Beccy Cole, Adam Harvey, Felicity Urquhart & Darren Coggan

20 years on after forming a tour called "Young Stars of Country" 4 of the most recognisable names in Australian entertainment have reformed for an unforgettable reunion concert to celebrate their special anniversary.

While others have come and gone, tried and failed, these four have continued to rack up the accolades and remain at the forefront of the music industry today. The awesome foursome attribute much of their individual success and longevity to bonds and friendships made with fellow performers along the way. ADAM and BECCY have paired up on many occasions, most recently releasing the highly successful album ‘Great Country Songbook Volume 2’ in 2017. Their collaborative touring has taken them on 10 national tours together, there’s no doubting their onstage chemistry and mutual mischief. DARREN and FELICITY have not only shared stages together, but also the small screen in their capacity as presenters on Channel 7’s Sydney Weekender. Their most recent collaboration ‘Inasmuch’ was the final track Darren’s stunning 2017 release ‘The Wide Horizon.’

If we rewind back to 2001, FELICITY, DARREN, BECCY And ADAM shared in a Golden Guitar win for ‘Vocal Collaboration’ with their live version of Dolly Parton’s ‘Do I Ever Cross Your Mind’ recorded at the Gympie Muster during Beccy’s mainstage performance, a version we’re sure to hear once again when this reunion hits the road. 

DARREN COGGAN has spent much of 2019 touring to sell-out houses in his highly acclaimed ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ show, a mirror of the success he created with ‘Peace Train –The Cat Stevens Story’.

FELICITY URQUHART left Tamworth in January with a brand new Golden Guitar (her 8th) shared with her highly successful group Bennett, Bowtell and Urquhart and in April of this year, Felicity released her 7th studio album ‘Frozen Rabbit’ before hitting the road with Brad Butcher. BECCY COLE started the year with winning her 11th Golden Guitar for Female Artist of the Year, she has packed venues on her ‘Lioness’ tour since its late 2018 release.

Adam Harvey’s 2018 release ‘The Nashville Tapes’ was received to rave reviews and has seen him playing to sell-out crowds across Australia. His extremely sad song about losing his penis ‘When Willi’s Gone,’ is an absolute (tear) jerker.

Adding to their busy schedules and no doubt their most loved productions, Adam, Felicity, Darren and Beccy have 7 children between them, most displaying musical talents of their own …perhaps the NEW YOUNG STARS OF COUNTRY!

You can expect some very special moments on this show, many laughs and even a few tears but there is no doubting that there will be some breathtaking musical moments. When four artists come together after 20 years of love and respect for each other, the crowd is in for a once in a lifetime treat.

It has been more than two decades since iconic 1990s four-piece Southern Sons performed together. Now, in a special coup for music fans, the beloved band are coming back together for a 2019 Reunion tour, featuring all their classic hits. 

Original members Jack Jones, Virgil Donati, Geoff Cain and Peter Bowman will undertake a whirlwind tour throughout November and December, taking music lovers on a walk down memory lane as they traverse hits such as Hold Me In Your Arms and Heart in Danger to name a few. 

For Jack Jones, returning to his roots – where it all started and playing the songs that kicked off their music careers – is an exciting prospect. “I’m proud of everything I’ve done, but Southern Sons is where it all started for me,” he says. “So, I’m very excited about these shows. I’m very fond of these songs. The band was a great time in my life.” 

Southern Sons’ debut ARIA-nominated self-titled album hit #5 on the charts and spawned smash hits Heart In Danger, Hold Me In Your Arms, Always & Forever and Waiting For That Train. The first single, Heart in Danger was released in 1990 and cemented the band as a formidable force in the music scene. They would continue to dominate the charts for the next half a decade.

Their 1992 album Nothing But The Truth, continued their drive of success, with the singles Lead me To Water and You Were There. Three Southern Sons tracks were also included in the 1993 Sydney Dance Company’s production of Beauty & The Beast. 

Their third and final studio album – released in 1996 – Zone featured a guest appearance from Men At Work’s Colin Hay on the lead single Don’t Tell Me What’s Wrong. The band called a permanent hiatus in 1996, much to the dismay of music fans around the country.

‘Roy – A Tribute to Roy Orbison with Strings’
Golden Anniversary of ‘Only the Lonely’

2020 marks the golden anniversary of legendary Roy Orbison and Joe Melson’s classic hit, ‘Only the Lonely’ and to celebrate, Damien Leith will perform a strictly limited run of dates of his stage show, ‘Roy – A Tribute to Roy Orbison with Strings’.

Leith has a very close affiliation and connection with the Big O, having recorded and worked with the late Barbara Orbison and continues to write with legends that worked with Roy Orbison, regularly in Nashville.

Very few voices excite me, but I fell in love with Damien’s voice when I heard it. His unique voice has inspired me to write again, much in the same way Roy Orbison’s voice inspired me to write.
I believe Damien is going to be a big star. All the best to you, Damien. Looking forward to good things with you.’ Joe Melson (co-writer of ‘Crying’, ‘Only the Lonely’, ‘Blue Bayou’, ‘Running Scared’)

Performing in an intimate setting, accompanied by a sublime String Quartet, audiences will hear all their favourites beautifully arranged by celebrated composer Jessica Graham.

