The Living End plays The Hi-Fi Sydney, Moore Park - 21st November 2012

The Living End plays The Hi-Fi Sydney...


Music Sydney Entertainment Entertainment Quarter Celebrities Sydney

The Living End played at popular Sydney club, The Hi-Fi, Moore Park, Wednesday, and will be back there again tommorow night for the hardcores.


THE LIVING END are thrilled to announce that they will embark on an unique and ambitious tour this year. THE RETROSPECTIVE TOUR will see Australia’s legendary rock’n'roll sons play each of their six albums IN FULL, back-to-back, start to finish, across 35 shows in five capital cities.

This will be the very FIRST TIME each album has been performed live from start to finish, and the feat will almost certainly be the first time any Australian band has undertaken such an inspired tour. The Retrospective Tour will not take in stadium-sized venues either. Perth, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane and of course Melbourne will get seven shows across seven nights in intimate club venues, each with a limited capacity. Seven shows and only six albums you ask? Well, eponymous Australian classic album 'The Living End' will get two airings in each city.

The idea of The Retrospective Tour is to give a big TLE-style 'THANK YOU' to all those fans who have bought the albums, come to shows, shown their support and been intensely loyal to the band over the past 15 years. There is something there for everybody, whether you are a die-hard fan of the seminal 'The Living End' album or fell prey to the hard-rockin' riffage presented on The Ending is Just the Beginning Repeating, or something in between. This will be the fans only chance to watch TLE pull out their most memorable, fiery live shows, performing some never-played-before favourites alongside career classics.

When The Retrospective Tour rolls into Sydney in the last week of November the band will be joined by Melbourne indie rock stalwarts EVEN for three consecutive nights, Sydney locals CABINS will take support duties for two shows and AREA 7 will once again join TLE for both performances of their debut self titled album. Spinning tunes each night during the Sydney stint will be 2manyPJs more commonly known as PHIL JAMIESON from GRINSPOON.

Set List:

How Do We Know Raise The Alarm White Noise Moment In The Sun Waiting For The Silence Make The Call Loaded Gun Kid 21st Century Hey Hey Disbeliever / Most People I Know (Think That I'm Crazy) Sum Of Us


Six albums. Each one, a milestone: The time we thought we were indestructible. The time we lit a fire under the establishment. The time we wondered if it was all worth it. No.6, if we put it under the scalpel, is the album that hunts down the truth, asks the big questions and demands answers. THE ENDING IS JUST THE BEGINNING REPEATING is The Living End’s most honest album yet.

Chris Cheney, Scott Owen and Andy Strachan have always forged their own path, irrespective of passing fads, haircuts, and any vogue for keytar-wielding debutantes. Their songs require of the listener a social conscience and mosh pit stamina, and give in return a visceral experience that’s flawlessly executed. It’s this attitude that’s earned the band four platinum and one gold albums.

Winding up the tour cycle that followed 2008’s WHITE NOISE, Cheney went to New York to buckle down and write, before the songs were jammed out organically in a South Melbourne rehearsal room. Finally the demos were taken to 301 Studios in Byron Bay and Chris’s studio Red Door Sounds in Collingwood for a reworking with producer Nick DiDia — who has put the Midas touch on records by The Living End-approved Bruce Springsteen and Rage Against the Machine — imported especially for the occasion from Atlanta. Brendan O’Brien (Pearl Jam, Powderfinger, AC/DC) took the reigns as mixer. The results are astonishing.

Georgia May Jagger in Sydney, Australia; Sunglass Hut floats on water - 14th November 2012

Georgia May Jagger in Sydney, Australia; Sunglass Hut floats on Sydney Harbour with celebrities and product pitch...


Music Brands Sydney Entertainment Celebrities Sydney

Sunglass hut... the sunglasses retail company is back to publicity tricks using the good old fashioned celebrity sells... in this case with Mick Jagger's daughter, Georgia May Jagger, and friends, aboard a floating product promotional boat on Sydney Harbour. Not a bad combo and it achieved the goal - free headlines.

Looking at Georgia May Jagger, it’s impossible to miss the shades on her famous parents. Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall. Some press is saying she’s the very best blend of her parents’ charisma and good looks. Ah, the benefits of being a famous offspring... and good work opportunities often come your way including product promotions.

