sabino Gaita und Evans Tonon starting with their second album a high-end interpretation of Italian pop and movie songs.

The three have performed professionally in operas for years, so it is all the more exciting for them to be able to combine their classical origins with their soft spot for pop music. Their début album "That's Amore" broke the boundaries of genres, conjuring up a glorious piece of art with the Tenors' very own musical energy, which fully captivates listeners.

For all of them it is an extremely exciting journey to connect their musical heritage with their passion for popular Italian music. It is incredible how three classically trained artists take a walk in the realm of pop music and have interpreted great Italian pop songs and canzoni in their own unmistakable way. “Viva La Vita” took a step further and exudes the Italian way of life. 

Of course, such a blend between the two musical styles has been done before - but only The Italian Tenors can warm your heart after only a few notes. With their personality, their Italian charms and their tuned sophistication that is rarely ranked this high: the three extremely talented opera singers have taken the leap into another field and challenged to win the hearts of their audience. Mirko Provini says: “Our new album mirrors a wealth of emotions. We created a whole new and fired atmosphere with our interpretations of Italian pop songs. The melodically feeling of Bel Cantos, popular orientated music, is timeless and worked both in classical and pop music. And that’s what we wanted to show.” 

The three never left their path while they’ve worked on plenty wonderful Italian pop songs. They arranged a musical adventure with passion and abandon combined with talent. “It is for us as Italians to create a breathtaking mix of passion and culture to build our own composed world. That’s always a concept of our work”, gushes Evans Tonon. 

Magical moments await the audience, evoked by the opulently arranged fireworks of the sounds of those great Italian pop gems, charmingly and no less professionally celebrated by genuine experts in their field. This cocktail of multifaceted voices performing Italian hit songs with an international flair - this is what makes "Viva La Vita" an especially seductive musical experience, making (not just women's) hearts beat faster all round!

Brilliant, notable and exciting are just three adjectives the Italian Tenors can be described with. Their new album connects to their traditional sophisticated music, is a homage to Italian songs in generally and tries to bring passion and emotions to a fulminated expression. The tenors made sure that nearly forgotten jewels of Italian music culture were not missing, either. They put a dignified monument to the Italian way of life with their new album “Viva La Vita”. 

Sabino Gaita, whose parents are from Sicily, was born in Milan, here he studied piano, clarinet and saxophone, before receiving his formal training as a singer. He has performed worldwide and lives now in Turin. 

Mirko Provini was born in Luino, next to the Swiss border. He has studied sociology and education; and music at Milan’s conservatory. 

Evans Tonon is a trained singer, actor, voice actor, and overall performer. He is passionate about all forms of entertainment, with a special interest in Broadway theatre and old black and white films.

Californian rockers, Smash Mouth, have just announced they will return to Australia in November 2018 to play shows across the East Coast. The band will bring their unique sound that they have well and truly created and a style that is comfortably their very own.  

Smash Mouth were regular chart toppers and rode the wave of the 90’s ‘alternative’ music scene, selling in excess of 10 million albums worldwide. They are no strangers to our audiences with songs like the All Star, Can’t Get Enough of You Baby, Walkin’ On The Sun and celebrated Monkees classic I’m A Believer, all of which have become radio staples and included on party playlists everywhere!  

Last year, the multi-platinum and Grammy-nominated band celebrated the 20th anniversary of their debut, smash-hit album “Fush Yu Mang”. Out of nowhere, the single Walkin’ On The Sun was an immediate international sensation and quickly shot to No. 1 on the US Billboard charts, and eventually boosting the album sales to over 3 million copies in the US alone. In the two decades since, Smash Mouth have not slowed down. In fact, they are still vibrant as ever with their groovy beats, memorable melodies and fun lyrics.

Their 1999 release ‘Astrolounge’ was a brilliant follow-up album boasting three top- ten hits (“All-Star”, “Then The Morning Comes”, and “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby”) and sales for that album nearly doubled those for their debut. Smash Mouth’s third, eponymous release featured the smash hit “I’m a Believer”. Around that time, Smash Mouth crossed over into the film world by providing the musical heart of the soundtrack for “Shrek.  

Smash Mouth is indeed – at its core – about having fun.

Australian icon JOHN WILLIAMSON is back on the road with ‘The Butcherbird Tour’ which he will take across Australia over the next 12 months from coast to coast and sharing with his audiences his biggest hits and his latest musical contributions.

His new tour comes off the back of his forthcoming new album by the same name set for release in August 2018. The new album and tour continues to see John celebrate and pen the stories into song that he continues to be passionate about, the country, the people and the fight for what is right.

“I’m still having fun touring, I guess I will keep going till 2020 (my 50th year in the industry). My new album, ‘Butcherbird’ has come up amazingly considering I didn’t promise or plan another album of all new songs at all. Everyone is very excited and so am I! Its’s all about entertainment, just like my shows and I can’t wait to get on the road with this new show”, said John Williamson.

Have created some of Australia’s most recognised unofficial anthems, he is firmly cemented in the nation’s musical culture. John’s impressive career spans more than forty five years and his tributes to legends and unsung heroes and tender ballads have captured the spirit of the nation in song unlike any other. His honest and passionate songs are synonymous with the country that inspires him and connect him with his countrymen regardless of age, sex or creed.

Add to this his ability to deliver unforgettable live concert experiences that combine the perfect blend of humour, romance and campfire stories woven together by his music. You can understand why he is one of the most in-demand live performers in Australia.  

Inducted into the ARIA HALL OF FAME in 2010 and the recipient of more awards than he cares to mention, there is no question that JOHN WILLIAMSON is the real deal, stands by what he represents and is unashamedly proud of the country he loves. For this artist, whilst the awards are a nice recognition, there is no doubt it is the reaction from his audience that is the most important.

Along his journey he has been inducted into the prestigious ARIA Hall of Fame, secured three ARIA Awards, 25 Golden Guitars, MO Awards, APRA Awards, Platinum and Gold albums and over 4 million album sales to name just some of the recognition he has earnt.

It all started when he penned that classic OLD MAN EMU back in 1970. From this ‘silly’ song (as he often refers to it) that went to #1 for five weeks, he has continued to create hits including TRUE BLUE, COOTAMUNDRA WATTLE, RIP RIP WOODCHIP, RAINING ON THE ROCK, THE BIG RED, WINTER GREEN, SALISBURY STREET, GALLERIES OF PINK GALAHS and HAWKESBURY RIVER LOVIN’ to name but a few of the 400+ songs written by the multi-award winning songwriter.

He continues to be at the forefront of significant events in Australia, presenting the voice of Australia when it is needed most. From the 2011 Rugby League Grand Final through to the 2000 Sydney Olympics, Steve Irwin's memorial, the Bledisloe Cup, Sir Donald Bradman's memorial, the Rugby World Cup, the first Bali Bombings memorial service and the list goes on. He is ingrained in Australia's history as much as its future.

You can call him what you want, Mallee Boy, True Blue or just plain Fair Dinkum; but there is no denying that after more than forty years in the music industry, John Williamson is truly an Australian icon.

John will release his new album ‘BUTCHERBIRD’ in August 2018 and is touring Australia performing his biggest hits to sold out shows.