Songs like ‘Pretty Woman’, ‘Only the Lonely’ and ‘You Got It’ will have you tapping your feet while haunting ballads like ‘In Dreams’, ‘Leah’, ‘Running Scared’ and of course ‘Crying’ will have you yelling out for more.

‘Damien, I applaud you for doing a ‘Roy’ Album! Thank You! We wish you every bit of luck and success! You got it!’ Barbara Orbison

Damien Leith’s album ‘Roy – A Tribute to Roy Orbison’ stayed in the Aria top 20 charts for 22 weeks, was nominated for an Aria award and has sold multi-platinum.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of Australia’s finest voices, pay tribute to one of the world’s most celebrated voices, Roy Orbison. Mercy!

The year 2020 will see Australian music icon John Williamson celebrate his 75th birthday, his 50th Anniversary in the entertainment industry and also a final big year on the road.

It was 1970 when John released his first song, ‘Old Man Emu’ which kick started a five decade career crafting out some of Australia’s unofficial anthems, tender ballads and songs that captured the outback landscape and the people of the country. He has toured the country like few others selling over 5 million albums along the way and was recognized by being inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2010.

With all that he has achieved, his combined milestones in 2020 will also have John officially announcing that 2020 will be his last major year of touring.

2020 will be John Williamson’s ‘Winding Back’ tour. John is hesitant to say he’s retiring, but acknowledges he won’t continue the regular touring he’s done consistently during his enduring career. ‘I think I’ve spent more time in airport lounges and travelling highways than most and I’m looking forward to winding back and tending to my garden. I’ll still perform at major festivals, but 2020 is about saying goodbye to a lot of the towns I’ve visited almost annually in the past fifty years.’

Perhaps John’s greatest legacy is making Australians proud of their country; of who they are. 

Mallee Boy, True Blue, Fair Dinkum, or whatever you call him, there is no other performer who stirs the Aussie spirit as he does and 2020 could be the final time you get to experience his inspiring concert in your town or city.

Simon & Garfunkel’s music remains timeless, etched in the memories of those they touched at the time, & the generations since who have discovered their songs. Their close vocal harmonies & stirring songs penned by Paul Simon reflectedthe mood of the 60’s & defined the term ‘folk rock’.

‘Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert’  is inspired by their remarkable reunion concert in Central Park New York 1981. A nostalgic, fun, story filled performance that will touch you & transport you back to where you were, & what you felt, when you first heard their music.

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.

Australia’s Prince of crooning and love ballads, Harrison Craig, returns in 2019 to embark on a national tour honouring the emotional, intimate and soulful love songs of the great, Sir Elton John. After an extensive tour that saw Harrison perform an impressive 54 shows in 2017/2018 supporting his Kings of Vegas album, Harrison has never been more ready to belt out the love songs that were made famous by Sir Elton John and that are featured in the soon to be released musical drama motion picture based on the life of Elton, titled ‘Rocket Man’.


This show will be a delicately curated set of Elton John’s love ballads the likes of “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”, “Candle In The Wind”, “Sacrifice” and more, all performed with Harrison Craig’s trademark rich vocal tones and accompanied by piano.


Add to this a selection of Harrison’s own hits as well as showcasing his brand new original song that will be released later this year titled “Even If You Say So”.


Harrison Craig made his mark as he was crowned The Voice of Australia winning Channel 9’s “The Voice” in 2013 and since then Harrison has been a force to be reckoned with. He has achieved a #1 ARIA and platinum selling album with 2013’s “More Than A Dream” which spawned a sell-out national tour, followed by the release of his #5 ARIA Album with 2014’s “L.O.V.E” which remained in the ARIA Top 10 for six consecutive weeks. In 2016, Harrison indulged in his passion for the gentlemen who at one time or another performed on the glitzy strip of Las Vegas – the likes of Frank Sinatra Nat King Cole, Elvis Presley… to name a few, to inspire his third album “Kings Of Vegas” which also topped the ARIA Album chart.


As an artist, Harrison has had the unique experience of working with the likes of Seal, David Foster, Baz Luhrmann, Diane Warren, Barry Gibb (The Bee Gees) and Australia’s own Olivia Newton-John.


Harrison’s passion for creating a legacy doesn’t stop having written and released his first Children’s Book titled ‘Harrison’s Song’ in 2018 citing that no matter what your vice or hurdle is, you can overcome that. ‘Harrison’s Song’ is now part of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library – the early literacy initiative bringing free books and education resources to children in disadvantaged communities. So far more than 3500 copies have been sent to Australian families as a means of building vital early literacy skills and ensuring more children can start school ready to learn.


As a United Way Australia Early Learning Ambassador, for which he has represented since 2017, Harrison recently returned from a global philanthropic summit where he performed for the likes of Dr Ban-Ki Moon (8th Secretary-General of the United Nations), along with leaders from governments, the private sector and civil society, who came together in a bid to inspire greater collaboration between public, private and third sectors in creating sustainable global change.

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.

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.