In Australia on a promotional tour with Sunglass Hut, she stars in their current advertising campaign with boyfriend musician and model, Josh McClennan. She told Fairfax Media "We’d never worked together before – so it was an interesting experience. Kind of a laugh seeing your boyfriend posing – we had a lot of fun", she said. Guest stars at tonight’s A-list party aboard the Sunglass Hut floating store, they are checking out the sights of Sydney "We’re climbing the Harbour Bridge today, we’ve seen sharks at the aquarium and we’re in love with Bondi Beach".

Georgia is a hot, smart and music appriciating Brit. "There was always music in the house growing up – I love all kinds from blues through to rock 'n' roll. I tried the violin and guitar when I was young, but never really learned to play…and my Mum doesn’t play anything either."

Georgia May is familiar with the modeling and advertising world with cosmetic contracts, major advertising campaigns and her fair share of magazine covers including UK Vogue, UK Elle and this month’s Australian Harper's Bazaar. Yes, we know its got something to do with her famous parents, but good luck to her. That's the world and that's the business. "I’m really trying to have fun with it [modeling]. Obviously, I enjoy the travelling and getting to meet people from all over the world. It’s wild to be working in London one day and then in Australia the next – I just want to keep doing it for as long as I can".

After modeling, she hopes to move into a career in photography. She mentions her mum's Helmut Newtown pictures as inspiration. "I was at university before my career took off and my plan is to be a photographer – my dream would be to travel and take pictures" she said.

Moving like Jagger in the Sunglass Hut campaign...

When it comes to style, the model is a fan of Vivienne Westwood – she’s the face of the new Westwood jewellery line – and has a try-anything-once approach to fashion. "I pick up style from everywhere I go, I like to mix it up. I‘ve got some incredible vintage pieces from my mother’s wardrobe - amazing dresses from her Studio 54 days”. And what about her father’s closet – has she managed to get her hands on any of Dad’s iconic threads? “My sister [Lizzie] has a lot because she’s got the tall skinny figure. I do have one thing of my Dad’s that he doesn’t know I’ve got it and if he did he’d want it back immediately…for a museum".

Sunglass Hut floating store is moored in Darling Harbour, Sydney from November 15 - 18. 10 per cent of all profits from the Floating Store will be donated to OneSight, a leading global vision care charity.

About Sunglass Hut...

Put Them On...

This gig will offer lots more than just pro boxing stories, but true boxing fans will of course lap up what Mike has to share. Head of Markson Sparks!, Max Markson, is the mastermind behind the Australian tour. The Aussie leg is going ahead, but unfortunately for Kiwi's, the New Zealand leg is now happening due to political and visa issues.

He is coming to Australia to share his story from his perspective - to share his demons, his victories, his life experiences - and to pass these stories on, not as a man on a pedestal, not holding himself up as an example of how to live, but to share a very real, very powerful, human story that will profoundly affect everyone who hears it. But That's Not All...

The 'Day Of The Champions' show also features some of the finest entrepreneurs on the planet - and you will hear their stories firsthand.

These entrepreneurs are real people who are making great money in the current economy by embracing savvy investment opportunities, new online business strategies or implementing clever marketing techniques to traditional ' bricks and mortar' businesses.

Sure, we all know its pretty tough at the moment, but this is not the time to bunker down or put your head in the sand - this is the time for innovation, reinvention and tenacity- its a time where real champions are made.

Mike Tyson's 'Day Of The Champions' Will Inspire Anyone Who Aspires To Be More Than They Are,So Secure Your Ticket NOW *tour starts in Brisbane on 16th November. See the official website for full details.

Fozzy headed up by Chris Jericho to perform in Sydney and Melboune, Soundwave Festival in Australia...

The full Soundwave Festival 2012 card is as follows:

February 23 - Brisbane, Australia - Soundwave 24 - Sydney, Australia - Soundwave

When USA-born Canadian-raised performer Chris Jericho was growing up in his tentative hears he had two main goals. He wanted to be a pro wrestler and a rock star. These days he is both.

Having completed a 12 year run in the squared circle, in which he snatched a total of 29 championships at the professions highest level with the WCW and WWE, including a stint in Japan, he's now wrapt to be fulfiling the second part of his dream, fronting heavy metal act Fozzy.

His band is not quite the main event yet, but they do have a passionate fan base... just as greats such as KISS developed, which helped take them to the megastar level. Jericho is cool to see Fozzy take its place on the undercard of Soundwave 2013 (Sydney Showground, Sunday, February 24), alongside metal gods Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax.

Fozzy was founded in 1999, when guitarist Rich Ward and members of his legendary rap/metal act Stuck Mojo, sought out a cool meathod to to do justice to their own scene idols.

Jericho was recruited to sing under the alias Moongoose McQueen and together they devised a set of live covers with material from the likes of Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne, WASP and the Scorpions.

To the band's surprise, they were signed to a record deal and released two albums [Fozzy and Happenstance], mostly containing cover tracks.

Jericho told the Fairfield Champion newspaper...

"I've been playing in bands since I was 12-years-old," he said. "I didn't just wake up one day and say I'm gonna be the singer in a band. I've been playing in bands - singing and playing guitar - my whole life basically.

"When I was a kid I wanted to be in a rock band and I wanted to be a wrestler - those were the two things that I wanted to do and I didn't know I was going to do either one of them, but I just decided this is what I want to do.

"I think sometimes kids say they want to be an astronaut or a geologist or whatever and move on to the next thing. But for me, I never moved on. It was always about both of those things."

*The Soundwave 2013 tour starts in Brisbane on the 23 February and at this stage all tickets are sold out.

Funhouse broke Australian box office attendance records, reaching a staggering 17 sold out shows and 220,000 ticket sales at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, 12 stunning shows at the Sydney Entertainment Centre and 11 at Brisbane’s Entertainment Centre.

‘The Truth About Love Tour’ is primed to deliver awe-inspiring performances in the now trademark Pink style - thoroughly captivating audiences with her rockin’ vocals and a formidable catalogue of hits, all delivered with a kick-ass attitude and spectacular staging.

The 2013 tour announcement follows shortly after the release of Pink’s sixth studio album, the ARIA #1 debut, triple-Platinum ‘The Truth About Love’, featuring the massive airplay and ARIA #1 smash ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’ and Top 10 second hit single, ‘Try’.

Jennifer Lopez; JLO to tour down under in Australia: Dance Again World Tour...

Jennifer Lopez is hot hot hot.

Celebrity is an often a strange thing, but Lopez has long lived an interesting life, since getting her break as a dancer on US TV show In Living Colour in the early '90s. In the ensuing years, through her many hit albums (On the 6, J.Lo, This Is Me... Then), occasional hit movies (1998's Out Of Sight was good!) and a navel-bearing Versace dress that garnered world attention just thought it was pretty"), she's become a global superstar.

At 43, she's enjoying something of a career revival. Her two seasons as a judge on American Idol (she was the nice, nurturing, constructive one) reintroduced her to the public and reinvigorated her career, which had floundered for much of the past decade.

Thanks to the show, her recording career has taken off again, too, and her 2011 single 'On the Floor' became her most successful in eight years. It was also the most viewed video on YouTube that year.

"American Idol made people look at me differently, which surprised me because I always thought people knew how I was," she explains. "I'd always get confused when the media would paint me to be different - it was so weird to me. But with reality TV, you really are exposed for who and what you are. I was lucky people saw the real me, and that changed some people's opinion of who I was."

For the past year, she's been dating her former back-up dancer Casper Smart, 25, who's now the choreographer on her Dance Again World Tour, which heads to Australia in December. "We work well together creatively. He inspires me, I inspire him, and we can do something that someone who doesn't have that kind of love for you can't", she told media outlet News Limited.

It's another reason she left American Idol this year (happy to let Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj duke it out at the judge's table), despite advice it would hurt her career. "I loved Idol, but I had to go with my gut that it was time to get back to doing what I do," she says. "It's fun to be a judge and it was a great thing for me. But, creatively, it wasn't fulfilling to me as a person."

And that means going back on tour, kids in tow. "They watch the show almost every night - they love it, they're excited by it." Max and Emme, it seems, are starting to show signs of their parents' talent.

Jennifer Lopez brings her Dance Again World Tour to Australia from December 6 to 18. For more information, visit

KISS and Motley Crue rumoured Australian tour for March 2013...

KISS and Motley Crue‘s heavily rumoured Australian tour in early 2013 is likely to be happening in March, rather than January or Feb at this stage of the game.

A post on a tour fanpage – crediting ‘Brett Bartlett’ as the source – indicates the heavy rock titans’ joint tour will now be happening in March, not January as has been predicted all along.

KISS will be touring in March...pushed back from January.

Rumours of the Kiss and Motley Crue tour first surfaced in September when Motley drummer Tommy Lee mentioned on his Facebook page that he had "A little break till Jan 2013 then off to Australia with Kiss n Motley”.

Fans on the KISS Army Australia forum are speculating that the tour could include an appearance at Adelaide’s Clipsal 500 V8 Supercars Race, which also takes place in March. The live music lineup for the weekend of racing is to be announced in the near future.

Black Sabbath to tour Australia...

One of the most influential bands of all time have announced their widely rumored and highly anticipated reunion for their first Australian shows in nearly 40 years. Original band members - the Prince of Darkness himself: Ozzy Osbourne, bassist Geezer Butler and guitarist Tony Iommi will make a thunderous return in April 2013.

Tickets for these once-in-a-lifetime shows will go on sale at midday on Thursday, November 8th.

In June, 2012 Black Sabbath headlined the 10th Download Festival at Donington before a crowd of 100,000. The group followed that show in August with a headlining set at 2012’s sold-out Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago.

Black Sabbath is currently recording the band's first new studio album in more than 33 years, helmed by seven-time Grammy winning producer, Rick Rubin. The album is due for release in April 2013.


Blondie to tour Australia...

Blondie is an American rock band, founded by singer Deborah Harry and guitarist Chris Stein. The band was a pioneer in the early American New Wave and punk scenes of the mid-1970s.

Heart of Glass, Atomic, Rapture, Hanging On The Telephone, Call Me, One Way Or Another, Picture This, Rip Her To Shreds, Maria, Denis, In The Flesh, Dreaming, Union City Blue and The Tide Is High... all super hits from the one and only Blondie aka Deborah Harry.

If your a fan of the 80's this is a can't miss as Blondie was one of the hottest acts in the world and still maintains her universal appeal, even as we approach 2013.

6th Dec 2012 SYDNEY ENMORE THEATRE 8th Dec 2012 SYDNEY THE DOMAIN, ROYAL BOTANIC GARDEN (HOMEBAKE 2012) *Hobart, Melbourne and Adelaide concerts also likely to go ahead. Visit the official website for updates.

Deep Purple and Journey to tour Australia together...

English rock pioneers Deep Purple are heading down under in 2013, bringing four decades worth of music to our shores.

Deep Purple's classics such as Smoke on the Water, Hush, and Highway Star are all going to be played, as well as a few not so well known numbers.

Journey background...

If you didn't already know, Journey is an American rock band formed in 1973 in San Francisco by former members of Santana and Frumious Bandersnatch. The band has gone through several phases; its strongest commercial success occurred between 1978 and 1987, after which it temporarily disbanded. During that period, the band released a series of hit songs, including 1981's "Don't Stop Believin'", which became in 2009 the top-selling catalog track in iTunes history. Australia is blessed to have them performing in early 2013, so seriously consider checking them out as they tour with Deep Purple.

Australian Artist News...Delta Goodrem injured; Will still perform Australian shows...

Singer Delta Goodrem has advised Aussie fans she will be fit enough to perform at her scheduled concerts, despite suffering nasty burns to her legs in an accident last Friday. Ms Goodrem was forced to abandon a concert at Sydney's State Theatre on Friday night, after succumbing to the injuries suffered when she spilt boiling water from a humidifier onto herself. "Unfortunately the pain and effects from treating the burns got greater and greater as the night progressed and ultimately there came a point that I could not continue performing," Ms Goodrem said in an official statement. "I want everyone to know that I am recovering well and will be in fine form for my forthcoming Melbourne shows next week. Thank you again for your support and understanding." Australian based Promoter, Paul Dainty, advised patrons at the Sydney concert would be entitled to a generous 50 per cent refund. "Delta showed incredible courage and dedication to her fans by soldiering on through the pain and dizziness to perform a brilliant first hour of her show to a full house at the Sydney State Theatre," Mr Dainty said. "We are all just so proud of her trying to do the best for her fans and at least deliver half of her show under such difficult circumstances." Ticket agency Ticketmaster will contact all patrons regarding the refund procedure. Ms Goodrem is due to play at the Hamer Hall at the Melbourne Arts Centre on Wednesday, November 7 and Thursday, November 8.
